    Graduation

    The Pvt. graduates from Boot Camp today. Completed the break in period with flying colors. Impressed the Sr. Drill Instructor (me), and the Company Commander (wife) so much that he made Company Honorbike. And with that meritoriously promoted to Lance Corporal. We couldn't be happier, or more proud of the lil' bucker.

    Way to go, LCpl. Rex T. Dubber!
    "Rex" is a great old name you just don't hear anymore...

    My wife loves the name Rex. I want to name my son Rex Gordon, after my two grand fathers. It just sounds cool, like a quarterback or a Marvel super hero. I told her she could name our daughter as long as her middle name is Leia. She said, "Leia huh? So what's her first name supposed to be?" "Princess." I naturally blurted out.
    I'll be 44 in 2 weeks so I best get busy on the baby makin' before I start shootin' dust.
