The dreaded Meme attack

Sgt B just had to pass this along ... Thanks, 'Sarge'.

10 years ago:
I went to the Indy 500 for the first time. Unfortunately it was also the year that Roger Penske and Little Al went to Michigan instead. Still - we had tickets right past the yard of bricks, and I got pictures of Tony Stewart's car burning in the pits.

5 years ago:
I got laid off, we moved from Pocatello to Seattle, and I started working at my current job. I also lost my first best friend - my father ... Miss you every day, Dad.

1 year ago:
People on talk radio kept talking about this blogging thing, so I started reading a few, which led to the Milblogs ... and on.

Was spent studying for another certification, which I hope to pass today. (Yes, BillT - I am certifiable already)

Test in 2 hours.

Work ... and who knows?!

Since my tag success rate pretty much sucks these days - I won't tag anyone who doesn't want it. If you'd like to play, leave me a comment - and I'll add the link here in updates.
