Another very old recording has surfaced and is leaked to the public -- a recording during the reign of King Roger II. He seems to be explaining the facts of life to a naive officer...


"This was the work of those sorry ass Peeps again! All they do is take, take, take! Why do they always have to just take, take, take!"

"Because, young man, with the MWJ, we are the haves, and they are the Havenots."

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

"Sir, Operation 'Dunce Caps' has captured more Solarian warships choke Sir."

"WHAT? HELL NO! OH, HELL NO! One of you record this memo to dispatch to all commands."

"Ready sir."

Meanwhile, back on Grayson, the Keys are upset again...

"I told you we shouldn't allow treecats to play baseball! Now we can't win a single phucking game against the Harrington Treecats! Just because the team is named after them doesn't mean we had to let them play!"

"What the hell is that one doing?"

"He's shaking his butt. Confident."

"What's he pointing at with the bat?"

"The center field wall."

"What? That's 610 feet!"

< 'Throw it high in the strike zone or low. I'm gonna tear the cover off the ball' >

'WHACK!'

"That ones gone too."

"Damn, it's like they know what the pitcher's gonna throw!"

<I like kicking the stubborn asses of the Mulers>

<I think they're M-u-e-l-l-e-r-s, nothing to do with mules>

<That which we call a mule by any other name is just as stubborn>

< Harrington Treecats' pastime, "Baseball, Celery and Chevrolet">

<What's a Chevrolet?>

<Damfino. Sounds good though :lol: >

< :lol: >

"Damned Treecats!"

NEWSFLASH!

A MAlign sleeper agent has been exposed on Manticore. She was caught photographing Harrington's personnel files. When the photos were examined and she was interrogated, it was discovered that she wasn't exactly interested in Harrington's records.

Apparently it got back to Malign ears that Nimitz had been spending an inordinate amount of time at Saganami Island while Honor was teaching there.

It seems that the MAlign are frightened. They just want to know if Nimitz' first name is Chester.

The precursor to Nimitz' specially ordered grenades.

Uh oh. Apparently cell phones can butt dial in the Honorverse as well. Pillow talk leaked to the public...

"But Beth, honey. You love Harrington. Why do you bristle so, when I mention the Harrington Doctrine."

" Because I've always fancied the original Harrington Doctrine...

Methinks someone (no names cthia) has too much time on his hands. ;)

Just my opinion of course and probably not worth the paper it's not written on.

Methinks someone (no names mind you) is correct, if less than 5 hours of sleep daily is... too much time.

I keep telling my wife the same thing that I have too much time on my hands since she's been away. She's off on a three week vacation bonding with my sisters. PLUS, I rarely get 8 hrs of sleep anyways. Research. Do people still get 8 hrs sleep?

Always surrounded by several computers all day. 1 winblows. 7 Linux. 1 supercomp. And a couple androids that I rarely use. 2 Sharps. Several Gumstix and enough Raspberries to make wine. Or pie. But through it all, without coffee mind you, I still find time to stop and smell the roses, and laugh.

Laughter keeps one young. It is one reason my wife says she was drawn to me. My youthful personality.

But between us, I'm pretty darn sure its the good looks and charm. And ahem...

I think cthia's fundamental problem is Honorverse Withdrawal.

E-Arc! E-Arc! E-Arc!

I don't. I made do with 4 hours at a time at sea (4 on, 4 off PLUS having other tasks like refueling at sea, flight quarters (on a DD no dedicated flight deck crew,) drills, "regular" work plus as division LPO personnel issues.

Sleep? You can sleep when you're dead or retire. After 20 years "retirement" I've finally managed to train myself to "sleep in" for an extra 1.5 to 2 hours. :mrgreen: I still roll out at 5 AM to go to work for an 8 hour day and an hour commute each way.
