Transcript THE BLUE BONNET ?age Three jays-- r c^Jf A letter from "Obie" O'Brien, CBM on the Penguin out there in Guam, was the topic of a conversation with our barber friend "Curly" Standafer. Brought back to mind some of the persons who at various times have sat in that barber shop in No. 2 Messing Comp't. Bart Fahey, now Chief Boatswain's Mate on the new Savannah. Adam Hall, MMlc, whose deeply felt demise was written of in the last issue of the Blue Bonnet. Each was a good man in his own particular rate, besides being what one called "good people". They have left their marks on the ship's company of the Rambler Ship — either in physical memories as the knot boards made by O'Brien or in the fond memories of their shipmates. Thanksgiving Day has gone, roast turkey, mincemeat pie, and visitors in the afternoon. Almost like what kids in the early days called an "extra Sunday" in the middle of the week. Soon Christmas will be coming as is attested by the various articles commencing to appear in Ship's Service displays at the store. Some pretty nice articles to be found there too. Many a Seaman Second will be a couple of months getting over buying a 'set' for that gal. Too bad some of these "Hamburger Bandits" on Pike Avenue have so many of our tenderer lads in tow. Seems as if it takes a whole cruise to let some of these kids wake up — and then some don't! Well here's one for the Blue Bonnet. Huskey, Pfc. 5th Division, found a piece of sausage box about 4 inches long in his fried balogna. He brought it to the attention of Ocko, and was informed that if he knew the Butcher as Ocko did he'd not be surprized if he found a plank. Shipfitters seem to have an awful time with our slop chute. Seems Condition Affirm causes the water supply to be shut off. Pedple put stuff in it and it doesn't go out. Result — Condition "A" secured usually finds several of the C&R tribe outside the Issue Room door ■— usually muttering in their beards or telling how "we did it on the ". Keep on and they'll know how to clean it out in "E" time. What happened to Vought, flagboat crew's messcook in forward mess- deck? Met him the other day as he came out of the barber shop and had to ask an interested looking master- at-arms who it was. Seems the lad claimed he'd not been paid for six weeks or so — maybe the Jimmy- legs stopped in at the Majestic ■—how should I know. ? News of raging fires in nearby Santa Monica areas and nearby Malibu Beach tells us several movie celebi-i- ties lost homes and neat cabins. Sure is lucky for some wavy haired office lads (who fancy, we gather, they look like Dick Powell or Nelson Eddy) we could name that they joined the Navy. Be tough if they'd entered the film industry only to lose a home. (Note — one signalman's mustache indicates a William Powell tendency.) Recognized by some of his proteges on the Rambler Ship was Woodward, CGM on the Tuscaloosa observing a firing a week ago. Long ago known as "Doc Woody" by members of his recruit companies, it was a certain third class the other day who had the nerve to yell, "Hi, Doc!!!" Ocko also knew and was glad to see once more a man who had often befriended him. Come over again some time "Woody". "Santa Ana coming up!," how those Golden Grainers hurried to be on the quarterdeck before boat schedules had to be abandoned for the night.Don't blame 'em a bit, woulda been there myself if I'd had their interests to look to. Jim Wallace, GMlc, has just about made up his mind(?) to write Battleship Max Cohn a letter of appreciation. Seems Jim plans to go up for "the buttons" and Max is trying to sell him uniforms before he takes the exam. Says Jim, "He's got a lot more faith in Wallace than I have." Sarge Worthington says he's planning to group all the men on the ship less than five feet six inches tall into a band called the "Feather Mountain Merchants". Says also that Sylvester, CCM, should be top man — gonna have Scrapiron Powell for the cleanup man— always leaving a mess wherever he goes. Franklin, CWT, told me one supposed to have been related by a friend on the Saratoga just after her commissioning. "The Captain," he said, "had been 'round the Horn, always wore his sword dragging the deck, the O.O.D. sent liberty parties ashore from the driver's seat of an Austin, the quarterdeck messenger used an Army motorcycle, the Exec went a- shore in a Lockheed-Vega cabin plane and the ship's cook on watch used a one man submarine to see if the vegetables in the soup were done or not." There my lads, is a sea story. Beats any Fibber Magee or CBM Promos ever told. Parting shot: Sombody try to beat it.— Yours Ocko P.S. (or sumpin) George Herrick, CWT is going to the Relief for treatment. Long time CPO mess caterer and Chief Oil King, he is pretty well known by all hands who wish him a snappy and complete recovery. St. Marie, CWT, takes over George's Oil King duties during his illness. WORDS A word of blame can make you sad; A word of praise will make you glad; Since words bring joy or grief your way, Be careful of the words you say. Make the best of everything; Think the best of everybody; Hope the best for yourself. Cheer up and SMILE! We hear that Germany is naming her ships after jokes so the English won't see them. Aviator "There I was, forced down on that lonely isle with a lovely blond." Gob "What did you do for food?" Av "Darned if I can remembeT.''
