CQ's, 30 years, and OLMC

James has Carrier Qualified for his E-2.  Dad spoke with him this evening. James flew the E-2 Hawkeye last weekend and successfully completed the required daytime and nighttime  "Touch and Go's"  and "Traps" on the USS Theodore Roosevelt.

This (below) is a video of another navy pilot landing an E-2 on the USS Teddy Roosevelt, the very thing that James has done.

Also, today is the 30th anniversary of mom and dad closing on the "new" house and of our family moving in.
Corner cabinets, a wood banister and 30 years of Our Lady's protection.
And, of course, today is the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  She's been protecting our family for a long time.  And if you aren't enrolled in the her brown scapular, don't worry, there's still time

St. Teresa of Avila also wore the Brown Scapular
