I'm Gettin' A Raise

Looks like they came out with the announcement for the Retiree Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for next year, and it'll be big: 4.1%, which is a full percentage point higher than the raise the active duty personnel are getting. (It looks like the big recent jump in gas prices is what caused the disconnect.) I guess I'm still recently enough on active duty that I don't really see how that's fair -- give me a couple years, though, and I'll probably be complaining about those young whippersnappers taking my money, and my parking spot on the base, all those damn tattooed hooligans, with their "rap" music and butt-cracks showing! Back when I was in the service, we didn't have all this fancy stuff...

Hey, I think I'll be pretty good at that. I'm already working on growing out my ear hair...

Going deep...

It helps to pour some beer and crumble some extra-greasy potato chip crumbs over the lay-z-boy to get it to its desired state of sad crustiness.

Since my ex gets a piece of COLA raise, I am more sanguine about it. I'd almost forgo the COLA increase just to keep her from getting more money.....almost.

Thanks for nothing Pat Schroeder.
