Game 4 definitely better than game 3. I guess you're not sleeping tonight?
Behind the eyes??? Owwww, damn, that had to hurt.

If they do ask u to go on a convoy you know what the answer is, don't you?

Hmmmm, my answer... let's see. Could it be.....

1. "Let me see if that handsome guardian angel is going to use that shield like it was intended....."

2. "Maybe I'd better call my lead in Bagram and ask, I'm sure they'll say No."

3. "Why not, we already know God's going to keep me around whether I like it or not."

4. "Well, either the Afghanis miss me this time, or some GT'ers will....".



Guess not, eh? Maybe door #5 needs to be "Hell NO, remember what happened last time I tried that crap?!?"


Sleep? What's that? I got a little earlier, but woke up a couple hours ago. Guess who came to visit.

Thank you Skidoo...they are much appreciated. It's been a rough month...though I understand it's been much worse for L_W, and I pray for her (and you!!!) all the time. One day, it's got to get better...they say God only gives you what you can handle...I think he over-estimates me. I'm at my wits end. Worried about both kids, weak and hurting like crazy myself...and need a job so bad because I can't even buy things I need for the hemoraging. Another chance to cry it out...gonna go find a corner to sit in so the family doesn't see me.

Wow, LG, Iím really praying things turn around for you. I hope the new docs there can do something for you and your kids. I was really hoping Ranger would be back on her feet by now, hopefully soon. I wish I could do something besides pray and be a friend, it seems so much has gone wrong for you lately. Skidoo has the right idea, hereís some for all of you.

And I can sure relate to the feeling that God overestimates us at times, heís damn sure overestimated me.

I been working on the visualization, but no results for the past week or so. Seems me and the guy Dusty posted about have a few things in common where thatís concerned. I talked about it to my shrink and sheís not the least bit surprised. She said sheíll think itíll subside, but it might get even worse for a bit when I first get there. That wasnít what I wanted to hear.

I figured youíd have something to say about all of the first 4 answers, something about not taking that chanceÖ. So now itís OK to go on a convoy?
I can't help but notice the irony in your sig line now. It used to be that you folks would dogpile me to get me to do something I didn't want to do, now some of you are dogpiling me to get me to NOT do something you don't want me to do and I donít want to do either.

Wolfe, I don't know what anyone else is saying to you, but I know what I said..."that it might be healing for you to go back to Afghanistan." Honey, this decision is totally up to you. If you want to go and feel strongly about it, then you need to do what you want to do, but if in your heart you know that you don't want to go, then don't do it! We all love you and I bet there isn't a one of us who actually WANTS you to go, but we are trying to be supportive and let you make up your own mind.

Hi folks! I heard from The Gorgeous One today! She asked me to relay she's having problems and hopes to be online soon and to stress she is still among the living.

Hi folks! I have a message for y'all from Miss Lone. "Between my damn chest, the nightmares, trying to get ready to travel, and then when I finally have a minute where I can lift a computer and want to talk I can't get online. So now I get online, the connection keeps cutting out, and I can't get a GT page to load." Please keep her in your prayers.

I really don't know how I feel about it. Right now I'm still feeling really negative and scared as hell, pretty freaked out that I even said I would. It doesn't help that I've had both the chest pain and nightmare flared up bad since I fould out, and to the point it's kept me offline for the last few days. That, and Hajji-net here didn't help.

And yeah, I agree about staying the hell off convoys. My history on them isn't very good, is it?

The first part was true at times, at other times I couldn't due to being either too doped up or at the hospital, and hajji-net is getting worse by the day here. Oh well, I won't be here much longer.

So where's that PM you tried to send me? I clean out my Inbox just for you and then, nothing.

Thanks for passing that on, I figured a couple of you might wonder if I'd decided to try riding on a convoy here in Iraq. Yeah, I'm still among the living, but have spent a lot of time in the last few days wishing I wasn't.

Folks, you need to thank Skidoo for editing out part of this message before he posted it. Something to do with the Queen's english.....

I hope that works out, that place is nasty and toting my still arould is hell on my chest.

The last few days haven't been fun at all. My nightmares are having their way with me and between my physical terrorist trying to get me ready to travel, thrashing from the nightmares, weather changing, etc, my chest has been saying thing I can't print.... But the demons haven't won their battle, so Batter Up!

Sorry about the PM. I think I pretty much covered it on an email to you. It seems like forever since then.

I heard today about 17 people killed in Khabul in an armored bus by a suicide bomber who rammed it with a vehicle carrying explosives, including US soldiers and civilian contractors. I thought how easily that could have been you. It wasn't , but they were someone's child and/or father or mother. Prayers up for all of them and especially for you. Keep your head down. I meant what I said about your employer pulling strings to get you into a good hospital when you are through. You have definitely gone beyond the call of duty and deserve the very best care. Say the word and I will personally write every Congressman, Senator and the President with your story and petition them on your behalf.

We are a little sad tonight. We haven't seen the tuxedo cat for two days. It was a little cold Friday night, so I'm afraid he went into someone's garage to get warm and got closed in. This is what happened with our last outdoor cat. Just didn't show up one morning.

Bob, prayers for tuxedo cat to make it home safely. I am in agreement with you on her employer promising to get her into a good hospital when she is through...and the fact that she has gone beyond the call of duty and deserves the very best care! I'm on board to write letters, too!

How are you doing today, Wolfe?

Ya know sweetie, if'n the whole 'stay there' aspect becomes the full reality, you ARE gonna have to break down and get another Hajji-cell phone, right?

Hope you get to feeling as "better" as "better" gets under the whole of the circumstance!!

I just found out that one of the guys killed had ties to my town.

I'm not quite sure why they said he "died in an accident".
