14 June 2006, Well, I got off the phone with Mrs. Dub this morning. Things appear to be good at home. However. Mrs. Dub said I need to be blogging everyday. Now, this is a lot of writing and thinking of things to say. Of course, I don't know of too many people who would think I didn't have something to say. Back to Mrs. Dub. For those of you who know me and my lovely wife, you know I run a very strict household, so when she told me what I should be doing I, of course, had to respond with "yes ma'am". Now, I'll tell you that we have been together now for 15 years and will celebrate our 15th anniversary this coming December. During those years we have had great years, good years, fair years and maybe one or two bad years. Through it all she has done a fine job of putting up with me. Thanks dear.
Well, yesterday I became a certified Combat Life Saver. My advice, don't get hurt. I did my IV stick on the first shot to my victim and the doctors said he may live thru it. I guess if I want to keep my certification up till I get out of the Army I only need 8 more volunteers. SGT T, I saw your hand go up!
Today is just another day of waiting around, I'm doing a little bit of laundry and goofing off on the internet. I got to make a run to Starbucks and Quizno's. We justify these trips by saying we may not get another chance until we get back, but when I stop to think about it, Camp Phoenix now has a Green Bean Cafe and a Subway deli. I've heard Camp Phoenix will be hard to recognize and this only means changes for the better. I really didn't think I had it bad the last time and I still consider it almost better than my time here in Mississippi. I say almost, because even Mississippi has indoor plumbing, (in most places).
Well, I should wrap this up for now. I hope everyone has a good day.

Hey Dean,

I was just informed that you have been "blogging." I have heard the term but never tried it out because I place the word "blog" in the same category as "quiche" and "bling." The word just sounds creepy and like something you would only do when nobody was around and you knew you wouldn't get caught. Ha! Take care and will stay in touch.

Hey, Dean-
Great hearing you are behaving yourself. This blog is such a great idea and thanks for taking the time to keep us all up on how you are. On those IV sticks-practice, practice, practice! Surely you can get lots of volunteers! Take care!

Not much going on around here -- just hot, hot, hot! MissDub is having a great time at camp and MrsDub is ready to have the clan back together again. Everyone knows I don't like being alone. I must say that I'm glad I'm not there to watch you do your "last minute" packing -- that makes me really nervous! Don't forget to send B-day wishes to your M-I-L on the 16th, and Happy Father's Day to you! What would you like for your gift???? Perhaps an Honorable Discharge and a return flight home???? Love you and Miss you Terribly!!
