Thirty Days and a Wakeup

Flew again today, a mission into Mosul and some other place that I can't spell. Talking over some brats and saurkraut at the chow hall, someone mentioned we've got less than 30 days until our deployment is over. It's hard to believe how fast the time goes by when you're busy like this. I celebrated with a plate of french fries and onion rings. I'm so full I feel like a bloated tick.

I'm back in the office tomorrow. I have a feeling the brakes are going to get put on my flying. Much to do and not much time left to do it.

I watched "The Godfather, Part III" last night. I was mildly interested, but this movie fell far short of Parts I and II. The night prior I watched "Cool Hand Luke" with Paul Newman. That was a much better movie--I don't think I'd seen it all the way through before. Well worth it.

Enjoy the last 30 days, and then leave it all behind :)

What's the plan after that?

Back to Seattle/Tacoma to finally settle down. Arlene and the kids will join me there in May when they finish school in Germany. I expect to be there for another 2 years.

See you in the Emerald City, Steve.
