Hello all from another Iowan

Recommended Posts

LOL! :) I'm makin my way out there to meet him someday! He's a great guy and a great Dad. So when I get into matching shots of tequila with him....I'll ask. :P (he hasn't a chance, I'm a 10 year veteran US navy sailor)

You'll have a tough time, Iowans are like the Irish without all the green ;)  LOL

 

I knew a few sailors in my time.  My father in law was a sailor so we go at it once in a while, lots of fun.  One of the things I miss most is the inter service rivalry.  Good times good times.

 

I'll throw one back with you too (we'll call it the "two Watson handicap" LOL),  if you make it to this neck of the woods.

It's a Rune I made when I was in high school.  Dug it out of a box of stuff about 8 months ago going through old boxes in the storage shed.  (Talk about a blast from the past  :dj:),  Worked it up into a Photoshop image. 

 

I merged the Uruz and Kenaz runes into a single rune.  It stands for "Courage through Inner Strength".

Good thing we cleared that up! I thought it was a deco art rendition of the AFLAC duck "quacking"...... :P

I had healthy interest in Norse mythology and history when I was young.  Hadn't thought about it in years until I befriended a real live Norseman. Got me interested again.    I know, boring answer, LOL

Welcome to Wild Survive, Docwatmo!  It's so good to finally meet you after hearing all the stories your brother has told us about you.  :whistle:

His stories are pretty tame,  I was always "Nice" to him (Except when I hit him with a block of wood, or a golf club, all on accident you know).  He's the one  trying to get me killed at ever turn.  LOL  (Except that time as kids when I tried to get him to jump out a 2nd story window with trash bag parachute).  But that was just making up for some of his.  ;)  I'm loving the site, LOTS of great primitive skill info in one place.

OMG...you and Razor made those parachutes TOO?!?  :woot:  My brother and I thought that if we blew them up, our breath would be hot enough to make them lighter-than-air.  We jumped off the roof of our house with several tied around us.  Needless to say, our experiment did NOT work, and we got grounded for a month when Mom saw us flying by the kitchen window.  :rofl:

I to this day, believe his life was saved because Mom and Dad just happens to pull back into the driveway as he was climbing out the window and Moms screams stopped him. LOL  I feel bad for some of the things we put my mother through as children. 

 

When your a kid you never realize that "Scaring"  mom half to death is not a fun game, it's a cruel game.  LOL

I was spoiled, Doc.  My daughter, who is now 21, NEVER gave me a single gray hair.  She was always so placid and well-behaved.  I don't know what I would have done if she had been a mini-me!  :grin:

I'm lucky the same way,  My kids are the kindest, coolest, nicest, sweetest kids.  They give me no trouble at all (And they are all boys :blink:).  I am VERY lucky and count my blessings daily.
