A lot going on, but I’ll update you as things are complete.


In the meantime, ye scurvy dogs, it be Talk Like a Pirate Day. When I be getting’ ready to head to the sandbox, me crew needed an appropriate nautical response. Them soldiers use “Hoo-ahh!” and them Marines along with the SeaBees use “Ooorah!” We happened to be getin’ ready fer deployment just about this time of year, so we took the hint and used “Arrgh!” as our spirit buildin’ response.

Me newly initiated chiefs marched out and presented me with a jolly roger flag.

I was choked up. All I could be sayin’ was “Arrgh!”

And today, 8 years later, I gots me parrot to complete the ensemble.
