No Joke, I just bought something from Bill MacEwen
« on: June 22, 2010, 06:28:56 AM »
Seriously, I was checking my Paypal accout to get an update on a CD I had purchased and caught the real name of the seller...
 
So I have to ask, Will I ever get the CD *promised* to me?  and will it be wraped in a T-Shirt?
 
I LOVE E-Bay:laughing:
 
All kidding aside, the seller is in Canada so I don't think it is him.  But what if it is?  Then I NOW have his personal E-Mail address FTW!

J, you crack me up! XD

How are you doing, Battle Brother? Is everything well for you and your unit, El Tee? I met a kid the other day at the watering hole, I have a stake in. He's Marine Corps Reserves and a ground pounder, like myself. He told me he was getting deployed to Afghanistan in two months. It depressed me a bit, knowing that our reserves were being fielded on the "front lines" (I'm still against the war, but that's another story.....). He seemed chipper about it, but I could see it in his eyes. That sign of someone whose never seen action and while he's all "Hooah!" (or in their terms, Hoo Rah! ;) ) about it, I could tell he was worried. The only thing I could think to do was ask that he made it back in one piece, thank him for his service to our country and pay for his and his friend's tab.

I don't care what branch you're in. Once a solider, *ALWAYS* a soldier.

I sincerely hope you're doing well, Sir. I apologize if my comment on calling you a "battle brother" was offensive, as though I am a retired non-comm, you are and will always be, my superior.

Feeling that.  We are gearing up to depoly soon also.  But you know that about all I can say about that ;).
 
It will be my first deployment also, and every now and then I feel that jitter of the unknown, but not only am I an El-Tee :biglaugh: but I'm the battery XO, so I can't let that get to me; too many people I need to look over to worry about myself.

Don't EVER apologize unless you ment wrong in the first place. "One Team, One Fight" right? I never see myself as above another, just given a different job.  Anyway, I get along with the NCOs more then with my Uppers. :juggler:

Yup, I know.  But if you google him, half the hits have the "Mac" instead of "Mc" so I went with it. You know, have fun with names and all that. :python:

Hi J,

Don't forget he was a long haul truck driver before joining the ranks of the tech tycoons like billy gates and The Steve;)  Maybe he went back to his old nomad ways [to avoid the Sheriff(s)] and he really IS in Canada. Sometimes Mexico ...

Hey from NCAUGers.

Paladins?  one five fives?  one oh fives?  Can't have the king of battle without the queens :D

I feel sorry for you guys deploying this late.  the ROE is sphincter tight.  But hopefully there is much less wild west compared to when I was over there.

Good luck sir!  As a grunt there's no better sound in my mind than the sound of big rounds going down range above your head.  Well, that, or the sound my pig made on cyclic :lol:

No more need for artillery:angry: is the official word.  We are going to be mech. inf.  We were out for three weeks training on up armors and ma duces.  Fun, but not the same.  I was a 13F when enlisted and NOTHING compairs to getting 155 rounds on target.:cool:
