Good morning Sunshines! I just wanted to send you all prayers and well wishes today and forever! I know it'll be Thanksgiving and Christmas leave time for our Sailors and Marines. Sending prayers for safe travels and fun!

Catsmom....thanks for the compliments.  Like all of us, I;'m so proud of my Munchkin, the Sailor and what he is doing.  And, he is a handsome devil, for sure....and unaffected by it except for the ladies....who fall all over him....ha.....

Carrie.....thanks again for your kind words.  The Pennsylvania Dutch have an old saying, one that rings true.  It is:  "We get too soon old, and too late smart".  I've always tried to keep a step or two ahead of that....ha.

One of the best things about the aging process (and there are many), is the learning experience that comes to those who pay attention. 

I love the Marine Corps.  It is true, once a Marine, always a Marine and am so proud of serving with them and being a part of the best fighting force in the world.  It was one of the hardest things I ever did, becoming a Marine.  By the time Boot Camp was over, we knew EXACTLY who we were and what we were capable of accomplishing.  I'm not quite as active in the organizations of Marines as I used to be...but still hold my membership in the Women Marines Association proudly and support the Marine Corps Leager, Toys for Tots, etc.

Thanks for your devine thoughts.

GrandmaBarB,,,I want to thank you for ALL your Marine Services to this Country and your Longevity of knowledges, experiences, encouragement that we can still do :-) (hilarious) it if we put our minds to it! I'm glad I'm one of the Bless one to received this in my spirit what you pass on and I promise you, I will pass it along that GrandmaBarB said:......., has I continue to walk on my Journey of Devine Destiny! (Greatness) You are a GEM that sparkler (light the pathway for ppl to see without fear)! I truly feel Honor to have met you! Thank you!!!! :-)

hi everyone, just wanted to pop in and say hello. GrandmaBarB, love the pictures of your handsome Sailor. Hope you all are doing well. been busy and going a little crazy at work. LOL amazing what can happen with a new boss who doesn't know how to do her job... Hope you all have a good weekend.

Too Tall.  I get the Marine thing with shoes.  Having served in that outfit, a proud wearer of the EGA, shoes were almost an obsession.

Back in those days, your new shoes were brown leather...untreated.  You were expected to bring them up to mirrored black in just a short time;.

Sometimes, the DI's would hold "strip day" where we had to strip the shoes back down to "new" condition and start all over again....ha.  Nothing like Recruit Discipline to grow ya up in a hurry.

Comment by GrandmaBarB on October 10, 2014 at 12:39pm's not so much "wisdom"'s LONGEVITY.   I'm so old, probably have seen it or done it...or watched it...or wanted to do it....ha.

I truly believe my service in the Marines did a lot for my knowledge base about all things Military...and just want to pass it along to sooth fears, or dispel myths, etc.

Thanks for the compliments on my darling Munchkin.

GrandmaBarb! He's so very handsome! That shine looks good! When I was active duty Army medic, the OIC of our clinic had a contest every week for who had the best shine on our footwear! LOL!!! Guess who won every week? LOL Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Happy Friday everyone, good to see too tall Joan, Coach Sheila, Renee and our Sister GrandmaBarB post this week.   Glad everything going well for your son too tall Joan and you.   GrandmaBarb, what a lovely pics of your fine sailor, and CONGRATS to him and you on passing his Petty Officer test.    Also, you are quiet welcome and I'm glad I brighten your day, it is so much easier to be kind to ppl and show how much you appreciate them, they time and efforts!   The World would be a much better place for us to live in, if ppl will just respect themselves and other human being and stop be selfish and hating!   You're just a sweet person who bring wisdom, much experiences and knowledge to this group.   You even take the time out to research infor to bring Facts back to this group and keep everybody straight when they get out of place here with some of your jokes!    Has you say all the time:   Remind them all this is what they sign-up for!   Ha    Always, good to hear from you and know that you are still during good and haven't missed a beat in Life!   (Ha)   ;-)

Hi ladies. Today is my Friday because it is an in service day today & I don't have to go in. Love 3 day weekends, a perk for working in education. Lol
GrandmaBarB glad to have some input from's been awhile. You have a very handsome grandson. Congratulations to him on his new endeavor.
Love your comment about his shiny shoes. My daddy was also a marine. As a kid he took pride in spit shining his boots and shoes, spending what seemed like hours getting that perfect shine. The first time I saw my daughters boots that only need the tips shined, I about died. Times have changed
