Sorry, for my absence....I have been on an enlightened path of self love....I feel wonderful!!
Isn't that so fortunate??
I have an affinity for the USNavy.
It's out there for the world to see.
It's a big deal in our home. I'm married to an ex-Marine! He HATES those NavalBoys!!
He has always considered them a Department of the Marines Corps.
A tool to get the REAL MEN to the fight!
They stay on the ships while the Marines hit the beach!
It has a lot to do with the fact that he had such a hard time in BootCamp and the Swabbies were on the other side of the fence laughin' at the Marines drillin'.
That......and my affinity for them.....ticks him off.....well okay my affinity is deeper than just the USNavy....it's men in uniforms.....yeah, sure....it's just men!
But who doesn't want LtMayo to swept them off their feet?
Who hasn't wanted to go to the Danger Zone with Maverick??
Who hasn't wanted to lick IceMan's jaw line?
Okay maybe only me.....but Dammmmmn!!
As I took a solemn vow to love and cherish Roy forever, it is also my duty as his wife, to Keep Shit Stirred!!
A few years back, I heard that there is a program where you can invite Seamen and Soldiers into your home for the Holidays. They are stationed so far from home and need a good home cooked meal.
"Honey, I would like to do my part. Let's do that!"
He rolled his eyes. "They are not puppies in a store and you don't get to pick them out!"
When I was planning my vacation with my Aunt....the Trip from Hell ... I looked into upcomin' events to the San Diego area. I noticed that FleetWeek was on the schedule!!! It wasn't gonna happen while we were there but it was something to rile up Roy!
"Honey!! It's gonna be FleetWeek!! I think that Violet Jean and I will do our patriotic duty and "support" those boys the best way I know how."
He didn't even look up from his gun magazine!! He just said, "Have fun. Use Protection."
I'm not sure if I was more upset that he gave me permission....or that he didn't stir for a debate??
And most recently, there was a young woman that had to be airlifted off a cruise ship for an emergency appendectomy.
Wellllll now......since that has been my biggest fear since I was 5,.....now.... I'm now hopin' it will happen!!!
The minute we heard that, Roy giggled......He saw this one coming!
"Oh Honey!!! What ailment can I have to be airlifted onto an aircraft carrier???"
"Babe, I don't think Nymphomania will do it."
Oh Roy....Dear Sweet Man......I beg to differ!
