    Well folks, if you haven't noticed yet, my time here has been less and less lately. Things are quickly coming to a head and I now have less than a week at home, I leave next Friday morning. They tell us that we will have internet in our rooms at the mob station if we want to purchase it, so I may be coming back online when things settle down a little. The pace here is picking up, so computer time is becoming more and more scarce and the wife isn't happy when I am spending time with you monkeys instead of her, so time to [gone] I will keep in touch whenever I can and let y'all know how things are going. Later all

    I had noticed and figured it was getting near that time.

    Be safe and send us an update if you can.

    You'll be in our thoughts here [no]

    Our thoughts and prayers go with you. Let us know what you might need in the way of care packages and tell Mrs Sniper66 that we would love to have her visit us here for some company and moral support.

    Make sure mm gets your mailing addy so he can send the lotion. I'll pay the postage if you get pix of the reactions from your mates in the sandbox.

    Best of luck, stay safe, and check in now and then. Thank you for serving. [bow]

    The lotion came this afternoon, so I will do that. I think I have melbo's email in my distro list for my updates, so if he likes, he can post it on the board.

    Cool, glad it made it so quick. It should often up considerably in the warmer weather but can be chipped out and rubbed on as is and will stay better longer as a solid anyway.

    Know you will be busy but do keep in touch however much you can and let us know anything you need. I still have the stuff to do up a few more cans that size and can get more and if there are other things you need then if I cant come up with it Im sure there is someone on here who could and would be only to glad to do so.

    Hey MM, the wife saw the cool can you sent the lanolin in and wondered if I could chip it out, clean it up and let her have it for her antique can collection! Told her I would ship it home when I was done with it!
    Thanks all, I will keep in touch and keep all you monkeys posted.

    lol Glad she liked it but its less than a year old. Got another one around so when that one runs out let me know and can probably send an other one. May even have some other oil by then to add for better aromas. Do let me know how it works out too, if it stays to stiff I can add other (non scented) oil to it that will keep it as more of a gell or liquid, just figured the way that is might travel a little better.

    BTW; If you happen to be shipping out by way of Whiteman and have a couple hours lay over give me a hollar and maybe we can get together and toss one back before you head out. [beer]

    Hey Sniper:)

    Be safe my friend and give everyone over there my most sincere thanks. What you folks do means a lot to a lot of people back home.

    Thanks Magnus, I will and also, when I get back, I am going to take you up on your request to get your hands on my Maadi, that thing is really needing some care!
    MM, I would love to do that, but two things wrong with your statement. First, the Army only travels with the second best, so Whiteman would only happen if someone got lost! The second problem is that by next Friday, general order #1 is in effect. NO sex, NO porn, NO drugs, and alcohol is absolutely VERBOTEN!!, so I would only get to watch you drink it! :dunno:
    Oh, y'all will love this. Today, my lawn mower finally went tango uniform, so I had to sink six grand into a brand new Bad Boy lawn mower, a mans dream. The only problem is that it gets delivered tomorrow, I will get to drive it once, and then the wife gets it for the next 18 months!!!!

    Keep somebody here current with your address, so we know where to send care packages. Who are you going with/attached to.

    36th Avn Bde, the first full-up Guard Aviation Bde ever. This should be interesting!

    Ditto. Let us know what we can send and what we can't. We don't want to get in trouble, but we want you to have as good a stay as possible. Thanks for all that you do, if need be we can probably rotate taking care of your new mower. [peep]

    KEWL. The whole 101st going too?
    You need loudspeakers and Wagner.

    No, he 101st is there now mucking up the works, we are replacing them. It seems someone from the 101st came up with some lame brain idea to make you wear a reflective belt while in the compound to keep from getting hit by a vehicle! Great idea in a combat zone! Beginning to think that getting mortared every night is better than living in a garrison environment!
