Memorial Missives

  • Of the, times man has experienced, but which have gone away that I experienced personally- my service along the East-West border in Germany is among the best. It is among my earliest adult memories and thinking of that time evokes the most powerful recollections I have.

  • God, so innocent- I think I was what- 19? when I got there. Due to the closeness to the border and our mission it was made a very tough assignment by design. We ran 4-8 miles every morning, worked 12-16 hour days and were in the field constantly. I worked for the first 3 months without a day off.

  • In 1985 my unit spent 350 days in the field.

  • When me and Paul Spackman got off the bus a guy was there sweeping the street for extra duty. He said,"Welcome to Hell gentleman."

  • As most posts ours had been a German Kaserne during WWII. The facade of our headquarters building still had the Reich symbol above it with only the dirty bird cut out.

  • Our vehicles were Vietnam bring backs. My track had .50 caliber machinegun holes through the side armor that had been patched. Three on the left and two on the right- indicating one did not pass through the vehicle leaving us to imagine what it would be like to be stuck in that can with a 1 ounce chunk of metal bouncing off everything...

  • We called them Battle Taxis or simply tracks. German soldiers call them "Scheinewurfel"- Pig cube.

  • I wonder if Mary's Cafe just off post is still in business? She loved US western movie culture and horses etc.- even country and western music. She freaked a little when she found out I was from Texas.

  • And simply did not believe me about same when she found out I in fact owned no horses and no, I was never fearful of gunfights in the street since as a rule they hadn't been happening for over 100 years.

  • The warrior who thinks he will be the one to die is rare- any army, any time period. You always think it will be the other guy. There was a story out of WWII where a commander tells the troops, "2 out of 3 of you may die."- of course every man looked to his left and right and thought, Gee, you guys sure are swell- I'm going to miss both of you!

  • Sometime they'll give a war and nobody will come. Carl Sandburg in 1936.

Friday's Dispatch

Is there anything bacon can't do?

  • Something I like that you would never believe if you knew just a little about me: Hollywood Undead- Can You Hear Me Now?

  • See, I'm something of a mystery, inside of an enigma, wrapped in a riddle...

  • Leave it to me to make Churchill roll over in his grave.

  • Someone just called and said they heard a new Most interesting man in the world commercial that said,"His wallet is made of chupacabra leather." and it reminded her of me.

  • There's a few children at Zachary's day care that come up and hug me when they see me arrive or as I leave. Is that normal? Are they reacting to seeing Zac and I interact? I don't remember that with my older children.

  • The best though is the kids that call out, "Zac!" when he gets there and come up and hug him and drag him off to play.

Thursday's Thoughts

  • Any doubt there will be an explodey head looking Bin Laden mask for Halloweeen.

  • It's pouring out and thundering.

  • A worn out cheap Roundtree And York cotton sweater and Tazmanian Devil sleeping pants.

  • What I'm wearing.

  • Coffee.

  • What I'm drinking.

  • Lunch? Baby carrots with avocado ranch dressing.

  • Rainy days with rolling thunder are still the only days when even though I won't admit I get lonely, it would be nice if I don't have to have someone to hang out with to have someone to hang out with.

  • Did that make sense?

  • Still can't get UB40's cover of Red Red Wine out of my mind and I'm about to go crazy- it's been days (again) now.

  • Help.

Real Friendship

is like peeing your pants- everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

Wednesday's Digressions

    The cover to Bigfoot's Obsession or Monster Love- the strangest romance novel ever.

  • Most ridiculous tattoo I've ever seen that I found oddly fascinating: A very detailed looking spine running the full length of the guys spine complete with discs in between the vertebra and spelled inside 6 of said vertebra were letters arranged vertically to spell VAGINA.

  • Front page news (for my browser anyway) has been multiple guys I have no idea- not even a guess who they are making speeches to supporters saying they would not continue to consider a bid for the Republican nominee for 2012.

