03 January 2007, Up to old tricks.
It's not an accurate title as the event I'm about to discuss happened last week. MAJ M stopped by and ask if I could make him a window frame for his office. You see, he doesn't have a window. What he had in mind was he had ordered some posters of scenic areas that he wanted to hang in front of his desk so that when he looked up it would be like looking out the window at something wonderful, instead of looking at plywood walls. Well, if you know me, it was something I would be happy to do. It took me about 3 hours over two days to get finished. Now MAJ M also mentioned that he didn't have any posters yet, but they would be here in a couple of weeks. Being the extraordinary soldier that I am, I decided to fix this problem for him too. I finished the frame and hung it on his wall, was able to construct a cardboard backing that would allow easy change of the posters, and had a picture placed inside the frame already. Let me share it with you now.


Well, MAJ M liked it or at least that it was funny enough to keep it up until the posters arrive. My next mischievous act, well, did I mention that LTC Y went on leave earlier this week. His office is completely defenseless, of course, he did manage to tell everyone I was not to be allowed anywhere near it. (Insert evil laugh here)
I have to say 1SG R is keeping a close eye on me and watching my every move.
I've decided to build myself a clothes hamper for the end of my desk. This will help out some in the room. That and getting some packages mailed out. I may try that tomorrow, although I have said that for about 13 days straight now. I did find out that the algebra class I'm considering taking doesn't start till the 16th of January, so I can put that off a little longer.
These are just some of the things that makes Mrs. Dub roll her eyes at me and also wanting to roll my head across the room. I heard in Saudi it's customary to leave a building or house unfinished. Apparently you don't pay taxes on the house until it is completed, so the house will be lived in for 30 years, but have scaffolding up to a second story window that only looks into an attic anyway, with trim left off that window. My kind of town, as this is typically my trade mark signature anyway. It also drives her crazy.
Not much really to report on today, we are staying safe, and just complaining about the cold temps. I'm the guy who wants to do six months in the Antarctic region because I think it's the coolest looking ribbon. I mean really, six months here, or six months there....not much difference to me.

Be safe and have a good day.
