1. I am most proud of all of our young 'uns.. We have four living children. Each one of them has their own special talents.
We have a submariner, an actress who still likes to play dress up and pretend to be a fairy or a power ranger.
We have a Marine who is a crack shot. He can shoot a target the size of a quarter 500 yards away.
We also have the baby. She has a unique take on life and is full of surprises.
2. I am embarrassed to admit this one is difficult to come up with. I don’t embarrass easily. One thing that could be embarrassing is that my youngest son once flipped me across the room.
This really isn’t embarrassing. He was demonstrating to his sisters how to protect themselves. I locked around his neck in my old security guard training mode and he could not break the hold in the traditional way.
His marine training kicked in. I don’t know what happened next. All I know is that in the blink of an eye I was flat on my back on the other side of the room. He was apologetic and upset that he had beaten me up. All I could say was, “We are pretending and doing this in slow motion."
3. My super-power might be___This is difficult to say. I can usually think of lots of things to write about. I guess my super power is the ability to bore one to death.
I like to write. One time, my father was backing a candidate for mayor. The mayor asked my father to write a speech for him. My father agreed, but did not have time.
He asked me, a college student, to write the speech. Later, the candidate’s opponent said, “I would have got elected if Bruce had written my speech.” I took that as a compliment. No one other than me, Suzanne, and my parents ever knew it was me.
4. I really wish I could _have a do over. If I could go back and not say the stupid things I have said, or do the stupid things I have done, I would like to fix them. However, we live life forward and try to learn from our mistakes.
Well friends, we are off to the island to get our baby. She will be home for a few weeks. While home she has been asked to guard some celebrities. Chances are good that, unless you are into the comics or fantasy “CON” network, you have never heard of these people. I know I haven’t.
The Marine will be in serious need of prayers for the next few months. We can’t say where he will be but he does need your prayers.
And, to our little aquatic feline friend, “Hang 20, dudette!”
Have a great week and catch you on the flip.
