    Well, as I’m a little ahead of you guys, it’s reasonable for me to say:

    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

    Merry Christmas one and all, may you have a safe, prosperous, healthy and happy New Year. With a prayer to those of the Rott family that are currently enjoying (not) the Obama economic malaise.

    Merry Christmas all you Rotties. Thank goodness for the Rott. I know I can always swing by this place and find amongst the empty whisky and whiskey bottles, not to mention the piles of beer cans, burned out stogies and BC’s pron collection, like-minded people and always a chuckle, usually a much needed chuckle.
    Please keep our troops in your thoughts, especially those deployed and most especially those in harms way.

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Hope you all got what you wanted.

    Win, Win.

    Retired Spook growls and barks:

    Hope everyone had as good a Christmas as I did. We had 4 out of 6 offspring (3 out of six spouses), and 7 out of 10 grandkids here for Christmas. I’ve flown RC helicopters, made spangled headbands, painted fingernails (blue and silver chevrons; Air Force, after all) and built little tiny catapults. Can’t remember when I’ve had this much fun and kept my clothes on!

    The Family’s Token Jarhead Marine left on the 15th, along with 5000 of his closest friends on an extended ocean voyage, courtesy of our kindly Uncle Samuel, aboard the USS Iwo Jima.

    If you have a spare prayer, good wish, or happy thought, and would like to send it their way, we’d all very much appreciate it. We are all hoping that its the most boring deployment in the history of Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children.

    Did you realize that Marine Aviation means that America’s Navy’s Army has its own Air Force?

    This being “Boxing Day”, those wishes are “redistributed” in equal volume. Merry, Happy, Joyful WHATEVER it is you celebrate during this season. :em01:

    I went up to my gun club yesterday for a little fun. It was packed with people trying out their new “Christmas presents.”
    The guy in the next lane was playing with his brand new AK47. He was having a few issues with the sights. (Rifle was shooting low) He remarked that he had forgotten how to adjust them, but had learned in the army.

    “Russian army? No problem. I think I have a hammer you can borrow.”
    And in a belated Christmas gift, it seems that Pakistan is not to happy with the recently concluded season of Showtime’s “Homeland.”
    My response?
    Showtime’s response?

    My nephew is on the Iwo Jima. VMM 365 flying the Osprey. I too am hoping for the quietest deployment ever.

    Small world, indeed!!! My SIL is Maint Control officer for VMM-365. If he has anything to say about it, 100% of the aircraft will be 100% operational, 100% of the time. (Of course, this is the V-22 we’re talking about.)
