Anyway. Since then, I moved and started a semi-new job. Also since then, my dad was deployed to Kuwait for a six-month tour as the commanding officer at Camp Morrell in Ali Al Salem. He's doing fine (though my mom doesn't think he's sleeping much) and seems to be kind of bored most of the time. One of his colleagues has a kid whose third grade class has been writing letters to the guys stationed at Camp Morrell asking what their lives are like there. The only thing they can think of in response is that they don't like using plastic utensils. So, yeah.
But Dad's in charge of lots of stuff in lots of places, which he has to travel around and look at. He's been to Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, and all of the finest tourist destinations in Iraq. Hopefully he's taking lots of pictures and writing down lots of stuff, 'cause I started writing too. I don't know what it is yet, but it might be . . . something. We'll see.
Most importantly, though, we just got official notice of his return flight plans. Which is awesome. He lands in Gulfport, Mississippi on March 10 and into Philadelphia on March 12. We're planning a Leahy-Scale party for that particular occasion, so get excited.
Anyway. There's lots to blog about, really, not the least of which is my imminent bankruptcy due to proximity to all kinds of great live music. Ugh. So, though I'll certainly eat my words, look for actual updates.
