He remembered my birthday!! It was 6:30 in the morning here... he couldn't stay on long as he was going on a mission (damn... but that's what he does... he's a soldier) but 1SG (First Sarge) said there was nothing more important than calling your Momma on her birthday (they're both good sons!) Made my day!!
[and of course a few hours later, got this in a DOD press release "U.S. Army soldiers patrolling B*** encountered insurgents who detonated an IED and unleashed small-arms fire. The Americans returned fire and wounded one attacker. The injured insurgent was taken to a coalition base for medical treatment. No U.S. soldiers were wounded in the attack." The important part being NO U.S. SOLDIERS WERE WOUNDED...]
And there was a dozen roses on my vanity from my husband (he says they're from the dogs and cats LOL) and there's a big box on the kitchen counter... and coffee and bagels were waiting when I rose... and my little stereo speaker called...
At my request, I will spend this day planting flower seeds... watch some baseball, and tonight friends will join us as we dine at one of the local casinos so I can drink and gamble a little!
I love birthdays... just wish I didn't have to get older to enjoy them!
