I surely can’t take the credit. Husband was 68-2000. Army infantry officer. We have an age difference between us however. I’m younger, not that it matters.
As for husband, his father before him was an officer, as was his father. Now on the other hand, my upbringing was not nearly so grandiose. My mother was army as was my father. He was not an officer however, but a Master Sergeant.
My mother God love her, was born and raised Texas bred. My earliest memories are of a lady that taught me early on to be a lady, though I have surely let her down throughout the years. But in our house we were taught to say “Yes Mam and Yes Sir.”
And when we crossed the line, it was not “calm down and go in time out”. It was “At ease young lady!” Lol… God love her.
Anyway, before I started school, I knew the meaning of PDQ, ASAP, KP, and “at ease”. (see above)
Okay, have gone on and on making much ado about nothing. I have successfully sheathed my trusty pirate sword and am off to bed celebrating that as of now, there is hope for this country because Dear Leader has not yet won another election.
Regards Don, and to all, goodnight.
