A Brother Abroad

My parents, brother Mike, and Mike's amazing children just arrived for Joseph's birthday weekend/Father's Day celebration.

The house is spotless, the necessary accutrements are in place (root beer and peanut M&Ms for my dear dad), and I am poised to be a perfect hostess.

Two minutes later:

Dad: I just thought you should know that one of your posts was in error.

Maid: Which one?

Dad: The one that said the Marine Corps is the smallest arm of the military. In actuality, it's the Coast Guard.

I stand corrected.

Semper Paratus.

This is Day 142.
