Hey man, just wanted to check back in and let you know I got the books today. Thanks a million! I finally have something to read besides "the art of war" and old magazines, lol.

My pics are up now on webshots if anyone wants to take a look at what life is really like around here.

Although checking that link just now, I see the Marine Corps decided to block it which means I can't access it anymore, therefore, the pics that are on there won't be updated till I get back next spring ...I'm so tired of this place ...

Boring, hot, monotonous, and continous. It's kinda like a prison work camp with decent food and your own room to sleep in at night, lol.

Least I'm getting paid for this ...

Glad you like the books. Sorry it took so long. I'll send more stuff when I can.

"Boring, hot, monotonous, and continous."

Sounds like my job here! The only difference seems to be that it's cold and dreary outside and I'm not getting shot at. (At least, not yet. ;-p)

Thanks for the pics. The one shot of the Army couple is my favorite. Glad to see they managed to get some time together.

Found a box that the mister bottle just barely manages to fit in. I'll see if I can fit anything else in there as well.

Well, I said I'd send you stuff, didn't I? ;-p

Too bad the one box won't reach you in time for Halloween - it has hard candy in it.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the reading material dude. I think I got enough now, lol. But thanks again. Especially the stuff by Robert E. Howard (I think the Cormac Mac Art stories may be some of the best I've read in a while). Unfortunately the spray bottle got here the day it turned cold and it's been rather nipply lately. I've been retreating to my office and hiding out most of the day to avoid having to go outside.

In other words, not much different than when it was hot, lol. But I'm keeping the bottle. It's pretty cool and I can use it when I go off roading in the So Cal deserts. Most thoughtful thing anyone's sent me so far!

Glad you're enjoying the packages I sent. I heard a rumor that they're not feeding the troops right over there, is that true? If so, I could see about sending you some non-perishable food so you won't be as hungry.

Where'd ya hear that? Probably same place I heard it before I left. I'll leave that subject alone. I know I heard a whole lotta crap about this place that was false and a lot of it was from the *cough* left *cough* side of the house (and I usually vote for them btw).

To be honest, the chow hall here is unreal. In fact, one of the biggest problems here is Marines becoming overweight. Everyone lives in air conditioned/heated trailers called "cans" with linen and furniture and 24 hour emergency service available in case something breaks. Hell, they even clean the porta-jon's at work on a daily basis. Shower trailers, flush toilets (at the "cans". Porta jons at work, to be clear), a chow hall that serves Baskin-Robins ice cream. KBR does a pretty good job here, at least where I'm at.  

Being stationed here has been an eye opener. It ain't that bad. The internet connectivity is testy, the phones ain't free and you have to buy a TV to have something to watch. The PX is pretty crappy.

But then I remind myself and my Marines ...it's a combat zone. It's also a base that's located just a few miles away from Falujah. All things considered, it's a decent existance here. Don't believe all the hype back home on the news or out of the mouths of nay sayers.

All right, I'll pass the word on to my friends in the political forum. Be sure to let me know if there's anything else you need.
