It has been a while. Life is moving on as always. I do have news on my daughter and grandson for those who remember way back when.
Starting with my youngest first this time. 24s finally got his bride here on a fiance visa. It only took a year. :b... They are planning a legal ceremony immediately and do not look at it as their wedding day. We do. Of course we are going to go down to TN for the ceremony, wedding or not. 24s sounded pleased about our coming. Unfortunately, dh can't get much time off, so it will be a 2 day drive down, and a 2 day drive back, to enjoy 2 days there. That would be ok, except for a few other details that have come about.
24s had not been getting along with his boss for some time now, actually, since the gal who was between them quit a few months ago. It truly seems as though his boss has been trying to get him to quit. He HATES that ds takes off monthly to drive to NG duty in LA, and gets livid at the thought of 2 weeks training. He doesn't trust ds to do much, will not hand down assignments, and ds spends much of his time rereading textbooks. He appears, both by ds's description and the gal who was driven before him to quit, to be a control freak of some sort, and not a very talented one at that.
The final straw came last week. His bride was due in on Saturday. The boss scheduled him to go out of town this week. Ds said he would drive, which 'should' be perfectly fine normally. The boss said no. He was to fly and leave his bride behind, (note, with no friends, car and JUST into the country!). Apparently
