Too close for comfort....

Well hello to all again! Like always, I want to thank everyone for your support to my brother and I and also all the other men and women fighting over here! THANK YOU!

First and most important: please say a special prayer for the Soldiers and their families of those over here. I can't say why, but there are people in special need tonight. Thank you.

We are about to enter a "bad" time of the year. Forgive me if I spell this wrong....but Ramidad is about to start. It's a month long religious fasting period that means a lot to them...Forgive me, I'm a Southern Baptist/Contemporary Christian so I'm not too up on that particular religion. All I know is that it raises issues with the safety of our Soldiers over here. It's pretty dangerous time of the year from what I understand. So please keep us in your prayers.

Well....it's one of those days...if I tell you, I'll have to kill you....sorry. Sorry to put you at such suspense like that....I know, you probably don't like it and all, but there are rules to what I can put on here. What I can say is....hmmmm how do I put this.....think about the Fourth of July and you're out in your yard shooting off fireworks...you know the ones that go in the tubes..."mortars fireworks"....well if you're anything like me and my buddies we see how many we can light and drop in the tubes at one time. This requires us to be REALLY close to them and we usually don't get to enjoy the show because we're too busy lighting stuff on fire.... Well, have you ever been in "that front yard" where one of the tubes falls over and one comes blasting your way?? Too close for comfort right? Yeah, too close for comfort, I don't care who you are. Well....let's just say that tonight, I re-lived that whole pucker factor you get when stuff is just too too close for comfort. He bro, it reminded me of shooting stars....two shooting stars....yeah TOO close for comfort. I'll remember this story and it's one that you can ask me about when I get home and I'll easily tell it....ok that's it, I can't say anything more.

Well...we'll see what tomorrow brings! Hopefully something exciting but not quiet as exciting as today. Sometimes "you have to be careful of what you ask for"....I know I know.....one day I'm bored as a.....hmmm...uh..nothing comes to mind...I was bored...just waiting for something to happen.....now I'm pulling on the ropes saying "WHOA!" There I go again....sorry. Well, there are a few things coming up in the somewhat near future that I won't tell about yet....I'm looking forward to it, but I'll keep it a secret for now....

I love you all!! Keep the comments coming. We greatly appreciate them so so much! They are the fuel for our thoughts and ideas of what to write on here. You know, that's a good idea. If you write us a comment and have a question that you want to ask, feel free. Anything to what 125 degrees feels like, does it rain here, do we ever get shot at, do we ever leave the base, what's the food like, how does it feel to only be able to drive 25mph for 12 months....whatever you want to know, ask it and if I am allowed to answer I will. And I'm sure John will try to answer anything too.

ok ..... so driving 25 miles an hour .... will that cause you to have road rage when you get home and want to drive super fast or on one wheel?? because I think that 25MPH is good for you ... LOL
so how has your weather been?
What kind of food do you eat over there? is there McDonald's?
Do you know what it cost to eat at McDonald's in Cozumel, Mexico .... EXPENSIVE!! Your dad had a Big and Tasty and I had a kids Cheeseburger meal and it was $10.00
The cruise was great and there are other places to check out throughout the world.
As for the pool .... sorry you could not use it but now it is getting late in the season and we will enjoy it next year in your back yard. John did not set his up either but for different reasons. It sure sounded like a great idea for a little fun. Again sorry that it just did not work out.
Love you you both
MOM
