Re: My Job, My Hell...

Wait, someone out there still drives a Yugo ? :shock: I always figured every one of those cars ended up in the scrapyards or as target practice for bored country boys. At least two that I have personally seen, one in the larger town up the road from me, a young kid drives it as a daily driver and t...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well I was going to try to get the last story out, although it was not really a job story. But Lil just told me we are leaving for Theodore, Alabama via I-10 tomorrow. So I am back to being a chauffeur, the good part is that it is only Lil and I and of course there are plenty of gun stores and pawn...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Funny thing or sad depending on your view point is I think I've hit every one of the biggies except hanging, electrocution, drug induced or alcohol induced and plane crash, probably a few more in there that I have overlooked. I somehow managed to hit vehicle crash (multiple times), helicopter crash...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Now TAG was nothing special just another NCO that was trying to make rank. Like I said his name was Corporal Terrance A. Galloway and he was a monumental pain in whatever body part you have that hurts the worst. He had made Corporal while in Vietnam and had sort of stalled there while other people w...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

That LT needed to be smacked upside the head. And maybe sent out to look for a non-existent sniper to get him out of your hair. He hardly ever left the FOB, and never on patrol. He was a typical Ring Knocker basically an arrogant son of a diseased camel. Now the Captain was a Mustang Officer and ha...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well we were doing time in what would one day (I believe it was sometime in the late 80's, this zone or region was created by an act of the Philippine Congress, which I believe was eventually ruled unconstitutional. I'm leaning towards 1988 or 1989) become the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao or...

Okay, I want to apologize for not get back on when I returned from my vacation trip. First choice - James and his wife Susan, as well as Lil and myself with Dube and his wife Young-Hee. Four of us started off in the PI, while Dobe and Young-Hee went straight to Korea to wait for us. Now let's just s...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Whenever we captured one, for some odd reason they found it highly disrespectful for us to burst out laughing.........when they proudly claimed allegiance with MILFs................. I'm pretty certain there are a lot of guys who claim allegiance with MILFs. http://www.joeydevilla.com/wordpress/wp-...

Lil and I are heading out of town for awhile to visit one of her sisters. It may be awhile say sometime around or after the 10th of November, but I wondered if there is anyone interested in the story of Jackson? Sir, I am always interested in your stories. You're quite an entertaining individual. S...

Well in regards to the poo in the tub, according to Lil's Mother it is my fault. Now I am not sure how it became my fault that she is washing her bum in the shower, when the Grandkids were the ones that took the Tabo and bucket out of the bathroom. What is a Tabo you ask? It is a fairly large ladle ...
