    Update!
    New recruit Colonel FOG, reassigned to Special Ops,
    currently floating in a most peculiar way, attempting to retrieve Major Tom.
    How are the goats doing today? Say hello to Gunther for me and Pluto; we miss him dearly.

    "Tetched"??? And THIS.... is coming from a guy wearing Mary's Little Lamb on his head???
    urqh posted a masterpiece! I'll see to it that the next ROCAF F-16 is painted Shreck Green, so the Martians will recognize it as one of theirs...

    (Actually, it'll be painted to match the colorful sunburst on my 12th Sqdn hat, but that's a whole different and more serious story...)

    If they send me to mars on a three year mission I'd sure want to have ladies on board, or I'd be the one to be green upon landing on the alien planet.:D

    My SpecOps mission status: Was close to getting a grip on Major Tom (and my senses), but then he damned near bit through my glove. I think he's gone rabid. Returning to base now. Requesting permission to use G.I. umbrella for my decent. Will employ left-hand only.. (thank God I'm Air Force!)

    Thank You Aircraftsman Urgh for stating this in such a clear and concise manner. Makes perfect sense to me.
    And remember, My office door is always open for anyone who needs to talk. Of course I'll most likely not be there but go ahead and talk anyway.

    A Major, huh. I guess I'll take it. But I agree with Jeff; you are touched. The only thing I truly agree with is urqh as Goat Watcher. Oh, and war with Mars is declared.

    Lou, a Major is pretty important bit like the Sgt in the troops league...Who does all the work? And the goat is important...Name me one war the goat did not figure in...Its always ignored in general, but someone has
    to do it...The goat could swing this battle....Keeps a calm head in a crisis....Ask the Duke of Edinboro....He's inspecting the fleet before we leave by the way....Bloody marvellous he said when told...Spectrum is green chaps...