  • A time of recent shocks: as I came around to the entrance to a store a guy in an Army uniform waved real big at me. At first I thought no big surprise- I spent a lot of time in the Texas Natl Guard- could be someone who recognises me that I really don't know. About the time I got into the store I realised it was one of the guys from my platoon during the war. Someone I've known for years acted interested in me. I was so shocked that had I been interested I'd have fumbled that ball. A person I consider to be one of my best friends divulged some shocking things to me- nothing illegal just very surprising things that I would not have guessed and I've known him for years.

  • When 2 blade razors came out there was an SNL sketch about 3 blade razors (or 3 to 4 or whatever). Yesterday I bought a pack of 6 bladed razors.

Tony's Baptism
Sunday was Tony's Baptism. It was a great day with the family. Tony is the best baby.Lori and Tony. All Tony needed through the ceremony to keep him happy was Mom's hand.

About Me

This blog is about my life and my new journey into motherhood. I am sure there will be many bumps along the way. WARNING!! Those of you who are freaks about grammar might get a headache.

Monday's Missives

  • By midnight last night I had been asleep for hours and felt great when I woke up.

  • My friend made me laugh so hard yesterday morning I literally had chest pain, but I can't remember now what she said for anything.

  • I finished Mark Twain's autobiography. Although I wouldn't have missed it for the world and will probably reread it, I can nearly call it a disappointment. It wasn't nearly the tell all I was expecting and my guess is that was part of the joke on his part when he demanded that it not be published until 100 years after his death. One thing that stood out? There is a pic in it of his wife dead in her bed- a not uncommon practice for the time.

  • Incubus Love Hurts.

  • You would be surprised at the amount of intractable back pain that is related to stress, chronic constipation and being out of shape- including simple postural issues. People won't change though and you can't tell them any different and lots of surgeries are performed when the patient finds a doc who will resort to it for relatively minor abnormalities on an X-ray or other images.

  • For the life of me I cannot understand what difference Scharzenegger's love child makes to his movie career.

  • Well, we're all still here- now what?

Saturday's Summary

An accident looking for a place to happen.

  • If I'm still here this afternoon I may go get some sun- that is if I'm not in Heaven or being chased by giant scorpions while swimming in a river of blood here in this world.

  • Today is supposed to be the end of the world- in case you missed it.

  • No surprise to me: the main guy pushing the end of times thing for today is the head of a 100 million dollar non profit organization.

  • Randy Macho Man Savage died in a car wreck yesterday. I don't care anything about wrestling, but that oddly saddened me.

  • I loved it when I was a kid though.

  • Wrasslin.

  • I have a sixth degree of separation from the Von Erichs. I competed in the discus against Mike and the two oldest boys coached me one day before a meet. What a sad mess that family was.

  • What do I remember about that day? Fritz's voice was unbelievably gravelly and the two oldest boys were unbelievably (for the time) muscled up. I was very intimidated, but they were nice.

Friday's Dispatch

    Evolution- click to slightly enlargenate.

  • During the recent Blogger outage multiple comments by people which were already up and readable disappeared. I didn't delete them so don't take offense.

  • All I've wanted to do the past few days is sleep.

  • And I could go for a good nap right about now.

  • The Gin Blossoms have put out a lot of good stuff- Found Out About You is one of my favorites. They got their name from a picture of WC Fields with the caption, WC Fields with gin blossoms. This was supposed to refer to his gin ravaged nose, but he had rosacea also.

  • Better than Ezra is also a favorite of mine with Good being my favorite song. They won't say how they got their name, but dj's long ago would say they had another working name in their early days and as they were going on stage after a band named Ezra they had themselves announced as Better Than Ezra...

  • LaBella, Rody and Redbeard. Dj's I remember from long ago. Didn't one of them die in a freak truck accident a few years ago?

  • My car is in the shop. I really need to get out and take care of some errands and told myself last night to walk- no surprise it's threatening to rain.

