Most of the sturm und drang was at Legaspi but stay tuned.

Port Blair has 12 bombers but no fighters. We already know Rangoon has quite a few LYB pranes.

Also, Port Blair may have mines or even CD guns.


ALSP...I'm at work all day..feel free to do your part if the cleaning lady didn't unplug the server or something.

**************PI Pranning****************

Legaspi: 50 men of Cebu USN got ashore, avaition support guys. 1st USMC Tank Bn. lost every single one of its tanks and half-tracks. It now consists of 500 men, 30 trucks and the Bn Interpretive Dance Troop. Legaspi is not mined, unless you count the ones inside the hull of Keokuk in about 400 ft of water 3 miles south of the "landing beach". There are 8 Jerry cans full of aviation gas and 50 rounds of .50 cal. It's a regualr bastion, I tell you, a bastion!

I am sending in a couple of amphibious loaded AK's and some APD's and PT boats.

No troops going in this time (other than a few avaition support via APD). I'm worried that any DD's or larger will get plasterized by the Bettys if they stay after daylight. What I really need to do is make 100% sure there are not any uninteded taffys heading for Legaspi.

Maybe a DD group set to "retire" and based on Mindanao would bug out by daylight??

Somehow, without a vote and with no prior knowledge on my part, it was declared "National Cleavage Day" at the office. This, when combined with a decidely non-random association of good looking moms ("GLM's"), is really testing my focus.

Some of these get-ups, if they were worn at the Oscars, they would tell the woman to go home and get something more appropriate.

I usually stand up when using the computer to input patient data but today I have reverted to sitting on a stool about 12 inches off the ground. Even there it seems like there is intentional leaning forward going on. It seems like some kind of sting operation. No kidding.

I couldn't get the turn out this AM, only had about 20 minutes to work on it and it wasn't enough. Because there are big simultaneous operations going on I really tried. I had to babysit last night so i couldnt do it then either. I tried to get the girls to watch "Greatest Dogfights" but they wouldn't go for it so we settled on more educational fare, Navajo Cops. Those guys and gals take WAAAY more chances than an urban cop would take because they ususally operate alone without back-up. We had a great inter-genrational laugh when an older, edentulous Navajo tried to run over his neighbor with a tractor. Then I had to go to sleep.

I'm just glad that your shift wasn't longer than four hours, lest you have to call YOUR physician. I wonder if those anti-priapism treatments can be done 'holisticly'. A few molecules of cleavage (maybe a pixel or two from a racy photo) should cure what ails 'ya, Cap'n.

Too bad it's too early for baseball season, dude. I guess you could mentally review last seasons' Angels pitching ERAs. Probably not a good idea-you'd just start getting angry.

So at a place I worked there was a program started as part a quality & teamwork type initiative called Random Act of Kindness, aka RAK, pronounced "rack". The team using that tactic would choose a person and assist them with some task or other.

So one day three very nice looking and, uh, well endowed ladies - all of whom reported to me - walked into my office with barely concealed smirks on their faces and announced in unison "You're being racked!"

Never in my life has it been so hard to keep a straight face.

I can only hope that the task that you selected for their assistance involved a lot of stooping and bending.

ETA: I don't suppose you could have told them you REALLY needed help jumping on a trampoline-could they please do that for you?
