Goose Creek, all the way. Took the AAA Defensive Driving Class yesterday. Know where I'm heading for vacations! Oh Rhett, Rhett, where shall I go? Frankly Scarlet, I dont give a damn as long as its my hometown of Charleston! (liberally altered with all intent included). Got a computer and internet and we've downloaded Skype. Whoo hoo!
just found the book Rhett's People at The Big Lots when I made my first trip there this summer. At $3, frankly Scarlet, I decided it was a perfectly wonderful bargain-because as God is my witness, I'll never pay full price for a book again!
my "cub" is in the Great Lakes still....thinks he's classing up in a week or so...in the meantime, they have mandatory classes this week. ex: Suicide Prevention, Financial classes, Liberty "smarts"... etc... I think that's a great thing...all those "boring"<----(his words) I think is great.....sometimes, these sailors need some common sense kind of classes as well.......
