Yeah - someone finally answered the question for the movie. They even knew who he was talking about - Frederika Bimmel - It was from Silence of the Lambs (a personal favorite of mine). No I can't send you sand. 1. You didn't ID yourself and 2. I'm not allowed to mail stuff like that out.
This evening I went on a scavenger hunt with one of our Senior NCOs. We went to the motor pool to do some "acquisition" - since I'm an acquisition professional I thought for sure I would be good at it. Unfortunately the guy we talked to for approval was not as willing to make a decision as the guy a few weeks ago...we'll have to check back tomorrow to complete the "acquisition" (of a bus seat as a couch for my CHU). Afterwards we all decided it was a bad idea to ask permission rather than beg forgiveness [when will I learn Gwyn?]. But we needed to ask for some tools...so we had to at least explain what we were up to.
As I was reading The Rick and Bubba Code - they mentioned something I quite agree with. All men should marry up. I know I did. My wife is clearly more beautiful and worthy of more than a funny looking balding guy like me. For her - I am thankful - thanks to R&B for reminding me of how lucky I am.
Weather is in transition. These days it is nice. Cool in morning and evening then approaching warm in afternoons. I know pretty soon it will be miserably hot.
