In further news about my apparel, 5000 sailors saw me in my jammies when an aircraft carrier went by my house.
It’s pretty common to see a carrier in this part of the world, but I also live in a spot where the carrier can see
Which is a tad disconcerting when you are standing in your yard, blinking at the dawn, having been awakened by an insistent puppy with a very small bladder.
A passing aircraft carrier is surprisingly quiet, even surrounded by tugs and Coast Guard vessels. It glides by, barely leaving a wake, and on a very still morning at about, say 5:30a.m., sound easily carries across the water.
But I still think Navy guys are hot.
