Flashback Friday - Working Out

Now that I'm back on the workout wagon, I thought this picture was appropriate:

This is at Carol's old apartment in Alabama during our dating days.  Here's Carol's idea of working out together.

Flashback Friday - Guest Writer: CJ!

Thursday, August 4, 2011 2
Hello internet!  It's CJ and I'm the guest writer for this week's Flashback Friday.

It's been awhile since we've lived in Korea.  It's hard to recognize that short, buck-toothed kid on the left with the shaved head and glasses surrounded by Asians.  Living in Korea was a blast and I'm so glad to have made such great friends there.

In this picture, I'm standing with my fourth grade class inside the hangar bay of the USS GEORGE WASHINGTON aircraft carrier.  Awesomest field trip ever!  Guess who set it up?  The dude on the far left.  Next to my Dad is my teacher, Ms. Taylor.  She was fun, despite the two to five hours of homework.  She was an Olympic swimmer and even knew Michael Phelps.  Pretty cool.  The teacher in the back that's taller than my Dad is Ms. Keenan.  She was my science teacher and was equally as awesome as Ms. Taylor.

Chilling with the boys.  From left to right is Koyo, Daniel, Sam, Kevin, the Ceej, Dong Whi, Terry and Ricky.  We were a pretty tight group of dudes.

This is my Dad's close friend, Uncle Whip.  Whip is his nickname, or as my Dad says, his callsign.  He and my Dad flew together for a long time.  They were squadron-mates and went out to sea together.  Here he is giving an impressive speech about something.  At the time, he was the Mini-Boss on the George Washington.  If my Dad had the same job, I think he'd be called the Mini-Mini Boss.  Uncle Whip is really cool.  He even gave me a Darth Vader action figure from the original toy collection!!!  I'm talking about the big 12 inch figure.  The guy in the ball cap is Mr. Walt.  He ran the Seamen's Center by my Dad's work.  I always liked going to his restaurant to eat real American food -  like pizza and tacos.

 Me chilling with the brown man on an aircraft carrier.  It was an epic day.
