March 2014

As we emerge from the Dark Ages...

After the (October) Deadline, Jeff Hackett checked in from the Valley of the Sun: You’d think as a former Scribe I would have noted what you were sending was your deadline to Tom as opposed to our deadline to you (but if you're undermining my nearly unblemished record of NEVER getting a column submitted on time...well, that just wouldn't be right.) Time flies: Chris and I celebrate our 11th Anniversary next week (beginning of Nov). It's good to be a 60 Year-old USAFR retiree–first check showed up on June 1st! Still loving life at Boeing (but consciously on glideslope for retirement Memorial Day 2015). Was happy to see several Ninth Squadron classmates on this year's college football trip (cycle through alma maters with two other crazy-for-college-football fans, an Ohio State and an Arizona State grad). This year we caught USAFA–SDSU. Very cold (for a boy from the desert) and the outcome not at all what we had hoped for, but tons of fun.
