Going through the line

May 25th, 2011

There I was, hungry and not sure what I wanted to eat. Left over salad has started to pale after munching on some every day since Saturday. Perhaps some gazpacho? I certainly did not feel like cooking anything after a day ping-ponging between the studio, the bedroom and the office in an effort to bring a bit more order to chaos.

There is progress. Things are being moved from one room to another. Thanks to the good efforts of the Mole, two bookcases came up from the garage and some really ugly cabinets went down. I am steadily working my way through more boxes, emptying six more today locating several items I thought were missing and five very nice (but small) shetland fleeces.

Back to the food. I am grumping around thinking – the DFAC was just so easy. Walk in, scan my card, take a tray and pick up food. No muss, no fuss, no cooking or clean up.

The Mole looked at me. Why would you want to be deployed? You can accomplish the same thing on a cruise ship and have much better food…..

and real silverware and dishes…..

I am back on line looking for my next adventure!

    Except that I get seasick I would say “pack me in your suitcase”! Let’s know when you have decided on a trip and we will all virtually join you!
    You have been warned! J

    The Mole is a sensible young man!

    Hilarious that you miss the military dining experience. Although there is something to be said for the “no clean-up” part.

    he Mole is growing into a wise young man, and you can tell him I said so– sometime when it doesn’t undercut your “authority”, as if….

    You realise that your emails could be turned into a book….. You are so
    very entertaining with these little insights into your humour….
    Especially as cruising is better than making some soup!! I must say the
    kid is very smart (look who she’s got for a mother) in providing you
    with another excuse to surf the waves!! I look forward to interest to
    which ship you board next and where it will be docking.
