It's growing on us

This started as a joke....

a deployment 'stache if you will, but it's growing on us. Literally on one of us and figuratively on the other.

I have received many comments, some positive and some negative. My favorite was that I looked like an "old school Naval Aviator." My favorite negative comment was when one of the other Dept. heads asked one of the JOs, "don't be scared of the O-4, what do you think of the 'stache?" Her reply...."I thought it was a joke. I'm not really a fan."

I don't know how long the 'stache will last, but for now the whole family is enjoying it.

If any of you civilians are confused by my military terminology, Scott of the Stringer Zoo has compiled a Bloglossary of many military terms, you may find this helpful. BTW he is also sporting a deplyoment 'stache.
