Thursday Portrait.....


My Baby brother Matt was in the US Navy for 20 years. He now lives in Norfolk Virginia.
He was always on a Carrier, this hat was from one of his ships.
Hmmmmm..Now you all know what Friday is, right kiddies?

oh mr knowitall, i could give you some very interesting trivia about adm nimitz for whom that ship was named....stuff i bet even you didn't know.

cool picture. happy portrait thursday!

lime said...

oops my mistake, i was just fact checking and it was carl spaatz, not chester nimitz...nevamind

Is your brother tired of the sea now Galen. Probably not since he lives in Virginia.

Great cap, I think you look a lot more handsome in a skullcap but that is just me.

Ask my son and he'd tell you his favorite cap is a Chevrolet one, no lie. It's battered and worn but I dare not get rid of it or he'd get rid of me leaving no evidence, his second favorite is his Oakley one.

Catch on the Flash lol

Missy said...

oops that is I will see you on Flash Day

as always great pic! My husband and I drove over to the Mercedes dealership in Knoxville to check out the Smart Car because I am very interested in one. They do start at around $12k and go up depending on the options you choose. I would have to keep my mini-van if I bought the Smart Car because my kids would have nowhere to ride.

Have a great day!

My SIL just retired from the Navy. She had been out in those boats patroling the waters to protect us. and I think she was out there a couple years back when we had the olympics to keep watch. I do know she was a repair person for the boats. I think she was on the SSHumphery. But dont quote me on that Ive been wrong before lol

My mom grew up in norfolk--she was a navy brat too (just like me ;)) My dad was on a destroyer and a frigit? (Or however you spell it.)

You look as huggable as ever, Galen!!

My daddy was an Air Force officer. But the Navy is the second-best branch of service. Nice hat, Galen!

Hi, Galen: My son was in the Navy for 6 years. Got his college degree there. He was in Norfolk for a time. Took remote duty in Diego Garcia and then in Iceland. I think maybe the base in Iceland is closed now. Hubby was (is-ha) a Marine and was on the Saratoga for a time. See ya tomorrow. D
