Hey vets having a few beers with former cobra driver [View all]

Crazy morning after work dog got sprayed by skunk. I'm invoking use em or lose em mode on sick personal days and vacation time. Reason I may be out job come November not sweating it. Another union outfit called and has DOT drug screen and physical set up Monday.

Anyway wife called from her office and asked does he the boog smell of skunk nope all good I bathed him peroxide wash baking soda dish liquid and then twice with this skunk shampoo. So the wife is bringing her team to house to work on project for their upcoming conference. So I browned some burger tossed in green red peppers and onion in crockpot a bigly amount of honey bar b q sauce. I'm out here and walked down to local pub, to meet sgt major a tactical rendezvous not with destiny just barley sodas. Sgt major great people he served 101st Vietnam around ripcord. And he recently lost his wife so he is not in good place.

Anyway we're sitting having few and in walks our good friend Sammy with a cane his daughter dropped him off. He had to get out House been cooped up over hip replacement. we all moved to the deck easier on Sam sitting at tables , Sam is I think 69 now and I respect Sam and I'm glad he is out of rehab and doing well.

Years ago at a poker game that I usually hold at my house. After a good many beers Sam told us this story. one time in Vietnam him and his co pilot crashed and after a Huey picked em up they climbed in another cobra he said we had infantry that was in tight spot with NVA. and then he added it was fucking personal that is how he told us fucking personal because he wanted to kill the 12.7 heavy machine gun. What a stud army teaches you to fly as teenager and you go and do a fine job I mentioned to Sam that night at poker your counterparts with Kremlin hind drivers just the thought of hind used to bring chills to me , hind helicopters flying death when I was kid Partying playing soldier in west Germany. And Sam just asked me if he could borrow my GT he wants take wife away for weekend in October he loves the mustang I say 2010 the year ford did it wright on mustang reissued V8 six speed ,he says he will be ok I said no problem mr. I added I'll come will just sit wife in back she is a hobbit.
