Threes (It's All About Me)

Thursday, February 03, 2011

With thanks from trigramps, nanhbh, luckydogfarm, btrthaneva, and pelesjewel

Three names I go by:
- Larry
- Sweetie (only from my wife!)
- Senior Chief (now only when I enter the gates of military bases)

Three places I've lived in the past:
(how to choose from a long list...these are all Navy overseas tours of at least two years each)
- Bermuda
- Guam
- Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
(I have also lived at least one month or more in multiple locations in the states of Oregon, New Mexico, California, Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia and Florida)

Three sports I have played:
- Running (only seriously started in April of 2010)
- Baseball/ Softball
- Skiing (last in 1966)

Three things I love to watch:
- Ocean
- Starry night sky
- Sun setting or rising

Three places I have visited:
(OK, too many to limit to three so here are Areas with highlights)
- Far East (Hong Kong, South Korea, Okinawa, Philippines)
- Caribbean (Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic)
- Azores (never made it all the way to Europe)

Three people I love:
- My wife who is also my best friend
- All my family (can't limit to three)
- My dogs, present and past (I know, I know, but they are "people" to me!)

Three things I love to eat:
- Fried Rice, and most other Asian food except sushi
- Tamales, and most other Mexican food
- Southern BBQ pork (pulled or ribs) and Texas BBQ beef
- Cereal with Almond milk and blueberries - or pancakes with maple syrup!
I just could not limit it to three and this did not even go near desserts...

Three things I am looking forward to:
- Visiting family
- Spring, Summer and Fall
- Meeting MIH Teammates in Kansas in April!

Three songs that I like:
(I don't really remember song titles well so I will go by music genre instead)
- Today's Country
- Classic Rock
- Oldies but Goodies primarily 60's and 70's


That is just a glimpse at me and my life. How about copying and pasting this and sharing some things about you with your friends?

    My dogs are people to me too .I have the military brat refrain when people ask where I am from I tend to say "What year?" My Mum was a warbride though so I have done Europe too!

    Hey, Senior Chief,

Love that your dogs are considered people! You sure have gotten around this world. You made me laugh that you are looking forward to Spring, Summer, and Fall. ANYTHING but winter! I'm so done with it. We are due for another 1-3" tomorrow during the Superbowl. Thanks for sharing a glimpse of you!
