Red Rover, Red Rover

Sailors set up an aircraft barricade during a training exercise on the flight deck aboard the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush on Jan. 7 in the Atlantic Ocean. The ship took part in training and carrier qualifications.

  1. For a second there I thought the crew would start twirling those things and the green-shirt in the middle would jump-rope jive down the line. It does get boring sometimes at sea.

  2. I thought it was a ‘one-man-per-team’ tug o war competition and the ‘Green Decky’ was the umpire…

    I agree, there are times when it does get boring at sea. I once volunteered myself to ‘chip n paint’ a steel hawser bollard for a charity fund raiser (by hand & not using a pneaumatic air gun), which attracted those who were even more bored than I, as they collectively stood around watching? So I charged them each; at £5- a head for the privilege!

    1. Now that Ex Bootneck explains your previous lengthy comment on John Bogle and your wise judgment in charging to look while you worked… taking stock and advantage of the situation at hand….k

      1. Kristen,

        My tip for these next few months is to keep your eye on the price of Au metal (gold).

        Watch what is happening around the Globe as far as political strife is concerned. When war is brewing the price will start to jump… Mali is just another step up that could create and play havoc with the French economy (this effects Germany and its stabilisation within Europe).

        Mon dieu, qu’est-ce que les Allemands font?

        Socialist France is rapidly going down the financial pan and losing real friends fast…

        View the following and look at the price of Au metal throughout the years. The ‘highs’ happen prior to a catastrophe (War, Natural disasters, Political strife, etc).

        There are two set fixings (timings) each day that allows you to view how the markets accept such catastrophe’s.

        1. Actually, Sir, I’ve recently spoken to my financial advisor as well from the beginning since the 2009-2010 timeframe specifically about gold…and recently because I see problems in the markets with the buffoons running the show…as you can imagine…I have a trust my mother left me as long as I am present on the planet and it looks like the monetary incompetents are in charge at the moment…it’s been configured as a charitable trust to be used upon my departure to three cousins and close family friends….when they leave this mortal coil it then transfers to my mother’s church…I did not become aware of this until she took her own journey home to God…I was quite gratified and grateful she did this…not only for me and our relatives but then ultimately leaving it to her church…I worry about that though because of what the leading politicians have done to America in selling out this country to the Muslim Brotherhood…and there is lot going on behind the scenes that is troubling…anything that I can do to fight these (the words escape me) people I’ll be more than happy to see them where they belong in Hell suits me right down to the ground…k

  3. CP: A little jump rope.
    Kris: Or tug-a-war. . .
    EB: I always watch gold. (Interesting side note. I saw a t-shirt for Barry Goldwater that read AuH2O.)
    Lou: It looks like that!
