Good Morning Leathernecks! God loves you, and longs to have you serve Him and His. . . .
Coffee is on, bacon frying up in the skillet, and stirring up a batch of buttermilk waffles this morning. While the wife has been away, I ran to the store and bought some blueberries, so if you've a mind, I can toss a few in your waffles.
Achped: Heck yes people still do that, and they're great.
You men and women in theatre's of war, prayers outbound for your safety, and safe return to your families, and a grateful nation.
I hope your day is filled with great love, and all that you could desire. Oh, and don't wait one day too long. . . . Think about it.

Rule of thumb: Them places are not for eating food. Liquid refreshments only, I don't care how good the menu looks.
Semper Fidelis Marines!
Here's the first Marine joke I heard while at Parris Island...an oldie but a goodie.
A Navy Seaman is out walking one day and comes across a young boy playing with a pile of dog crappola. He says sternly: "What ARE you doing?!!"
The boy hesitates then says "I'm makin' a Marine."
This makes the Seaman laugh and he sees his Navy buddy across the street and calls him over. The second Seaman also asks the little boy, "WHAT are you doing??" to which the boy gives the same answer "I'm makin' a Marine."
Both Seamen, slightly appalled, get a good laugh between them anyhow.
At that moment, a sharp dressed Marine Sergeant wearing his Blues comes walking down the sidewalk and they decide this is too good an opportunity to pass upon, so they wave the Marine over and tell him..."See this? Just ask him what he's doing??" (snickers)
The Sergeant say "LITTLE BOY, what are you doing, playing with this pile of crappola?" The little boys stands up straight and replies, "I'm makin' a Marine!"
"WHAT!!!??? What do you mean you're making a Marine??" he growls.
The little boy states:" We'll I didn't have enough crappola to make a Sailor!"

Good Morning Marines! God is good, and He bids us to come serve Him, and our fellow man.
Coffee is on, sausage (Jimmy Dean's Hot), hashbrowns, eggs, and toast are on the menu this a.m.
Starting off to be a sticky one in the Bluegrass State. . . . Yes, my grass is blue. Think I'll find a cool corner or a shady spot and stay out of life's way for the day.
To our men and women serving our country, I lift you up today, asking for your safety, and speedy return to your loving families, and grateful nation.
Oh, and don't wait one day too long. . . . Hope your day is filled with all you love, and more than you could desire.

Coffee. Must have coffee! I got two hours sleep working on a project deadline. Of course yesterday my hard drive decides to crap out. I wrestled with it for 6 hours to get it to behave right. On top of that I had to lend a hand on prepping my bro's big Birthday BBQ for later this afternoon.
When I have days like these I think of our Bro's overseas in those harsh environments facing daily dangers. Then my day doesn't seem so stressful.
And my reward this afternoon will be enjoying a BBQ where there will be a two to one female to male ratio, since I was the one in charge of inviting eveyone!

Good morning Marines!!
Hazy hot and humid today and tomorrow here in Albany. We haven't had rain in almost 4 days....since we've been living in tropical conditions most of the summer, with rain nearly everyday since mid June, the change is welcome!
yellowwing, the BBQ sounds great, and I like the methodology you put into your invitations. Don't tell FIST...he'll surely go out of his way for those kind of odds.
Today at Parris Island another class of Marines are on the Parade Deck for the final time, no longer to be called recruits. They are boots one and all, and will make all of the same mistakes that we all did at their age. In 10 days, after leave, they will report to SOI or MCT and continue to become the world's finest fighting force and carry on the legacy. All of them will sacrifice something of themselves in their tours and careers to ensure that the Marine Corps and the United States live on. Each generation is different than the last and they will be better skilled Marines thanks to the efforts of previous generations. I say to them all, Welcome Aboard!
Have a great day Teufel Hunden
The Battle of Belleau Wood was fought in France in the summer of 1918, in the midst of a heat wave. At some point during the battle, the Marines were ordered to take a hill occupied by German forces. As the Marines prepared to charge the hill, word came down from command that the Germans were preparing to use mustard gas to repel the attack. As a precaution, the Marines were ordered to put on theirgas masks and take the hill. As the Marines fought their way up the hill, the heat caused them to sweat profusely, foam at the mouth and turned their eyes bloodshot. Additionally, at some points the hill was very steep, which caused the Marines to have to scramble on all fours to make their way up. Consequently, from the Germans' vantage point, they witnessed a pack of tenacious, growling figures whose lower faces were obscured by gas masks (which at the time had a prolonged shape that somewhat resembled a snout ) but left open their bloodshot eyes and mouth foam seeping from the sides, advancing up the hill, sometimes on all fours, and killing everything in their way. As the legend goes, the German soldiers, upon seeing this spectacle, began to yell that they were being attacked by "dogs from hell."
