The Weather Gauge

Luke "Poe" Meineke is stationed on the USS Carl Vinson.  His ship deployed yesterday.  He'll be at sea for a loooong time before he sees land.  The night before, Marty bought us a bottle of wine at a nice place in downtown San Diego to see him off proper-style.

The gentleman facade lasted 20 minutes, then we descended into playing with The Big Fart Button, a fascinating game on Luke's cell phone.

Marty got a shot of the Vinson as it pulled away.  You can see the Sailors manning the rails.  Luke, I've known you long enough to know that any scene is better with you around.  Keep your wits about you, spread positivity whenever you can, and I'll see you soon buddy.

Send me photos and stories from abroad!
