Had an inmate in the county jail I work in vet me as a Ranger today.

He stopped me and said "Hey, CO, I hear that you're a scrolled Ranger..."

Now, that's not something you'd EVER expect to hear, especially from an inmate in the county lockup. a SCROLLED Ranger...

So I told him that yes, I was. What do you know about things like that?

He queried me if I knew either Max Mullen or Danny McKnight.

I told him that they weren't face to face friends, but yes, I know who they are. He wanted an explanation as to who they were, not just my assertion as to knowing who they were.

After he was satisfied, I asked how he knows of these guys, to which he replied "They are instructors at California air-soft"

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. They frolic and romp all day with one another.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing. They each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They run and play together until the day comes when one of them suddenly stops playing and looks off into the distance. The nose twitches. The ears are up. The bright eyes are intent. The eager body quivers. Suddenly this one runs from the group, faster and faster, leaping and flying over the tall green grass.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace, clinging together in joyous reunion. Happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your cherished pet, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.

And with your pet beside you once again, you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

I have always believed that but I have never ever seen it in print before.

Comforting.

Crappy B-day Present:

"The selecting office has indicated that you were not selected for the position. Another candidate was selected for this position"

I was so hyped for this position out in North Dakota with the Bureau of Indian Affairs. I really liked the Chief, the equipment, area etc..


Now I am not sure what direction I will take.

Short Term: Reclassing into an intel MOS (35 F or 35 N) and going to the school.

That low volume, extremely fast legal info that is spewn out after a radio commercial. It's usually right after a car dealer commercial where they only have one of the models listed at that price, and there ain't nothing in it. Or, the "it's obviously too good to be true" commercials.

Have you seen the Nugenix commercials with Frank Thomas? They say "complimentarybottle by texting ***** to whatever number". But, what they don't tell you is that "complimentary" means that you provide your credit card information to cover $4.99 shipping+handling and you're probably on the hook for a stupid freaking subscription. Glad I didn't bite.

For the first time ever in my life:

I am ordering fast food at the counter and the guy says at the end...."OK that will be $7.65....wait a minute, let me add your senior discount...."

I'm 52.

Anything worth doing is worth doing twice. Just a scope job, nothing major.

Feel for ya Gsniper. I got a few years on you and I am a picture of health.

Right. You look like a suitcase. If you had twin pull tabs on your taint your front scar would meet your back scar.
