Vacation Update!

August 27, 2007

I’m in San Diego right now and this Global Warming is kicking my butt! I’ve got lots of pics on my website, so if you know where to look then knock yourself out. The directory to look under is Hawaii. (duh!) Those bunks they have for you to sleep in are small! I feel like a friggin slice of bread put into a toaster! They had white curtains in the showers so you could have some privacy… but they changed them to nice, new clear ones after a couple of days. Great. So far nobody’s screamed at my naked butt so it can’t be that bad. 😛

Space is very limited and walking down the corridors dodging everyone is a real pain, especially when you’re carrying your food tray or something. They have more females on the ship than I expected. Ahh, the stories I could tell you! It’s been real fun, I’ll try to get the good vids up on YouTube or something. I didn’t bring a real video camera so I just used the ‘movie’ mode on my digital camera.

I don’t have much time here and the taxi drivers are suicidal so I won’t be doing too much running around here. Ya’ll take care and I’ll be back ‘soon’.

Missing ya’ll,


I’m going on vacation!

August 16, 2007

That’s right! The first one I’ve really had since I’ve been out of the Air Force!!! I’ll be back on the 4th, right after Labor Day.

So, happy blogging and don’t forget:

How great is it?

Well, since Mark isn’t blogging anymore then it looks like I’ve got to pick up the slack.

Cake Anyone?

August 11, 2007

My wonderful wife loves to bake cakes. And I have a warped sense of humor. Put those together and what do you get?


A co-worker had a motorcycle accident and was out for a week. Touching, isn’t it!

What? No comment about the F-22?

Guess I hit the nail on the head for once!

Black Bear

This pic is from the Daily News. I got to watch him for a bit throughout the day. He kept going from tree to tree. He was soooo cute!

What the Hell does it take to make you idiots happy?

Remember way back in 2004 when someone asked Rumsfeld about the lack of armor and he said:  “As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. They’re not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time.”

Well, do ya?

So, the theory is that you get the equipment BEFORE you need it and not after? Are you sure? Positive??? You mean we don’t get involved in a war THEN start getting what we need? Are you sure about this?

Ok, now explain this one to me.

Next week Elmendorf AFB will be getting the new F-22 Raptor’s.

F-22 Raptor

Awesome plane!!! Now we have a plane that will beat anything out there. If we do go to war with a country that has advanced aircraft, then we’ll be able to stomp them into the ground! Yes! Now we have a new aircraft that you would want to go to war with and not wait until after we start fighting to get!!!

What’s the problem then? These fuckwits that complain that it is “an overpriced luxury”, “The real issue is, who are we going to fly the F-22 against?”, and “I don’t think al-Qaida is going to shrink back into their caves because there are F-22s flying overhead rather than F-16s.”

Again, now we’re back to the Wait-until-we-need-it-before-we-get-it mode? WTF!!! Will you friggin morons please make up your mind already?

“We cannot afford to lose sight of the fact that we may be called upon to battle an enemy whose technology and skills more closely mirror our own … and we may have to counter both types of threats simultaneously,” says the statement by Lt. Gen. Doug Fraser and Col. Thomas Tinsley.

“When planning for the Raptor first began, it was intended to combat aerial Soviet Union threats. It has since evolved into a versatile fighter capable of striking ground targets and conducting information warfare as well.”EXACTLY! The F-22 was NOT designed to fight terrorists!

This disabled-vet has a message for those morons that just can’t make up their minds on what they want:


If you don’t get it, read it aloud until someone smacks you.  You certainly deserve it!
