I haven't played since HS so we bought some tennis balls and racquets and have been playing for fun. It's something different to do.

well the girlfriend & i had a goldilocks & the 3 bears moment last nite. we get back to our motel after a wedding reception & see 2 cop cars out front. when we go in the lobby there's 2 cops talking to a man in swim trunks who looks really stressed out. not wanting to be spectators we head to our room. we open the door & turn on the light, & there's a 6 year old girl sleeping in our bed.

turns out the little girl was missing & the man in the swim trunks in the lobby was her dad. apparently she got tired of the pool & was going to go back to their room. we were in room 114 & her family was in room 214 right above us. she got confused & went to our room & for some reason her key card worked in our door & she crawled into bed & went to sleep, not realizing it's not her room.

her dad about broke into tears when we found her & kept thanking us. very bizarre ending to the night but it's not to often a missing kid story has a good ending

That's crazy, but I too am very glad to hear of the happy ending,, all to often we hear the sad and horrific, good to hear she's safe with her family again.. not even gonna question why a six year old can just wander off with a room key and nobody noticed,,,,

Happy ending.

Except I'd be damned nervous someone else's room key fit in my lock. I don't like the thought of that at all. I'm spending a weekend in a hotel room in September. Now I'm a little nervous.

Also, it could have not been a happy ending for that little girl if some "Bad Guy" was in that room.

Awhile ago I was at my friend's store and there was a wedding going on in the reception hall next door. as i was walking into the store I saw some flashing red lights off in the trees near the helicopter pad so I went to investigate. It was a little boy with those flashing shoes who had wandered off. I went and got him and brought him into the store where several frantic people had been looking for him. Had it not been for his flashing shoes he could have been in some serious trouble.

Thank God everything turned out OK.

old service buddy posted this on Facebook...

Camp Pendleton, CA*– While many in the military are familiar with current troop leading procedures, the Pentagon has proposed a change to streamline the steps and standardize mission planning across the force.The Army’s troop leading steps — represented by the acronym*RIMSRCIS,*and the Marines’ ‘BAMCIS’ are soon to be replaced by a new seven-step benchmark.Behind the change are the Intelligence Analysts with the Production & Analysis Company of 1st Intelligence Battalion. The Marines of P&A Co, or “PANDA” as they call themselves, have teamed up with their Army counterparts — and have worked together to improve mission plans throughout the military.Using a PowerPoint presentation that was sloppily constructed by one of his analysts, First Lieutenant Arnold Chartier unveiled the new procedures on Wednesday.“BAMCIS was nice, but it really left a lot of room for interpretation, and here in PANDA — that was a serious problem,” begins Chartier.Aiming his laser pointer at slide one, he continues, “Steps one and two are ‘Receive Mission’ and then ‘Issue Warning Order’. Simple enough. Then we get serious with step three and ‘Make Initial Plan’.”Chartier says they added this step because the plan always changes and is finalized later in the process.“Step four is ‘Juxtapose Best and Worst Case Scenarios’. We know most grunts can’t spell, let alone*pronounce*a word like juxtapose, but we feel it’s important to be prepared for possible problems that come up during a mission.”Moving ahead to the final slide, Chartier is excited to show the final three steps.“The final steps are ‘Organize Final Plan’, then of course ‘Begin The Mission’, and most importantly, ‘Supervise’ to ensure completion. It’s quite simple and we believe this will really help us conduct better missions.”Major Richard Wagner with Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, was pleasantly surprised by the change.“The entire planning process is much more understandable after introducing*RIMJOBS*to my Marines,” said Wagner. “Honestly, I think I might even take it home and see how my wife feels about*RIMJOBS. She’s fairly disorganized and could use a tool like this.”Specialist Shane Harrigan, an Army analyst working with the PANDA Marines, was opposed to the concept.“It just doesn’t feel natural to me. I can understand that the Marines are very enthusiastic about*RIMJOBS, but I don’t want any part of it. To be frank, it leaves a foul taste in my mouth just thinking about it.”The 7-steps are set to be disseminated throughout the Army and Marine Corps immediately.The Navy has also considering adopting*RIMJOBS*to replace their hundred-year old planning procedure of*BOHICA.*Print**PDFRead more:*http://www.duffelblog.com/2012/07/dod-unveils-new-troop-leading-steps-for-military-rimjobs-to-streamline-mission-planning/#ixzz21SjLdtfe*Follow us:*@theduffelblog on Twitter*|*duffelblog on Facebook
