“Caint Get It Outta My Heart Nor My Head—I Miss MY NAVY! My Active-Duty-Navy. Woe-is-Me. Sorry Kids. Not Searchin’ For Pity–Just Validation.

Had to Re-Post This—

Expanded A Bit.

I’m Trying Real Hard to force it Down,

Y’all Know…Water–For The Salvation of My Liver

(And Some Other Crucial Bodily Organs)

Problem is–Water is Nasty

I Have a Hard Time Forcing It Down

It Is Nasty


What W.C. Fields said About Water:

“I Never Drink Water–Fish Fuck In It”

My Role-Model & Hero:

I’ve loved my life!

Cockeyed Optimist

Mitzi Gaynor

Never Worry!

“Worry” is the most useless waste of human emotions

A waste of time and energy!

Late entry/addition which no one will see. I drop it anyway. just a fond memory:

When I was in Navy SEAL training, late Eighties, we had, everyday, to run around with IBS on our head (IBS: Inflatable-Boat-Small).

This is part of a song we made up:

“Oh IBS! Stuck To My Head I Guess!”

The Instructors Often Filled Them With Sand.

Just For The Added Fun

Rock Portage

So Much Fun!

I loved My Times Two Navy SEAL

Training Experience (’86 & ’88)


Best of BUD/s Instructor Patstone


One day, one morning, my class mustered and went to retrieve our assigned IBS’s. Someone in another boat crew was laughing manically.

WTF? I pondered.

I walked over to the boat crew.

“What is so goddamn funny?” I asked.

“Lookit this shit” one said.

I looked at their IBS.

One of the SEAL instructors had spray-painted on all the IBS’s

“Don’t worry; Be Happy.”

I had to laugh.’

I did still manage to maintain my sense of humor, even though I knew I was probably gonna die that day…. Damn! I miss those days. And all the ‘good’ times! Yeah. Believe what you’ve heard/read: SEAL training is BRUTAL. But ya gotta keep a sense of humor about you. Or at least in your pocket.


I love Barb in Her Sailor Suit!!
