The One. The Proud.

Be proud of me if you want. I am.
(1) I came to the RBF tonight before succumbing to my baseball addiction; and (2) I went for a run this evening, just two days after my last run. Now that's commitment all over again.
What I am most proud about is my left side. No twinges, no aches, no pains, nothing to bother me. Still a little tight in general but definitely feeling more normal. It's like, ya know, that slight discomfort you have at the end of an injury just before you forget that you were hurting. That's a good place.
Not much more to report. Son T comes home this Friday with five fellow cadets from West Point. Thank goodness he has a high school friend who has her parents house to herself. She can put them up; maybe even entertain them. What would you do if you were 22 and had three to four prior service Army cadets on spring break coming over? one of them a Purple Heart recipient? That's what I thought.
Pass the salt and lemon.

If I were a 22 year old girl I would be pretty reluctant to play hostes to 4 men who had been living in an all male environment - too much unbridled testosteron in one place for me. No - I would call up my friend's Dad and ask if we could switch places. I would, however let them take me out for a nice meal to thank me for giving them the house.

Congrats to your son, David. My oldest son (also named David) just got word his unit is likely headed back to Iraq in the fall. His second tour there. My youngest son is applying to ROTC.

These young men are giving something terrific. We should thank them, deeply.

I suspect those young men are gentlemen so I would think they'd be safe to have around.

I didn't mean they aren't safe. I just meant that that is too much of a good thing all at once ;-)

No really - all that testoserone in one place. I just couldn't do it full although hanging out would be fine.

Um, 21st, I think you just got addled at the sight of all those gentlemen and their lovely physiques! (And anon, she didn't mean they weren't SAFE. She meant, it might be a little hard to resist them. get it???) It's ok, I totally understand...and David, I need to tell you something...I WANT me one of them boy toys! Those are some fine looking young men!

Fine-looking lads. And being at West Point wipes out one's tendencies towards mess, no?! Maybe they're the type to wash up their own dishes and take out the garbage without being asked. Or maybe I could just be dreaming ....
