Loved it!!!! Hearing you share those things about you really touched me. Missing you a lot lately. Guess the thought of you coming home soon has been on my mind.

it's really not nice to tag your blogmommy with memes. but *sigh* i'll do it.

Thanks!!! That's pretty cool. And I'd like to see what Mustange 23 has to say...

:) I like big bloggers that have fun.

MDG......I don't understand this "tagged" thing, can you explain?

It's way cool how much you cherish your wife. As you get older that's one thing you will never regret (we all have regrests). I feel the same way about my Dove (my Song of Solomon 2:14 to see why I call her "my dove")

PS........thanks for the tip on "word verification". I've had no spam comments since then.

This is Wednesday night and in our house that means "Biscuits and Gravy" for supper. My spouse's favorite, along with strawberry jam to finish off the biscuits. He CAN MAKE GOOD COFFEE.

Also read where you met Gray Eagle, another blogger soldier.

I just want you to know that your Patriotism inspires me. I saw your blog in TIME and decided to read. I enjoy all your stories and admire your dedication to the country. You have deeply affected my decision to apply to West Point, and though that is a few short years off, I look forward to a service to my country as dedicated as yours. You never falter from a position of democracy and compasion and I will share this blog and your insight to everyone I talk to.

I like what this says about you. You will be a good father, a grand husband, and a solid citizen if you or meet just half of these things. I'd say you are well on the way to fine, upstanding, and All Man.

Press on, youngster.

How about seven things you want to do while you LIVE!!!! Hooah!

At 7:48 AM, Blogger El Capitan said...

Sweet. Looks like I just got tagged from Iraq.

At 7:58 AM, Blogger Melinda said...

I especially like to think my husband would write the same answers to "seven things I find attractive in a female" can always hope, right?

All I can do is chuckle. As your sis, I can just "see" your personality in your posts, and I can't wait until our next family reunion when I can see you in person! Not long now. May the Lord keep you safe until then.

"Donkey, SHUT UP!!" Gotta be from SHREK right? Thanks. That was fun. Take care. Godspeed.

MDG - First time visitor, long time admirer of the American soldier!

I've read many memes in all my blog travels, but your responses from the Sandbox...they were touching.

It's things like this that make me glad to be a friend of Milblogs.

God bless you and your comrades!

God Bless you and your family
