Donna got to sleep in and I got up early and had my coffee.
Today is Armed Forces Day here in the States, as most of you know I am a US Navy Veteran of the Viet Nam Era, I served as a Rescue Air Crewman/ Rescue Swimmer in Helicopter Combat Squadron 2. I am always embarrassed today when someone thanks me for my service, believe me nobody did when we got home from service during my time. Plus I considered it a great time in my life, more fun and adventure than you deserved. Most fun you could have at that age without a girl involved. So please take a minute and think of the relatives you have and friends who have served their country with pride and honor and didn’t ask anything in return. I salute all my blogger friends out there that have served their country in the Armed Forces.

Yep that’s the air station we’ve been looking for. Only way you can get this shot is from a Naval Aircraft.
Oh before I forget tomorrow the 19th of May will be Donna & my 34th anniversary, when your married that long it seems like your whole life has just rushed by because it was so much fun, Even now with a couple ailments. Donna will still hit the dance floor and have fun. We have decided to wait until we are in Florida with our good friends Paul & Helen, and then celebrate it then, Always better with either family or good friends around. so the rest of you that haven’t been married that long we’ll let you catch up, and the ones longer were right on your heals, start looking over your shoulders.
Today I had the truck washed inside and out, and then topped it off with fuel, tomorrow I will hitch up and turn it around so it is facing north out toward the driveway.
With Dona off work we don’t need it Monday.
Packed my clothes today and Donna said she will pack hers tomorrow, then we are ready, all the food including perishables are loaded, were ready to set the special sea & anchor detail and get underway.
That’s about it for today, be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
