Yes they know how to tease alright…
They posted this on Facebook and tagged me. Every Christmas I always say I wish for Santa to bring me a Harley… and every year the kids tease me about it with some of the presents they give me… Harley mousepad, bandana, small model replica bike, etc.. This … Continue Reading “Such teases, those two girls”
Our annual family Christmas party… it was fairly large with, according to Darryl/Bryant, quite a few new faces this year. Some of the new faces were Lou’s niece on the Mariano side (Nate’s mother’s sister) Kevin and Norma Mariano Rios and family. Lina’s best friends, the … Continue Reading “Annual Christmas party, 2013”

I don’t keep up with Hawaii music releases by any stretch. I liked the now old stuff like C&K, Kalapana, Braddah Iz, Olomana, brothers Caz, etc.. The newer reggae and hip stuff the family likes and I listen to passively but don’t pay much attention to who the artists are, what latest releases… Continue Reading “Hawaii mp3’s”
I was talking to Mom a few weeks ago after I had burned a couple of CDs for her of her favorite music. We began talking about music from her heyday, etc.. I recalled music she used to have when we (we kids) were very young… some stuff she and Dad had on reel to reel tape. Then I left her house thinking about a lot … Continue Reading “Of earliest childhood memories”
I was on FB reading recent posts in some of the military groups I’m in. Someone asked about Army MOS merges. So I went off googling circa 1989 MOS merges looking for my own 32D MOS at the time. One link led to another, Vietnam era MOSs, and after about 5 minutes of looking around different links, I came across… Continue Reading “Vietnam Heroes Remembered”
Someone posted this video on Facebook and I thought it was a fine example of citizens owning firearms to protect themselves from illegal firearms in the hands of thugs.
I’m not necessarily a supporter… Continue Reading “Armed citizen shoots back”
Furloughs… hmmm, joke’s on me. I was supposed to be excepted and continue working, but this morning the headsheds changed the approved excepted employee list and I was dropped off. Oh well. Now it’s going to be a challenge without pay.
I guess I and 799,000 other federal employees will have… Continue Reading “Caught in the furlough”
I call it white noise because to me it is… that background hiss and crackle that is always there, not so loud that we cannot talk and carry on with the day’s agenda, but ever so present enough in volume that when you stop talking, you hear it like low volume elevator music. People keep talking and talking… Continue Reading “This gun ban/second amendment white noise”
We had a gathering of the old DISA-PAC DSN DRSN General Dynamics GDIT GDNS GD-WTS DNMSS-G work gang again from the NOC days at Ige’s last night. Seems we’ve been averaging once a year in doing this, for one reason or another, since the team broke up some 4 years ago! It was originally our bowling team’s… Continue Reading “DSN Gang Get together 2013”
