the airman

Everyone, I’d like to introduce my nephew Nate, a newly graduated Airman in the Air Force! I’d post one of his super freaking cute baby pictures but he probably learned how to kill with his pinky finger, or something like that, while he was in basic, and I’m just not willing to risk it. No really, it’s because I don’t have any of him that don’t also include me and there’s NO WAY I’m posting evidence of my big 80’s 90’s hair. (Okay, I still have big hair, but whatever.)

Anyway, he just moved to Pensacola but doesn’t have off base privileges yet and so he’s been bored all week, waiting for his next round of classes to start. He’s so bored he’s shopping online on his cellphone because he doesn’t even have his computer yet. Yesterday his ennui was soooo bad I risked my secret identity and sent him my blog to read. Heh. You just know a 20 year old man (dang – just saying that makes me feel really old) is just going love reading about his auntie’s life of motherhood and gardening. I haven’t heard from him since this message last night: “LOL your blog lolol.” I’m pretty sure he’s laughing at me not with me, eh Nate? Hmm, I may have sent him into a glassy eyed stupor with my writing.

So now, everyone wave hi, and leave a comment for Nate! I’ll make sure he comes back to read them!!!

edited to add: well darn it, none of the comments came over when I moved my blog!

    Hi Nate!
    I remember when you were just about 3 years old… cute as a button.
    I hope your aunt doesn’t tell you where I live – no need to test out your new skills!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your recent accomplishment! Very proud of you!
    I hope that things get less boring – but stay somewhat “not too exciting” as well.
    All the best!

    I don’t know you, but I do remember when my son was at his first Air Force base assignment. He was so bored that he called home saying he was going to get a tattoo. Now I’m not trying to give you any ideas here. A lot of folks end up paying thousands to have those little gems removed a few years later.

    Hope you have your computer by now!

    Hi Janice! I’m sure you didn’t give him any ideas that he didn’t already have! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Nathan,

    I think it’s really cool that you’re grown up now and on your own! I’ve spent my entire adult life praying to God that everything would turn out well for you so I’m happy that you’re doing something important, that matters to you.

    Call whenever you want – don’t forget about us! 🙂

    […] coast. I wanted to visit before the summer’s over, and the timing was good so I could see my nephew (he’s at my sister’s for a couple of days too) before he heads to his new Air Force […]
