You do know, she is only with you 'cause she lost a bet..........
Best of the New Year to ALL!
SG, YOU DID GOOD!!
WOW--We sure derailed this thread didn't we
Hahahaha! Ya never know, maybe
The other day she raised her voice a little to me right after she'd gotten off the phone with someone from work (nothing I did, she was just annoyed at something at work and not paying attention) and I told her I didn't mess up their supplies order at work, don't use her work voice on me or I'd just spank her. She rolled her eyes and winked and said "promises, promises..." and wiggled her butt. The girl likes to live adventurously
Yes, yes, we did indeed get way off the tracks on this thread

CJWeaver, actually never mind the PM, I see now that it's in your public profile... When you said "they don't let us in the Rangers" but that you heard they might start sometime in the next few years the only group that I could think of (that I knew of) who might fit that was females but didn't want to ask openly in case you didn't want it public, but I see it's actually in your profile. I have a 15 year old niece who wanted to be a Ranger like me or a Marine sniper/forward scout like my brother, and for years my sister has told her sorry but they wont let a girl be either of those. I don't know what excuse my sister is going to use now but my niece just signed up for JR ROTC and is very determined. My sister asked what I was gonna do if she actually got accepted to Ranger school if they started letting girls apply. I told her I'd make plans to go to her graduation because the girl is athletic, confidant, skilled, and very determined and any girl I knew would stand a good chance of being accepted and actually making it through Ranger school she'd be one of them. My girlfriend was an Air Force para-jumper during one tour and did two others as a life-flight nurse and now works as a civilian life-flight nurse on an Air-Evac Life Team. I have seen girls prove they can do as much as many of the guys. My sister just rolled her eyes at me and humphed. All I could do was laugh and told my sister that she's only 15, she first has to finish school, join the Army, probably get some college in there somewhere, and then and only then sometime 10 years from now she will have enough experience to apply to Ranger school, and most applicants have to re-apply a couple of times before they finally get accepted so my sister is worried about something that's 10+ years in the future and if it happens it happens and we will be as proud of her as we were of my nephew who graduated Ranger School last summer. My niece is the youngest of 4 and you'd think after 2 older girls and 1 boy and all the others grown with families of their own now that my sister would realize they're gonna do what they're gonna do.
Yes CJ is short for Candice Jolene but friends, family, and co-workers have called me CJ since I was a teen. It sounds like your niece knows exactly what she wants to be but can't blame your sister for worrying about her girl wanting to do something so dangerous. Especially with her being the youngest.
