Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Shannon must be Irish... I love a Strong Woman!

The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment. Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.

The next day the kids came back and 1 by 1 began to tell their stories.

"Bradley do you have a story to share?"

Yes, ma'am. My daddy told a story about my Aunt Shannon. She was a pilot in Desert Storm and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a small flask of whiskey, a pistol and a survival knife.She drank the whiskey on the way down so it wouldn't break and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of twenty enemy troops.

She shot fourteen of them with the gun until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last two Iraqi with her bare hands."

"Good Heaven" said the horrified teacher. "What kind of moral did your daddy tell you from this horrible story???"

"Stay the hell away from Aunt Shannon when she's drinking."

Big Low Curtsy to Boudicca's Dad for the Strong Woman Joke.

By the way, you're going to have to start making distinctions between "Daddy G", "Daddy H", and the man who raised you :-)
