      Re: Let's entertain Becky thread!

      Guess where I am....again. Do let me tell you about my day.

      0100 wake up
      0200 formation
      0300 busses arrive for hour drive to 'airport'
      couple hours sit around in a tent
      0645 bus to tarmac (bout 20 minutes, i dunno was sleeping)
      sit for an hour, watch them bring out more seats for plane after an hour and our cargo
      still sitting in bus
      still sitting in bus
      get word of mechanical issues, computer wont communicate with rutter
      wait some more
      told they need busses, they take us back to waiting area and might get a flight at 1100
      find out they meant 1100 zulu which was actually 1400 'our time'
      sit around three hours
      get word its cancelled
      unpalletize duffles and crap
      hottest day over here yet
      oh, and generator went out in the tent they put us in so just got to sit out in the 120 sun all day
      wait for escort to come from buehring to come get us to take us back
      1630 got back to heII, err i mean here

      all manifests done for tomorrow, wont get out tomorrow
      after that we were told a lil something but its all if the moon aligns with a certain star type deal

      GRRRRRRRR oh, and we got back after the sun all day and no water in the female shower trailer GOTTA love it!! there are more trailers but just hte walk to them wasnt worth it

      oh, and living out of one duffle that has all our Jlist in it, just a small portion of clothing and such...were supposed to leave three days ago...now for sure not tomorrow... last day we could turn in laundry was the 9th, handed in duffles and ruck except one on the 10th... pretty much have had close to nothing since

      but other hten that, had a great day :)

        Wow Becky, that's like a "hurry up and wait here in the oven!" Hang in there, I'm sure you'll get out eventually.

        So, (just trying to make lemonade out of your lemons) anything else interesting going on? Usually tough situations will bring about some repressed twist of humor or lesson that you would have never experienced otherwise. Looking back, there's always something hilarious in the middle of my chaos. Sometimes I'm too frustrated to see it while it's happening. LOL

        How's the chow over there?

          Kind of hard to entertain a person when they are having days like that.

            Some of the funniest jokes (according to Readers Digest)
            1. A man, shocked by how his buddy is dressed, asks him "How long have you been wearing that bra?" The friend replies, "Ever since my wife found it in the glove compartment."

            2. In surgery for a heart attack, a middle-aged woman has a vision of God by her bedside. "Will I die?" she asks.
            God says, "No. You have 30 more years to live."
            With 30 years to look forward to, she decides to make the best of it. So since she's in the hospital, she gets implants, liposuction, a tummy tuck, hair transplants, and collagen injections in her lips. She looks great!
            The day she is discharged, she leaves the hospital with a swagger, crosses the street, and is immediately hit by an ambulance and killed.
            Up in heaven, she sees God. "You said I had 30 more years to live," she complains.
            "That's true," says God.
            "So what happened?"
            God shrugs, "I didn't recognize you."

            Hope that helps Becky and where is the double hockey sticks key on a computer keyboard anyhow-for those times you just want to let it all out.

            On a side note heard from my son through Skype and have to say it was like he was in the room with my husband and I. Very nice to actually be able to hear his voice.

              Made it yesterday. It is fricking beautiful here. Well, except the occasional blown up building. Trees, flowers, nice landscape, green, great CHUs, best DFAC ever, great job, roommate still not here so room to self for two nights, got totes and one duffle today, internet in CHU tonight, dorm fridge that doesnt work but i'll get that in a few days... I'm in heaven! Sirens dont go off all that often. Did have an incident day before my PAK got here but nothing too serious. Plane ride was fun. Lots of changed altitudes in short periods of time. Had to stop in Kuwait City to pick up a 3 Star Marine General so got extra flight time. Combat landing was great. Did have four pukers on flight though. lol I'll write more later, its late.

              I'll slowly start working on getting some pics into photobucket. Long work days with other stuff in there needing to get done so it will be a slow process, but i'll git'r done. Did finally move about 60 pics from cam stick to hard drive.

                  Welcome to Iraq, Becky...

                  If you happen to run into a 2LT Karr, tell him that his brother-in-law says hi! :D

                              Considering what soldiers had to live in, in the past, i'm thankful for it!! I honestly dont think there is a better place to be deployed to in Iraq then here. In a way its nice to be with JASG. Actually have it fixed up pretty good and making it better daily. I have a couple more updated pics of it but will save ya'll from it for today. lol Now if I could get rid of these dog sized rats!!! Yikes! The walls of our office (still at next camp over, eventually will be moved to here in palace) has holes in walls from them chewing threw!! And its a well constructed building.

                              Roomie got here today. :( But I set up room so that wall lockers divide it, and if in bed we cant see each other, its like two rooms in one. Just a little area when you walk in that isnt divided. I have a bunch of pillows, two big rugs, my love seat (lol) and a few other things. I'm happy. Someone stole my friggin' chair I found to sit in outside. I'm going on a mission about 3am to get it back and i'm tying it with some 550 cord to a post outside my door. I think a chain with a lock would be too much. :) I have a feeling where it went to, i'll get it back. It was a good find. Found a two seated couch yesterday for our 'party' area at the other end of this line of CHUs. lol
