    Hello -Konnichiwa (Kon-ee-chee-wa)

    Seems the Shipyard has the need for my presence in Japan, I leave Monday the 11th of August. I will be packed into a wide body airplane with some 400 passengers sharing an arm rest and just hoping dial soap or Zest (feel Zestfully Clean) has been used by all. My return is to be Sept 30th but then again I do work for the Government so subject to change. Donna leaves again for a week on the 7th of August …

    So with that in mind…

    The JO Ball is in October 10 thru 12th, with the main entertainment being on the 11th. This year's theme will be "THE RED CARPET” (a night at the Oscars). Yes, this like all Junior Officer Balls will be a dressy affair or a costume event, so start thinking of a Hollywood character you would like to arrive walking on "The RED CARPET" as. There will be a sign up sheet posted so sign up and rub elbows with some of the biggest and best stars of BYC. If you would like to help on the committee, show off your talent, sing ,dance or tell jokes and would like to perform on stage or have any questions please call Donna or the R/C John Rosendale.

    Points to Ponder: What the wife needs to know:

  • Sunday= Sports, it's like a full moon or tide change, live with it
  • Shopping is not a sport, and no we will never think of it that way
  • Yes and No are perfectly good answers to every question
  • When ever possible , please say whatever you have to say during commercials
  • Anything said 6 months ago is null and void in fact all comments become null and void after 6 days
  • Most guys own three pairs of shoes tops!! What makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of 30 would look good with that dress?
  • Do not ask us what we are thinking unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as: naval lint, the shotgun formation, full court press or NASCAR
  • Birthday, Valentines, anniversaries are not quests to see if we can yet again find the perfect gift
  • And lastly…If it itches ,it will be scratched.. We do that

    Thanks for Reading
