    Back in the old days, a bunch of us left the ship to get our annual hearing test. 'Course since it was held in the building next to the enlisted club we just stopped in to have a liquid lunch.  Failed the hearing test, had to go back for another try.

    The good old days!



    I was that guy in the picture. I remember one test the tech said to me over the headphones “The test hasn’t started yet. Why are you pushing the button?” 
    I had tinnitus even back when I was 18 years old.

    My best friend was a Christmas baby. He hated it. Here's how he put it in our book:


     I’m a Christmas baby. Born on December 25. Some people think that it might be fun, but I’m here to tell you it’s not. Every year it’s the same. “Well, Jimmy, we’re going to get you a combined Christmas and birthday present. But it’ll be real special,” Mom would always say. And it never was. My brother Howard would get something as good or even better, and he’s not a Christmas baby.


    Rarely did he get an actual Birthday card. People would just write "happy Birthday too" on his Christmas cards.

    My birthday is one month after Christmas. 
    Believe it or not members of my family would buy me the same thing as my brothers then say “Oh, by the way Tom, that’s for your birthday too.” Cheap bastages!


    As to Alpo’s question:

    When I was a kid I would have preferred my birthday to be on a holiday. That way people might remember it. 
    As an adult. I don’t really care.

    That got me thinking about my Grandfather: born in 1882.

    He remembered when he heard about the Wright brothers at Kittyhawk, Bell and McCurdy's Silver Dart, flown off the ice at Baddeck N.S. and then was alive to watch the moon landings.

    That’s what I like about you, Pard. You always seem to see the good rather than the bad or negative. :)
