Belated - Happy Hogmanay!

I've really been looking forward to 2010...now I can say "I get to go home this year", which sounds a lot better then going home next year.

To bring everyone up to date, my shop had a small gathering for Christmas and and even smaller gathering for Hogmanay (New Years Eve)...FYI, non-alcoholic beer, tastes like cr@p, even after 6 months without the real stuff.

Yes, I am only one in the correct Aloha casual attire. The Army and Air Force just don't know how to dress appropriately for a party.

I've gone "outside the wire" on a couple of missions that I won't talk about due to OPSEC. I promoted my Sergeant First Class to Master Sergeant and I was able to recommend and an "On-the-Spot" award (Joint Achievement Medal) to a very talented and hard working Petty Officer. Bravo Zulu (That's Navy for Good job) to MSG and PS1!

Last week, I talked politics with one of the few Republicans I like.

(I still like the 2000 McCain, better than the 2008 McCain).

Here I am asking the Senator what he was thinking when he asked Palin to be his running mate... Actually, we were talking about when he spoke to my Junior Year History Class at Peoria High over 25 years ago. Boy, is he getting old. :)

The question about Palin would have been inappropriate...I do have some manners after all.
