Tomorrow is finally Friday, and an exciting milestone for me, as, barring unusual circumstances, I’ll be enjoying the next three Fridays at home on R&R.  To say I’m excited is an understatement.  I’ve been looking forward to this leave for … about 214 days or so.  It couldn’t come early enough.


I’m finishing tying up loose ends here and making sure things will run smoothly in my absence.  Fortunately I’ve already been doing a lot of delegating, which means that things will run much the same as they have been in many areas, except I don’t get the credit for other people’s work as much.  Hey, it’s nice when the people working for you are really smart, hard working folks, like I’m blessed to have!


I’ll continue the Kerry-bashing from my previous post and note that the chow hall has run out of (Heinz brand) ketchup.  French fries just aren’t the same without it.  I think I might write a letter to the Senator and see if his wife can help us out.

Hi there. I came across your blog back when you are on Anaconda, which is where I am. I was at Al Asad back in '03, but I am sure it is very different than how you are living. Have a great R&R!
