Just got home from doing a funeral in Alabama. Man that was a drive, but when the family comes up to you and says "thanks", it'* worth it.

Hope it all goes well. I've have leg/knee problems I just ended up learning to deal with. Ask the Docs if you will be able to play the piano afterwards.......

I would love to "just deal with it", because that'* the easiest thing to do. Only problem is I do A LOT of work with my hands. Lifting, twisting, pulling...all that jazz. So I do nothing but make it worse. The problem originated because I broke my wrist in a motorcycle accident in July of 05 and it didn't get fixed until Jan of 07. Now almost 3 years later it'* starting to act up. So they are gonna try to take the screw out that they put in.

I'm in the base Honor Guard at Eglin AFB, FL. One of our duties is to perform Military funerals. We're the ones who carry the casket, fold the flag, shoot the rifles, and play the bugle.

I figured that. I'm the Commander of my Fire Department Honor Guard. We do the same...with the exception of firing the rifle and playing the bugle. It'* a pleasure to serve! It'* my honor to make your acquaintance and I commend you for your patronage and remembrance to those that have fallen.

While I thank you for thanking me, it'* really just a job. It'* an honor, but you know what I mean.

Now, on topic. I got home from work an took a 3 hour nap

When I woke up this morning I find that my wife had not only made my lunch for me, but also packed it for me too. On top of that I had snacks already in there with a big bottle of Kool-Aid.

Mmmmmm, tuna salad!
