Short-timer calendar...

96 posts in this topic

Ok, so I am currently using the Playboy calendar on my wall as my short-timers calendar, so thought it might be fun to post one online also. For those of you that don't know what a short-timer calendar is, its a count down until we are on that big freedom bird back to the United States. Now, I can't do an exact count down and give out our exact departure or arrival date due to OPSEC (Operational Security), so the exact count down maybe off by a up to several days..

I will try to post to this everyday, up until the day I leave. if I miss a day for some reason, I will post the next and I will defenatly post once I am home!

It looks like you've been making sure you're well equipped for when you return based on some of your other posts. Hopefully the time flies for the remainder and you can get to fishing! A guy at work is also in Kosovo, and I believe he's scheduled to return around the same time. He picked up a new boat on one of his leaves, so I'm sure he's itching to get it out.

Oh, you are right about that. hsolist has been way to addictive to me lately... Its all good though, I am itching to get out fishing. The first full day I am home I plan on hoping in my car and hittin up the trout streams all day long. I plan on pulling a 5am - 8 pm fishing day.

It will be nice when you you can change your avatar to a great big rainbow trout that you caught on your first fishing trip. Thanks for serving our country and making freedom a choice for others. It has been a few (25 since I got out) so I don't remember all the short timer sayings but the one I do remember is "I am so short I could play handball on the curb". One of the best moments when I was out processing out of Fort Dix and they said we could pack our uniform and wear our civilian cloths for the last 2 days I really felt like I was going home after being station in Germany for almost 3 years.

Dude, you're so short you need to hem your pants.

Look me up when you get back home. There's always an empty seat in my boat for a fellow vet.

I will do that.. I got three months of paid leave to use up when I get home, so i figure that leave me enough time to catch some nice fish.....

If it doesn't, it gives me three months to figure out a really good fishing lie!

Just wanted to say thanks for all that you men and women do for the rest of us.

So, to those who are serving now and to the ones that have served in the past...

Thanks (From the heart)

That's funny stuff right there.

Heck, we can come up with some whopper sized lies after a day in the boat. Plus, I know a guy who can photoshop a mountian out of a molehill. So, if we don't catch anything we can take picturs of the minnows and turn them into whales.

Hey, you deserve three months to do what you want when you get home. You will find folks to take you out. Like I said before, you are always welcome in my boat.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
