Good grief, Dan, you're from a Navy family.

That's like me not knowing what a British Sergeant Major means, when he yells, "Right Turn, March!".

Was this after the Canadian Government stopped translating Letters from the US into Canadian?

So I was out-of-State in Augusta, Georgia for a funeral for my wife's aunt, this past week-end.

Everyone there was from Georgia, South Carolina, or Mississippi, and so the conversation was filled with "Y'all's" and such.  While I was sitting at the luncheon after the service, I heard a man speak with clarity and distinction that sounded uncommon in the midst of all of this Southern drawl.

I said to him, "Your Vocabulary and Accent don't sound like you're indigenous to this region".

He said, "No.  I'm from Michigan."

I said, "Oh! So dat's why you talk so good, there!"

You can temporarily counteract the Drawl by doing a verbal exercise using lots of, "dese, dems, and dose".

Back in 1968, every teenage boy was in a band.  I was at my best friend's house, and we were in his bedroom, practicing on our guitars.

His father yelled across the house at him, "Fred!  Why for did you do dat what you just dun did?"

(That would be a good verbal antidote exercise, also.)

So, this Wednesday I was partaking of "Coffee With A Cop" up north. There were a dozen officers in the establishment, conversing with interested citizens. An older lady walks in, obviously under the influence. A lieutenant got up and asked her if she had driven there. "Here-sh the keys, honey!" Made the evening TV news.

I used to be with RCMP auxiliary (reserve constable). I remember doing road checks for drunk drivers and this one who drove up to me and had a glass bottle, with no label on it. He tried to convince me it was just water. So I asked him if he had any more water as I was thirsty and he reaches over the back of the seat, grabs a bottle of beer, attempts to tear off the label without me seeing, cracks it open and hands it to me. My partner saw the whole thing, said it made for an easy conviction.

He blew twice the legal limit.

While we're on cop stories last sat night a week ago I was Cleveland downtown getting my Uber on.  When a guy shot past the back of my car heading toward the barrier when 3 Cleveland cops were in hit pursuit. Before he made it over the barrier they had him down and secured. After it was over I thought I should have swiveled my dashcam around to catch it.

American Navy family!  Last few years I learned what NCC means too!  My family is varied Dad was 8 years Navy 1st Class Petty Officer storekeeper.  One of his brothers was Navy also, another bro was Marines (technically Navy haha), other bro was army, and my dad's father was Army WW2 vet. Grandfather from moms side was Army WW1 vet who had his leg cut off by propellor when pilot hit that switch too soon. Only branch not represented is USAF.

Road Blocks were illegal in Wisconsin. We used to have to catch them in the act of driving.

Last week, after 10 years of swaying with the wind, my aluminum flagpole snapped off at the base. Just finishing resetting it in concrete, but am still awaiting a replacement solar light for the top.

Our Rangers have been given the responsibility of taking care of our Church flag pole (50 feet tall) and flags (up to 24' long by 16' high). We have been mending the flags. I dread the day when we have to perform major repairs on the pole.

We just had a friend of the family stop by for a visit.  He is 85 years old, and from Tennessee, the area where the Battle of Shiloh was.

We were speaking about the Civil War Cemeteries in this area, and he mentioned a battle that took place by his home town.

He said, "There was a railroad station there, and them soldiers got off the train.  Well, Our Boys were a-waiting there on the hill, and opened up on them, when they started up............."

I think that when he said "Our Boys", he was not referring to Federal Troops.

Before my school consolidated into a single location, the HS was in a 100-year old building. There was a rusty 50' flagpole, and it was surrounded by a 100-1 ratio of weeds to grass. After getting donated materials, my homeroom students spent a Saturday on it. When finished, it had a new coat of paint and was surrounded by a nice block planter with colorful flowers. The immediate area had a circular flat-stone walkway, surrounded by metal posts connected by loops of heavy rope. The kids were proud of it and color guard responsibility was actively sought.

I just got "Roadblocked" last night here in Mississippi (coming back from doing a Royal Ranger Recon at Tishomingo State Park for this week-end).

I still had to tear my glove box apart to find my proof of insurance.

The Deputy saw my badge and said, "You must be familiar with this."

I said, "No. They wouldn't let us do road-blocks up-North".

Strike 1 for Mississippi. 

My wife helped avoid a checkpoint by pointing it out up ahead so I diverted off the route and through downtown Elyria. 

KY does checkpoints too. I recall a Men's event some of our guys came down separately and they hit one. A very pro constitution minded friend mumbled "Nazi Germany" in the back seat. They were let go but not before the officer yelled, "we got us some 'sovereign citizens' here". No one knew what it meant but I researched it basically individuals the establishment says think they don't have to follow the law and deemed a terror threat as well. Its not right to be deemed a terror threat for freely exercising the right to travel. We tolerate these thing in the name of safety just like all the compromises in our gun rights.

I highly recommend using Waze app on your phone it will help you avoid thinks like that and reroute you to go around backups, road closures, construction, alerts you to any traffic related impediment. Its also a social media app which depends on users called wazers to report traffic issues or speed traps etc.
