Two pertinent bits of data have come my way in the last 24hrs that I would like to share with you.
A reliable human intelligence source told me yesterday afternoon that the news not news was reporting that in recent days Iran had launch tested 5 missiles. More importantly what the news not news wasn't really talking about was that in addition to the missile tests the Islamic Regime also mobilized 50,000 troops for a multiple day combined arms exercise.
Last night St. Lissa asked me to go to Ms. Arcen's school web-site and write down her spelling words for this week. Normally St. Lissa does this function from her work machine but because of some schedule changes I was asked to help with this for the first time in months. We do not have a printer here at the estate so I took out a pad of paper and went to the site. Unbelievable, I thought to myself when I went to write down the list of words that my 5th grade daughter and the rest of her class are about to learn how to spell.
This week's spelling words are:
commander in chief
On the morrow the story of what happened after the Gunny left that night will continue.
