Be fruitful and multiply

Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised at the number of posts. Thanks to all of you who have left messages. I have not corresponded with some of you in quite a long time ( Ron M., Wes M., and Bob H., it's good to hear from you again)....and others I have never corresponded with at all. I wish I had the time to reply to each of you individually, but then again, that's the purpose of this blog...so that I can communicate with all of you.

Joey and Michelle - yes I got to watch the Horns win right before I left. They were showing the game in the dining facility, and I literally had to run out and jump on the bus right after Dusty kicked the winning field goal. It was a great time to leave since, at that moment in time, all was well with the world.

Not a lot new here. I went to the range today to re-zero my weapon. It took about 45 miniutes to get there, and after about the first 5 minutes I had seen all there was to see. Flat and sandy for as far as the eye can see. I did get to see a wild herd of camels (is it a herd or a pack? I know if one is referring to the brand of cigarettes its definitely a pack, but I'm not sure about the actual animal). They really are strange looking things.

Did I mention that tourism is not a big industry here?

Take care,
j

Well Joey, I saw the UT game as well, a real nail bitter. Great game and John, everything WAS right with the world until... beings I'm from Oklahoma, everything in the world went to crapp in a hurry. Don't worry I'm scheduled to finish therapy next week...
It's really good to hear from you. I'm checking your blog (whatever that means) often. Stay safe and let us know all about your vacation (sandy beaches minus the clear ocean water. Right?). Claire and I and the girls are looking forward to seeing you again at home safe and sound.
We're praying for you.

1.06.05 - Checking in again. Wanted to let you know we were thinking of you.

Went to look at a new computer tonight. Probably buy one tomorrow. Setting the studio back up. Send you new tunes as they progress.

Found a bullet on the ground in the parking lot today. Did you want me to send it to you or do you have plenty? I recall the comment the soldier made to "Rumsy". Want to make sure you have all of the tools you need to get the job done.

"Give 'em heck!" (this is a family channel folks!)

Hi there John! I guess you are in the heat of things, so just letting you know we Love you and continue to pray for your safety. Wanted to drop you a line to ask for a mailing address so if someone wants to send you a feel good package, we know where to send it. Do you know how long it would take to arrive? I look forward to your next post!

( I don't know how this post thing works, so I moved this from you last one. Is this the right thing to do, or do you check the other one?)
