22 January 2007, Let the thaw begin!
Yep, we went all the way up to the 40's today. It felt much nicer between the hours of 11 and 1500. I have my reasons for wanting more cold, more snow, more ice, but I really am ready to get warm again. Especially in my little connex. Oh well, part of the hell of war. Sarge Charlie has been posting pictures of how he had to live in Vietnam and I really have no room to complain. You go back to Korea, and World War II and they would give up so much to live like we do now. Yes, I'm spoiled, but that's not news to anybody. One of the many reasons I'm not Infantry.
I'm also confused on my days, somehow I'm running a day ahead of the rest of the camp, so I'm not sure where I'm suppose to be or when. Luckily, I have so many friends here to help direct me.
As some of you can see, I'm also running behind a little on my posting. As soon as I finish here, I have some more things to take finish. I started this morning by getting chewed out by an anonymous person. He was cold, so he wore his fleece jacket and stocking cap. We had someone make the decision to take name tapes and rank off these outer garments, my thoughts are they were officers and didn't want to be bothered with saluting all the time. We enlisted hate to be an inconvenience to them. Anyway, I might have given the impression I really didn't care, so he wanted to know who he could chew out. I gave up a First Lieutenant. Hey, I only requested certain things, I didn't make them appear. Disclaimer (A. I am very good at laterally transferring certain military items for the good of the Army when needed. B. I have enough sense not to broadcast it by putting it where everyone would see) Anyone needing spare parts to a jeep? Just kidding. when it was all said and done, I got exactly what I asked for, however, towards the middle of the day I actually had more and that would have been better for me and my crew.
Well, I've run out of things to say right now. Be safe and have a good day. For all of you who stop recognizing Monday, Happy Funday.

Laugh! I was watching M.A.S.H. the other night, and Radar O'Reily was mailing a jeep home to himself piece by piece. Just something to think about. :-)

I don't know about you, but it's definetly NOT Funday where I'm at! It was back to school and work. At least with the snow and ice on the ground, I had an excuse for being late. I can't believe anyone would chew you out - you're such a nice guy and I'm sure you didn't do anything to deserve it. It's not like you push buttons or aggravate people. Speaking of Radar, do you want me to send your teddy bear?

Odat said...

Snowy in Illinois today, wish I could have sent you some of that sausage spaghetti! Stay safe & alert. Godspeed my friend.

Glad that it's warming somewhat for you. It has been yucky here in Tennessee for the past week or so... just so thankful we dodged the bullet or 2 bullets I should say of the snow and ice. Was so glad Mrs Dub decided NOT to send it my way.

Stay safe....

Speaking of MASH, I liked the one when Cpl Klinger was eating a jeep, one part at a time.....

Now Sarge, you got to know that the fuzz tail has an ego........sometimes you just have to feed it. Oh, by the way, how much insulation is there in a CONNEX

Stay safe, that is all that counts.

I have caught some shows on the history and military channel that show footage of the European winters in WWII...Wow!

Between growing up as north in Maine as he could without being in Canada and serving in Europe during WWII, it's no wonder why my 84 year-old grandfather laughs at me being cold and on blood thinners in Southern California ;-)

Michael C said...

Oh I forgot in my last comment...thanks for the Funday reference. I'm still working on it...that was for Odat's sake ;-)

Ah..the life of a E-7, I would not know as I never made it past E-4 and was constantly being yelled at by, E-5 through E-8's, although Tops was pretty cool. It is pleasant to find a 7 that is such a good soul. Anyway make it a better one tomorrow, See ya
