We are headed out on a three week vacation. We are traveling about 1.5-2 hours west. LOL We are looking forward to seeing a few RV friends. We will be in the same park with Don & Evelyn. Evelyn is one of the folks who makes me look good in writing. She has the combination of errors to get Johnny ready to publish.
They had to work proofing this one. I even doubled up on some of the pages, and used most of the same chapter twice. Boy, am I good!?!? LOL
Johnny is going to be a GOOD small book, a fast read in large print.
Tomorrow’s trip will take us by our mail forwarding service so we will stop for a mail call. That saves postage. That allows us to visit a short time with the folks who handle our mail. US Pak and Ship has a good crew. We have had very few problems getting our mail ‘second hand’.
Getting your mail every 2 or 3 weeks takes some getting used to. In the USN mail wasn’t prompt, but much better than one would expect. Even at sea, when on an air craft carrier we received mail once or twice a week via mail plane.
There are several ships that accompany an aircraft carrier. Once the Mail plane lands the mail was sorted. One of the Ships helicopter crews delivers the destroyers and support ships mail.
If we were taking on fuel, ammo or supplies, we also delivered their mail, but they got theirs by a high line stretched between the ships. We also transferred men via high line. The ‘high line’ is something like a ‘zip-line’.
If it was close a religion’s ‘holy days’ many times we high lined our chaplain over for services. Once in rough seas in the North Atlantic our ships swayed together and we ‘baptized’ our chaplain in cold salt water. He laughed about it.
Military Chaplains are well respected. Chaplains must know many religions customs and practices. Many times they do different religion’s services. The simple one is a Catholic or Protestant chaplain will do the services for both denominations. The Chaplain’s Corps is not large enough to have all religions available at every base and ship.
Some of you remember Ora, she is a sweetheart and married to Mixon, a retired Army Chaplain. One reason we met Ora is she also has a Cochlear Implant. I was a candidate, and wanted to pick her brain. We had a great visit and boy do they have some tales. I miss Ora’s blog.
