Ooo! Ooo! We've Spawned!

The Castle has it's first blog-spawn! Low-crawling out of the primordial ooze that is the Castle Moat, .50 cal M2HB on his back, is SGT B!

Kewl! Of course, when this happens, you tend to lose a good commenter. Boudicca disappeared when she started bloggin'!

The sacrifices we make. And boy, won't Cassie be annoyed to see us take credit - he was her prolific commenter for a long time!

Not at all, not at all :) The B-sphere's a big place - move over and set another place at the table.

Congratulations Papa. Beth, you must be so proud, too.

Of course, the progeny being a Marine, we can all expect the new generation to be a bit smarter (than *Dad*, at least, I suspect no one's smarter than Mom...)

*running away*

Jes' means this Marine will be raised right!

Well, if his commenting wasn't restricted to team members only, I'd have said "Hello." :(

Barb briefed on February 11, 2005 04:42 PM

Me too! What gives, Sgt B??

What do we have to do? Pass the Rat Line?

Sgt. B. briefed on February 11, 2005 05:40 PM

I think I figured it out...

"What this button do?"

*click*

(muffled explosion in distance)

"Uh-oh... Quick, hide the detonator, Dad's comin'!"

Ladies and Gentlemen (fingers crossed)
THE GUN LINE IS OPEN!

The mission was a success, SgtB - I left a comment for you :-)

For the record, Dad is a retired Navy Captain, (specialized in really powerful ordnance), who probably should have been a Marine...
But I count myself in wonderfully nefarious company!
And don't think this is gonna shut me up here, we Jarheads have PLENTY of BS to go around!
(Take your shots now, it's an inaugural day special, but don't get too used to it... Ladies, of course, are inviolate - 'cause purple is a nice color...)

Well, good. We can use the loudmouth *and* the loud explosions.

Surface sailors - they just have trouble getting their heads around the fact that they are just another form of self-propelled artillery...

But what'll he write about after he uses up all his M2 stories (in about sixty years)?

Boudicca briefed on February 13, 2005 08:55 PM

I still read, but so much is so technical, it is way way over my head. :( I just absorb. Just reading and absorbing!

John of Argghhh! briefed on February 14, 2005 04:59 AM

Oh, right. This from the math weenie engineer girl, complaining about *technical*?

Though I admit ya don't do equations on yer blog, and pedantry just runs in my blood...

Boudicca briefed on February 14, 2005 05:25 PM

I'm air support! I only understand the stuff that flies!!!
