Things That Float My Boat

Early yesterday morning I was up enjoying a good cup of hot coffee and playing around on my iPad. I checked into the WordPress blog stats section because they’ve recently added a nifty list that tells what search engine terms have directed people to your blog.  It’s a rather interesting little list.  You can’t adjust it or influence it in any way and to be honest I have no earthly idea how the Internet gods connect me or my photos to search engine terms but the list is fun to look at.  For some reason it kinda floats my boat.

Imagine my surprise when among the more mundane terms like wide grip pullups,  Floor Wiper muscles worked and female abs was something that sparked my curiosity.  It said Marine Corps sniper motivational.  I decided to go to Google and look it up myself.  I didn’t see anything of note until I looked in the images section.

I discovered not one but two of my photos as I scrolled through the images.  See me there….surrounded by Marines?  Now that floats my boat!

There I am…twice…

If I’d known my picture was going to be included under such a cool heading I would have made it a point to style my hair or put on some artfully applied make up….I suppose it’s a testament to my desire to look reasonably decent in my photos that I actually take off my black baseball cap.   Lemme tell ya all that fussing with blow dryers, curling irons, hairspray, spackle…I mean foundation, cheek color and eyebrow pencil is exhausting.  It’s not my thing. Let’s just say I lack skill in that area. For example, the first and only time I tried easy-on eyelashes I managed to glue the corner of my left eye closed. That looked especially nice.  If I knew I was going to be ensconced among Snipers, tagged as motivation no less,  I might have posted something more like this.

A new one for the Marine Corps snipers and everybody else too…

Or maybe this

Waving my flag for the Marine Corps

On second thought, look at those Snipers.  It seems they’re working hard, probably covered with sweat, dirt, grime and some of them with vegetation…..but enough with the sexy talk, I’m getting off track. What I’m trying to say is maybe, just maybe I could get away with wearing my baseball cap and that sure floats my boat.

On another note, if I ever did serve as a little morale booster for a Marine or any of our Soldiers, Sailors or Airmen, if anything I posted ever provided a pleasing distraction during quiet times in unpleasant places, if any of my photos elicited a smile then I can happily say mission accomplished…and that really, really floats my boat!

  1. It floats my boat, too, especially the first one!

  2. Listen here my spider monkey! I totally love that you support all of us Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and yes, even those Air Force folks! LOL! Anyway, I am not sure I lovin’ how much love you are giving my Marine brothers! Hahaha, just playin! How are you doing? Been out of touch for a while…trust you are doing well.

    1. Ah ha…while the Jay’s away the monkey will play! Lol…Hi Wonderful Jay! All is well on this front although I do miss you. I don’t check into that often and when I do it’s just to switch a photo. It’s still so slow. It drives me crazy. Workouts are going really well although I’m too skinny for my tastes right now. Holiday eating ought to take care of it. If I lift hard, I always gain muscle around this time of year. I guess the extra calories help. Happy Monday to you…hope all your loved ones on the East Coast are doing well…

Hope all is well in your part of the world. Gym has been good this week…pushing a little harder because…because…well, it’s time. You know what I mean. You push hard for a while, then coast for a minute and then push hard again. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!!
