Bush Jr. will either enter the family business, or Barbara will protect him and he goes into legitimate business. Please tell me that the butterfly effect gives him some actual intelligence too.
Good points, although I see the Russians being mainly involved on the Black Sea coastal regions in P-M's most magnificent tale of stupid luck & happenstance. Same with the Bulgarians, Romanians, Georgians etc. Makes sense to divvy up the allied response that way.Don’t forget you left out the Russians. They should have some “Advisors”, Spetnaz of course, working with the Greeks. Air units, small craft, subs, more than likely.
I now have an image of Barbara smacking a young George Jr. upside the head while yelling "Stop listening to your Grand-daddy & stop acting like your Daddy! I swear, if you keep that up, I will shoot you myself. It'll save time!"Bush Jr. will either enter the family business, or Barbara will protect him and he goes into legitimate business. Please tell me that the butterfly effect gives him some actual intelligence too.
Always nice to know that a gift has been appreciated & put to good use. And it makes me wonder just how far off in the future the multi-tool is?Kiki could practically hear Berg’s laughter as she found the wire cutters. Berg had told her that she would need them more than she thought and in the very first case Kiki had they were needed. A few seconds later she was cutting the eye off the multi-barbed fishhook and the patient’s reaction wasn’t what she was expecting.
Always good to ask though. Far too many nurses, doctors or, perhaps worse, administrators would pitch several kinds of fits if a qualified visitor on their turf just started treating people. It has something to do with paperwork & legal liabilities, I think.Kiki was here because she had asked to tour the clinics on the island, she just happened to be in this one with only a Nurse Practitioner was on hand and the regular Doctor was elsewhere when the Islander was brought in by his son after a fishing mishap. Kiki had questioned if she was qualified to deal with this because she was barely even an Intern. The Nurse had given her a look and had then told her that this was the real world and she was present where she was needed, so get cracking. Minutes later Kiki was working on extracting the fishhook as the son was watching sheepishly from the doorway. She knew from her time in Korea that the challenge here was keeping the Patient distracted while she worked. Fortunately, he wanted to talk and was focused on Kiki.
German Foreign & Colonial Service training seminar:“Keep it clean, come back if you start feeling tingling in your thumb or if it gets infected” Kiki said as she did her best to flush out the deep puncture wound, that being something that she had told soldiers who had suffered similar injuries in the past. Sometimes they even listened. After the thumb was bandaged, she took off the rubber gloves she looked around for the Nurse. She had said that there were antibiotics on hand in the clinic. If not, Kiki would just write a prescription.
“Perhaps you ought to see to it yourself” The Patient said, “I figure I owe you a drink at the local for this.”
Kiki thought about that invitation for a moment. Since the Empire had regained control of these islands from the Japanese two decades earlier, her father had used them as a vacation spot but had never really gotten to know the people here. Perhaps a bit of socialization with the locals was in order.
“I’ll consider it” Kiki said, “If only to keep an eye on that thumb of yours.”
The Patent seemed happy with that answer.
I get the impression that King Michael's Panzer Corps might be heading a little to the north and/or east in the not too distant future.Lately, Morávek had been one of Michael’s closest advisors as he had worked with Kurt Knispel to modernize the Bohemian Army in creating a second Mechanized Army Corps to compete directly with the vaunted German Panzer Corps. While the Bohemian Panzers clearly lacked the size and scope of their German counterparts, Michael had realized that it didn’t need to. The purpose of the Panzer Corps was to punch a hole in the line and exploit the breakthrough, it was the Infantry’s job to consolidate that opening and give the Panzers room to maneuver. Looked at through that lens, a relatively small, professional Corps was ideal for their needs.
First, dirty pool, but all's fair etc., etc.As Michael took careful aim at the target, Morávek waited until he started to squeeze the trigger before saying. “The protocol office got word that Princess Alberta of England is coming back to Prague this summer. They want to know if you are planning on having any festivities to coincide with the young Lady’s visit.” Causing Michael to miss the target entirely, much to the amusement of his entourage.
This is where we find that Father Lehman is good with gadgets and decised that a single tool with pliers/wire cutters, two knives, a small saw a Phillips and flathead screwdriver would be a good idea.I would not be surprised if Kiki's old friend from Korea Father Lehman showed up running a Catholic Mission clinic on one of the islands.
