And yes, I realize I have unjudged contests stacked up again. Sorry, but they take time and I have to be in the right mood. Doing them at 4 am doesn't really do it for me and lately I haven't been around weekends. I'll get to it - I promise. I wouldn't have gotten to this if someone hadn't generously donated the photo.

All the boys were hoping that Coach Jones would pick them for the Navy's new Synchronized Swimming team.

Try as they might, the FNGs couldn't see how the exercise they were doing was anything like pulling a hard bank at 200 knots.

Hello Everyone!

Now an exclusive "Entertainment Tonight!" look at rehearsals underway for Broadway's musical adaptation of "Top Gun".

WOW! Look at that military breakdance routine! It just goes to show that there's nothing too 'out there' for broadway to take a shine to!

The boys on the flight crew couldn't figure out why the spinning arrow on the Twister game always came up right hand green.

Leiutenant (j.g.) Jerry "Twelve-wire" Petersen knew that word of his application to join the Blue Angels was out...and things did not look good.

Hey, somebody remind Harvey to let go of the damn wing -this time- before the catapult kicks in.

Hitch hiking anywhere is dangerous, but on an aircraft carrier especially so as you also run the risk of being knocked over by the back blast.
