I'm still alive.:)

Hello everyone, I'm still alive here in Kansas. I have just been too busy to post to my blog lately. My kids Cindy and John are doing good. Cindy is currently on leave in San Diego, Ca and will fly to Everett Washington Wednesday to report to her new naval base and then somehow get to her Ship the USS Abraham Lincoln.

John is still out at sea on his ship the USS Doyle. We have heard from John a few times and he was doing good but tired. He was working some 18-19 hour days. Someone stole his cell phone charger from his rack on the ship so he needs a new one. It looks like anything left out gets taken. He had his shoes stolen another time and other things in the past. I asked him if he was on a pirate ship. :) The lesson here is lock everything up when it is out of your eyesight. Sad but true.... That's about all for now. Hope everyone has a great day.

When I was in the Navy, anything left out was called "Gear Adrift" and was fair game. Usually one of your superiors took it, and after you went to him with your hat in your hand, you got it back, BUT you also got extra duty....

It's still sad. One time his lock was cut on his rack and things were taken. No excuse for that kind of crap. People need to grow up. Maybe if they ( the senior enlisted ) treated them like adults then they would act like adults.
