And the Thunder rolls...

Things here in Iraq remain the same. today was my day off, and i caught up on a lot of sleep that i had been missing. the daily grind has set in and i am a little bored. part of me wishes that i was out on covoy, but then i remembered what happened on convoy. its a rough lifestyle. a soldier was killed in mosul the other day by sniper fire. he was out on convoy and they had stopped for some reason. i really dont understand the people of iraq some times. if they would stop fighting for one year, we would leave this country and they could have all the civil war they wanted.
i got some pictures of noah. they are in my "little green book." which is government worker code for the cheapest notebooks the government can find and issue out to the soldiers. i have it with me all the time and i have decided that he is the cutest thing on the face of the planet right now. L & B thank you for the package mailed on 28 sep. please thank nancy for the cookies. they were a big hit among the joes. i also liked the breathe right strips (so did my roommate) i was able to sleep in peace (so was he).
things continue to get more and more rediculous as my leadership tries their hardest to remain "off the radar". our shift is the only one that is not screwing up, and we are the only shift that has not had a negligent discharge of a weapon yet...and the stupid rules are the result. if i werent trying to get promoted before r&r i would just have the negligent discharge to get it over with. anyways, i continue to drive on and appreciate the comments on previous posts-grandfather, you can comment all you want you are hilarious...

I will write more later

Hey Bud,

Negligent discharges are no Joking matter. Noah is really cute and if you have access to software for viewing an MPEG you will want to have L send some MPEG's that she took when I was there. Sorry we missed your call but we sleep at night. I love you. Pode

I think the Iraqi people have no history of Freedom or Democracy and therefore do not understand what it can do for them. It is just a difference of culture. If you ride in any convoys be sure to watch your back. No matter how nice any of the Moslems may seem you don't ever want to ride in an airplane with a Moslem pilot.

Boredom has it's virtues. It was good to talk with you. ILY Not much of interest here. Cold, drizzily. I'm going to buy some boots for the winter. I'm reading Blue Like Jazz -- you might like it--thought provoking.

Not much new here either, and I can't wait to send you pictures of little Cody. Less than a month to go. We are making the final preparations to the home, car, lifestyle and I think we are as ready as we will ever be! ILY IMY Pete
