This & That

Top 30 Very Funny Animals Memes #Jokes:
I saw this on Kimberly's blog, who got it from Erin, who got it from someone else, etc, etc, etc.  It looked like fun, so if the 123 things tab above isn't enough, here's some more stuff about ME!

( X ) Shot a gun
It's been a while but I actually own a 12-gauge singleshot shotgun.  I also learned to shoot a .45 in bootcamp.

( X ) Gone on a blind date
Yes, like most - it was awkward.

(X) Skipped school
It was on senior skip day, so I was with a bunch of friends and our parents all knew about it.

( ) Watched someone die
No, thankfully.  I saw my Dad right after he'd passed.  But does a kitten count?  If so, yes.

(X) Visited Canada
Yes, there are 2 border crossings withing 40 miles of me.  Spent my honeymoon in Niagara Falls on the Canadian side because they have a better view of the falls. Our 5 year anniversary was in Niagara Falls and Toronto.

(X) Visited Hawaii
Yes.  Several times.  One time as a freshman, once on my senior trip and once while in the Navy.  That time meant the most to me, since we manned the rails as we went by the Arizona Memorial and it was very touching.

( ) Visited Cuba

( ) Visited Europe
Nope, but I'd love to.

Tijuana & Cozumel (where Randy proposed to me!)

Nope, I would love to!  I want to go out on the glass walk thing.

(X) Flown in a helicopter
Yes.  One of these puppies.  Off and onto an aircraft carrier. 
 CH-53E Black Stallion
And quite honestly - if those rotors were turning on the flightdeck - people would have to be lying on the mail bags so they didn't get blown over the side!

Bonus... I also did this...... launched & recovered on a carrier.
C-2A Greyhouse "COD"
