John Update

In February, 2008 I tearfully sent my youngest offspring into the world.



It was a day filled with much emotion; pride, sadness, anticipation, anxiety...a classic example of Vegetable Soup of Emotions. (Moms do a good job of tossing together a bunch of emotions.)



Fortunately, it has been an extremely uneventful year and a half. John met the challenges BMT offers. He excelled at Tech School. He has done a fine job at Wright-Patterson.



And then, I got a phone call tonight. John received a summons for Criminal Trespassing. John, six friends and two pick-up trucks decided to visit some back roads. John's truck ( '89 F250) got stuck in the mud and it evidently took some wheel-turning to get the truck unstuck. Someone felt he tore up the park a bit too much. I asked him if he will get into any 'real' trouble from this little escapade, he said he is looking at fines.



Whew! I'm relieved! But, I'm also thinking...Damn, I'll bet he had a blast!



Do you think it would do any good at all, if Mom suggested he go back to doing this:

I think he will be OK.

I also think he will stick to muddin. There is nothing like it until you get stuck.

skywind...thank you for stopping by.

AirmanMom said...

mightymom..yep, muddin' is exactly what he was up to. While in Tech School, he learned to knit...I think knitting lasted as long as tech school :)

AirmanMom said...

julie...perhaps next time I visit John, I'll give you a heads up!

AirmanMom said...

hallie...he had fun, what more can I say? Of course, the beginnning of the phone call...caused a bit of palpitations.

AirmanMom said...

admiral...I hve no doubt he will stick to muddin'!!!

Sarge Charlie said...

so what is a little mud between friends, now when did the airforce start knit?

AirmanMom said...

sarge...John bought the truck for good times! As for the knitting, I doubt if females had anything to do with his decision to learn this craft ;)

Julie said...
