Summer, don't ever end...and Saturday Snippets

Oddly enough, I'm feeling that way this year.
Everything is so relaxed.
The kids are moderately happy with almost nothing to do.
The climate in Colorado is heaven. I wish I could take the climate with me, like a blanket and drape it over our next duty station. No, I don't have a "next" duty station. I'm just saying... I haven't had my A/C on but for a few days right over that time when the fires broke out. Even on the hot days, there is a cool that blows through, and no matter what, when the sun goes down, the world becomes a perfect sixty degrees. I would like to bring my beautiful, green mid-west hills to Colorado...and maybe a lake and a few friends. ;)

As usual, trying to stay up on the blogging, I've decided to introduce Saturday Snippets. Could be from a book--mine or someone else's. Could be from a movie--I don't write movies. Or maybe just a funny snippet I heard during the week--in a conversation, eavesdropping on a conversation, on the radio. You get the idea. :D Today's snippet is brought to you by my son, Sean.

Sean: What does a soldier become?
Me: Uh, I don't know. What do you mean?
Sean: I mean, what do they become?
Right, clear as glass. Me: ...well, they can become nurses, or engineers, or--
Sean: Veterans!
