Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet

Virginia State Constitution: Article 1; Section 13

Warning: Crappy cell phone video.

Little fucker called on Sunday, and he's out hunting again!

(Yeah...that's A1C B practicing his bow shooting in the house. Chip off the old block, that kid.)

A Professor was giving a lecture on "Involuntary Muscular Contractions" to his first year medical students.

Realizing that this was not the most riveting subject, the Professor decided to lighten the mood slightly.
He pointed to a young woman in the front row and said,

"Do you know what your ass hole is doing while you're having an orgasm???"

She replied, "Probably deer hunting with his buddies."

Sending some linky love out to Leigh Van Etten. She doesn't blog just because she's an attention-whore like me. She is a veteran herself. I worked with her and her husband Wayne on the flightline many, many....many years ago in Okinawa.
Her blog, A Misfit's Mother's Journey, is where she talks about dealing with the terrible injuries her Marine son received from an IED in Afghanistan.
Please drop by and offer her some support.
I don't tell many people this, but A1C B signed up for the Marine Corps first, during is senior year in high school.
While he was on DEP, he went out playing scrub football with his buddies and blew out his knee. Badly
The Corps dropped him like a bad habit.
A couple years later (after repairs and PT) he signed up for the Air Force.
I read Leigh's blog and imagine if things had gone differently for my family. Would that be my son in that chair?

Done, and quite the read...

You don’t have to have a child in the military to have thoughts and fears for your child like she is going through. My daughter and her first year of driving…now my grandson is in his first year. And that blown knee was probably the best thing to happen to A1C B.

Lol, I loved the joke too.

It's hard to be a parent. It's hard to encourage them to be brave and selfless when we know the price. it takes a special parent to support that sacrifice. It is mighty hard to watch them hurting. Prayers for all of them and much, much gratitude.

Coffey - My daughter is 20 and drives like she's immortal.

Andy - Thanks. Sorry I had to cancel last night. Things ended up going a lot later than I expected.

A Girl - Thanks.
