14 January 2007, Late Again.
Wow, guess I'm either getting out more or just getting older and slower. I'll opt for A. We ran to the British Camp tonight for a meeting (code word for dinner) and got back about 1830 hrs (630pm). I had a project to finish up in the office, then called home to see how things were. Mrs. Dub said the next and worst storm this weekend was just now hitting Oklahoma, but everything was still working fine at the moment. I finally made it to my room at 8 pm and decided to get a shower before getting on-line.
Poker was fun, glad it's not my money I'm losing. I didn't last quite as long as I did on the week before, but I'm enjoying it. The weather was a little nicer with temps almost hitting 40 degrees. This melted some more snow and ice and felt much better being outside. I lifted weights this morning. We quite a little early and had Subway for lunch. I found out a little later that the DFAC (dining hall) had fried cheese sticks, so I ended up there a couple hours later to get some, but stopped at only 4 sticks. I typically don't like hot tea, but the British make it so darn good I couldn't resist, and it's not too hot to drink. They had my chocolate milk over there tonight so I ended up buying some to brink back to my room. A well stocked frig is always an essential in a war zone.
I took a reading quiz over at ShadowFalcon's site and some how it made me buy four books at the PX the next day. I picked up classics. Gulliver's Travels, Poems and Stories by Edgar Allen Poe, Moby Dick and The Red Badge of Courage. I will need to get started on these so I can finish them and send them to my daughter to read. She enjoys reading and writing and exposure to actual classics could help.
Here are a couple more pictures from Saturday, enjoy.














Be safe and have a good day.

Glad to know you're back safe and sound. Always glad that I don't know before hand that you're having a "walk about". We're on day 3 of the "big chill" and still doing fine. I just read a great book today that "the bro & sil" sent to us. It's called "E-mail to the Front" by Alesia Holliday. Alesia is a military spouse and it chronicles emails during 2 deployments. I plan to write more about it on my site. I laughed, cried and laughed some more. I can't imagine if I put together all of our correspondence - I guess it would be a comic book. I love you and miss you. Wish you were here to keep my toes warm (he he)

Stay safe and remember that my family is praying for all the brave service men and women.

That is a lot of snow! I should probably stop reading about Presidents and pick up the classics! I just don't know if I could get through them. Happy reading!

Love the pictures, SGT. Hope you're having a decent week at least. Maybe it would cheer you up to play the Saturday Comeback Challenge? You still have until midnight......

Wow! All that snow! Truly beautiful! And I love chocolate milk as well as hot tea (made with two teabags, one sugar and hot milk, no water tastes the best!) although for cold weather hot chocolate is always a winner. Never played poker before, though. Glad you're safe, I love reading your blog!

I'm still awaiting a lil snow here.
This is record breaking weather here in NY this year...It's been up to 70 just last Saturday! Your snow pics are great! If anything, you've got a great view over there.
Peace!
