Welcome Home!

I love coming home to my family!  It never gets old.  Whether gone for a few hours, days or weeks ... pulling up to the curb, looking the house over, cutting across the front yard, and opening the front door ... to the cheers, applause, accolades, hugs and kisses of my adoring Wife and two girls. Ok, so maybe every time I walk in the front door it isn't as magical a moment as said.  But more often than not, even if there is crying or fighting going on somewhere in the house when I walk Read more [...]

Diaper Allergies

  Despite my best attempts ... I am yet to convince Wife that I have an allergy to diapers.

Before ever joining the Navy, Wife (then Girlfriend) agreed to start cutting my hair.  Seemed like a good plan to me.  I didn't really care how it turned out, and the price was Read more [...]

Alan Shepard: My first look-a-like in space

Just received a letter (yes a real letter) in the mail that had a paragraph that read as follows: I was looking at my Alan Sheppard stamps and realized there is an incredible resemblance there to you. No... I thought.  My correspondance and I have not exactly spent a lot of time in each other's company, so he must be mistaken.   Bam!  There it was... sure enough. I gave it to Wife to check out and without hesitation... "Is that you?" Upon MUCH further observation I think Read more [...]
