    For those with a CPO Select

    Advertisements
    Ok. Here it is. A thread all our own. I would love if we could come here for our updates, questions, and just share our experience with people going through it at the same time.

    First things first though; intros. Let's give an intro of our name, spouse/so, kids, what do you as for work, how long your spouse/so has been in, where you're stationed, different commands ya'll have been at, different jobs, what you like to do for fun, etc. Answer as many or as few you feel comfy with.

    Good Luck to everyone. Let's enjoy this as we'll never go through it again. And of course, Congrats to everyone!!!!!!!!!

    Is your hubby's real/legal name Johnnie or is it a nick name? My hubby's real/legal name is Johnny. He is the 2nd. He shortened it when he got "older". Like out of the house when he first joined the Navy. And now we have our Johnny whose real/legal name is Johnny. He is the 3rd.

    LOL How funny/ironic is that? John's grandma does that, medical transcription. She does it for extra cash. She owned 2 businesses and then sold them almost 3 years ago. She fully retired for a bit but was so bored she started the medical transcription. She likes it. And she has picked up on a lot of medical lingo from it.

    John is so funny. I'll mess with him by calling him Johnny. He'll just glare at me, shake his head, and say "You don't know me like that". LOL Meaning I didn't know him when he was growing up. I met him when he was 23....and already John. lol Those who did call him Johnny most of the time. I remember when I first started dating him. I was talking with his sister and I said John instead of Johnny. She gave me a puzzled look and asked "who". I was like "your brother". lol
