They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I don?t know who they are, but the obvious unspoken point is that lunch and dinner are only the second and third most important meals. I?m used to two meals a day, honestly. But I hope once I'm home the wife doesn?t mind getting up early from now on to cook me sausage bacon ham eggs pancakes and French toast. That is, if the Air Force has a plane big enough to airlift my fat ass home.
It was a long day here, full of action and excitement. I did laundry. While waiting for the dryer to finish I wandered a bit and found the camp library. Ninety-nine-point-nine percent of the titles were fiction.
Then I returned to the laundry and found the dryer was done tumbling, but the heating element had failed. I put the load into the next dryer and wandered a bit more. And saw an awesome sunset. Hustled to the tent for my camera and returned, a bit too late for the best of it, but now I've got the location and the timing.
By the way, did I say French toast? I meant freedom toast.
Good night America how are you?
I'm good & sleeping soundly at night because of all of you out there doing the tough jobs. Thank you!!!!Posted by Susie in California at October 11, 2004 09:00 PM
Ah, desert sunsets. It's about the only tbing I miss from my tour in the Sandbox.
Glad to learn that you're getting along OK.Posted by SMASH at October 11, 2004 09:22 PM
Awesome sunset shots. And we in the states appreciate what you're doing.
And are you the same Greyhawk who writes on Swiftboats web site?
Cheers to you, bvsPosted by Barbara C. Van Sittert at October 11, 2004 09:48 PM
I am doing well thanks to y'all over there. We all love you and support you. God Bless.
Nice Pictures. Did you know a man in MO. changed his name to They?
"They said he did it for humor to address the common reference to "they." '"They do this,' or 'They're to blame for that.' Who is this 'they' everyone talks about? 'They' accomplish such great things. Somebody had to take responsibility," he said."
Wehn i read your post it made me think of the story.
Glad to see you're eating well and enjoying the sunsets. Be safe. We're with you 100%Posted by Kathleen A at October 12, 2004 01:12 AM
Right now I'm trying to get a group together and travel to Florida on Nov. 2nd to keep an eye on the prison and dead vote...;-)Posted by Rightwingsparkle at October 12, 2004 01:43 AM
Thank you for all you are doing to keep us safe. My grandsons say "ditto."Posted by Asteroid Bill at October 12, 2004 02:18 AM
Beautiful sunset. Keep sending pictures, please. Be safe, sir.
I remember standing on the beach at Qui Nhon and wondering whether the east coast of 'Nam would replace the Riviera someday. ... It hasn't yet. ... Here's hoping Iraq turns out better. At least there isn't an "Iraq Veterans Against The War" making rude noises yet. (We haven't forgotten, Jean Fraud. And we won't.)Posted by Bill Faith at October 12, 2004 04:38 AM
We are warm and safe here in Texas,thanks to good people like you. The only time that breakfast is eaten in our household is at 3am when we get home from work. Anything earlier than this is uncivilised!Posted by diana at October 12, 2004 07:16 AM
We're all doin' pretty well, thanks to ya'll over there!!
BTW - have any good tips on getting beer out out of a laptop. The line about trying to find a plane that will get you home, really struck me funny! :) And I'd be willing to bet you could probably as for anything your heart desires for breakfast when you get home. Mrs. GH seems like one hell of a lady!!! (it's so very nice to meet her via her writing!)
Stay safe, stay focused. We're praying for ya.Posted by Tammi at October 12, 2004 12:27 PM
Maybe the plane they call the City of New Orleans will be big enough to get you off the ground. Did you ever get your cloths dry? Love the pics. Please post more! My thoughts and prayers are always w/you guys.Posted by LynnGunn at October 12, 2004 03:06 PM
Missing you but your better half is doing GREAT!:)
Take care and be safe,
Thanks and God bless you.Posted by Julie Heath at October 12, 2004 10:50 PM
We are sleeping safe and sound thanks to you brave souls. There isn't enough we can say to thank you.
I can only pray those who express their freedom of speech you so selflessly protect could be so appreciative.Posted by cheryl at October 13, 2004 12:15 AM
Read your comment about the library. If any of that material is paperback historical fiction with a DWB printed near the binding, well you can figure out the rest.
What would you like to read, assuming you have the time? I have a limited number of books on the Civil War (Bruce Caton, et al) and more on WWII, and would be glad to send them.
Thank you for what you are doing.

Our island on the Korean DMZ would have okay sunsets, but when the tops of the cloud layer hung about 10 meters BELOW our mountain top, then we'd find ourselves standing on a tiny, dark island in a sea of cloud, stretching away as far as the eye could see...
And as far as the eye could see, mornings like that were brilliant, moving from blood-red to deep radiant golden... then the clouds would rise and we'd be plunged into mediocrity again...
Standing duty on Freedom's Front Line? Find the beauty and find the friends... that's the American way!Posted by Carridine at October 24, 2004 07:11 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(17) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
