Safe travels, friend. I hope you can get some sleep soon, knocked out by doc or otherwise.

You stalking me?!?!?!?! Yeah, the weather here is nice.

The trip from the Kuwait Airport to the base was an adventure, I got here early this AM local time. By the time I got to my tent I was having a bout of psychosis-induced disorientation, but luckily this place is familiar enough that I got me and my stuff to a bunk. I'm still feeling some of that, so I'm not going to say a lot in here even though I know a lot of you have talked to me. Maybe later my head will clear a bit.

From the travel and toting my stuff I was past hurting. Damn. I took some of my extra meds I keep with me for that reason and laid down and tried to rest. Sleep eluded me and all I could do was lay still and try not to thrash until the extra meds kicked in. They finally did and I layed there for about 6 hours until the worst let off some.

I got to go now and get my IBA and other gear issued, I should have done that earlier, but I couldn't move, let alone carry that crap. Then I get to see about catching a flight to Iraq......

back at ya.

Wolfe I wish that your trip could have been a little less painful. How are you feeling now? I looked for an email from you at my usual time. Is it too much to hope that you might be asleep? I wish I had more time than just a quick post but I'm swamped here at work.

You got out just in time. It's snowing here!

So how many fender benders have you seen? Be careful, wouldya? You know you can't drive in that slop! Neither can I....

Yeah, it was too much to hope for that I slept. It's 4AM and I still haven't slept.

It should be soon, just trying to get to Baghdad now, then I'll run straight to me doc as soon as I can. I can't explain how bad I need that sleep.

3 plus inches of snow here in the A-T-L right now. It's wet, heavy slushy stuff. Hoping it does not freeze tonight and stays warm so we don't have to deal with that mess.

You trying to make me glad I'm in Kuwait????


You're succeeding! Hope you're OK tonight, stay safe my friend.

Wolfe, I'm glad you got out before the snow.

Find the Doc, get some sleep.
This has been long enough.

It's funny, when you are stateside, I think, well WTH, I'll just
go get her. It feels so different with you there. It's the opposite
of what I felt living in Germany in my teens.

At any rate, Wolfe you are back there with this Doc you trust,
be honest about how this trip was for you, try and get whatever
help you can in the amount of time you have.

Remember, Spring and Summer are hopefully coming.
We are all here for you. You are welcome.
I still need to teach you how to fish.
Much more relaxing than shooting.

SG.

Something early for Valentine's Day.
(I always liked this song)

Far Away
by Carole King

So far away; Doesn't anybody stay in one place any more?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door;
Doesn't help to know you're just time away;
Long ago I reached for you and there you stood;
Holding you again could only do me good;
How I wish I could, but you're so far away

One more song about movin' along the highway;
Can't say much of anything that's new;
If I could only work this life out my way;
I'd rather spend it bein' close to you;

But you're so far away, doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door;
Doesn't help to know you're so far away
Yay-uh-ay-eee; Oh, so far away

Travelin' around sure gets me down and lonely;
Nothin' else to do but close my mind;
I sure hope the road don't come to own me;
Yet so many dreams I've yet to find;

But you're so far away, doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door;
And it doesn't help to know you're so far away
......................

Get well, LW. And happy Valentine's Day. (just a bit early).
Mike

Long enough? It's been way too damn long! I'll be hunting down that doc as soon as I set foot in Iraq. I'm hoping to get there later tonight or early tommorow.

And trust me, I'll tell him whatever he wants to know about my time in the States. I don't think you would have wanted to try to come get me and take me up to Minnesota this time of year. I was hurting bad enough with temps ABOVE zero! Now visiting in summer sounds good, shall I bring my fishing poles?

It can't come soon enough, but I'm still trying. I was supposed to get my IBA and other protective gear issued yesterday but had to put it off until this morning because my chest was just too bad to do anything. So I went in to get my new issue and the person issuing the gear handed me a nice small set of IBA and said “You civilians are lucky, you don’t have to carry that big bulky stuff the military insists on”. I looked ant that thing and said “You gotta be ****ing me! I want something that’ll do me some good!” The guy looked at me like I’d just crawled out from under a rock, and finally walked off and came back with a set just like my Army stuff. He asked me why in the hell I would want that hot, heavy, bulky crap when I was allowed to have the nice lightweight stuff. I looked at the small set and asked “What will this do to stop an AK round at 50 feet?” He looked at me like I was nuts and said “Not a thing, but even this heavy stuff won’t stop it at that range. It’ll just slow the bullet down, but that won’t help you”.

I didn’t bother to tell him any differently………………






You can guess which set I took.

Was that guy really that dumb? I'm glad you chose the large set.

Well folks, I'm in Iraq. I'm going to have to take some extra meds and wait a while for them to kick in before I write more, and answer PM's.


Just that much closer to a good doc........

Wolfe thank you for the email letting me know that. I'm glad to know you arrived safely although in pain. How soon do you get to see your doctor? You know I wish you didn't have to be over in that war to get the help you need and I hope you can come back healed soon. I pray daily for your safety and healing.
