Peach gets physical

Okay, I"ve been stringing y'all on long enough. Basic training was really pretty cool. Drill Sargent could really rock out some great cadence! It was almost like dancing. :)

Now, back to Terry. He's the guy I took a shining to during basic. Really sweet guy, wrote me some poetry I still have. Don't know what ever happened to him, I don't know why we didn't keep in touch. Anyway....we had to be careful how we spent our time together. Uncle Sam was worse than my mom and dad! We couldn't sit with in so many feet of each other or have any physical contact what so ever. Well, needless to say we got caught sitting too close, holding hands and kissing once. Boy did I pay! Each time we got caught it was "DROP and give me 10!" Then it went to 20 then 50! I learned how to do push-ups real quick! At the end of basic there was a contest to see who could do the most. Guess who won for the females? Yep! Yours truly. I was in the best shape I've ever been when I left Ft. Jackson.

Well that's it for my Army stories for now. There are plenty more, trust me, including one about canoeing down a river losing a few articles of clothing ;) But we'll have to save that one for another day. Back to the hum-drum events of the every day house wife and mom.

Peach, thanks for your nice comments and for your visit to my site! I was looking at your favorite movies, and Dirty Dancing is one of my all-time favorites. I love the way Johnny looks at Baby when they are dancing......Northwest Airlines right???..... What kind of work do you do at the golf club? My husband and son are avid golfers...I don't have much time to golf anymore, not that I was very good anyway.

Nice journal, I'll be back
