More travel stuff…

So… as usual I’m on the road. First let me wish all you Mothers out there Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you for having us, putting up with us and kicking us out the door to become adults in our own right. Literally, without y’all WE wouldn’t exist!

A funny overheard (along with a whole bunch of other people) outside the exchange. Family of three Daddy, Momma, and 3-4 year old little girl. Momma says to Daddy, “I could use a hot shower” (now it’s in the mid-80’s very little wind, better known as STICKY); little girl pipes up, as only little girls can at the top of her lungs, “Mommy, you can’t take a shower with Daddy, you make too much noise when you do!” I about fell out trying to keep from laughing, and others were chuckling/laughing; as the Momma grabbed the little girl and literally RAN for their car.

What is it they say, out of the mouths of babes??? 🙂

Got this in an email today, NOT good if true…

I had a doctors appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found something very interesting I would like to pass along. While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the exam, three questions.

(1. Did I feel stressed?)
(2. Did I feel threatened?)
(3. Did I feel like doing harm to someone?)

The nurse then informed me, if I had answered yes to any of the questions, I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.

I am a Viet Nam vet and 15 year cc permit holder. Looks like they are going after us vets.

And a couple of pics from the trip thus far…

Fishes 🙂

These are Japanese Carp, better known as Koi. This was taken at the Hilton Hawaiian Village yesterday.

Oh yeah, just a point of interest, when we were checking in, I asked how full the hotel was, the clerk indicated they were 83% full, and expecting to be 94% full as of Monday!

So it does appear people are still traveling, just most of them are Japanese (this is one of their favorite hotels in Hawaii)

Hawaii Kai golf course- A nice little par 3 of ONLY 215 yards, into the wind… At least I didn’t get wet 🙂

I hope y’all have a good week!

  1. Let me just say that I hate you for being in Hawaii.

    Bring me back a buff, bronzed surfer dude.

  2. Hope this trip is somewhat enjoyable. 🙂

    Great story…children see and hear way more than we give them credit.

  3. jealous .. v.jealous (never been to Hawaii!) … and hehehehe to your little girls story … poor mum (lucky dad?)

    enjoy your trip (as much as you can!).

  4. FG- Tank you… tank you… He wouldn’t fit in the suitcase, and probably spoil before I could get him to you 🙂

    RT- It is, since we actually got a day and a half of down time, and played GOLF…er mostly golf, a little flog too 🙂 On the kids, YES THEY DO 🙂

    Julie- It’s really not that special… Over priced, crowded and PITA locals… I’m trying to enjoy 🙂

  5. I am sickened that a veteran would be asked those questions. The motives and agenda of this administration concern me more and more each day.

  6. Have a nice trip.

    I’ve stayed away from the VA so far and will as long as I can. The local VA hospital is a snake pit.

  7. Did you see the guy that has your dream job on the beach? Two of my best friends just came back from a vacation in Hawaii. They brought me back some post cards and now I’m torn between saving for a trip to the Grand Canyon or going for the gusto and making my destination Hawaii!

  8. JR- You’re welcome

    ADM- Yep, they tell the truth whether we want it or not…

    KLR- me too, matter of fact all of the vets I talk to are really getting angry about this, and the other crap being pulled.

    Crucis- Agree!

    FF- Yes I did, he won’t give it up 🙂 Still playing golf four days a week after work too!
