Today is our 9th anniversary, and we are both working from our home offices, so last night, hubby surprised me with this little gift:

It's about the size of a dime, which is perfect and, of course, it's blue, so I love it.
Very beautiful!!!

My wife, a high school econ teacher, is at Parris Island this week with the Marines for a teacher workshop, where they're basically giving them an idea of what boot camp is like. She texted me this picture earlier today:

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Way to go, auntiehill! It looks gorgeous....congrats!

Re: B.J.

Are they allowed to have loaded weapons while they're at Parris Island? I noticed the M4 carbine she's holding doesn't have an ammo clip. Do they actually get to fire any live ammunition?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Ah, the SMAW rocket launcher. I think Bofors in Sweden manufactures those for the U.S. military under contract. If it's not Swedish then it's Israeli, but it's definitely an imported system.

^ Nice scenery!

Saw this dump truck on the way to work this morning. Even the graffiti in this city is geeky!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

You look like a member of the Romanov or Hanover dynasty. Milk that for all it's worth. Start spreading rumors about your bloodline.

At this point I'm just counting down the days until I'm allowed to trim that beastly thing. Less than two weeks to go!
