I thought I might start a new blog for the 150th.
One where I would search other blogs for interesting subjects, and then interview the writers for my material.
I'm still working out the logistics of that. It might still be on the horizon.
Then I thought of making it a tribute to Matt, and other soldiers who were, are, or will be deployed.
I will probably still do that at some point. But not now.
After all of the time off, and with all of the work I have awaiting me getting three houses ready for a New England winter, Mom's, which is on the market, mom's next door, and ours, it becomes easy to loose my train of thought.
So I guess I'll post a few of my favorite pics for all to peruse, and then get on with the day.
My favorite is of Matt, and three of his comrades as they watch their replacements at work.
Spc Lee and his beautiful wife Jodi.
Then there's Spc Keith Lee who is a buddie of Matt's, but wasn't in his platoon. I got to comunicate with Keith from time to time, and enjoyed his insight. Keith lost his dad while he was deployed. A sad time for all.
Keith in a fire fight. Pictures don't do this particular situation justice I'm sure.
Trouble on route Barley.
Matt's bed. "Only for a couple of weeks" he said.
I don't think I'll complain about my mattress for a while.
Thank to those of you have checked back often enough to find this latest blathering.
Don't forget to say a prayer for all those still serving in harms way.
And, thank a veteran for his service to our country.
