    Okay....when my popeye went off to USNA, I swore I wouldn't be "one of those parents" that went overboard (no pun intended) with the waldo watching (online pictures) or buy everything in navy and gold......HOWEVER....I came home from shopping yesterday with........I know.......it is overboard.........blue and gold dish scrubbers....and felt good about it!! And the first thing I think upon rising in the morning is......."I wonder if there are any new pictures online?!" as I race to the computer! And before I bought the dish scrubbers, I dropped off my jacket that I purchased on I-Day at the embroiderery shop to have the word "MOM" stitched under the word "NAVY".

    For the record.....POPEYE'S MOM HAS GONE OVERBOARD!!. :help::jaw::eek:

    Yes, PPW, plus trips to Mid Store every visit to Annapolis, plus Army-Navy at least once, plus home football game tailgaters, plus Whatever They Are Calling What Used To Be First Class Parents Weekend, the Commissioning Week round of events ... you will need to plus up your Blue & Gold Index incrementally for each one. When you start putting Bill the Goat soaps in your guest bath, then it might be time for some rehab. Just consider it your contribution to the Brigade MWR Fund.

    We have parents of a '00 grad who STILL come back to shop at the Mid Store.

    Of course, it's way early to start thinking about the '10 class crest pin and miniature barrel pendant of his class ring... :wink:

    Popeye's mom you are not alone. I am expecting a call from my plebe candidate who is at USMMA. It is now 9:06 and no calls. If you look at the board you will see lots of USMMA parents on. I stalk all the sites,boards and facebook. Good thing I am off for the summer. I love the idea of having MOM2013 stitched. Thanks. We have alot of Blue and Gold also. I have a feeling it will be a long exciting ride.
