The Furminator is the thing you need for my dogs. It removes all of their extra dead hair before it can shed all over the house.
I wrote in my pocket notebook about my thankfulness to the Lord for even the small things He gives me. I normally read the Stars and Stripes daily. The night I was waiting for the helicopter to fly me back to my FOB, I was feeling a bit nervous. I won't go into why, but flying around a hostile city is not my favorite thing.
Anyways, I had not read the paper that day, and happened to find a current copy sitting in the waiting room. So, I got to read the paper while I waited for my flight, which took my mind off the situation for a while.
I also want you to know two things. First, I always wear my ID tags, even to the shower. The last thing I want is for something bad to happen and not be identifiable. Secondly, I am doing everything I can not to go crazy or something. I want to go home so bad, but I do not want to go home to you as a crazy person, or as a different (for the worse) person than I left you.
I love you.
