  • Heaven's Lieutenants

    The voice of parents is the voice of gods,
    for to their children they are heaven's lieutenants.
    -William Shakespeare

    Direct from the gun deck of The Oldest Commissioned Warship Afloat, I bring you two things:

    1. My Dad's birthday socks in actionGuess whose idea it was to take this photo for the blog? (Hint: not mine. Isn't that great?)

    2. You can call me Lieutenant. Just a little cold for those summer whites . . .

    How quickly would it become annoying if I now responded to everything you say with "Aye aye!" and a salute? Immediately annoying? Oh, okay.

    Congratulations! I hope you all made it home relatively dry.

    By the way, I hope those birthday socks are regulation.

    I'm glad I'm not your only reader who didn't know you were in the Navy. Congratulations, and thank you sincerely for your service to our country.

    Congratulations! I'd completely missed the 'underway' and 'high seas' references. Thought you were trying to do a Lucy Neatby on us! I think your dad likes his socks...

    Congratulations! I, too, had no idea you were in the Navy. I'm a Navy brat - my dad was in for 26 years and my husband has worked as a civilian fireman at the Navy base near us for 20. If you ever get up to NAS Whidbey Island in Washington, give me a holler.

    Congratulations!! What a wonderful accomplishment! You and your parents must be very proud.

    Now let us know if you start any knitalongs for your fellow servicemen and women. (A semi-LYS around here knits helmet liners for the owner's son in Iraq, and I always thought that was such a neat thing to do).

    All the best! Debby

    And here we all thought we knew you! Congratulations! But are all your handknits going to have to meet navy regulations now?

    congrats!!!

    your smile and the proud look of your parents (I think?) must have made up for some of the coldness of the summer whites. Enjoy your last week as an almost doctor!!
