    Thumbs up Welcome Home!!!!!!!

    Thought you might like to hear that my son and his reserve unit arrived in Cleveland yesterday afternoon after a tour in Iraq. My prince-of-propaganda is trying to get a final discharge, as his enlistment expired last fall while he was in Iraq. Those soldiers whose contracts expired and who didn't re-up are trying to get out. We'll see if that theory "flies" and they get discharged or if that backdoor-draft stop-loss crap means they are still extended and stuck (and maybe stuck going back???)

    MOM IS VERRY HAPPY HE'S HOME SAFE!!!! I know there are many men and women and children happy that their soldier, male or female, is home safe and sound.

    What wonderful news! I am so glad he is back home safe and sound.

    That backdoor draft thing totally bites.

    Thanx. I'm still very happy -- even though I have no room to move in my apartment because he came back with more stuff than he left with! I'm still hoping some of the army stuff, especially the two footlockers, one of which is sitting in my favorite chair and the second of which is sitting on the loveseat which is making my cat unhappy, goes back to the unit HQ. Oops, gotta go retrieve his desert camo uniform from the dryer. Still gotta go and do demob stuff at the unit base.

    Now, when does Ohio State start fall quarter?????

    Great news! Give us a hug from all of us!

    Don't forget to give him some space to adjust back to civilian life. My Friend's hubby took a while to get back to normal after the hoopla died down and he was returned just before all the insurgent attacks started.

    Thanx to all for the good wishes.

    Ptichka, Callie and son get along much better than I thought they would. It seems Callie adores the male human. Either that or the heat has sapped all the vinegar out of my calico kitty!

    Now, my son has decided that my computer is too damn slow. He claims he'll rebuild it -- sorta like the bionic man -- bigger, better, faster. Whatever, as long as he's paying for the new additions, he can knock himself out. Since Uncle Sam trusts him to do such things, I hope he knows what he's doing.

    Wonder what he'll do with the rest of his summer? Also wonder when I can get more than 15 minutes in my living room and use my computer. Okay, I'm using it now, but he has been online chatting all day. Guess he's got some catching up to do now that he's back.
