    Not a chance - I tried to get him to take me up to Tampa to see that Victory ship when I am down there at the end of the month since it is not like I get to FL everyday...nope. *sigh*

    He did want to go up in Novemeber when it goes on cruise again...I may have talked him into waiting until January or March when I can come back down and going together. But the way you two have been talking, if you guys want to go on the cruise together-don't let me stop you.

    Shyt yeah! Not much to see really. I guess the Edison/Ford thing...though I've been here for 7 years and havent bothered. Mostly we go to various establishments to consume alcoholic beverages, laugh, joke, tell stories, and end up in the parking lot...with the girls flashing passers-by

    Well, all but the last part usually

    And yes, I will be waiting for my THL before I take the Victory ship cruise.
    Guys, make all the PW comments you want, frankly I don't give a flying fcuk.

    Currently I'm reading Jarhead by Anthony Swofford. Next I'm going to proably pick up John McCain's memoir Faith of My Fathers and eventually I'm going to get One Bullet Away by Nathanial Fick.

    I'm currently reading Prey, by Michael Crichton. Those of you who are into science fiction and/or engineering/computer science will probably like this book.

    I have that book at my house, probably given to me by one person or another. I never got around to reading it.

    I'm only about 100 pages in but all he does is complain about how much he hates the military and the Marines in particular. Some of his complaints do sound valid but overall I think the author has an very poor attitude.

    I'm reading ' Yes, Prime Minister ' by Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay.

    I'd watched the show on TV when I was 14. I couldn't comprehend most of that show. The book's really hilarious !

    Re-reading "Angel in the Whirlwind" by Benson Bobrick.
