Out of the Past...

Did you know that O was once a parachutist? Yes! Once - just long enough to meet the training requirements, jump from the plane, and land in a chicken coup (more on that later).

Our hero! But no, the bandages on his fingers are not a result of his crash landing into the hen house. It was a training accident, in which he caught his fingers in the hook that automatically pulls the rip cord as you jump from the plane. Owie.

OH, MY, how macho and sexy!! Now I know why you stayed in Peru!! I guess a man in uniform is a man in uniform no matter what nation he is defending!

I absolutely agree, Maggie! Actually, O really IS my hero...no joke.

Que guapo...maybe I should visit Peru;-)

Seriously,I have always wanted to go see Macchu Pichu. It is one of the only dreams I have ever had and one of these days I will do it. So does Kathleen want to be my tour guide when I come down to visit?

What a handsome fellow - no wonder you're way down there in Peru!! I have to say that I fell in love with my Great Dane when he was in an air force uniform - sigh......
