I’m not going to get caned; I’m going to keel hauled

August 14, 2008

I’ve been thinking. I’ve figured out I’m not going to get caned. No, of course not; this is the Coast Guard I work for. They’re going to get me underway and then keel haul me. And since the vice admiral is the former CO of the BARQUE EAGLE, I think I know what vessel they’re going to use. I’d hope for a small boat, but I’m thinking with three stars, he can order up something a little bit bigger.
