In case you forgot how, here's a little reminder.
And something to ponder.
The sunsets were outstanding.
Thanks to all who stopped bye and left messages while we were away.
And Mark, who doesn't have a blog, or at least that he's admitting to yet, but shares a common bond of having a son in Iraq.
Who, by the way is home on leave.
I sure hope he enjoys every minute of it. He certainly deserves it.
Mark, if you read this, say thanks to Mark for his service to our country, and tell him that he's in my prayers daily.
I wish him the best of luck, and a safe completion to his deployment.
For a whole week, I got little to no news about Iraq. I'm thankful of that, because the only news I would have gotten would have been bad.
We had a email from Matt when we got home. It alluded to the fact that he is now a gunner on a Stryker. The news was that it was 130 degrees the other day, but where as the Stryker is air conditioned, half of him was cool. The other half was sticking out of the hatch, all sweaty and smelling of exhaust.
I don't think he was standing on his head!!
To be honest, I'd rather he was in the Stryker than a Humvee.
