Just 5 minutes ago Verizon straightened out my internet problem. Seems like things have been pretty screwed up computer wise on this street for quite a while but the new guy in the neighborhood is an internet zombie so they just became aware of it! while we were without phone and internet one of my sons got back from Iraq and I just got off the phone with him. You know he is EOD but he ended up carrying his unit and at any rate he was put in for a Bronze Star and tyhe Army has okayed it but he is waiting on the Air Force. Of course he says he does not deserve it but he is hard core, his Fathers son, and I know he deserves it!
Anyway another son is training to be a combat engineer and next month I fly to Florida to drive back to Massachusetts where he has joined the steel workers union. We will stop in South Carolina on the way to see another son who is redeploying to fly Iraq air support! He will be staying with us for a bit and he is a great guy and will be nice to have him around for a while.
The crowning achievement during my forced absence was Obama getting elected1 Just thinking about it makes me want to scream! Think about it, the implications are enormous. He has one hell of a job before him thanks to the idiot he is preceding but I finally feel we have a chance at a future if we can keep him alive! The entire world has hope. Hope is in the air! Obama has a lot on his shoulders but I firmly believe this is his time and he is the one we need ed to come along and guide us and the world through the dark tunnel Bush has led us down! Take care I am going to look around now and see what has transpired during my absence!
