    I might ship him 10 empty New Glarus bottles- and let him know how awesome they tasted. :p

    Yes master, I will obey. Frank Mentzer is all I ask. It will be 3 years...

    Hey, does this mean I lose my "Hero" title and it gets replaced with "Melf's bitch"? ;)

    I thought you only got this title after disappearing on a Taco Bell run.

    Hahaha. I forgot about that incident. You are correct- scratch that. I am still Hero, although in my mind- Greek God. ;)

    Hi All,

    Just a quick update. I have gotten into a rhythm here and I do not feel like I am constantly deinking from a firehose. I even get a day off on Sundays usually :D I do feel like I am Bill Murray in Groundhog Day though. It all runs together here- same routine day in and day out. I did have some excitement yesterday courtesy of some chinese rockets dleivered by our friendly neighborhood insurgents. Fortuntely no one was seriously injured at my location. Other bases were not so lucky yesterday.

    Tomorrow I am going to test my running capabilities in a 10 miler. I suspect I will walk for a portion :oops:

    Sounds like fun!! I'm ready for a '10 footer!'

    I've always been sort of a sprinter. :D

    Thank you for serving, Luke. I'm proud to know you. Hey, if you see any of those huge, weird looking desert insects, take a picture! Some of them look even nastier than the stuff your dad dreamed up . . . if that's possible! ;)

    Time keeps ticking along. I am heading home tomorrow for a couple weeks of R&R- travel will take about 2 days all told. I hope to make it back before my wife delivers the newest Gygax :D We are expecting a baby girl, Yasmine Amira. I will post up pics if I have a minute to spare. I imagine I will be pretty busy helping my wife and reconnecting with my 3 year old daughter, Miriam.

    Yes, welcome home for a brief spell. I'm sure your family is most eager to see you again. Congrats on your second daughter! Girls are so much easier than boys (in the early years, anyway)... :D
