Someone get these guys a universal translater!

One reason the military has trouble operating jointly is they don't speak the same language.
For instance:

If you told Navy personnel to"Secure the building" they would turn off the lights and lock the doors.

Army personnel would occupy the building so no one could enter.

Marines would assault the building, capture it, defend it with supressive fire and close combat.

The Air Force on the other hand would take out a 3 yr lease with an option to buy!

    I keep thinking that I'll sit down and write a coherent list of the things we did and where we visited.

    The only minor glitch was rain in Tuscany, on the one day we got into the countryside (boo!) - to attend two private winery tastings (Yay!). Food and wine in Florence and Venice were grand! I could go wander the funny little streets in Venice or Florence again any time, although the novelty wore off for Hubster pretty quickly ;-)

    We had a great time - I need to write it all down.
    *whip cracking*