  • I've always kept a guitar around. It's mostly so my children are familiar with seeing one around and comfortable with handling it and banging on the strings. I cannot do anything with a guitar- nothing. It's funny though, when people say,"Oh play something on the guitar!" when they see it standing in the corner they don't believe I can't and think I'm being shy about my ability. The more I say I can't the more they push sometimes getting a little angry "Oh come- it's just me. You're probably great anyway!" they'll say.

  • Comfortable in that last sentence first came out comfartable.

  • Have a great weekend

Monday's Missives

Huh? Nothing wrong with this picture, but there's not even a chance I intentionally downloaded it to my my computer- something to think about (to me anyway) when someone is accused of having illegal pictures on their machine.

  • During The War I carried a loose 5.56 round in my my pocket as mostly a gesture, but ostensibly to blow my brains out with to prevent capture if it came down to it. By the time I came home it was polished- I mean shiny bright from riding in my cargo pocket.

  • I took a friend to Baker's Ribs in Weatherford last night and still feel woozy from protein, carbohydrate, fat, lemonade and awesomeness overload. Honestly- I did not even sleep well and had nightmares.

  • A recurring dream: A house near the Grasslands North of Decatur- I stop thinking it's a friends. Hubby comes home thinking I'm up to no good and starts loading a muzzle loader. I being the brave commando I am run for dear life. There's a fence I jump which leads to another and another all getting higher until I jump from one to another as they get higher and higher. His muzzleoader is actually some sort of Gatlin Gun and as he turns the crank I hear the rounds buzzing by my head. The summer air is so hot I can't breath and I get to my truck, (always a 1979 Ford- a different color every time) about the time I'm ready to give up and let him kill me. And then I wake up.

  • I've had that ridiculous dream every few years for as long as I can remember in my adult life.

  • Woke up this morning with Pearl Jams Breathe on mind.

  • Afghanistan was lost the minute we thought it winnable.

  • Zac is now demanding he be called Zachary. He's 3 and already redefining himself- I'm bracing for a difficult next 15 years.

  • His life count for fish count stands at 7 now.

Friday's Dispatch

    Aye carumba! I don't even know where to start.

  • A pretty song- Soul II Soul Back To Life. I had really forgotten how good a song it is.

  • Yesterday Zac watched a red eared slider turtle lay her eggs. It kind of messed with his mind a little. "Did she come out of that hole dug behind her? he asked. No baby, she dug the hole to put her eggs in- it's how she has babies. Where are her eggs then? he asked after looking around and not seeing any eggs. They're inside her body and she will push them out into the hole. You mean babies are going to come popping out- like poop? No, she'll push the eggs out and then like a chicken comes out of the egg, baby turtles will break out later. Chickens?!? No..."

  • I had two great posts written when Blogger crashed and lost them.

  • I always draw up a little when a male nurse has been specifically requested when I get a case offered. It could be as simple as an intake nurse asking if the patient or family has a preference or something deeper.

  • It's usually something deeper. It may be a bad area, a large patient, an imbalanced male who will attempt to manipulate a female nurse, a male patient with a crazy jealous wife or a possibly violent patient. Sometimes even my agency won't really know the reason.

  • Recently, a nurse who I did not know left a message wanting to talk about the patient I was assigned that night. OK, this could be as simple as he taking a special interest in the case and wanting to share information that will help in the patients care, requesting some TLC etc. or he may be wanting to give me some information that will keep my pretty face intact. I could tell the way he inhaled deeply when I called back it was the latter. "I wanted to let you know that the family called me yesterday and asked me to get there as soon as possible. I lost them on the phone so couldn't get details, but when I walked in he had an iron swinging it by the cord over his head trying to whack his wife, brother in law and a neighbor who came to help. He said they were devils who'd already robbed him and were trying to kill him" What could I say? "Sounds awesome!"

  • Have a great weekend.

