07 January 2007, Well, it's been a good weekend so far. As I mentioned in my comments from last post, I chose to go play poker. Actually, I chose to just stay in my room, but LT S called and told me to get over there. The tournament was Texas Hold'em. Last night wasn't a "points" night, so just mainly for fun and some prizes. Out of the 65 players last night, I finished somewhere around 45th. Really not bad, since just getting to know the flow of the game at the table was half of my time. I lasted about 45 minutes and was then able to bow out (I lost all my chips) and head back to my room.
CPT C and I went to the gym this morning and lifted weights. That felt pretty good. the day went well and the time continues to pass at a good pace for us. My Air Force personnel are in their short-timer status now, and feel it necessary to rub it in frequently.
I guess everyone feels the need to rub it in some, the Dub girls hooked up the horse trailer yesterday and went shopping at Tractor Supply. I know that doesn't sound like much, but remember guys love stores like Home Depot, Lowe's, and guys with land like Atwoods and Tractor Supply. To own a couple hundred acres and have the horses and livestock to go with it would be great. With just my 5 acres right now, my chores at home this summer will hopefully include building a barn, welding together a pipe and cable fence , interior pipe fencing for the arena and runs, and setting the floor for the arena so the girls can practice barrels and poles. And I'm ready to get started. I just wish I wasn't losing so much time from the spring when the weather gets nice. Guess I'll just work with what I have.
All was quiet in Kabul today and the weather is hanging around 35 degrees mark much of the week. At least the sun is out. Well, be safe and have a good day.

It does pop up every couple of weeks or so. I've watched it a couple of times and do enjoy it. My favorite time playing poker was back in 1984-85 while I was at college. I worked at a country club and once a month we would have an all night game on a saturday night after work till about 9 the next morning.

The Dub girls wish you were here to get busy. Yesterday was spent assembling the roundbale feeder (which was really heavy) and then mending fences. The horses (like everyone) feel that the grass is always greener on the other side and therefore the fence suffers. The companies you "sponsor" should be paying you a commission for all the good (and free) advertising you're giving them. I'm looking forward to the day when you're gloating because you're coming home! Keep you're chin up, we're in the downhill slide :}

Sounds like you'll have plenty of work to do when you get home, and I'm sure you'll do it all happily since it means you are home!
