Aloha Jeff

My brother, Jeff, got his orders last week for where he is supposed to report to when he graduates from SOI at Camp Pendleton next week. He is going to Hawaii! How cool is that?! I know he is really glad that he is going there and so are the rest of all of us. He didn't really think that he was going to get sent to Iraq but there was always that possibility. There still is a small possibility but the chances are smaller now.

Now, Stephen and I are talking that we will eventually have to plan some kind of trip there to visit him. Jeff says that he will most likely be stationed out of Hawaii for his whole 4 years. I guess it will be his home base or whatever they call it. Anyway, we've always wanted to go so maybe we'll be able to sometime in the next couple of years. Our 10th wedding anniversary is coming up in 2 years so maybe we'll be able to plan something around that if Jeff is still there.

Well, anyway, Jeff graduates from SOI in a week from today and then he's off to Hawaii that same day. He's hoping to get liberty around the 4th of July and he's going to try and come over for at least a few days. Our family is heading back from India in a few days and they will get here on the 25th and will not leave until the 11th of September. Jeff is going to try to get Recruiter's Assistant while he is here so maybe he'll get to be here for a month or so. That would be really cool because then we wouldn't all be trying to squeeze in all of our time with him in a few short days and we'd all get to spend a lot more time with him. We'll see what happens.

i've been "tagged" (twice now). i'm supposed to share 7 different things about me [ex. unusual, habitual, unknown, etc]. so i did. do you want to? since i "tagged" you, you get to do the same, if you so desire. go check out my blog and see what i wrote. then go and write out 7 different things about you. then "tag" up to 7 others and list them/link them on said post.
no worries, no pressure, just full enjoyment...

As I look back 20-25 years ago, I can't believe how spoiled I was. When I worked in LA I was given a crew in Hawaii to work for me and so I was "forced" to travel to Hawaii ever three months to check in with them. I got so tired of Hawaii that I started sending my Deputy over sometimes. Now I look back and think now I can only afford to go once every 10 years or so, and those trips were free.
love Dad who now realizes now how blessed he has been.
