Kathy (IT sailor)-

Everyone buys a car when they get to Misawa.  It is a fairly large base with people arriving and departing so there are plenty of cars for sale.  They drive on the left side of the road so the steering column is on the right side.  The Japanese don't like to plow their roads and they are not marked well.  Winter should be an adventure!  There are some mountains nearby to snowboard on.

AntiM- what an awful thing to have to witness;  thoughts and prayers to the families and all affected. 

T-lynn, now that Blondie has managed a few days off, you have jumped right in and taken her place!  lol.
g/l with scouts and packing:

So, my sister dug up a whole bag full of gladiolas last fall, and gave them to me as she thought she would be moving. (hasn't moved yet).  It was around the holidays and I was so pre-occupied at the time, I told someone,  Just put them in the basement for now.
Well, a couple weeks ago she asked me if I'd planted them.
Planted them???? (oops)  I didn't even remember I Had them!  Then, wouldn't you know it, I could Not find them.  Naturally.    And I only found them by mistake, ha ha. 
Now this is the first time I'd really looked into this bag, and there must have been over a hundred bulbs in there!
I felt so guilty that she had taken all that time to dig them up-so hubby helped me clear a bed and we planted them
Anyone know if they will grow??

Welcome, new moms! 
Let us know how it's going with your sailors!

AntiM-so scary that there are those drugs available

Heading off the Columbus Ohio with two of my GF-to visit one girl's son and my brother

Comment by T-Lynn on July 18, 2014 at 9:32pm


 So Angel has lost her secret spot. I bet that was surprise. But I hope those two become friends.

Yippee Blondie - does this means a vacation? Have FUN !!!!

New Moms - let us know when your sailors arrive. Us moms here like to hear that they are safe.

Bridal shower - how exciting.

Anti M - thank you for sharing the video. I love the beat of the drums. I was dancing in my chair. But mostly I was looking for you. NO luck. Have to look again.

Oh dear - that poor guy got that drug? Yes, sad.

This weekend - packing and more packing. No pics yet - sorry. But the kids will be taking some soon.

Wish all sweet dreams. hugs

Comment by Anti M on July 18, 2014 at 7:01pm

blm.. turns out it was not depression suicide, but drugs... and not just any drugs, ones which only Native Americans should be using with spirit guides and controlled surroundings.  Still tragic, but a good warning not to mess with certain things.  My friends are scarred for life, even with all the professional counseling being provided for free.  I am sad and angry.  

But yay for puppies and Norfolk!

Comment by blm on July 18, 2014 at 12:00pm

Anti M-so sad when someone sees no other way out a a situation

Blondie WOOHOO

My daughter is adjusting to Norfolk-but fiance is there so that is a no brainer-got themselves a puppy and they are enjoying that. No new news on wedding plans-everything in place for now. Thinking a maybe a shower now that she is back in states.

Comment by Blondie on July 18, 2014 at 7:45am

T-Lynn, are you moving?  pictures, but wait a week, I'll be gone.  LOL

Hope everyone stays Safe and Happy.  Prayers for all Military.  Hugs to all moms

Because Misawa is isolated, he will want a cheap used car.

If he were headed to Yokosuka or Sasebo,  nope.

Comment by Kathy(ITSailor) on July 18, 2014 at 12:57am

boilermom:  Thanks for the info.  I've heard Misawa is a cold area.  We are from Washington State and he is a snowboarder from back in his middle-school days.  He did A and C School in Pensacola and the last two years in Hawaii.  He is SOOOO ready to be out of tropical weather and back into winter sports!  Thanks for the tip on the passport - I let him know. Do most Sailors end up getting cars once they are there?
