Couples Week #3: Military Couples

Putting yet another twist on the "couples" theme... The Peanut Gallery is full of active-duty military personnel and their "better halves," as Drew puts it.

As always for this week, couples' names are listed in the order George calls them down.

(Disclaimer: Since the military personnel are in uniform, and since the armed forces have issued official C&D orders to Price on the subject of name tags, I can only guess at the spellings for some names. If I butcher anything, please accept my apologies in advance and know that it is not intentional disrespect on my part; I'm merely doing the best I can with what I have available to me.)

Spoiler: Those of you waiting for the first time the correct price is the first in line will have at least a little longer to wait. ;^P

Actually, with so many odd numbers in play, that leaves only two realistic possibilities on the table... and I doubt a Honda Rebel is only $2,309. That's CRF-100 territory. And so...

Let's see... so far this week, we've done blind dates, we've done anniversaries (on the Lost Episode), and now we've done military couples... how about a co-ed baby shower tomorrow? And as for Friday... well, there's something special in the works, that's all I can say (I try not to spoil coming attractions here, so if you haven't already heard you won't be doing so from me).

"Stars and Stripes Forever" plays us to the Fremantle Splatters, and we'll see you next time...
