According to authorities, everyone they dealt with had a large time.... so enjoy.....next time it could be YOU.....
HALLOWEEN PARTY pictures released by the 'authorities'...........
Pictured is the 'table captain',.....or, wait,.... could this be a game of 'musical chairs' gone awry...???
Pictured is a panoramic shot of the festivities just before the 'swat team' made their entry. I see everyone really went the extra mile to dress for the HALLOWEEN PARTY.... especially the fella with the 'frightening socks'.....!!!!! .....SCARES ME...!!!!
Ahhh,.... once again this year the Werenot sisters were in fine form. They always dress to the 'nines' for the HALLOWEEN PARTY. Nice goin', girls...!!!
Hummm,.. So, I guess you'll not be entering the ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS marathon...?
O.K., so is this the table that ordered the 'bite size' shrimp...?? I believe he's over there...
Myyyyy Grandma, what big teeth you have. A story...? You say you want to read a story to me...? You say it reminds you of me....? Little ol' me...? Why, I do declare Grandma.... I feel like you are making me blush..... I feel so RED....!!!
Pictured are a pair of the 'guardians', or what are left of them.... It was reported they were in a hotly contested game of 'I SPY' when things began 'going south'.
Photographed are some folks in the middle of an old parlor game called 'BARNYARD ANIMALS AND THEIR NOISES'. Usually it is a wholesome form of entertainment, but mixed with adult refreshments it can get out of hand and quickly...
Oh I see we have a couple of CLOWNS... Looks like they are 'mimes'. Looks like they are miming a song title,... could it be LEAN ON ME...?? Or could it be KNEE WALKING THE FLOOR OVER YOU..?? Or could it really be,..... making whistling noises with a bottle using nothing but your noses..?? YES...!!!
And, there you have it.... Another HALLOWEEN PARTY in the books.... And I do mean in the books... The 'blotter' was loaded this time.
AIR FORCE LUNCHEON annual Christmas party
The annual Christmas party was held at POST 24, but only after several documents were signed by those in attendance and the local authorities. Seems as though word is out about how POST 24 has an abundant amount of fun.
We, as members of the LUNCH BUNCH, decided a few years ago to invite our 'YOU KNOW WHOs' to the AF luncheon. Amazingly, we have been able to maintain control and limit their presence to the Christmas party. As a result, the hangar doors are closed, all talk of, and swapping stories about airplanes, are put on temporary hold while 'THEY' are around. It gives them a chance to re-hash all that has happened since the last time we allowed them behind the 'curtain'. Thankfully, it is only once, or twice per year. We let them slip in on Labor Day, but that is it. Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting back to swapping some tales of airplanes and comparing notes. After a couple of hours of that, plus a great meal, it is definitely approaching NAP TIME.....!!!
Aahhhhh!! We finally caught the 'weenie' who was making those disgusting noises, some so repulsive that several patrons had to turn off their hearing aids for fear of setting off the room's security alarm, and attracking several of the neighborhood dogs.
In this photo, a few folks are seen taking a much deserved 'break' after a rousing game of 'ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS'. The official rule book was used quite often to settle disputes as several of the contestants attempted to use unauthorized 'gestures'.
One of Santa's elves was checking on the patrons and cross-checking their names against the police blotter, better known this time of year as the 'naughty or nice' list. Judging from the expressions I can only surmise that some remedial work will be expected before they are allowed to hang up their 'stocking'.
Also, a new rule has had to be written, and 'enforced' regarding the use of 'said stocking' as a 'hand puppet'. Little did any member of the POST 24 staff know, or even realize, that such uses and gestures could be conceived, and employed, by this innocent looking piece of material, then deemed as a form of 'entertainment'.
Pictured above is the aftermath of a brisk game of 'musical chairs' that got out of hand and turned into a knock-down drag-out contact event. This exciting parlor game had provided much fun throughout many years with the AF luncheon. Sadly, a few bad prunes can play havoc with good intentions.
The mere fact that (T.O.T.) TIME OUT TABLES, were set up in advance of the festivities indicates that this 'bunch' is a bit too rowdy. As a result, this form of entertainment will once again be banned from ever being played within the confines of POST 24, or anywhere on POST 24 property.
Plain clothes officers were called to settle some disputes regarding 'VALET PARKING'. A minor 'tiff' broke out when a couple of disruptive drivers were attempting to multi-task while operating 'machinery'. Another example on why texting is so dangerous.
THANKS to all those who worked so hard to make our annual CHRISTMAS PARTY a success!!
JIM, MARTHA, JUDY, PEGGY, CAROL and KATHY. Thank you all so much. Everyone had a great time, the food was outstanding and the wonderful service was excellent.
We will be back again next year, providing the 'authorities' sign off on our request.
EGG NOGG party at POST 24, December 24, 2015Well, we had our share of 'NOGG HOGGERS' at our annual EGG NOGG party. The festivities began at 1 PM and folks were lined up against the walls waiting at 12:30 PM. It had all the makings of 'chaos'. JULY 4th PARADE on AMI We finally recovered the pictures taken of the parade on AMI. If you know any of the history of POST 24 then you know the 'authorities' always express an 'interest' in any photographs in and around our compound. After carefully checking to locate any 'persons of interest' throughout our collection they attached said collection to a large rock and heaved if all onto our property. Whew...!!! Dodged another one..... Below are the photographs returned. The HONOR GUARD photographer, Sherrie Lynn, took a total of 221 photos of the festivity. Enjoy...!!! A couple of the HONOR GUARD pose for pictures prior to the start of the parade. The HONOR GUARD BUS lead the parade from Coquina beach to the city pier. Seven miles long and two hours later it was over. The famed SCULLYWAG of the Privateers fall in behind the bus. The privateers organized the parade and it started exactly on time..... 1000hrs. So,...that's where that beach ball landed...... The vehicles that were entered in the parade were many and varied. Must have been at least a quarter of a mile long. There weres tons of people lined up on both sides of the route. All yelling, waving, some saluting, all having a grand time....!! Someone is trying to pass me at the finish line..... And here we are.....at the finish line..... It was a great parade and everyone had a great time. We will definitely do it again next year....
