Return of the LOA · 5:10am May 13th

No, I'm not practicing voodoo, or am the victim of it (I think). LOA, in this case, means Leave of Absence. I'm off work until they can find an admin job for me somewhere in the system. My knees just can't tolerate all the walking.

Good news about it is I'll have more time to write. Question now is, what shall I write about? I'm sure I'll be able to think of something.

You do have a point, but I use the 'ex-' prefix to show two things: 1) I did not retire, i did 8 years and out, and 2) I have seen the ocean exactly twice since 1986, and both times it was the wrong ocean. I was Atlantic fleet, not pacific.

Semper Fi, Biker Dash!

There is no "ex-sailor", just like there are no "ex-marines. You served in the Navy. You are, and always will be, a Sailor, just as I will always be a Marine.
