Monday BPU OT (6/17/2019)

Monday BPU OT (6/17/2019)Good Monday morning my fellow lovers of the finely ground caffeinated coffee bean. Once again, my feet are planted firmly on the green side of the grass this fine day. The sun is still trying to find its way from behind the clouds but hey, I can handle a gray day as long as it isn’t raining, “again”!

Had no nurse scheduled to care for my Son again last night as the Sunday 11pm to 7am time slot seems difficult to fill. I can’t say I blame the nurses as working the night shift can be pretty tough. Those days are far behind me when I was but a young Airman. Even though I did get a little sleep last night I still resemble an extra in the cast of, ‘The Walking Dead’ this morning. Nothing a few cups of high octane jet fuel can’t fix, “Cheers”!

I hope all my fellow Dad’s (A very special acknowledgement to all the Moms who had to step up) had a wonderful Father’s Day. We took it pretty easy here at the BPU Compound as I knew I was going to be nurse less overnight. That and I drank enough Saturday night to hold me over.

Grilled eight good sized and well rubbed (Fellow Grill Masters know what I mean) Pork Chops for Father’s Day dinner while enjoying the day long ‘Make My Father’s Day’ Dirty Harry marathon on the Sundance channel.Go Ahead, Make My Day

“Since when the hell did watching TV become a day long advertisement marathon at volumes twice the decibel level of that the snippets of programming used to break up the continuous run of commercials?”

Time to go make my day, Punks!

Good Monday All and have yourselves a great week!

Yeah Right! Surrreeee

Linda Ronstadt ~ The Waiting

Linda Ronstadt returned to the country-accented folk and rock sound with her 1995 album release, “Feels Like Home”.

The biggest surprise of the record is a mandolin/bluegrassy treatment of Tom Petty’s The Waiting. Sung full-tilt, as opposed to Petty’s more subtle reading of the lyrics, the song seems less a quiet declaration of joy and release than a shout-it-to-the-world exaltation.

“Cheers”

Military Humor ~ What Time Is It?

Military Humor

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle.
One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, “What time is it?”
The tower responded, “Who is calling?”
The aircraft replied, “What difference does it make?”
The tower replied, “It makes a lot of difference.
If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o’clock.
If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.
If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.
If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it’s Thursday afternoon.”

Monday Morning Coffee

As a youngster I use to laugh at my Grandparents whenever they associated their aches and pains with the weather.

“I can tell by my aching knees we must have some rain moving in?”

This morning at five O’clock I rolled over and the first area of my body to check in was my back. Having gone through numerous back surgeries including spinal fusions I am use to a constant level of hopefully manageable pain but this morning I knew it was going to be a rough one getting myself in the full and upright position.

After taking care of my morning bathroom business while gingerly making my way to the coffee pot my first thought was, “Here We F**king Go Again!”

And, did I mention, “It’ Raining!”
