    just got a lot closer.....

    i was on pre deployment leave till tuesday. drove eveything i own to boise id and then to eugene or and dropped it off at my folks house.

    flew into san diego on monday night, hit the bar, went back to the barracks and then to work the next morning..... it was gonna be a long day, i could already tell... 2 hours sleep, a fifth of whiskey thenight before.... yeah, long day....

    so i announced it... eveyrbody looked at me like iw as silly and then agreed with big grins on thier face... the reason is about a week ago tuesday, while i was on leave, my unit found out they were going to have to trade me to another unit because some dumba$$ couldnt keep the sex to just his wife and decided to bring in a woman from the squadron. so, in order to remove HIM from the situation i am now deploying with a unit i know nobody at, and leaving monday/tuesday time vice around the 23rd of september.

    so, lets see here, in the past 6 months i have moved 4 times, transfered 2 units, tried to give the divorce my cheating wife wanted to her to get "im going to contest it" as an answer, evicted my rentor and have nobody i the house as of any time soon, and killed my dually....

    this is the second night for me that i have been sober... in like 8 months, i have a headache because i dont have any alcohol in my system, i have no ride because i left my dodge in oregon, and i have to mail a ton of clothes back because the chriteria of items to be taken to iraq with the unit im with now is 180 out from what i was going with....

    i guess the only real good thing that has happened to me is i bought my dodge 2 months ago.... and cant drive it.

    all i can say is this, 2 years, 2 montsh and 11 days. then im a "free" man.

    ill be on a couple of times here and there before i leave, but once im gone it will be few and far between.
    yu guys an gals are great. see ya when i get back.
    Grant

    I tip my glass to you. I hope things are better when you get back. If nothing else, think of it as a little break from the BS.

    BTW, isn't there a law or an act that prohibits creditors from collecting debt while you're deployed?

    Yes, please take care and come home in one piece /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    I second Shaggy's sentiment -- give us a mailing addy and I will send you some cookies!

    I sent some over to one of Bubba's friends and I think he survived my baking /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Makes me think of this Shakespear quote.

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
    Or close the wall up with our English dead!
    In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
    As modest stillness and humility;
    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
    Then imitate the action of the tiger:
    Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.
    William Shakespeare, "King Henry V", Act 3 scene 1

    Take care, and watch your ass!

    BTW, thanks for serving. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
