10 June 2007, I'm home! And in the usual Army standard, 45 minutes early. You would think that would be a good thing, except for the 65 soldiers arriving, maybe 6 families had shown up by the time we got there, so as the families finally started making it there, they realized they were late, but all is good.
We had a great reunion at the airport and then went for breakfast. We have been up for the last 24 hours, the Army planned stuff for us for each hour of the night before so we couldn't go to sleep. After breakfast we came home were I took a nap of about 3-4 hours. Miss Dub and I are planning on seeing a play tonight at the Civic Center called "Wicked" Originally, I wasn't going to be home and the two tickets we have were for Mrs and Miss. We haven't been able to secure a third ticket so Mrs. Dub is going to let us go.
I have a headache from hades from lack of sleep, but all is wonderful. I'll post more and start putting up pictures as soon as I get myself a little more organized back home.
Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Be safe and have a great day.

I just dropped you and MissDub off at the theatre and as I was pulling away the song "My Little Girl" was playing on the radio. It made me cry listening to the words. I hope you guys have a wonderful evening and enjoy your Daddy/Daughter evening!

I hit my link to "Sgt Dub" out of habit, then thought, "Well, that was stupid, like he's going to have the time to post anything." And surprise! Bless your heart!
I just know you're sound asleep right now, after enjoying an evening with Miss Dub! Monday will dawn fresh and new and all of the horrors of war will fade into your memory and a new life begins.
HALLELUJAH!!!

Dear Sir... Welcome back home. Thank you for your time away from your family.
It is with great joy that we now find you back with your family and loved ones.

Now this is the post I was waiting for. You are home and back doing things with your family. So, did the chili dogs that Mrs. Dub made for you, and an adverse impact on Miss Dub? Not a good thing to eat before going to a play.

Happy, happy to you and yours. I am sure all three of you are still doing the happy dance. Oh, has Mrs. Dub given you the "honey dew" list yet? God bless you and yours. :)

Wade Huntsinger said...
