25 August 2006, well, it’s almost Friday again. See what I mean about them coming around so quickly, seems like only last week we had one. All is well here, the weather is sitting around 90 during the afternoon and it’s almost fall like after 1700 hrs. I’m adding some pictures to this one, nothing spectacular or anything.


Why am I smiling? Look at the menu.

This is the airport road that leads from the…uhm.. airport to Masoud Circle. This is by far the best road in Kabul, notice the nice asphalt road, the lane striping and even light poles on both sides. It doesn’t get any better here.

Masoud Circle, is a tribute to Masoud, to most of Afghanistan he was considered a hero that stood up against the Taliban, to some here, he was just another warlord. However you look at him, he was considered a threat to his enemies and was assassinated two days prior to 9/11.

Mrs. Dub said I needed to describe my days events more for everyone at home. Well, working in an office there's not much to report and what I can report, well, you don't need men in dark suits and sunglasses showing up at your home. However, with things moving into more of a flow now, I am working on getting out a little more. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Be safe and have a good day.

Does the actual food look anything like the poster? Just remember that it doesn't do you any good to workout and then eat DQ!!! By the way, you do look like you're down to 2 chins - keep up the good work.

The 90's?? That's almost chilly! I'd trade that for a south Texas day anytime!

PS. Stay away from the DQ, that's bad news!

The other day a father went into Toys-R-Us to buy a Barbie doll for his daughter's birthday present. He could not understand the pricing so he asked an employee for an explanation.

"The father said that the Camper Barbie is $29.95, the Cheerleader Barbie is $39.95, and the CEO Barbie is $49.95. So why is the Divorced Barbie a whopping $159.95??"

The employee simply stated, "Well, that's because the Divorced Barbie comes with Ken's house, Ken's car, Ken's boat, Ken's 401K...etc., etc.

Ha! Ha! Keep your head down Dean! Thinking of you man!

Don't tell me you guys got DQ over there?!! What happened to the cruddy food in the chow hall? It's about time you got your butt out of the office and out on the street (just hope it's not so you can sell your body!!). I heard a male friend of yours there is quite popular with the men of the region. Is he booking parties anytime soon? You should start an entertainment company, and he could be the star. I don't think the bossman would mind!! Miss you guys. Things are crazy back here with the mico. Wish you were here to take charge. Take care, Deano!
