Update

Just a short one. I am trying to type updates back at the "house" and bring them to the internet to send, but I keep getting further and further behind schedule.

Everyone is fine. MSgt Radke will be coming back here from Ramadi in the next day or so, and Gy Ellis and SSgt Walsh will be going over there. Should be back in a week or so.

Everyone got out yesterday on a big operation; up at 0015, left bast at 0230, and started our mission at about 0400. Damn, were we tired when we got back at 1200 yesterday. Thank God for Motrin.

Will tell more later; very interesting stepping back into the Stone Age and then writing about it on the internet.

P.S. Absurd moment of the day (and some days it is hard to pick):

In in one home, there was a wall with two clocks. Not identical, but two cheap, crappy plastic clocks, with that faux-gold finish that stars to flake off after about a week. Both we prominantly mounted, 3/4 of the way up the wall, one towards the right corner, the other towards the left. The one on the right read 6:10, the one on the right read 6:50. Neither time was right.

A 'short note' is FAR better than nothing so thank you for the update Maj P!

Good to hear from you!

Your PS sounds like some sort of metaphoric symbolism, the meaning yet to be determined.

Sounds like the clocks here at home in my classroom at your old school Major Peterson. I would say just about every clock we have is set to a different time. The question is who is responsible teachers, students, administrators, or just dead batteries?
