Hey folks, looks who's back!!!!!!
I sort of stumbled into a "writer's block" and failed to get up for a month.
"AWHN" you ask?
That's an abbreviation from a good friend of mine, Mr. Bill Schoonover.
Bill's a retired Navy CPO, works for a major Memphis based company, and is an all around good guy.
If I needed something all the way up here in Jersey, Bill is the kind of guy that would make it happen. Same thing here for Bill if he needed something.
Bill has a habit of working from home from time to time.
He occasionally signs off on his emails with "AWHN".
"At Home Working Naked".
I'm reminded of Bill today because of politics. It's an ugly race out there (at least among the Republicans right now). There isn't a good candidate in the field. Jon Hunstman was the most decent of the group, but "centrist" isn't in fashion with today's GOP.
Seriously, a turd in a punch bowl has more appeal than ANY of the four primary survivors.
They all scream about "Big Government".
The only thing "Big" about our "Big Government" is the amount being overspent on contractors. You know, the guys that shove their dirty money into Republican pockets and their "Super PACs".
They claim to be "pro military", yet they are ready to throw well trained men and women to the curb. If they get their way, they will gut the services of senior officers and enlisted.
God forbid those men and women who've served our country get a pension.
Funny, the Republicans call it, "an entitlement".
I want our veterans to have health care.
I want our veterans to have a well earned retirement.
God bless everyone of those that would put themselves in harm's way to protect us.
They stood up for this country.
Just like my father, my grandfathers, and four of my uncles did.
Just like two of my cousins did.
Just like my two older brothers did.
Just like my niece and nephew-in-law are doing today.
A guy like Bill will charge Hell with a bucket of water.
The U.S. Navy was lucky to have him.
So was this government.
The Republicans want to "cut Big Government".
Maybe they should start with their bloated office budgets and staffs.
Oh, and hold the Lockheed-Martin's of the world accountable.
Sadly, Bill has a better chance dousing Hell.
Until the next time, all y'all take care of yourselves.
