“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Cold & windy

Just the day you don't want to be freezing outside on a call-out...

thankfully it was over quickly, but still not a fun way to spend my day off.

But the magic words? Didn't you forget the magic words?


Which is why I did not complain a single bit at zero-dark on the 1st when Husband got a call-out. That's DOUBLE-O.T.

True Meadowlark - the OT was nice.

But the patrol guys handled the call like complete and total idiots, the citizens were just as bad, and I was so cold I wondered if I had reenlisted and missed the memo!

But, thanks for reminding me of the perspective :D
