      Sargesbrat It appears a Democrat hasn't shot anybody in the past two years. Have they changed their ways or just run out of ammunition?

      Sargesbrat Sent your blog to some Democrats I know. They asked if an Republicans shot any Democrat presidents. Told them Kennedy was shot by a communist. Communists are European Democrats.

      Roberta I received a letter from my water company. So since June 1st the base rate was increased by 50%, tier 1 increase is 100%, and if you use anything in tier 2 a stiff fine. Plus supposed to save 36% over what you used in the same month the year before these ...  more

    retcolusa JuJu and I may be a tad late for the chat tonight.  We are meeting (for the first time) Brat Janet and her husband for supper tonight.  They are here for a 1st Cavalry reunion at Fort Hood.  We are so looking forward to meeting our first MBO member in person.

      duncsbrat the rule in the medical field (I know this isn't the medical field) is that if you didn't write it down, it didn't happen.....so John, if you didn't check in, you weren't there!!

      retcolusa You have discovered the secret and didn't know it, John. The government never put any of this in writing, it was always advertising hype and "promises" by military recruiters - never a legal contract. There have been numerous law suits, all of which have failed.

      Sargesbrat Oh, military service is like buying a used car, then. Hmmm, my life for something that is guaranteed to fall apart. Wonder if they will throw in a set of white walls?

      Sargesbrat Never trusted those Texas insurance companies. Anyone there with a ten gallon hat and a Cadillac can start one. Texas policies are good except in the event of a claim.

      JLail Yea, you've got me by a few years Sarge. We were at Bentwaters by 79, and getting ready to move back to the states to Nellis.
      And wow, your dad did it all eh? I think mine finished as a line chief as well.

      JLail I honestly don't remember the pre F-16 Thunderbirds, just pictures of them in dad's office at Nellis. He was an FTD instructor for the F-16 there.
