    Had an awesome weekend with the family. Friday night, hubby and I had an overnight at the Marriott, including dinner and breakfast, thanks to a gift certificate from a friend. His sister stayed with the kids. Then Saturday morning, we all met up and took the ferry out to George's Island. Spent a beautiful day wandering thru Fort Warren, the old civil war fort there. Took the ferry back and wandered thru Faneuil Hall. Sunday, I took the kids to church while hubby worked. Then 2 kids went to friends' houses for a few hrs. When hubby got home, we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening at Hampton Beach. The weather was perfect and the water was surprisingly mild. Just a perfect weekend! :)

    I have a freezer half full of deer meat and just got a text that there's another one to go in there. Having a future son-in-law that likes to hunt is working out pretty well. One buck + one doe = lots of good food.

    This afternoon I successfully checked off my last calendared event from my schedule, thus bringing to a close my most unexpectedly successful, eventful and exciting break I've ever had. I've hit the ground running this 2015 and can't wait to see what else comes along

    ps It's been way too long since someone posted good any news in this thread, what's with that ;)

    Setting out from Laramie, WY towards Denver, CO and Fort Carson to see the kids cousin. (and maybe a Goose along the way?)
    Then East - Kansas weather is forecast as sunny and lower 60's.

    Oh - gas out here? $1.65 !

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    Best of luck to you. Drove my daughter back to school the same day. The weather was perfect and my backache made carrying stuff up 4 flights of stairs just an absolute joy! But, she's doing well, loving school and that makes me VERY happy.

    If you're looking to get goosed, I wish you all the power in the world! Plus Deval is exploring running for officer out there, so don't expect those great gas prices to last forever!

    Found Goose and the most adorable little gosling.
    Hit snow in PA and had to stay over... PA is worse than DCR in treating and clearing roads.

    Kiddo has a job lined up, no career but it's a check, starts tomorrow. Then he starts taking civil circus tests....

    Mr Scribbles Mr

    Went shooting with two of my boys. Scribs Jr had to fire familiarization course with his first pistol, and I wanted to toss some .556 downrange. Despite the cold, we were all smiles. I even got a compliment for my steel skills with the AR.
    Scribbles #2 son in Academy now, and # 3 sitting pretty with a 99 (he was the third shooter today). Can't wait for spring to do it again.:cool:

    I've been working with someone for quite some time on her genealogy. The problem was that she was adopted and the records are sealed. A couple months ago, I got a strong gut feeling that one of the families I was looking at had to be her family. After hours and hours and hours (ok it was weeks) of analyzing DNA matches, scouring obituaries, searching FaceBook, etc. I confirmed that we had found her birth family. Now here is the good thing: she reached out to one of the people on FaceBook (who looks a lot like her) and the person was receptive. I'm happy beyond words right now.

    Just found out that the guy who backed into my car admitted to the insurance company that he was backing up and I was stopped. I was really sweating that one knowing that he could have just as easily said I hit him and then it would be on me to fight it. Really thought I had a better shot of seeing video of Big Foot taking the Loch Ness Monster out to dinner.

    In honor of my mother who passed away in January and my dad who passed away on St. Patrick's day, 61 days after her of a broken heart after 62 years of marriage, I volunteered for meals on wheels and delivered 14 meals to the elderly folks in my neighborhood. I had some great interactions with a few of them and already scheduled another date to go deliver. Today was truly a good day for me

    Today I realized that Massachusetts finally grew a set!
    Ball one dropped last year when my conservative vote finally counted in the gubernatorial election and ball two dropped today for justice. Keep it up, MA! You might grow some chest hairs soon.;)

    Today I officially completed my sophomore year of college and watched as my two best friends of the last two years commission as 2nd LTs in the Army. Lots of good things coming up for me this summer, including an awesome LE internship.

    And finally, I have piece of mind with the penalty decision today.

    Overall a good, yet bittersweet, day
