Lookin' good


What is it about people in uniform that makes us all want to turn and look at them?

When The Professor and I headed down to Annapolis Friday, we didn't realize it was the U.S. Naval Academy graduation day for over a 1,000 graduates.  Fortunately, when we arrived in the afternoon, the ceremonies were over but there were still a lot of uniforms walking the streets.

They seemed to capture the spirit of the day.  Youth, confidence, promise.  Lots of good energy!


Needless to say, I couldn't resist my own stares.  Even the woman below has to sneak a peek.  Just something about uniforms.


They just look so damn good!



By the way, I'm lovin' this long weekend .... how about you?

These photos are very cute! Love the way the girls in the first photo are in la-la land over the men in uniforms. They seem to be enjoying it too!

I grew up on an army post and have loved men in uniform my whole life, which is why I married one! :-))

That first picture is to funny. The girls are really into the guys walking by! Looks like they're eying the ladies too. Yes, there's something about a man in uniform. Even the UPS man on occasion ; )

They are all very eye catching aren't they? Especially in the white! Our long-weekend was last Monday in Canada ~ but thankfully ~ I took today off as a holiday. Long weekends are the best aren't they?

Hope you are having a good one Reena!

We were born and raised near Great Lakes Illinois and we always saw the men and women in uniform, especially on graduation weekend. I still love to see them.

It's a quiet weekend for us...next weekend is graduation weekend and that will be a very busy weekend.
