In The Navy ๐ŸŽถ

Top Gun … and Son ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I’m having Star Wars flashbacks!

Darth Stefan found that comment profoundly hilarious … Excellent!

Meanwhile … It’s Summer Down Under

    1. Thanks for the timely reminder,
      Christine ๐Ÿ™ ๐ŸŽ
      Linda and I have only recently
      returned from Stefan’s officer
      training graduation, conveniently
      held at a top secret Naval base๐Ÿคซ
      a thousand miles drive away.
      Jarvis Bay, on the Australian east
      coast, to be precise ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    1. Stefan innocently responded to
      a position vacant advertisement,
      with Royal Australian Navy, as a
      training system specialist. The
      next thing you know he’s aboard
      HMAS Cresswell naval base doing
      an officer training course! Previously
      he’d been working overseas teaching
      science where he met his wife, a
      Spanish language teacher.
      At Stefan’s last posting he was put
      in charge of the online education
      for that particular school, so the
      Navy deemed him a suitable recruit.
      Now he’s a lieutenant … for goodness
      sake, and as he keeps telling me, not
      a sailor but a midshipman …
      or something or other โ›ต ๐Ÿค”
      Having spent the last 6 years
      working in Asia, it was high time
      for him to return home. Hopefully
      he’ll now be spending his time
      sailing a desk, no longer to roam ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      1. That explains why he hasn’t gone through ADFA, he’s already got a degree.
        Midshipmen are also known as snotties – because traditionally (RN) they’re 13 years old and cry lots because they miss their mums. ๐Ÿ˜€ Stefan definitely looks more like a lieutenant than a snotty.

  1. Wow the apple doesnโ€™t fall far from the tree. Very nice looking son. He looks great in his uniform. There is just something about a man in a uniform. You must be so proud. Great post and glad you had time with your son. Big hugs to you and your family David. ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ™love Joni

    1. Yes indeed, the family tree has
      sprouted many new branches๐ŸŒณ
      thanks to Lindy and me ๐Ÿ˜Ž
      We are as blessed as can be โœ๏ธ
      thanks Joni ๐Ÿ™
      In fact, we just got back from
      a farmer’s market, in the little
      Gippsland town of Kongwak,
      after having a pleasant lunch
      with Sergeant Darth Stefan and
      his lovely wife, Alexandra.
      It’s great to be free.
      Unlike a Uighur in China,
      held captive in slavery ๐Ÿšซ
