Back!

It was a great week!!  Beautiful weather couldn't ask for nicer time... Dusty on Tuesday when a large wind came... no storm... just lots of wind!! whoo... there went my hairdo!!!  (ok,,, I have straight hair, nothing fancy that a brush couldn't take care of!! )  Teaching was a lot of fun!!
My trainees participated in a week long mock Op which I believe they all enjoyed... with lots of woe and intrigue! and included breaking and entering skills and clandestine theft!!   


Fun times when Gunny jumped out from a spider hole and "gunned down" some operatives who failed to reconnoiter... tsk tsk  "Red Tags for four" .....

Had my eye on one trainee.... She was exceptional.... I just don't have an opening in the department but... "Babs" is on my very short list (lovely singing voice... I nicknamed her Babs for Barbra Streisand .... But alas.... she'll get scooped up by another department..... "Rookie" had a lot of fun and generated some well placed fear of the Irish into the hearts and souls of the trainees... ha ha....They are used to US military , but a hard swearing Irish Commandant?  It was a whole new set of skills to learn quickly....Trust and Believe!   

Food was beyond good.... yummy and plenty!! including steaks on the grills and shrimp and we even had a crab feast!!  ..... and ice cold watermelon! 

And as instructors can leave campus, we made the most of the local watering holes!!


All in all.... a successful and (at least for me) relaxing week....
