I joined the Navy to see the World

But upon reporting to my first duty station in the middle of the desert (NOTS China Lake, CA) this was my first job in the Navy. Thankfully there was only one way to go after this ... up.

Sunk

I’m not sure which is dirtier, the sink or the dishes.

Cunning creamers

When my sister and I were nine or ten years old, in the '60s, our mother worked at Wolfie's in Fort Lauderdale. A time or two we waited after school for her shift to end, and got to sit in a booth and help fill the little individual coffee creamers just like the ones this young man is washing. As I recall they were clear glass instead of porcelain, but it was their heft, which belied the tiny size, that I loved.
