"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" ✡ I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Yargh!! You're ready to make way, Cap'n!
Only if it's at least 300 ft long and submerges. I have a tendency for sea sickness. LOL
Thanks for the add.

Ted H. I looked up your sub and that's freaking cool. Love to hear some of your stories. At least the ones that still aren't classified.
Thanks for your service from a child of the Cold War.
Writing the next chapter that I've been looking forward to.

I was a missile guy in the Navy. Washed out of sub school when they told me to take my glasses off and read the chart on the wall.
Was first in my class up until that point.
A mind is a terrible thing.

Pbbbt - when I found out they didn't see the sky for months at a time I politely turned down the opportunity.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I saw the living quarters on a sub when I started working on them as a civilian. Was glad I ended up on the Big E.
Subs do get the awards for best food consistently though.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Looks like you got it when it was shiny and new, too. Very cool.

I like the sub tradition of passing along the perfect cribbage hand from the Wahoo. I found out about the tradition after getting a perfect hand earlier this year.
