So, last weekend Penny and I went to Boise to deliver Josh's old loft bed to my brother's son Joel. My mom had commented that she had a box of pics and stuff that she was going to send back with us. Well, low and behold, on top of that box of pictures was this picture. A picture of my graduating basic training "flight"; the group of guys I went through basic training with at Lackland AFB, Texas... WOW! Me thinks that is pretty cool so I thought I would share! That was a pivotal time in my life that helped to make me the FREAK I am today! hehehe By the way, I am third from the left on the top row. Thanks for keeping this picture for me mom!!! I had TOTALLY forgotten about it!
Twenty one years and eightish months later, in July 2004, this is the group I retired with at Offutt AFB, Nebraska... I appreciate the time and expense expended by this group to come to Omaha and celebrate this event with us. Thanks again EVERYONE! And thanks to everyone that WANTED to be there and couldn't make it. I know sometimes things just don't work out...
My actual retirement date was October 1st 2004 so my total military service ended up being something like 21 years, 11 months and 13 days... Not that I am counting...
Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1.
Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.
Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail..
What can I do?
First, keep in mind that Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.
Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.
However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.
Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources).
In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.
In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7...
P.S. Thanks to Matt for sending me this CLASSIC! I just had to add it for posterity!!!
Ah admit Ah haf been a bitty bit busy lately an' haf been ignoring da blog a bitty bit bit. SO, Ah skeedaddled online an' fount some ruby scruff stuff ta cyfer up fer someones hootinany.
Hope y'all likey!
