Wearing my brothers sailor uniform (USS Orion) back in ‘74. I make a good looking squid, don’t I? O.K. don’t answer that! I love ships, as you will tell scrolling through the pages, not so much being in the military. I have nothing against the military per-say, I just don’t like the idea of being brain washed into thinking that killing people is a good thing. Don’t get me wrong, some people need killing, I’d just rather not be the one doing it. I became adverse to the deed as a child when my father forced me to drown a baby bunny between two buckets of water that the cat had gutted but didn’t kill. To this day I can hear that poor thing scratching to get free , talk about scared for life. However, knowing that I am able to kill another living being will empower me if the need to do so in defense of myself or husband should ever occur. I just hope that the need never occurs. I’m sorry poor baby bunny, I much rather would have stitched you back up to hop another day than what I was forced to do. Well, this caption sure took a turn from where it was originally headed!
