Air Show 2007

16 April 2007

SIT and I went to the air show this past weekend and had a decent time, but that is not what this is about.  This is about the GREEDY SOBs that decided that is was appropriate to charge $3.00 for a COKE, can you believe that?  $3.00 for a coke!  Give me a break.  The installation and the organizers of this event should be ashamed of themselves for that.  I realize that is costs money to put on these shows, but $3.00 for a COKE!  Needless to say, SIT and I didn’t have any coke at the event.  Oh, and in case you were wondering, to get a burger with fries was $7.00.  For SIT and I to have gotten a burger, fries and a coke, $20.00!  Come on.  So SIT and I waited and grabbed a bite to eat on the way home and spent $12.00 for a sandwich, fries and coke each.  That is $12.00 TOTAL.

I’ll leave the traffic rant for another day.

$3.00 for a COKE!

Check out the strip that Mr. Christian posted at the Skipper’s place.  No need to say anymore.

Hey Algore, explain this one to me.  If glow bull warming is such a big deal, why are baseball games getting SNOWED out?

An Anniversary (x2)

3 April 2007

Wow, has it been that long already?  Sunday was the 2 year anniversary (yeah, I know) of my telling Uncle Sam I was done.  I found it quite ironic that while I was on AD for 20 years and 2 days, I left for Basic and Retired exactly 20 years apart.  Wouldn’t change a thing.

By now some of you are wondering what is the x2 for?  Well, 2 years ago tomorrow, I decided that I had enough of hacking my way through the day that I put down the cancer sticks and walked away from them.  Still have cravings every so often, but as long as I don’t act on them I am good.  “Hey, Sarge, why did you think of this today?”  Well, let me tell you.  On my way into the salt mine today, I heard an advertisement on the radio in the family transport for one of those stop smoking in one session “gurus.”  I went cold turkey and it was a day to day struggle to overcome the urge to light up, but  I think that I am stronger for it and I didn’t substitute one crutch for another.  I was offered some of those crutches while on AD, but I always told the docs, when I was ready I would walk away and that is what I did.  I don’t claim to be a non-smoker, I claim that I am a reformed smoker.  The next question from the doc is “How long” and now Sarge can tell them “Over two years.”
