Well, I am back from an extended vacation. I did not mean for it to be this long but that is the way it worked out.
We had a great time in Vegas and thoroughly enjoyed our visit with our son. Did not spend much time in the casinos but did a lot of walking and shopping.
We returned home on Saturday morning and went that afternoon to the nursing home to visit my wife’s mother. She was sick when we arrived and had to call an ambulance to take her to the hospital. Long story short---she passed away at 1:04 AM Sunday morning. They said it was a case of flu that she could not recover from---her body was just too weak to handle the infection. She had been sick a couple of weeks ago and never really got better. At the same time I was coming down with I thought was a cold but it turned out to be the flu. So while we were planning the funeral I was as sick as a dog. I have been in bed for the last week. Some how we got everything done and are well on our way back to a normal household.
I will resume the reveille calls tomorrow morning and begin working on setting up a social team for Team Leaders, so we can gossip and have some fun among ourselves. God Bless You All!!!

    God Bless You Sarge and your loved ones during this time of mourning. God is good and faithful. I'm happy you're back and your spirit of motivating hasn't left you. The flu as we all know is not nice. BUT GOD! He has a plan for us all. Stay blessed, praying for you and the family.

    Hi, So sorry to hear about your loss. Also, it must have been very difficult to go through it all feeling unwell at the same time.
Glad to hear you are starting to feel better. My condolences to your family.
I will look forward to your upcoming reveille calls. Take care of yourself this week. Give yourself a bit of slack at such a rough time.
(not a military approach, is it?)
