Actually when I see his seagull I remember a full dress inspection on the fantail of the ship I was stationed on that was cut short by the passage of
a flock of seagulls.
Despite being a guest on the ship, I was called to duty 5 - 6 times a day when the boatswain yelled over the PA, "Sweepers, sweepers man your brooms!
Give a clean sweep-down fore and aft" which frequently included removing bird crap.
I went "over" in September - SF to Yokohama - and came back in August, so the weather was very nice in the north-central Pacific. On the trip back
we had but 1,500 men which made the voyage more like a cruise ship! Speaking of cruise ships, I have never gone on one and have no desire to do so.
With 14,000 miles under my belt, I have had enough. I crossed the date line of course, but I've never crossed the equator.
I like your handsome canine too, Grover, and I wonder if you have watched this YouTube which includes a lot of great shots of wolves.
