18 March 2007, Well, a nice quiet Sunday is almost over now. It's been drizzling/raining most of the day. We got our black boxes packed, inspected and placed in the connex this morning. This did open up enough room in my room for another smaller box to go under my bed. Over the next two months I will begin dwindling down my collection of.....well, everything. I'm a pack-rat and I've been in the Army long enough to know that if I don't already have it with me and I need it, the Army won't have any left. So I pack just about everything I can and bring it with me. I was taking out the kitchen sink to at home, but Mrs. Dub caught me and made me put it back.
For a while now I've been wanting to do more with this site but being a procrastinator doesn't help me any. I decided that I would start today, and I did, but Blogger ate the whole post and now I'm starting over. Darn you Blogger!! Here is my new edition.

SUNDAY SHOUT-OUT

Flag Gazer. Flag Gazer has been a true supporter of our troops, both here in Afghanistan and in Iraq. Her site is dedicated to almost entirely the troops. Recently this last week she was interviewed and an article published about her in the Oregonian. You can read it here. Flag Gazer has taken an interest in our mission here too, because she is from Oregon and Task Force Phoenix V has at the control of this mission the Oregon National Guard. A big thank you goes out to her for her support of us and we appreciate you very much.


Brownie Troop 3370. They come from Keller Texas, but just a couple of days ago we received several boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. Lt M has a sister in Keller who just happens to be a Brownie Troop leader. Everyone knows I love eating, even more than exercising. We took a picture to send to them and you can see I've already started enjoying the great taste of the Thank-you cookie they sent me.
Sarge Charlie and Sanni. A few days ago I did a post about a person writing my local newspaper voicing their displeasure with Governor Henry visiting the Oklahoman soldiers here and in Iraq. As you know, we did enjoy his visit tremendously. Well, Sanni and Sarge started doing some research and found Ms. Gralla in Norman, Oklahoma. Sanni felt that Ms. Gralla might have missed the mark just a bit and nominated her for the coveted Yellow Belly Sapsucker Award over at Charlie's place. Sarge couldn't think of any better person that day more deserving and bestowed to Ms. Gralla the award. Although I didn't intend for it to go that far, we have now learned some interesting things about Ms. Gralla. In my earlier post I mentioned asking what kind of education Ms. Gralla had received, come to find out she is a professor at the University of Oklahoma and is the one teaching our younger generations. I guess the joke is on me.
As always, be safe and have a great day.

Don't think the joke is on you, Sarge. This joke will always be on that yellow-bellied sapsucker as she would never do what you're doing, and she has no idea how idiotic she is.

Keep up the good work packing and getting rid of stuff. Wish I could get motivated to get rid of stuff. I'm a pack-rat and procrastinator of the first degree!

I wanted to stop by and thank yo u Dub for always reading the things I write. You are also one of the select few who bother to comment and it always makes my day. Thank you again! Stay safe!

Just because she's a professor doesn't mean she's very smart when it comes to real life. The joke is not, and never has been on you, and don't think that for one minute! She is most deserving of Sarge Charlie's reward!

Great post and I'll have to check out the blog you were nice enough to mention. Don't you hate packing. I always figure if I haven't seen it or needed it for the last 12 months then I no longer need to keep it.

Thank you, Sgt Dub - it is my joy!
