Tina N. Timm Airman 1st Class

On Friday Morning 11/08/2019 Tina N. Timm became

Airman First Class Timm, Tina N.

Everyone knows what a proud father I am of both my kids and Friday was just one of the many choked up moments I've had over the years for Tina and Timmothy Timm. Tina graduated in the top 10% of 800 at Basic Training, earning her the rank of Airman First Class. She would have received that rank anyway due to her 4 years of Jr AF ROTC but she is more proud of achieving it this way with having a 98% in physical Training and a 95% in the educational testing.

I can tell you it wasn't easy, I've never seen my daughter so stressed and unsure of herself. It made dad cry a lot of tears in the last 8-1/2 weeks.

Tina and JerryInstead of one long post about my trip I'm going to post this about Tina and a separate post about the trip. HOWEVER in both posts I have to say fellow Rainer Jerry Newman is one FANTASTIC friend who made a lot happen for Tina and I on this trip. We love you Jerry!

Airman First Class Timm, Tina N. is now off to Gulfport Mississippi for her tecnical training as an engineer. If I'm not mistaken this will be an 18 week adventure and she will not have much more freedom then she had at Basic Training but even a little freedom will be greatly welcomed by her. She was really hoping to get her car back but that's not allowed so she will have to settle for having her phone back and the occassional opportunity to dress like a woman again.

Computer Tech… sometimes it's so easy
Sometimes the solution to a BIG problem is so easy we overlook it. It all began when I accidently accepted an offer to "upgrade" to Win10 on my tablet that was running Win8. 1. I liked 8. 1 and had no intention of changing but I hit the… more

If you have not heard of this horrific massacre of women and children visiting Mexico I hope you will check it out. Those killed had nothing to do with the drug world, they just happened to be driving big expensive SUV's like those that Mexican… more
Surgery Today
At the moment I'm sitting in a patient waiting room, in one of those wonderful gowns, waiting for surgery. It's a simple surgery but I'd still appreciate your prayers. I'll be going under soon. Thanks for thinking of me. Thank you everyone. It's a… more
Wish You Were A Better Speaker?
Do members of a Toastmasters club sit around, drink champagne, and make toasts? NO! However when I first heard of Toastmasters 35 years ago that is what I envisioned. It was not until I attended my 1st meet this year that I found out what really… more

Surgery Postponed *#!! &+!!
It's my own darn fault but I'm still mad at the Surgeon and her staff. Surgery was supposed to be Friday but now I've got to wait an additional week because lost in the multi-page directions of "prior to surgery" was a note that I should… more

Home Wiring Doesn't Need To Be Scary (or Shocking)
Wiring is one of those things you want to "get right" in your home. Most people are wise enough to let the professionals do the electrical work but there are some do-it-yourselfers who are daring enough to do their own electrical work as… more
