…here’s a terrific idea from Author pal, Bobby Madigan… get yer smiles out!…

…the beauty of running Guest Post pieces and invitations for, well just for stuff, on this blog is that there’s no end to the marvellous material that comes my way… my great pal, Author, Poet, Blogger, Bobby Madigan wants to see and hear more laughter… (applause from the back, c’mon, Lads and Lassies of Blog Land)… let him tell yeez himself:



I want to expand the discussion of military life. We hear a good bit of the grit, struggle, and sacrifice of military service. There are many accounts of the pageantry and gallantry. Copious opinions and positions have been registered on the political realities of wartime. All of these accounts seem to lose some of the humanity of service members. When I think back to my time in the service, my first recollections are of the funny, the foolish, the “head scratching” moments. I think of practical jokes and absurd assignments, like sweeping the tarmac in a sandstorm (This really happened). I am hoping to do my part to add a little levity. I did seven years in the U.S. Air Force, there were plenty of moments of laughter and comradery that bonded us as a unit. Really, I hope to bring a smile our two for people who can identify with this lifestyle.
