The scenery is amazingly beautiful - breathtaking, if I may say so.
Look at those mountains.
Of course, I don't have to drive a truck across them, looking for insurgents, so I am allowed to only see the beauty! Besides, it is my job to find the positive, isn't it? So that is what I do... find the positive. Please, take a moment and revel in the beauty of God's creation. Andy took the time to take these pictures - even with his 12 hour shifts, 6 or 7 days a week those mountains are irresistible. (besides, an art major never stops being an art major, even when they switch to something else...)
Speaking of which....
Just thought that was cool to see - and glad it wasn't really needed.
Thank goodness that is over with!!!
Last, but not least, I thought this picture was hilarious. Sometimes, when the planes are in the air, and the paperwork is all done, the crew chiefs have nothing to do for a couple of hours. They can take turns using the phone for the 15 minute, twice a week phone call they are alloted, or share the computer for awhile... but there are quite a few more men then there are computers. So, sometimes some of the guys just stretch out and take a quick nap.
See what happens when you are a heavy sleeper, and there are bored, immature guys all around you? Andy is really glad that he has kids, and thus has learned to be a light sleeper! Those are "Peeps" all over that guy. Andy said he ended up with "Peep" written on his forehead before he finally woke up. I said that was unfair, but Andy says that is the price you pay for being a sound sleeper!
