"See Spot run ..." etc.

I thought we had emptied the humorous content of that expression already, in post #98 and further on? (http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=2354835)

I'm so confused

So, last night me, mem-sahib and DU were all laying on our bed reading books.

Memsahib: This is nice, we should do this more often.
Me: We should all read a chapter from our books out loud for the others to hear.
Memsahib: Yours would be "This was the most important ship of its time and had 12 guns.
Me: Yours would be "My momma made me live in a tin can and eat frogs"
Memsahib: Hers would be "His skin was sparkling, their eyes met..."
Me: "... and then nothing happened"

At this point the 14 yo SU walked in..

Me: And his would be "See Spot. See Spot run. Run Spot Run."

The DU was still giggling 5 minutes later.



Hehe. Making fun of one's family is good for endless hours of entertainment. Of course, don't let anyone else try it.

Even at 14, the SU would have no trouble passing the high school exit exams in the LA Unified School District.

Formosa starts to crumble. The airfields at Taichu and Kagi are undamaged but likely don't have aviation support as they have been unused. 75 dive bombers at Karenko along with F6F's and F4F's all flagged under Thirteenth Fighter Command will mean a bad day for WJD ships that come within range. Range is now maxed out because the CAP is gone at Takao.

**************May 31, 1943(c)***********

Japan sorties her carriers. Soryu and a CVL appear out of the mist, 100 mi S out Horycrappo-jima. Meanwhile, 2 CA's are spotted passing through the channel between Formosa and Iriomote.

We have a cruiser force at Horycrappo-jima, San Francisco, Wichita (with Radioman 1st Class Campbell aboard), Juneau and 4 DD's at Crappo. We have 3 CL's and 5 DD's at Karenko. Somehow, the inscrutaburh Japanese get this far without being spotted.

First up. Unescorted Helens from Okinawa attack Horycrappo-jima without escort. They get murderized. Next up a Marine aviation attack from Batan Is. USMC SBD's and some snazzy Corsairs attack the carriers at 280 miles range. There was a USN TBF squadron assigned to the same HQ but they did not bother to get out of bed. It isn't enough of an escort. Too bad. There were 70 P-40K's and 13 P-38's with the same HQ that might have gone along if the staff had thought to give them drop tanks. Dumb asses. Most of the SBD's that get through attack a DD. At least they got our of their bunks.

Next up USN SBD-5's at 200 mi range from Karenko. You never get the kind of coordination form a land base (even with a good Air HQ) you get from carrier attacks. 2/3rd's of the dive bombers are getting their oil checked or something. Nice escort, though. No, NO. NO! The BIG ONE! ATTACK THE BIG ONE! Secondary exprosion seen on Ryuho. Still, not very impressive. This was our chance to take out Soryu.

The carriers go after Ching Lee at Karenko. Our CAP is week because the P-47's are sweeping over a base with no fighters. I blame the staff.

No afternoon attacks by either side. You have to say we lost that exchange and JJ had MUCH more to lose potentially.

USN: 3 CL's damaged. At least 2 will need yard time most likely.

IJN: Takao hit pretty badly. Ryujo, non-fatal hit.

If they are smart, they will retire next turn. This wasn't a golden opportunity for us..it was platinum opportunity with rare yellow diamond encrusted crap. They sail right into a hornet's nest of dive bombers on the first turn they are posted to Karenko and they do more damage than we do.

Meanwhile, over Formosa, the rubble is reorganized at Takao airfield and Kagi airfield gets absolutely pulverized by B-25's. Tomorrow we hit Taichu and Taihoku. Recon flights over Okinawa today. That should cause some alarm. In fact, they might have thought the CA's at Horcrappo-jima were the first step in an Okinawa landing.

So I get tasked to picked up 8 year old SG IV from school last week. I'm not expected to be doing that normally.

I show up.

SG IV: Oh! Hi!

SG IV's 8 year old girlfriend: Oh, is that your grandfather?

SG IV: <immediately realizing implications> Uhh, no. But I WISH he was!

Pretty good recovery for an 8 year old. I was more amused than anything but I did surreptitiously step on the other kid's lunch.

One of the CL's at Karenko has 45% flotation damage but the other isn't bad at all. The third is unscathed. The combat report was a bit hyperbolic.

Nothing happened...nothing...well almost.

We raid Naha harbor..they fool us...they no show up.

Soryu and the CVL prudentry run away.

They bomb one of our taffys at Horcrappo-jima with unescorted Vals from Okinawa...we shoot them down.

We bomb Kagi and Taihoku and Crark...that kind of stuff.
