Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and my Grandpa, and especially to Ryan, world’s best Daddy to our son!!!!! I love all of you guys and I miss you bunches.
I got to sleep in this morning!!!! That sure was nice. Of course, by doing that, I didn’t get breakfast but that’s ok. I did some computer stuff and I stitched for an hour and a half! Then I got dressed and headed to a nice leisurely lunch and then to the band hall for 1300 formation. I did some e-mails and stuff after formation, and made a quick trip to the PX to buy a toothbrush and toothpaste to keep in my office. I got a toothbrush travel case as well. Then we had a short BQ rehearsal for tomorrow’s ceremony and that was pretty much it. I went to the call center and called Mom and Dad to wish Dad a Happy Father’s Day, and to chat for a few minutes before they went to church. And I did my weekly weapon maintainence and cleaning. It was a very good afternoon.
Then I headed to the chapel via Green Beans and the chaplains’ office. Our (Joyful Noez) bass player is a Chaplain’s Assistant and he had duty this evening and wouldn’t be at the service and he had e-mailed me and asked me if I’d stop by Green Beans and bring him some coffee on my way to the chapel. So I did and he really appreciated it. Then it was off to the chapel for warm-ups/rehearsal and then the service. The service went really well as always – had a Navy Chaplain give the message tonight. There are I think 3 chaplains that rotate giving the message, so that’s nice. Each Sunday there are getting to be more and more people at the service, so that’s a great thing! After the service and we had torn down the band stuff, we headed to the chow hall for dinner and then to Green Beans to hang out after. I stopped by the band hall to call Ryan and Robbie, and when I finally got through (20+ minutes of trying) they weren’t home so I left a message. Each week one member buys drinks for everyone. LD bought tonight – he’s the guy that usually walks me home because he lives in a neighboring LSA. He’s been gone on missions for the past couple of weeks, so it was nice having him back tonight. We played Uno, but I only had time for one hand as I had to get back to find out what time formation is for me tomorrow. It’s early, so I’m off to bed.
No pictures again tonight – the internet is just being too slow. Hopefully soon. . .
