Our friend Jim did the honors while our friend David read the official orders. It was starting to sprinkle rain and I was way consumed with how big my hair would be by the time it was over that I didn’t turn around once to face the camera! What was I thinking…??? My backside is NOT my best side!
We had a great little party afterwards with take out barbecue and the few dishes I made at home. Nobody cared, just as I thought. As a matter of fact, I had the barbecue in the crockpot to keep it warm, opened it up to stir it a little and David made the comment “Wow.. that smells so good” Dinner Win! I did get lots of positive comments about my peach cobber and red velvet cake. (from a box) The potatoes were a hit, as always. Who doesn’t like hash brown potatoes mixed with cream of mushroom soup, onion, cheddar cheese and sour cream??? It’s really a no brainer.
Here are a few photos of our little promotion ceremony.
Jim giving a little background on Nick's career.
David reading the orders.
Me putting on the new Velcro rank while Jim struggles with the pin for the beret.
While I was kissing Nick, Jim makes the comment "Oh good, the one finished first gets the kiss, I'm glad it was you" Is that true? Is that a rule? Maybe that's why he was struggling with that pin.
Nick making a few comments of his own.
Me getting my hug. Notice that lovely black boot on my right foot. I was hobbling around.
Tomorrow is my final follow up doctor's appointment. If everything goes as planned, I should have stitches removed and hopefully, be starting to walk normally again. I'm crossing my fingers that not only have I healed well, but that the surgery did what it was supposed to do and there will be no need to mess with it again. I will let y'all know!!
