Another post...

Well, thank you all to those who keep showing your support to my brother and I! Thank you!

Another post...well, that's about all this is. I really don't have much to say right now. I'm kinda waiting on something to hit me. I'd love to write about flyin squirrels and how much I like them and how much they make me happy everytime I see them, hear them, or think about them. Flyin squirrels are just that incredible. I would say I love talking to them, but then you'd think I'm just crazy...I mean, how many people do you know that have flyin squirrels? Well, I guess I'm the first. And I love mine. She's great!! She's cute and cuddly, sweet and adorable...yep, I know, it's weird, but I love her. Any-who....I miss my dog too. If you kept up with the post for some time now, I talked about how I couldn't wait to go home and take my dog to Lowe's. Well, we did that. More than once. I think one day I just went there with him to walk around...we just looked at whatever for about an hour. He enjoyed it though. He always does. We went to Taco Bell, got our drinks, and headed to the house. One day I think he got a lot more than he bargained for. We went to Lowe's to start the day, went to my mom's work to see her...he likes going there too I think....where else did we go....oh we went to see an old friend. One of my best friends from high school...the girl that talked me into taking him from the vet she worked at so he wouldn't have to go to the pound....then...hmmmm I can't remember but we ended up at a cookout around 5pm and didn't leave till about midnight. I let him play in the yard of the people's house we went to. The kids loved him and he loved them too...but I'd say by the time we got home that day he was happy to be home. He's such a good dog though. My dad lets him go to town with him sometimes so he gets to go out and about once in a while. What can I say, I love my dog.

John is still at home...his ankle is giving him a lot of trouble believe it or not. I'm not sure why he hasn't posted anything on here...wait, he's not really living it rough right now...I mean, how many people want to hear about him eating good food, showering, going to the bathroom, getting dressed, and hanging out ALL IN THE SAME BUILDING. Yeah, pretty much all those things I just mentioned...they are done in roughly 5 different places....but that's ok. It's Iraq. What else can I say.

The election: Not happy, but I have a new Commander in Chief. And...I have to do what he says. Period. Due to regulations and restrictions, that's about all I can say. We'll see how it goes....we'll see.

We are counting the days to coming home. I can't say when I'll be going home for security reasons, but we are counting. Now, some people count since day one, but for the most part there's a pretty significant starting point to really start counting...and we're counting. Hopefully I'll be home in time to see some snow and go snowboarding. I'm really looking forward to that...hopefully. Speaking of snow...I hope we don't see any over here...well, no I take that back. That would pretty neat. I know it won't accumulate, but it would still be cool. Someone asked what the weather is like over's not too bad right now. The days top out about 75-ish and it gets around 50-ish at night. Just cool enough to get a little chill in the morining when I walk to and from the bathroom to shave and brush my teeth. And I seem to walk a little quicker coming from the shower....but that's ok. It's not 140 degrees. I'm good with that. We did have a little bit of a wet period already. It rained off and on for about a week and half when I got back from R&R. That wasn't too too pretty. Mud everywhere. We really believe that it rains mud. You would really think that it was little mud drops and not just rain coming down. Someone also asked what my favorite country artist is...I'd have to say it's a pretty close run between Rascal Flatts and Toby Keith. Althouh, I have several artists that I really like. There are a number of songs that I really like by different people. It was weird being home and turning on the radio and not knowing any of the music they were playing. I had to download the top 40 and start listening to it when I got back over here. It's amazing how quickly you can get disconnected from the world over here. We watch a lot of news. That's one thing that I can say, I've never really been more up to date with what's going on in the world. I could have actually debated with someone over the election and knew what I was talking about. Kinda like, there was over 8 million or was it billion raised for propostion 8 in California. WHICH...I'm not sure what I can about that either, but I'm really happy with the outcome of that issue. People didn't know that there were actually two other states that had that on the ballot. Utah and Arizona I think... I could be wrong on that detail...but I do know there were two other states...both had the same outcome as California. One thing that I was happy to hear pass was an issue where I live in TN. The city I live in passed liquor by the drink. I'm happy about that too. We won't have to travel so far to get a decent drink with dinner now. Cool. AND people will stop complaining when they eat in our restaurants about not being able to get a drink....but it will be confusing because the city I work in doesn't have liquor by the drink...but the two cities on each side do....oh well.

Well....enough about that...see, I just had to turn on the music and it got my mind going. I hope you've enjoyed the post. Please feel free to comment by clicking on the link below. THANKS!! Comments keep us going and help us realize that people actually enjoy our posts.

I love you all and I'll write something on here again soon! And don't forget...flyin squirrels are GREAT! And I love them! They keep me smiling!!

you know that if John did post it would probably be all about the time he is spending with freedom and his precious princess Courtney.
It sure has turned cold here in the states and can you believe the year is almost gone??
Keep your chin up and eyes open and we will see you again soon.
flying squirrels are pretty cool.
