Pass The Bounty PLEASE.....

OH BROTHER....I can't stop crying, I feel like a crackpot. It was just to darn quiet here when I got up this morning. Fed Ms. B, ran out to get the papers, fixed a cup of coffee and headed out to the deck to read ~ RINGGGGGG! HELlO!! It was Mr. P, they had made it to North Carolina & checked into the hotel at 3:30am...they called me several times from the road to keep me posted & Billy sent a few pictures to my phone :)

Billy was exhausted so Mr. P was letting him sleep in a bit, then they were off to breakfast and to explore Jacksonville.

One of the 1st Sgts from Okinawa is now stationed at CLJ & he was quite fond of our Marine and had called Billy a few times while home on leave. They made plans to meet up so that he could go by the room and pick Bill yup and take him onto base and show him around so that he would know exactly where to go tomorrow! Let me tell you that made this momma feel 100% better! I know they are trained machines and can handle any and all situations but ladies at the end of the day they are still our baby boys and always will be!

I couldn't take all of the peace & quiet so I headed out to the beach for a few hours and it was nice. Hot & breezy the surf was rough! Then back home to the peace & quiet...

I'm waiting on my guys to check in so that I can hear how Billy did on base!

I'll let all of you know tomorrow...going to call it a night my friends!

Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless...please keep praying, it really works :D


  1. Thinking of you.... :-(
    Think of it as Billy having an ADVENTURE!!!
    New stuff, New place, New roommates, New chowhall. He will find the pool, and the gym and the theater (old brick building) it's where I turned to go down the street to pick up Justin every time we went. (my landmark)
    There are paths to go out and run/jog that take you down by the waterfront, and there are some big houses back there (doctors and bigwhigs live there, Justin said)
    Hugs to you!!!

  2. Oh, bless your little heart! I know you are having a hard time with all of this and I wish I could give you a big 'ole hug! It is all gonna be OK, he will adjust and so will you. Like I told my dear Sister, routine is good and you will both be back in your routine tomorrow. Love you bunches and I am praying for you all! HUGS!

  3. I sure hope that you are ok!! I know that it was easier to leave Justin and come home than I thought!! I have the comfort in knowing that he is not being shot at so many times a day!! I know that he will adjust and will enjoy this new adventure! I do also hope that he and Justin will meet up at some point!! Enjoy your day and know I am here if you need me!! Love you bunches!!

  4. (((hugs))) I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with all of this right now. You have so many emotional things to deal with at the moment.

    I'm sure it will be a little easier once he settles into his new routine, so you can "see" that he's doing just fine.

    It's never easy to be away from family. As you know, that's one of the tougher parts of the Corps... (((hugs))) and {{{prayers}}}

  5. I thought you said you were a crockpot! I couldn't figure out what that meant. lol! Hey, I just woke up! At least he is on American soil and on the east coast. He is where my Justin Langager is stationed! Praying for you and your family... and your marine!!! And your doggy too..:(
