Outta Here!

This probably will be my last post for the next week and a half.

Tomorrow morning we are all flying to San Jose, California, and then taking a rental to Monterey to visit with our daughter. Monterey is about 75 miles south of San Jose.

She is an Army Spec 4; her AIT is the Defense Language Institute in Monterey where she is studying Arabic. We are staying at the Naval Lodge about 3 miles away from DLI. She is a bit lonely right now and is very tired of being in school for so many years. She wants to get deployed but will not be through with all her training until late Spring next year.

We are all on pins and needles waiting to see her again. Her sisters are sooooo excited. The youngest (she is 17) has never flown. The middle girl (22) flew overseas twice in 2007, once to Cairo (January) and once to Israel (June).

Have fun, Sig. And make sure you teach that kid of yers the benefit of air-drying. Tell her tumble drying seems to muss up her hair

Yessir, I just hope she hasn't gotten addicted to the fabric softener sheets. Every now and then I get one crammed into my fresh clean undies and I tell ya, they're amazing!

Y'all have a good trip and let your daughter know how much we appreciate her service.

You'll love the Monterrey coastline, it's gorgeous, but watch out for the liberal cooties in the air.

I'm sure you'll try to get into San Fran. If you haven't been there in a while be ready for a shock. There are so many homeless living there they literally take up lanes in the street with there camps.
