Attn: Fleet RNinMunich, Commander Nerys, et.al
Belated Holiday greetings and SITREP Western Fleet,Texas Navy.
The newest flagship of the Texas Navy is ready for trials. The original schedule was going to be this week as I’m on holiday from my civilian job..however, the whole barracks was under the weather over the Christmas holiday. I came down with it first as it was being passed around the shop the past 3 weeks. I then decided to share it with my wife and daughter as the family that’s miserable together is...well, miserable together.
In all seriousness, the Commodore, Teresa, got it worse than I did. Whatever bacterial infection we got decided to mutate into a mild bout of Pneumonia, but she’s getting good treatment and seems to be on the mend.
Also, Cadet Grace (my daughter) has herself a BOYFRIEND at the tender age of 14. He’s a good kid, good family, met him in Church camp, so there’s that. But, between the holidays, the sickness, and playing Uber for my daughter we are both beat. Oh, did I mention that the ROmarin Dolly with the fittings kit AND the fire monitor kit got back ordered from Harbor Models in California and has just now passed thru customs. That really upset my wife, as she ordered it for my Christmas present. I told her it’s just one of “those” Christmases, things happen, and we’ve been blessed for the past 25 years that most of our holidays have been very good ones.
Anyway, that’s the SITREP in a nutshell. We’re all a little cranky save Grace, as she’s having quite the time..think she needs a “character building” exercise...like cleaning the litter boxes.😊
One other thing. I’m Texas Navy attached to the Royal Navy, correct? Do I hoist the Texas ensign or the Union Jack? Please advise soonest.
Respectfully, Midshipman Hargett, Texas Navy
