I've Been Promoted!

I was pretty bummed when I found out I didn't get promoted to E-7 this cycle. I studied real hard, but not hard enough obviously! Seems I wasn't the only one who felt pretty bummed. One of my new friends Ron Phillips (VO-BB), jokingly said he was going to get me promoted...one way or the other. I assume this is "the other" way he was talking about. All laughs aside, I'm very honored for this promotion. In fact, so was my Chief. He called everyone to attention and read the below letter.




I think if anyone, my Uncle Jim will be the proudest of this promotion. He's lived in Kentucky for like "ever!"

With this promotion comes the secret recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken and a lifetime supply of Kentucky Moonshine. I can only share the later with all of you!

Well congratualtions Chris!!!!! It doesn't come much better then being a Kentucky Colonial! Not to mention the fact that we have now retired to Kentucky and now we have "clout" here, Can you do something about our taxes? If not we'd rather have the moonshine!

Congratulations Chris - I salute you! With your new culinary secret, how about if you host the next vo-bb party? Um, I vote for Italy....

I vote for Italy as well. We are saving already for that trip, Chris. Congrats on your promotion. Sorry to say, I'm with Aunt Donna" "SEND MOONSHINE". Thanks for letting me hear pieces of your firecracker show. Wish I could actually tune in and hear you all live.

PS I will email Uncle Jim and have him drop by

Uncle Jim said...

Congratulations nephew!!! A Kentucky Colonel......it doesn't get much better than that here in the Bluegrass State. Just make sure that at some point you come to Kentucky to get the full grasp of this honor bestowed upon you. Keep up the outstanding work!

I think a VO-BB party in Italy is a great idea. I just found out you can buy a barrel of wine for around $30. That's a barrel...some 30-40 bottles worth, plus about 10 bottles worth you'll lose while trying to transfer it.

I'll check into the taxes Aunt D. How wierd is it I have an Aunt from the Eder side and an Uncle from the DeLong side of my family both living in Kentucky, I've never spent more than 2 hours there and I'm the Col.?

Dude...Jaye is here on my couch and we are both giving you the 1 finger salute in honor of your promotion.

Congrtz...now maybe we can get to the bottom of why Kentucky Fried Chicken has Sweet Home, Alabama for their jingle...the last great mystery of our time.

Hey Chris, congratulations. I wish I could take credit for the promotion but all I did was throw out the idea on VO-BB. It was ROGER TREMAINE with the connections. I salute both of you. Well done.

Be safe! See you on the board.
