I am a big fan of the site. I appreciate all of the visits to my Dad's virtual grave, CTOCS Roger W Leigh, USN, Retired, who passed away in 2007. A special thank you with heartfelt appreciation to Julie for sponsoring his site. Thanks so much Julie, and God bless all.
Gary You mentioned before you weren't in a very safe place. Please be alright, and careful. This world is so unstable, and forgive me for saying, but this Pres. has really done damage to our country, imho. Then it could be prophecy. I think of you a lot, more than I should, but you've grown on me over time. Let me know you're safe. I guess you're not in CA anymore, or should I say Kansas Toto. Your Jules♡
HAPPY NEW YEAR TRAPPER!!! I'm glad the trip went safe and I know your troops were thrilled to see you! I'm beginning to think I'm living vicariously through you and these trips of yours. This has been a very eye-opening year and not so much in a good way. We need prayers to continually go up for the new one ahead. If each one of us would help another fellow human being or animal in need, the world would be a much brighter place. It would make all the difference and fill the air with hope. Stay safe New Year's Gary, and I'll be chatting with you next year. Yours, Julie :)
P.S. question I just left my belated Veteran's on your dad's page. Is Patty Valentino a relative? None of my beeswax, but she hardly misses a day leaving a flower/token. :) And, you don't have to answer this, it's all good. Julie
RE: HEY! Alrighty Commodore Trapper! :) Still slipping on Facebook, still slipping on my feet. Just pulled a double shift and now soaking my feet as the house is thankfully quiet. Four births and none of them easy and quick. Alas, all healthy and loud though. :) Are you in southern-Cal yet?
RE: HEY! Back on land I see in Maryland :) I have a good friend from the Baltimore area that lives now in Cleveland, TN. BUT, she and her husband have divorced sadly, so she is going back north to Magnolia, Delaware where her parents are, and then eventually she will head back to the Baltimore area where she was originally from. Congratulations on your new location and title! CA where the weather is beautiful and life is easy. I can see why you are excited about that and your position. I didn't know they still used a rank of "Commodore" in the U.S. Navy. Does it apply to Captain with certain criteria? Sorry, I'm a little rusty on our military positions Gary, please forgive me. :)
I know I'm a faceless Facebookie. Just never do much on the page since I set it up. No pictures, nothing practically. I will try to find yours!
RE: HEY! Hey Gary! I've been running around dizzy since Halloween. If not working at the hospital, then working outside of it. :) Are you still floating the boats in the high seas? Sorry about Facebook, I'm so seldom on there. You're not the only one that keeps reminding me of that. I hope you're going to be able to be with family over Christmas. I just seen your dad had a birthday on the 12th. I'm sure you miss him. The holiday season is never quite the same when loved ones start going Home. I'm so thankful the Lord put a memory chip in our heads and hearts when he designed us. Merry Christmas Trapper and to a safe and fun New Year's Eve! Can you believe it's almost 2014?
