Blog Hiatus Off

So in my sleep deprived state allow me to make a few observations. The first is one that only my military readers will get so bare with me. I have learned that one cannot fully comprehend the horror that is known as low quarters until you have climbed up San Francisco's Nob Hill in them. Walking down in them is no picnic either however the misery was not as great. I kid you not, if I could have cut off my own feet at the top of the hill I would have just to stop the pain. I guess that I should consider myself blessed because so far I have not taken a tumble down the hill yet but I still have seven more days of this so I am not out of the woods yet. Yes I am aware that there is a trolley however that brings me to my next point...

I have concluded...and I am not alone on this one...that San Francisco is the most unfriendly military town any of us have ever been to. So far members of our group have encountered everything from evil stares to assault with a cane and we have only been here for two days. Now I respect the right to free speech as much as the next gal but what would possess someone to bitch me out for being in the military. Last time I checked...the Coast Guard had very little in common with the Nazis and I am damn certain that I had nothing to do with the fact that this particular individual is homeless. Fortunately, my common sense prevailed and I did not stand around and try to convince him of this....I walked away and added San Francisco to my list of places that I NEVER want to get stationed at.

As busy as we have been over the past few days have been...the "real deal" hasn't even started yet. So on that note...I am calling it a night but will leave you with this....

Clearly someone was not crossing their fingers like I asked because the Yankees lost their past two games. The lose to the Rays wasn't too bad but I was saddened and slightly embarrassed by the lose to the Mariners.

Geek That Is Millie, I became an avid fan of your blog because of your writing, in spite of the fact that you are in the military. I know that the Coast Guard is qusi-military but the fact is that you are still a weapon of the US Govt and therefore not to be trusted. To be perfectly honest, I cannot blame anyone who exercises their right to free speech and criticises the military. In recent years, those in your profession have done more harm than good and there are those of us who are tired of it.

Again, I am loyal reader and fan of your blog. I even consider you to be an e-friend however I do not approve of your profession and hope that your insight will get the best of you and you will find your freedom.

Your writing proves that you are far too smart to be a pawn of the government.

Hey Vince, what do you do for a living so I knock your way of life in effort (which failed miserably by the way) to sound smart.

Millie, What are you doing there anyway?

When are you going to start blogging again?

I don't know. With a chest like yours, I can understand why men would risk hellfire for you.
