Keeping the blogosphere posted on the goings on of the world of submarines since late 2004... and mocking and belittling general foolishness wherever it may be found. Idaho's first and foremost submarine blog. (If you don't like something on this blog, please E-mail me; don't call me at home.)

TSSBP Open Thread

While I'm off getting surgery and recovering in Seattle, feel free to use the comments here to post your best sea stories, or whatever else strikes your fancy. (Nothing too controversial, please!) I'll hopefully be able to post occasionally from my phone, but I probably won't be able to include links, like this one to a story about "Hey, Shipwreck" creator Pat Hrabe setting up shop in Kitsap County now that his recruiting tour in northern Idaho is done. As always, The Sub Report is the best place to get your submarine news links, and all the submarine bloggers listed on my blogroll to the right will have great commentary while I'm indisposed.

Going deep...

Perhaps I'll bring him a laptop on a mercy mission. I'm sure after a couple days bored in hospital he'll be all "I need links! I NEED LINKS!!!"

I just read "All Hands Down". There was a reference to the "...auto fuel..."

Even I had a chuckle about that one.

These SCORPION conspiracy theory books really make you wonder huh......

Joel, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how strong you are - but you are that much stronger for all of us who are pulling for you.

And Ninme is right, you need a laptop, you will be jonesing.

Joel's son here (national merit one) - Surgery went fine. Joel is cancer free. He is maxed out on morphine and still in pain, but that's cause he's old (jk, but seriously, he's in pain). Will report as needed
