Do What Again???

I have a tradition and today is the day! Every year on November 6, I put on my tap dance shoes and go crazy. At least that’s what the police claim after my neighbor called them to do a welfare check. Ridiculous. I’m not even on welfare. I’m always impressed by people who can really … More Do What Again???

They’re Killing Me!

When I was in Air Force boot camp, we were outside doing physical training. We were told to get in formation and remain still and silent. I couldn’t help myself. I started squirming like I was dancing (not a pretty sight). I heard “Mabbott, what is wrong with you?” “I’m covered with fire ants, sir!” … More They’re Killing Me!


It’s so hot, Siri just told me to put my phone in the fridge. It’s so hot, the hottest woman in America lives in a shack in Phoenix. 43 years ago today was my first day of active duty in the Air Force. Talk about culture shock! I went from the wonderful temperature in Eureka, … More Fire!!!

You Can’t See Me!!

When I was in the Air Force, my Sargent was chewing me out for several things.

He Bit Me!!!

I don’t know why veterinarians have a special day. Maybe its because of the danger they face each time they examine an animal. Still… Oh wait a minute.

First, the good news Airman Vanhowser will be setting the pace on our morning run”. We were really happy because Vanhowser was overweight and really slow. Then the TI finished his statement: “Now for the bad news. Vanhowser will be driving a truck”. … More Attention!!

Who’s Calling??

I worked for the Air Force. My first day, I tried to impress an Airman who started walking into my office. I picked up the the phone and said, “Yes, General, I’ll have it completed this afternoon. Thank you, sir, and the best to your family as well.” I asked the Airman what I could do for him. He said, “Nothing, really, I’m just here to hook up your phone.” … More Who’s Calling??
