If you remember, over Christmas my younger son and I went to visit my Marine son at his combat training location. My husband stayed behind for work and to take care of the dogs.
Apparently, he was feeling silly on Christmas Eve and the poor pups were the victims. The photo above is what I received on my cell phone late 12/24. It also had an audio file attached with my husband doing his impersonation (which he does non-stop every Christmas) of the Santa in A Christmas Story: "Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!"
Yes, I know Christmas is over, but this photo was too cute not to share. I hope you agree.
The Marine is doing much better now that he's in from the cold. Loving his new "pad" (barracks) in Pensacola and making some friends. He has a "96" (96 hours of liberty) this coming holiday weekend and will have his first taste of off-base freedom. He's not coming home, and I think he's actually looking forward to being with the guys and not obligated to Mom. Hah! How dare him. LOL!
I hope this video will work (hey, it does!). It's a small, short cell phone video of his current digs. Nothing fancy here. ;-) But much better than boot camp and combat training!
