The ceremony (if you could call it that) is called a naming. Its a big deal and there are traditions, drinking, lots of laughing at our people's expense, more drinking, and then the call signs be given out and voted on. This call sign will be Mr. Jetplane's name.
The naming will commence after work tonight and go into the wee hours of the morning (potentially). Obviously I'll have to go pick up Mr. Jetplane if he doesn't decide to sleep it off at the squadron bar. That's another thing some people might not know. Each squadron has its own bar. It is located in the squadron and its decorated with squadron colors and memorabilia. Its a gathering place to eat, drink, and socialize.
So in honor of the naming...and the drinking tonight...Here is this week's Pug Friday.
Let's pray the call sign isn't too bad and I won't be ashamed of him for the 20 years :)
* To address a question I have been asked alot - Mr has been given callsigns at the various squadrons he's been in during training, but those don't stick. Your callsign doesn't stick until you are in your first operational squadron.
You are the one that makes it all seem right. You are the one that makes my world go round. You are my saving grace and reason I can smile every morning.
I love you... now please take out the trash :)
p.s. for some reason this is my favorite picture of my husband...
If this pug video below doesn't give you a smile...well then you are a heart made of stone.

Happy Pug Friday...
Cue Panic Attack...
The house is pretty clean, except we live in what could be classified as a work site.
I work from home and actually hate when other people are in the house. It makes me jealous and I want to come out and play too :( Its also annoying because no one remembers that I'm on the phone the majority of the day so they don't always use their inside voices...that's a double :(
But its great for Mr. Jetplane to spend some time with his mama before he deploys... which is going to take place most likely in the next 30 days.
Cue 2nd panic attack....
Wish me Luck!!
