Cutting trees in my woods, trying to occupy time as best as possible before heading to WPS course next month.

My dad and step-mom came to visit. She surprised me with not one but two hand crocheted blankets.

And I am waiting on the UPS guy again. I ordered 6 pieces of Le Creuset cast iron cookware with 9QT. French Oven. Yes, I am a snob, money well spent IMO.

Taking a break from packing the ruck. Sitting on the futon listening to Penguin Cafe's new album "The Red Book", with both my dogs curled up on each side of me.

^^^ Along those lines, watching Corso put on the mascot's head. Cracks me up.

Performing CPR on a lady at the pool. Watching the Paramedics arrive and realize that they knew their shit and were amazingly professional. Listening to the lady bitch about being completely fine after the paramedics had to intubate her because she wasn't breathing and had turned blue.

Props to EMT personnel who deal with ungrateful people at their worst every day.

Coming across a great song that has been grossly overplayed in the past but since then got forgotten... and rocking it five times in a row. Sorry, neighbors!

That ridiculously delicious feeling of complete weightlessness the first 20 or so steps you take after dropping a heavy ruck,
having spent the previous dozen or so miles sweating profusely under it's yoke.

A small pleasure.

A visit to the cardio doc with no complications other than the usual acknowledgement that I have an a-fib:

BPM: 56
BP: 121/79

And in the words of the tech (a former 13F, two tours in Iraq), "looks like you're keeping calm and driving on."

To piggyback Justaclerk's post above -- sitting in a Starbucks, doing a casual check of my resting BPM, and it being 56 -- not less than my age, but not too horribly bad....

The trim in the Phoenix airport in general, all the better waiting in the terminal to head to Ontario (the California one)
Roughly a 73% chance one or more passengers on this flight are headed to a porn set.

On a related note: yoga pants in weather that simply doesn't call for yoga pants

Sky Harbor has a LOT of college kids coming and going, 80,000 to ASU alone, I see a LOT of old, fat people there doing the same thing during "Snow Bird" season - wouldn't read too much into it...

A long, slow, DZ piss after a night jump.

Having a grandchild jump into your lap and ask, "What did you really like to do in the Army?" and the first thing entering your mind is a long, slow, DZ piss after a night jump...

"Oh, there were a lot of things I liked to do in the Army, like jumping out of airplanes..."

The Master never shares all of his knowledge with the Apprentice.

Reminds me of that old question that always rolled around in my mind;
Why did I need to pee EVERY time I climbed into an aircraft for a jump?
