Military Minded?

Happy Hump Day

When I was polling my faithful followers last week on possible replacements for my closing groaners, several people mentioned quotes.  Well, it just so happens I have a few good quotes for the military minded I can share with you today.  Not military minded?  Okay, you get kitties.


'It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed.'
- US Air Force Manual -



'If the enemy is in range, so are you.'
- Infantry Journal-










'If you see a bomb technician running, try to keep up to him.'
- Infantry Journal-



'You know that your landing gear is up and locked when it takes full power to taxi to the terminal.'
- Lead-in Fighter Training Manual -










'When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane, you always have enough power left to get you to the scene of the crash.'
-Multi-Engine Training Manual


'Any ship can be a minesweeper. Once.'
- Naval Ops Manual -








And for your Hump Day "aw"...



You know you'd forgive him.


Hope there was a chuckle in there someplace for you.  Just enough to get you over the hump and heading for the weekend.

Please say hi while you're here but forgive me if I'm a tad slow in responding.  I have to go gut a house today. Seriously.

See you on Friday.

Grandparents can be quite tasty if you bring them to a boil and let simmer for twenty minutes.

Thanks for the laughs! Love the quotes. :)

Maria Zannini said...

I like the quotes! But I especially like the news headlines.

By the way, what kind of school advocates cooking and serving grandparents? Probably have to stew them a long time before they're edible. :)

LOL at the cat thumbs meme... have you seen that commercial where the man is eating cereal, and a gang of cats grows thumbs and figures out how to open the door and come inside? I forget what the commercial was for, but I nearly killed myself laughing.

Carol Kilgore said...

Can't even pick a favorite - loved them all!

Happy gutting. I think.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

As a military brat, I appreciate those!

Darke Conteur said...

Sarah Allen said...

The gutting was step one of a disaster recovery rebuild. Went pretty well.

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Not sure if I knew you were a military brat but I thought they'd appeal to you.

Darke - Great. That's what I'm aiming for.

LD Masterson said...
