Left for Afghanistan on New Year's day 2010. Told the wife I'd be back by the 4th of July. One thing lead to another and ended up staying a little longer. Well, last week (Turkey Day to be exact) I finally made it back to US soil. So far the wife hasn't told me to shave......but I'm sure it's coming. Gas prices have sure gone up. Now I don't have to get up in the middle of the night to watch football!!!! And unlimited bandwidth!!! Jet-lag is kicking my butt. Hope to meet some of you fine folks in the coming months.
