Billy graduated Captain's School!
That's pretty hot news!
And got his marching orders!
Two years in South Korea.
|My nephew Billy and his wife, Crystal.|
Other hot stuff!
Departure date was set for June 2 from the Big D.
We had been looking forward to them spending their last weekend
in the states with us,
How special is that?
(but of course, not looking forward to their leaving.)
But, first things first. Their beloved black Lab was going, too.
Pancake was set to ship out at 5 a.m. Sunday morning!
My brother, Phil, and Billy were up at 3 to see him off.
What wasn't so hot?
Pancake missed his flight.
More "not hot" stuff:
A leak in the upstairs guest bathroom! Nice timing.
A little inconvenient with four guests, but they are real troopers.
Jay and Phil gave it their best, but a plumber is going to be needed for this one.
What was hot:
Mexican food at Cristina's!
(Why I failed to take pictures of all the events going on, I don't know.)
What was not hot:
Mid-afternoon just prior to taking Pancake to the airport,
he's out in the back yard puking. Poor Pancake not feeling so hot!
After finally seeing Pancake off, and attending to other last minute business,
Billy and Crystal's choice of fun for their last evening stateside was
to see the "hot" movie X-Men!
And finally, what was really hot:
|This Mama-to-be rocked it!!!!|
|My brother Phil|
|My swinger, Dear Heart|
|Me with Crystal and Susan, my sis-in-law|
|Dear Heart did very well for himself|
|They were supposed to be trying for that tiresome duck lips thing!|
|Checking out scores|
After a really big day, Billy's last request was for an In 'n Out Burger.
Burgers at 10 p.m., and then up at 2:00 a.m. this morning to head for the airport.
What wasn't hot?
It all ended too quickly.
|Good-byes at DFW weren't easy|
|So long for now ... not good-bye.|
Two years seems too long.
But I know they will be back before you know it.
A baby to look forward to. New friends, New assignments. New adventures.
May God bless and keep you all three in your journey.
"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed,
