Going to the Ball

Every year, NAS Whidbey hosts a ball for all of the squadrons that fly the Prowler airplane.  It used to have the really illustrious title of, “Prowler Ball.”  Since the Navy has now added the newest version of the Prowler (an airplane called the Growler), the name had to be changed to because it wasn’t […]

1. Facebook or Twitter? Facebook.  I’m not concise enough to work with only 140 characters. 2. Hard Tacos or Soft Tacos?

Technical Difficulties

NavyGuy broke the internet. So my triumphant return to blogging after two weeks of family fun time will have to wait until he’s done yelling at the modem/router/whatever computer thing is misbehaving. In the meantime, which would make you more twitchy…?  No internet access, or spending time with your family for two weeks? 😉   Cast […]

(This post is going up a little early because I haven’t put anything up on the blog in a few days, so this way I’ll feel a little less guilty.) How was your week?  Mine has been chock full.  My mom and Grandpa arrived on Wednesday from Wisconsin, and we’ve been busy visiting and sightseeing […]

Cheers… to Mom and Grandpa arriving for a visit on Wednesday!  89 years young, Grandpa is thrilled to get the chance to visit the Navy base (and see us), and Mom is thrilled to visit Shipwreck Days, the giant garage sale on main street (and see Tally). Jeers… to the list of cleaning tasks remaining. […]
