Southbound and Down

Just a brief post before we go SOUTHBOUND to Fayville. HOOOAH. The boss has a four day weekend and Jacob has a four day pass. Can't leave this chance go by. Retirement has it's advantages.

On the military side of it. I got a text message sent yesterday morning saying "look for me at noon, I'll be knees in the breeze". So like all good parents I went out on the porch, looked south at noon, and waved. I don't know if he saw me or not. Next text message I got simply stated and I quote, "I'm still alive" Nice news to get from your kid. He called his mom shortly afterward and said he had a nice soft landing which is always good! I don't know if he got to use the new chutes they are getting but will ask when I get there.

Hopefully, next post will be from Fayville, and who knows, maybe I can get him to hold still and smile for a good picture.

That's all folks,

God Bless America! It's the best damn place in the world to live, bar none!!!

Have fun in Fayetteville. Mark has been tromping around Bragg today finding Civil War and Rev. War sites. Who knew Bragg could be so interesting.
