So Long!
Thursday, January 4, 2007

So, it's finally happened. I got my call up. You know, you join the military 13 years ago, and you don't expect these things to happen.

I was informed on Tuesday that I leave Saturday for Iraq.

Just when I thought I had some things figured out, too!

Not being in the Army, however, I shouldn't be there all that long. It's just that the timing is horrible. My lease goes up while I'm gone. Both of my children's birthdays happen (as well as mine, but, I can live with that) and I've only been with TWG for 6 months, and then I get called up! (I'll be back in 4 months, before anyone gets any ideas!)

I've really no idea when I'll get to check in or not. But, as always, it's nice puttering around here from time to time. You kids play nice, now!

Thank you MWP for going and doing. Our paths here have crossed only a few times and I don't know if it was ever directly, but even if I didn't know you at all, I'd still want to thank you. We will await your return. I hope they have Pez over there...

You take care.

Best wishes, manwithpez. You'll be in our thoughts and we hope you'll return safely soon.
