Rickpops’s Travel Diary

MapHey,

Usually not much to say here day after day but a couple interesting things recently...Yesterday Iraq beat Vietnam in a soccer match heading to the finals...Normally not anything I would follow or care about but the Iraqis were so happy they started celebrating by shooting in the air...of course they didnt shoot STRAIGHT up so we had to stay indoors "Lockdown" because of stray bullets from the celebration...What we thought would be ironic, is we have a civilian from Vietnam era...how ironic would it be if he survived vietnam and 40 years later gets hit by a bullet in iraq because they beat vietnam in a soccer match....just makes you wonder.....

Hot and dry today in case you are wondering...Also couple discussions about what we miss the most...I've been saying a good shower and a soft bed.. One guy brought up options....and i thought this was pretty good...We get up at the same time, go to the same dinning hall, go to the same gym and walk the same way to work every day day after day...You cant say, I'm going to McDonalds today, or I'm going to take a ride this weekend to the lake, the are no choices really, no options, and he said he's going to really take advantage of having options when he gets back...i thought that was pretty cool.....

Hope everyone is doing well, enjoying the summer...the stars and stripes newspaper out here usually has a little story about many different states, always try to show some summer photos of kids in the water, sprinklers, etc enjoying those summer things.....Its always great to see....

Havent kept up with the summer movies, but i know transformers came out...hope you all are enjoying the long nights...
