11 December 2006, I'm a bad blogger. Last Friday, we had a bazaar on camp where we allow local Afghans come onto camp with the goods they sell. DVDs, CDs, fur coats, jewelry, marble chess sets, cups, bowls, old rifles, swords, clothing, everything you could need in a country. Well, I finally went down with my camera and took pictures to share. My only problem is I downloaded them on the office computer and I'm in my room. Now, it's after dark, and my office is almost 100 yds from here, so the inherent danger (I'm just too lazy) is just to great for me to risk, I will just have to remember again tomorrow to get them.
This morning we went to the running track for my morning PT. We did a 2-mile circuit training. With the temperature at 34 degrees and 4 laps around the track, I'm wiped out. The deep cold air hitting the lungs is grueling. Every time I got out of my chair my first 3 steps were a limp. My knees are what they were when I was running cross-country track. Overall it was a decent workout. We are suppose to be back out there Wednesday for a run. What's that word I'm looking for?.....yeah.
I told you I skipped Ab Lab Saturday night and avoided one of my LTs. Well, I talked with LT. S the next day and he described how he had got a mat for each of us and then waited in the circle for me to show up. He mentioned people would come up and he would tell them "this spot is saved" and I never showed up. I couldn't help but laugh at the picture I had in my head. I think he got me back today. I had to brief LTC Y and my slides were all messed up. Of course, Y and I go back several years and he thinks this is just par for the course with me. I muddled through it the best I can, and later in the brief, another LT takes his turn to find my good slides on his brief. To which I tell LTC Y, "I found my slides Sir"
Not much else to report today, be safe and have a good day.

Hey "Pooh Bear" I do see some resemblance! Although I always thought of you more like "Tigger" grrrrr. You should be careful trying to fit your large frame into a tiny hole. I guess we all know what we're getting for Christmas . . . hum, something from the bazaar. I know there will come a day when I can wear my burka and serve tea from my marble tea set while seated on my gold bedspread. I think that's so sweet that he saved your mat for you - next time you better show up for class, but don't eat chili before you go.

Running at 34 degrees is the best time of the year to run. That way you don't over heat. Get me a sword and I will pay you for it.
Be careful bro.