Funny Foible

From a German newscast. They intended to put up a logo for SEAL Team 6, but found a fan made logo online from an episode of Deep Space Nine- note the phaser, Klingon swords and KLINGON skull! The news guy even commented to the effect,"They don't have a skull in their logo for nothing!" after talking about the mission that killed OBL.

Tuesday's Middle Of The Night Missives

Tacky, but funny- click to enlarge so you can read the text.

  • Normally I don't care about entertainers or politicians personal lives too much, but it kind of took me back when I read about Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver separating.

  • Chili's has for the price consistently good quality ribs. The big pickle place, the big pepper place and the big cherry place- what my 3 children each called Chili's when they would ask to go through the years.

  • I am awake at 2 AM because I made a piggy of myself there last night- I don't do that often anymore.

  • I am miserable.

  • Really- I mean I am in agony.

  • I don't touch wine with a 10 foot pole, but I love UB40's Red Red Wine and have had it stuck in my mind for hours.

  • It's catchy.

  • I bet you didn't know that Neil Diamond wrote and performed it originally though.

  • I've always liked UB40's cover of Can't Help Falling In Love as well.

  • Zac went swimming yesterday after we played Frisbee. 7 or 8 of the lovelies were already out working on their tans and if I'm lying I'm dying- Zac was hooking the Frisbee toward the fence so he could go over and talk to them.

  • I'm bad: yesterday morning my friend in the restaurant sat next to me and turned her back to me meaning she wanted her back scratched and rubbed. How's that? I asked after a few minutes. It's good and you know it- don't stop. she said as she leaned her head forward for me to work on her neck. Oh man, you are something else she said. After a few more minutes she said,OK, I'm ready to work. What can I get you started with? As she asked I was sticking my tongue into the whipped cream on top of my coffee. That doesn't look like a starter- it looks like a happy ending! she said. Well, OK if that's where we're going with this- to get things started we'll put a spoonful of this in your belly button and go from there I said. We both busted up laughing. Then she said, I'm getting away from you, before I get in trouble!

  • It was then I looked down and happened to notice the line was still open on my phone from speaking to my former spouse earlier.

  • Good night world.

Monday's Missives

  • I think to find Bill Hicks funny you'd have to think of him as a sort of motivational speaker first who uses humor to get his message across. Also, if you are a pretty self aware person without an axe to grind, who thinks for themselves (which he for lack of a better term preaches) watching his act can actually be tiresome.

  • An odd, unconnected thought just crossed my mind. I'd really like to go back to Germany. Although plenty of people speak English and you could get by just fine without speaking German I would have to get my head wrapped around it and learn enough to get around again and that gives me a headache thinking about it- although it's an easy langauage for an English speaker to learn.

  • Do we program little kids to like dinosaurs? We must, otherwise it's inborn- their love for those big scaly creatures is too pervasive.

  • I watched my first son be born by c section.

  • A funny, gross, profane movie: Shakes The Clown.

  • Last year I've heard my apartment closed the pool way early- like July 5 or something ridiculous. There was such an uproar they kept it open all year this year.

Good Night World

Zac and I just watched Dread Zeppelin doing Immigrant Song while singing along. We are going to watch an episode of I Dream Of Jeannie and crash. I don't think life could get any better unless we were doing it on a big boat somewhere.
Good night world- you big scary crazy place.

Bin Laden Still Continues To Sleep With Teh Fishes And I'm About To Soak My Aching Back In A Nice Warm Tub- The Saturday Edition

Part of this thing is not like the others...

There were nearly 100 operators involved in the assault phase of the mission.

It is absolutely impossible that parts of the Pak intelligence services did not know OBL was in their country- impossible.

It seems from a terrorist to a religious nut if the US Government is intent on killing you, your home will be called a compound and/or a lair.

  • Dogs in our military have always received lots of attention: I present to you Cats Of War.

  • A close call for American born terrorist Awlaki in Yemen.

  • The information that led to OBL's death came from waterboarding KSM- during one of 183 sessions.

  • A Biography biography of OBL.

  • OBL's last will and testament.

