21 march 2007, Happy New Year!! It's the Afghan New Year, and what year is it? 1386 as of today. We saw up to a thousand on the hillsides in Kabul today as they celebrated.
In other news, we had a thunderstorm last night. This was indeed exciting. You have heard me say it has rained, and rained, but that's all we get. Last night, we had lightening, thunder, crackling, and booming, it was refreshing and enjoyable. Today was clear and absolutely beautiful. In was so nice in fact that LT R and I went over to Subway and picked up lunch, then ate it on the outside deck there. We are office rats and don't' get to enjoy much sunshine. No offense Mimi.
I have been selected by two individuals, Mimi and Sarge Charlie to receive the Thinking Blogger Award. This was indeed an honor and I appreciate that so many come here. I will be addressing this more fully tomorrow and make my selection of those who get me to thinking.
I slept so well last night that I refused to get out of bed to go to the gym, so I will definitely have to go there tomorrow morning. Somebody make sure and place a wake up call to me.
Be safe and have a great day.

CHECK IT OUT . . . March 21st Daily Oklahoman (Your Views), page 11A has published 3 responses to Shawn Gralla's comments regarding the Governor's visit. SPC Benjamin E. Walcutt, Camp Phoenix, Afghanistan, Kelly Pindel, Norman OK and Maj. L.D. Johnson, U.S.A.F. (Ret). from Mustang, OK all sent in awesome responses! That's pretty good, 3 to 1! Glad you had a good day - it's always nice to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. How do you tell the difference between thunder and explosions? I don't think I'd be sleeping through that!

Happy New Year, Sgt!

Good to know that you're having good weather and that you had a good night's sleep.

So... don't forget to go to the gym, okay? Have a great day, Sgt.

I used to be scared to death of thunderstorms, but once I became a mother, I actually started liking them. I respect them and their power, and I love the "cleansing" feeling that happens after one comes roaring through.

Get a good workout for me, would you? I gotta hit the gym myself. Probably would help me get over this darn illness!

It is obvious that you are a double deep thinker, most deserving of an award.

Happy new year, careful, I remember the Vietnamese New Year of 1968.
