Random thoughts

TS Fay has disappeared off the radar (literally) and we are about 75 percent done with cleaning up behind the storm. We have one small hole in the roof that will need tending to but other than that, just branches and leaves with which to deal. We were very, very lucky.

Hurricane Gustav is slowly churning through the Caribbean. This looks like a Gulf of Mexico storm but it is too soon to tell. It is forecast to be a category 2 storm by midday Sunday.

We are hoping that SGT Mark will receive a weekend pass for Labor Day and be able to come home. If not, I may head up to Ft. Bragg to see him. We are fortunate that he is only six hours away. All of the Joe rumors have us learning about terms like "stop loss" so we are all in a bit of a funk.

Good Tuesday morning! Glad the clean up is almost done! As for the next storm... who knows! All we know for certain is that it will go somewhere..or it won't :)
I'm not familiar with the term "stop loss" so I 'googled' it... oh my, I now understand your funk! I wonder if this appies to Reserves as well... my oldest son enlisted in 1999, served four years and is due to end his reserve duty in 2009. My youngest son just enlisted for six years in February of 2008.
Pray Hard! Stay Strong!

'dad,

I like this airmanmon she has a good philosophy , "Pray Hard! Stay Strong, that about sums it up.

If Sgt Mark can't come home I'd head north too! Or, in my case south.
