Good to be back home but I enjoyed Daytona.
I had a pick-up truck, a Chevy, that I really liked but you had to know how to start it. I mean, you didn't just jump in, turn the key and the engine started.
You had to give it just the right amount of gas AND choke at just the right time in order to get the engine started. On more than one occasion, I "flooded it" (too much gas in the carbuerator) and that is a pain. It always happened when I was in a hurry.
I really don't miss that.
TOTD: Anything that you don't really miss? It could be technology, a musical genra (Ska, for instance) or a show like The Love Boat.Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

I don't miss corded land line phones. That used to be all we had.
If you were not there in the same room as the phone, you missed the call.
I think the best invention of my lifetime so far is the hand held
smartphone (mini mobile computer) devise.

I don't miss 7am meetings at the office listening to the president of the company drone on and on about the glories of technology. :D
Lucky people back in St Louis don't have to listen to it now---he was dismissed and probably is doing it to some other unlucky folks at a similar company.

School, being a kid. I hated it.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

TOTD: Kollege graduation, and I didn't really need it. I was in under the GI bill, and the class were just a bunch of dumb kids. I had decided to stay home when I got a letter from the school wanting a written excuse from my parents. Hell, I was married and raising a family!
Dumb students, dumb profs, dumb school........but I needed a piece of paper to slap down on a desk when I got an interview for a job.

The 301st RSG, my first AGR tour. Imagine the Corleone family in uniform, but without the honor code. Our CSM came back from Iraq as an E4. We had an O5 in our higher headquarters who is doing 31 years in Leavenworth.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
