Well don't post too hot and heavy today- it will take me too long to catch up! Good night all. I am going to go see what' I can get for sleep.






Just got done texting with Ethan. He requested some leave time between leaving his current PCS and his next PCS. Does anyone know the odds of this happening? I know he has a lot of time accumulated, but I also know they want them checked in ASAP on the other end. Anybody have someone who's done this lately?

Sorry Bonita, I do not.

Bonita, That sounds like a question for Julie, Double Dad, or Wolf Dragon.  Course crawfish should know, huh?

Sets up coffee maker in new room

Bonita, I believe he'll have to arrive at his new PCS and check in, and possibly be there a short amount of time before he can request leave.  Each unit is different, however, and as surely as I type this, they'll approve his leave en route (fingers crossed).

passes cup of coffee over

ya, i dont get this at all, the convo makes NO SENSE NOW. please help and also whats "book mark it" mean and how do you do it?


You'll get used to reading down, Theresa.  Honest!!

Hmmmm, to bookmark, look at the very top of the screen where you see 'file, edit, view, history, bookmark...' or something similar depending upon the internet server you use.  Those titles are above the Marine Family Network website.  They're part of your internet server.  Be on a page you want to return to, click on "Bookmark" for the drop down menu, select 'bookmark this page'.  It's added to the sites that are already easy way to get back to any website without typing out it's 'address'. 

robert, scroll to the very top of this conversation and you'll see the title 'This 'n That'. 

Well, you guys, you're doing great.  It's really the same as the old, just it's own discussion.
