You might reach your life's destination better if you remember
TOMORROW IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE.  COMES TO US AT MIDNIGHT, VERY CLEAN.  WHEN IT ARRIVES IT IS PERFECT.  IT PUTS ITSELF IN OUR HANDS.  IT HOPES WE LEARNED SOMETHING FROM YESTERDAY - John Wayne

OUR HOUSE IS CLEAN ENOUGH TO BE HEALTHY AND DIRTY ENOUGH TO BE HAPPY


DUTCH ADM. MAARTEN TRUMMPT
CLEAN SWEEP is a naval term that came to us from the 1650's Anglo-Dutch naval war.  Dutch Admiral Maarten Trumpt, after a decisive victory over the British, hung a broom from his mast to indicate he had "Swept the British from the Seas". The British Admiral promptly tied a whip to his mast claiming he would "Whip the Dutch".  Evidently the Dutch were the most convincing as brooms are still hoisted to claim victories and no one ties up a whip.


CLEANING YOUR HOUSE WHILE THE KIDS ARE STILL GROWING IS LIKE SHOVELING THE WALK WHILE IT IS STILL SNOWING - Phyllis Diller


PAMPANITO SS 383
Broom on the mast 
World War II submarines would fly a broom at the mast returning from their 45-60 day patrols if they had sunk every enemy ship they engaged.  All volunteer crews had the most dangerous duty with the highest death tolls.  The 70 enlisted and 10 officer crews lived in very restricted areas, with the men sharing bunks, with 3 toilets, 2 sinks and 2 showers.
Although I have never served aboard a submarine, I have visited aboard several.  My ship, the USS YUMA ATF94 once towed one from San Francisco to Pearl Harbor, a rough ride for 11 chiefs on the towed sub.

THEY'RE SURE HOUSEWORK WON'T KILL YOU, BUT WHY TAKE THE RISK


Commander Dudley "Mush" Morton and his crew aboard the SS Wahoo were he most deadly.  A sub carries torpedoes, has a 102mm deck gun, a 20mm anti-aircraft gun, a .50 caliber machine gun and small arms.  Most subs returned to base when they used all their torpedoes.  Not "Mush".  He would surface among a convoy, guarded by destroyers, and use his deck guns.

LET EVERYONE SWEEP IN FRONT OF HIS OWN DOOR AND THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BE CLEAN - Johaan Wolfgang
