I wanna arm wrestle someone, or do some push ups or something.
I have testosterone flowing threw me like water threw a fire hose.

Reading about Seal Team 6 will do that.

One of my Christmas presents from my daughter Bryn is the book, "Target Geronimo," which is the story of Seal Team 6 killing Osama Bin Laden. A great read if your into such subjects.

I haven't even gotten to the part about Bin Laden, because the author, Chuck Pfarrer, sets the story up by giving the reader a little back ground on the Seals, what it takes physically to become a member of this storied group and some summations of other tasks they have taken on in the past.

Remember when the pirates stormed the ship Maersk Alabama and took the American Captain hostage? It was Seal Team 6 that was called in to free one of our own.

All they did was parachute into the water, swim a couple hundred yards with full battle gear, get on the ship, set up sniper positions on the stern of the rolling ship, watch the lifeboat that housed the 3 pirates and the American Captain for a couple days through gun sights, monitor what the pirates were saying with high tech James Bond type stuff, while the life boat was being towed a great distance behind the ship.

When the moment was right, 3 sharp shooters took out 3 naughty pirates with one shot each, while keeping their pulse at a normal relaxed state.


If I wasn't afraid of parachuting, swimming in shark infected waters and guns in general, I think I would be perfect for the job.

I'm sure you would. But you wouldn't be able to blog about your adventures, so what fun would that be?

All the writing today (and the photographs) are insistent... but that first one is throbbing with power.

Ha! You got my attention; didn't know where you were going with all that manly testosterone! Sounds like an exciting read. The seals have always intrigued me; just an amazing group.

Oh dear! I think you had better look for something other than being a Navy Seal.