  • The search for him may have cost us 3 trillion dollars.

  • Hit Team, an appellation some writers are using for the operators on SEAL Team Six is one I can assure you those guys dearly love. One they would hate- assassination squad.

  • One more reason to know Michael Moore is not only mentally retarded, but mentally ill.

  • Some myths surrounding OBL.

  • Aftermath of raid in pictures.

  • Anybody could have guessed stealth tech would have trickled down to operational helicopters, but you simply had to know there were some stealth enabled birds around after Comanche was cancelled. The Comanche program was cancelled in 2004, but not without having some prototypes up and the tech proven.

  • I hope our government was prepared for every fool in association with OBL to alter their movements after the raid in ways that would ID them and make them accessible to air strikes, Hellfires and/or raids wherever they were in the world. Not only would this be practical- any misses or collateral damage would be minimised by the coverage of OBL's death.

  • A good demonstration of how people in the west process information differently from people other regions can be shown by looking at the governments announcements- from the first to most recent regarding that mission. A Westerner looks at the information as a flow that would naturally evolve as more in formation comes to light. We would say,"Naturally, the information is going to change- it was dark, there were nearly a hundred people involved, there was gunfire. It's war. A person from the Middle East would see any deviation from the first published reports or reports that differ from most trusted sources and even sources that differ from their world view as evidence of conspiracy.

  • I wonder what they weighted the shroud and body bag covering Osama's corpse down with?

  • Also, I wonder what was the last thing that went through his mind before he died?

  • I mean- besides 77 grains of copper jacketed lead.

  • My guess is, What is this?! I need a SEAL Team in my bedroom like I need a hole in the head! Borrowed from Dave Letterman's Top Ten List.

Gruesomely Gratuitous Head Shot Corpus Or Pretty Decent Photoshop Work- You Decide I'm Going To Sleep While Osama Burns

Wednesday's Digressions The Special Bin Laden Continues To Sleep With Teh Fishes Edition

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." George Orwell

  • Nightline has a pretty good preliminary report on OBL's death titled How They Got Him.

  • I look forward to the inevitable Frontline documentary on the subject. It will be titled Killing Osama How The US Took Down A Terror Mastermind.

  • I made the title up, but I bet they work parts of that in there somehow.

  • People who doubt he is dead will not be convinced with a picture, a copy of the DNA report, a video or being allowed to see the corpse.

  • I would dearly love to see helmet cam footage from the operation.

  • Some sources are now saying it was a CIA operator who shot him.

  • President Obama called Bush and Clinton personally to let them know about the raid.

  • Report are now a photo will be released of OBL's body with the gruesome aspects toned down by Photoshopping- bad, bad mistake.

  • "Great, does this mean we get to go home?" rhetorical question from a US service member at Kandahar Air Base.

  • No, Timmy- we can't go home until all the bad men are gone.

Tuesday's Missives The Special Bin Laden Sleeps With The Fishes Edition

  • I haven't read or heard anything on Al Qeada's spin on OBL's death. He wasn't really a factor any longer in the organization other than a figurehead, but I'm surprised they didn't have anything ready to go. My guess is the death caught them off guard.

  • Wonder if there will ever be a book(s) about that mission?

  • I would love to see helmet cam footage and read a good tell-all of the operation.

  • I don't think the government should release pictures of his corpse. I don't have a well formulated reason for feeling this way other than we don't have to do it- so why take a chance on it backfiring? Regardless, people will believe what they want to believe especially any segment of the world population the US government might believe needs convincing by publishing salacious pictures of a headshot corpse.

  • The mission, four years in the making came as the result of a tip from a Guantanamo inmate.

  • "I am sorry, but if you believe the newest death of OBL, you're stupid. Just think to yourself--they paraded Saddam's dead sons around to prove they were dead--why do you suppose they hastily buried this version of OBL at sea? This lying, murderous Empire can only exist with your brainwashed consent--just put your flags away and THINK!"- Cindy Sheehan. That poor lady is mentally ill. I feel sorry for her- I really do.

