POTD Ideas

Help.  Please. It’s been a very quiet week around here.  The big excitement today was sitting in the naval hospital pharmacy waiting for prescription refills for an hour and a half.  So aside from a photo of the uniformed folk getting to cut in front of me in line at the pharmacy (military members in […]

Cheers and Jeers

Cheers… to a ridiculous, throw-back, babysitter-style dinner of macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, and fruit, topped off with Popsicles for dessert (I say babysitter style because all I ever remember eating when we had a babysitter as kids were hot dogs and mac and cheese… possibly with the hot dogs cut up in the mac […]

Hawaii Travel Guide: Pearl Harbor

Friday morning, our third full day of our Honey-Versary, we set out for Pearl Harbor Naval Base.  NavyGuy had spent a week there for his exercise, but he’d been on the “working” part of the base, as opposed to all of the memorials and attractions that are in a separate area.  I found a map […]
