I'll bet it was months before she could say it without smirking!

Once upon a time one of our submarine fire control systems was giving us trouble from a piece of hardware that required a special implement with which to give it permission to launch. I can still hear a certain commanding officer saying "Weps, you should know better than to get your dongle stuck in a computer like that..." I had to transfer off the boat to get rid of that story.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Follow up... my car is back in the shop. Yes, the problem definitely was the brake rotors.

Both the front and rear brakes need work done. Calipers, brake pads, etc. etc. etc.

Oh well, now I know for next time when the twist happens ..must be the rotors.

Have you ever seen a headstone with these words
