Default I'm back

Sorry I haven't been on in a couple of weeks. It's been real crazy around here. But things are getting back to normal.
My family and I traveled to Cape May NJ to watch my son graduate from Coast Guard boot camp. It was such an amazing experience. My oldest son and I were both allowed to be in the ceremony to present him his certificate since we are firefighters. Words can not describe the level of pride I felt.
Then came his short leave... that went by waaay too fast. But the real fun began this past friday. He had to drive his truck to Dallas to have it shipped to his duty station. He didn't bother to call and find out if there were any special requirements for shipping his truck. So, he gets to the vehicle processing center and they inspect his car. He has to provide them with the wheel lock key, then they tell him he can't ship his truck dirty. So he had to go wash it. Then they tell him that his amp needs brackets mounted to keep it steady. (The back seat had to be removed to get to it. lol). Now that all of that is done, they tell him he has... wait for it... too much gas in the tank. ????? So now he has to pay $20 to have the gas siphoned out of his truck. After all of this they ask for profe of ownership. So, he gives them every piece of paper he has on it. Mind you, he bought the truck on wednesday, 2 days before. They inform him that none of the paperwork he has is sufficient. He needs either the title or reciept for registration. Neither of which have gone through the state system.
So, he can't ship the truck. He goes to the airport and parks his truck. I told him to leave the keys in the fuel door and a friend of mine would go get it for us. So, later that night after he is on the plane to Seattle, my friend calls me to let me know the key won't start the truck. My son took the ignition key with him... grrrr
So, saturday morning, I drive to Dallas with my oldest son and spend 2 hours sitting in the parking garage at DFW airport waiting for a locksmith. The locksmith was able to make me a key but charged me $165 to do it.
Anyway, we finally got home around 10pm.

But dispite all of that, my son is now a proud member of the United States Coast Guard, stationed in Kodiak Alaska. He is on the Cutter Alex Haley.

I'm a proud pappa!!!
I believe in dragons, the perfect woman, and other mythical creatures.
