    Hey everybody,

    I forgot to tell you guys that it's a boy! I had my final critiques today, so I'm done with school and graduate on Saturday!

    How's everything in Jax?

    Congrats on the Boy!

    Ron just found out his Unit is going to "Tatooine" in a few months too. So now the big choice...stay in or get out...

    Congrats on the youngling.

    J9, if you get out, can't they just pull you back in again? How long after your discharge are you considered in researve?

    BTW, it's good to see you back.

    They can have a big Sandcrawler party together.

    Ron is in the Reserves, but he wanted to activate for a while.

    A normal commitment owes 4 years of reserve time. I won't owe any reserve time, because by the time I'm done, I will have been in 8 years because I'm a pilot (they spend all that money to train you, they like to keep you longer).

    Glad to be back!

    Sorry beafet... just to catch you up, I married the Gabe monster back in the '03 and in about 15 more weeks we'll be a threesome. SweetPea will be done "handing out candy bars" in "tatooine" probably by late September and will be a free man October 8th. Did I miss anything?

    Any name suggestions for the little tyke? And no, I don't mean Lucas or Jabba.

    ;)

    I guess Salacious Crumb is out of the question, eh?

    Yeah I knew about the wedding, but not the baby. Congratulations!

    Congrats on your youngling being a boy ! ! ! :)

    Names.........umh.........well, honestly, J-9 took my suggestion :( So, let's see, you could use the whole name as one name ---- Niennunb Brooks or Tennunb Brooks :)

    J-9 I hope that Ron does not have to go to Tatooine ! ! ! Have ya'll made a decision on it yet?

    Things are so much up in the air, but he's seriously thinking about moving to raleigh and starting law school or something n the fall. I don't know. We'll see, we still have time to make the choice.

    I heard they got rid of the "Ham SLice" and "Four Finger's" MRE. My Personal fav's are the vege ones!

    Hmm... having spent the last 4 years eating in a school cafeteria, I'm very curious as to what a "four fingers" MRE has in it. They all still have tobassco sauce though, right? And peanut butter thick enough to build a house with?

    Okay, went to a going away party for a good friend of mine who's a Lt. in the Army, headed for Iraq. Little sausages? Yick! No wonder they'd want to do away with that one...

    yeah,I don't think they make the four fingers of death now.... I liked it actually...
    the milkshakes are okay, they remind me of Carnation instant breakfast.
    We had to make a medivac run this morning, someone had been bit by a bee and had an alergic reaction.
    The rumors are flying like crazy, this seems to be worse than by last deployment.

    Well, Honey... [face_love] You don't exactly have the same taste buds as normal people. You like gross stuff like Nestlé Milo and soy milk. [face_sick] So gross it's delicious, right? [face_batting]

    Oh, and all in favor of cutting off Rumsfeld's hands say "Aye!"
