Waiting Games

Tonight we wait. All is quiet on the western front but that will not be the case for very much longer. Starting tomorrow, we’ll be rolled by a series of lows making their way south parallel to outer track. The game, as they say, is on.

There’s really not too many choices so, heads down, shoulders up and right at ’em. Two up and a hot meal as we used to say in the Army.

Speaking of Army, a fellow office and ex-Rodent (too long to explain and you know who you are!) Richard Hearn emailed me and graciously pointed out that it is a Jordan Series Drogue and not a Johnson Series Drogue. Now Richard knows that I know what the proper name for the thing is but he he kindly suggested perhaps it was the auto-correct feature of the device that I was using that did the damage as opposed to a failing mind.

I wrote back thanking him for sparing me the public humiliation and to tell him that it a indeed the product of an ailing intellect. I as so tired I as not quite right in the head. I remember thinking something wasn’t right and it must be the spelling of Johnson. Was it one ‘s’ or two?

As them old Royal Roads Military College motto goes, Truth Duty Valour. Thanks for keeping me honest.
