I was talking to my oldest son about this whole VA fiasco today. He had some very good advice for me. Matthew is a helicopter pilot in the Army and an amazing young fellow, even if I do say so myself. Our second son, John, is a helicopter pilot in the Navy, and also quite the dude. The interesting thing about GI Joe and Popeye is this; they were not allowed to have toy guns or play war as children. I had this crazy idea that if I raised them to be pacifists, they would be better human beings. Jokes on me because these two military men are as decent and good and kind as they come.
Well, they are as decent and good and kind as they come, unless they are playing practical jokes on one another. Like finding a picture on my laptop, doctoring it and then sending it out to the entire family. Boys are weird and they never change. Men are just hairy boys and they are still weird. See for yourself.
Oh well. I guess I will just have to remember them when they were sweet and little and I could control them better. I was the one to say what they ate, who they played with and even what they wore.
Yes, boys, mess with mommy’s laptop again and there are plenty more pictures I am willing to share with the world. Remember bath time?
