still maintain the “gig line” on my shirt, belt buckle, and trousers
still lace my boots left over right
while walking I still make “crisp” turns either at 90° or 45°
always start off walking with my left foot forward
still curl my fingers and swing 9 and 6 while walking
still use 24 hour time
still use ddmonthyy for dates (13Sep07) that really jacks people up
hang all my clothes in the same direction “dress right” in sections in the closet (this drives my wife nuts)

and last for now that I can think of:
when I’m out target shooting at a non-range (family or friend’s land, etc..) I shout “Is there anyone down range!?” and declare the range to now be “Hot” then shout “Cease fire!”
i still drive over pot holes to avoid the shoulder land mines, how ever my real question is do you really have 80,000,0xx posts

I didn't of course, but that memory is with me to this day.

I never lived in Azle. About the closest I've been to there would be Grand Prairie shortly after my Dad retired from the AF (back in 1974). Sure looks like a neat place though, right there on Eagle Mountain Lake. I have a little 10 acre lake in my back yard...not quite Eagle Mountain, but I like it!
Kelly AFB...That's where I was discharged from in 1970..
