After losing my job and house due to the economic downturn in 2011/12, reinventing myself by going back to film school and working in the entertainment industry, it looks like me and the missus will be getting a house again. We close on it Tuesday. In addition, I turned 60 this month which means my retirement $ will finally come through from my military service. God is truly good.

Bless your heart for hanging in there, the snowflakes could learn much from your attitude!

Why would you say that to someone in the South?

The most Southern 'fuck you' there is. Can be put at the end of a phrase to nullify any cruelty.

That girl is the most fowl mouthed, idiotic, bitch there is, bless her heart.

Oh you need to actually look this up? Bless your heart.

Not to split hairs here Joker but my bless your heart was at the beginning of my comment. This is all news to me, I still use the term Oriental sometimes. Always an education to be had here.

Son Graduates

Son called from Pineland yesterday. It was a brief conversation -- he was borrowing a phone from a guerrilla/cadet. He passed Robin Sage and is now a certified 18D. He will receive his tab and beret next month. Thanks for putting up with my questions. I still wish there were dad bleachers like football at Mackall or in Pineland.

Now I fear they will expect him to apply all the stuff he's learned over the past couple of years. It all just got very real.

Not yet, but it will. But remember, that is what he strives (present tense, it is his blood now) for, the Brotherhood.

Congratulations.
