  2. Who but a military (or ex-military) type would know what “Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot” means?

    Sure got ME to chuckling.

  4. John, you know I’m an Army brat, right? Did I ever tell you about the time I told the church lady who came to visit that my mommy was making SOS for dinner?

  5. Now I’m really curious; what DOES “Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot” mean…. or is it just funny code for the initials…? Duh, I am not as bright as your neighborhood transients, y’know!

  6. Judy, it’s code for the initials. The code is military. Every letter of the alphabet has a word associated with it. That way, letters can’t be confused over the radio waves. You know how “B” and “D” can sound alike over a bad connection? The code was made to correct that. Therefore, “A” is Able, “B” is Baker, “C” is Charlie, and so forth. So of course Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot is “WTF.”

  8. Candace,

    Thanks for your comment on mine. I had a lot of fun with that “funny” one. Yesterday’s (up today) was in desperation, because I’d written something else but saved it on my litle flash drive and misplaced the drive! I’ll wrap up the “series” this evening.
