Good morning everyone. It's been a quiet week here in South East Kansas. Nothing is really going on. Yesterday we had a warm up in the weather with temps in the 60s but that is gone now. When I woke up this morning it was 19 degrees outside and they are predicting highs in the 30s today. My wife Vicki has a birthday Sunday and it looks like she is going to get Snow. We are really anxious for Spring...
My daughter Cindy called yesterday from her CIWS C-School at San Diego Naval Base and told me that in class yesterday the instructor told them to go to www.google.com and type in "French Military Victories" and then click the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button. The results are hilarious. Give it a try and have some fun. Cindy just told me "Today I have duty. Tomorrow I am going to the rec center until my buddy Zac gets off. He is going to take me out to his sail boat and teach me how to sail and kayak. Its going to be fun. I have a 3 day weekend. I don't go back to class until Tuesday after I get off today. I don't have watch so I am going to pretty much play games online."
My son John called from Naval Station Mayport Florida. John was doing well. He had a good week so far. They celebrated Black History Month with films and food on his Ship. John said that the speeches were interesting and the food was great. This weekend he is going to Daytona with one of his friends to see the Daytona 300 on Saturday and tonight he is going to see a concert. My parents live a few miles from the Daytona Speedway so John just might be able to see them when he is in town.
My Mom sent me an e-mail with some pictures yesterday. The e-mail says "We had the WGA Cupid Scramble today and it was in the thirties when we started out. I froze. I could not swing with my jacket on and it was so cold with it off. We did not win but Kathleen and Alden did. We were three under and they were five under. We needed one and a half more points to be in the money. We had 100 people playing and had lunch afterwards. My feet are still cold."
Kathleen and Alden are my Aunt and Uncle that also live in the same neighborhood as my parents along with my Aunt Jane and Uncle John.
