My son who is now 20+ came home on a four day leave today from the Navy (he is stationed on the aircraft carrier Enterprise as a Nuclear Powerplant operator in Newport News, Virginia). Probably to see his new wife graduate from college more than me Crying or Very sad but it was still great getting to see him. We shared our first cigar together today and had a fantastic three hour sit down and talk. Life is good. cheers

Sounds like a wonderful time Mike. Your son is in an outstanding field. I, too, was a Navy Nuclear Operator and spent some time on the USS Enterprise. That led to what is now a 32 year career in commercial nuclear power. What a great career it has been. He has a bright future as the nuclear industry in the US is getting ready to take off with the next generation of nuclear plants.

With all the weight he's lost over the past year you'd have to come in at about 70 lbs to be half the man Ej..

It's funny that you mention this as this morning I gave him one of the briars that I carved myself. I "hope" that he enjoys it as much as I did making it.[img][/img]

Mike,
That sounds great.
It's nice that you and Will had an opportunity to kick back for a while and share a smoke and some conversation.