  • OBL Is Dead Al Queada Isn't. The title of a Foreign Policy article and something we should probably remind ourselves often. However, we won't hear that a lot from official sources since they don't want to be a wet blanket and kill the political goodwill OBL's death has bought.

  • How did the choppers get in without Pakistani radar picking them up? Running North and South from Pak down into Afghanistan are valleys the helicopters would have flown in diminishing the effectiveness of radar. Special Ops rated pilots are unbelievably good- really there aren't enough adjectives to describe how scary good they are at all hours, low level, high speed flight. Also, there is no telling what kind of exotic jamming equipment and/or transponders to send fake signals they carried. The bulk of Pak radar assets would also be oriented toward India- where they would most likely face a real threat from the air to places and people they would actually want to protect.

  • A newscaster reported the mission as a "strategic operation" that is technically incorrect- it may have strategic implications, but it was a tactical operation.

  • I have talked to different guys who did ops with SEALs in Iraq, they said things like,"We hated working with those guys. We'd get in a firefight and they'd kill everybody around. It didn't matter who they were. We were like, Hey dude, cool it- you can't kill everybody. We've got to work in this neighborhood long after you guys are gone..."

  • I like the little GIF where President Obama says,"He's dead." then stomps off the stage and kicks a door open to leave.

  • In a perfect world that's exactly what he would have done.

OBL Death Footage From My Sources Deep Inside SOCOM

Bullet Points On OBL's Death (get it? bullet points. Ha, I slay myself sometimes.)

  • The death of Bin Laden won't mean what I'm afraid too many Americans think it will: the end of Al Queada. He had nothing to do with the day to day decision making process of that organization for years and had just been trying to keep himself exchanging gases and burning calories for the same length of time.

  • It does show the bad guys that if the US wants you dead- you will die. This will be the best lesson to take away and one the bad guys are likely to get before they dissolve in despair over OBL's death and get real jobs.

  • People are overjoyed at the news of his death and if the news of his death is good enough for them, then great, but that's all it's really going to mean- is he is dead.

  • Another killjoy thought: his death may reinvigorate the very outdated and short sighted notion that killing bad guys will always solve our problems.

  • Will his death have any impact on President Obama's chance of re-election in 2012? I really hate the inherent cynicsm in that question, but to answer the question- I doubt it especially as people learn how little the death will mean materially.

  • I think it interesting that such a high value target wasn't vaporised in an airstrike or dismembered by a Hellfire, but had his brains blown out by a 5.56 round fired by an operator from relatively close range.

  • Providential.

  • President Obama's announcement of the operation was very good- very Presidential. I would be curious to know if he wrote it himself.

  • The body was identified through DNA recovered from a sister who died in a US hospital.

  • People are surprised the body was buried at sea. I would have been shocked if anything different was done. Regardless, it simply was not going to be turned over to next of kin.

  • The first pic I saw of the body, a screen grab from Pak television was obviously fake.

  • Somewhere a Navy SEAL operator knows he was the one to send OBL to Hell and his buddies know it also.

  • His name is Legend.

Monday's Missives

  • A nurse from another agency is acting interested in me- other nurses have even commented on it. I'm sorry though, she's plain. For me to be interested in someone they wouldn't have to necessarily be considered hot (though it would be unlikely people would call them ugly) but no- not plain.

  • The ghost shrimps did not finish eating the deceased x-ray tetra and I had to scoop it out with a plastic spoon this morning after it got bloaty and started floating.

  • I did not know Ken Jeong is a physician until coming across his Wikipedia entry this morning.

  • More proof of how flawed that site is: Zsa Zsa Gabor's page says she bought a home from Elvis Presley's estate- 3 years before he died.

  • How to fish for carp. That is the most embarrassing thing I remember typing for an Internet search.

  • If I was fabulously wealthy I'd probably spend a fortune on...

  • pinball machines.
