07 July 2006, Well, things got a little busy around here in Kabul. We had 4 explosions in two days. First, I want to say I have an alibi and I might be able to scrounge up some witnesses that would say I wasn't involved. Of course, Mrs. Dub may have to increase my allowance this month if it comes to that. Anyway, I can mention these events because, hey, I was getting more current information from Yahoo News on those days than I was from my sources, so if you didn't hear about them, well, you must be here too.
It's been a couple of days since I posted. This is because the unit we are replacing here lost a soldier earlier this week. We are grateful for his service and pause for a moment of prayer for him and his family............
Here at Camp Phoenix they now have connexes for us fortunate ones. Of course, you can't talk, listen to music, walk, snore, watch t.v. or basically anything that might make noise because you might bother someone. Right now I am wearing earbuds. Two reasons, 1. I want to listen to my music, 2. The person behind me isn't using earphones and I can hear their music thru my thin back wall. We also have a self help section here where we can build things. Well, my connex is about 6 1/2 feet wide and 9 feet long. I'm on the top floor. So, I go get a cutting torch, cut a hole in the ceiling, add a stair case, build a second floor that would cover the length of my connex, maybe extend it by one on either side. I should have a pretty nice loft with a really good view. Of course, I have to eliminate the smog and pollution here in Kabul first, but then it would be a nice view. Ok, I think that covers everything except my plans for world domination, but I still haven't worked out the kinks in that plan. Here is a picture of my re-enlistment ceremony. I'm the one with my hand raised, ok, I'm the second guy on the left. Take care and be safe.

Great picture! When it is time to come home, are they going to just ship you and your stuff home in the split-level connex? Sounds like you've got big plans for your new digs. Don't get too comfy over there. I'm glad you can at least spread out and have your own personal space (no girls allowed). I hope they make you keep it picked up, because I can't imagine what it will look like otherwise. Keep your head down and Don't volunteer for ANYTHING!

Laugh! You sound like your brother. He had his entire workshop packed up and ready to go! Not too handy when I needed things for home projects. Stay safe and give us more pictures!
