Greetings foolish mortals!!!  Happy Friday and TBIF!!! 

This date has a momentous meaning for me. February 10th, 1997, 20 years ago, I completed my duty and was honorably discharged from the United States Navy. I look back at my time and do miss the flying, the jumping out of the helicopter, the beautiful, clear skies at midnight while looking up from somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and the deep blue of the ocean. I visited many countries and experienced different cultures and appreciated it all. I drank myself into drunken stupors with mates, crossed the equator, twice and traversed the Panama Canal twice. I made great friends and lost a best friend. I lived life and did my thing and left a lasting memory for those who came after me.

Great times and until the next time...

BBP out!!!
