Extraordinary, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. Extraordinary is their daily lives, compared to ours. And how little thought we give them. For Photo Friday.

I don't have a picture of Soldier Boy in full regalia, except when he was younger.

He's down in Alabama now studying for his new assignment.

Alabama???? Who'ed he piss off?

I never did hear from him so I assumed he didn't need a conservative pen pal, but I'm still proud of him and all he does.

You need to get a picture of him all dolled up and ready to kick ass.

He's one TOUGH-looking dude, let me tell you (and not just tough-looking . . . )

My guess is that he was overwhelmed trying to keep up with a wife and three kids stateside and duties in and out of the green zone, and supervision duties . . . by the time he got home, it prolly slipped his mind (to say nothing of all the catching up he had to do.)

He said it was REALLY HOT in Baghdad! Sometimes up near 140!

I guess whatever he needs to learn next he has to learn in Alabama?
