So Much for Resistance.....

After years of reading them and resisting this step, I am now writing my first blog post. Heaven help us all!

My youngest daughter, a mere child of 18 years, did every last speck of the heavy (computing) lifting to create this electronic forum, including picking out the 'look.' My wife (aka The Boss) approved the look, and that basically settled things. My second-oldest daughter (at 28, rapidly closing in on mature woman status) is coming in a few days, and the youngest tells me that her older sister will show me everything I need to know about making this work smoothly and look superb. Sometimes, I believe they are the two denizens of design in the family. Stand by for changes, I guess.

From time to time, I will post about the effort here to support soldiers, Marines and the occasional sailor and airman doing the heavy lifting in Afghanistan. There is a lot going on, and I hope to be able to share the stories of these exceptional people and maybe a photo or two along the way.


  1. For one of the few times in my life - I am speechless. And happy as heck!

    Let's see how long it takes you to ban me from comments friend. LOL

  2. Well, I can already see that I didn't understand how to set this up to screen out certain people with an affinity for single-malt......

  3. Look at you, Dad! So high tech! I'm pumped about your blog and proud to be your first follower. Keep up the good work!

  4. What can I say? Old dog, new tricks.....

  5. One of these days....when the fog of living in a home so full of estrogen thins a bit you won't need that rot gut to take the edge off. Nope...then you will be able to sit back and savor a REAL beverage...a well aged Single Malt Scotch. Ahhhhhhh.....mother's milk.

  6. The blog looks fabulous, Bob! The "girls" did a great job ;-)

    Look forward to coming here often to visit. All the best to you and your family in 2010!
