Wisconsin, Go Packers!

Holy Cow! How bout them packers so far this year. While I don’t follow the games as much as I should, this weekends route against the Vikings deserves mention. We stomped them. Again, holy crap! The Packers won the game something like 34-0. Taking the world by storm…..well….. maybe just the NFL anyway.

I love the regional bond that stay with people no matter how far they travel. There I was sitting in Iraq on my first day (many many miles from home), not knowing anybody when low and behold here strolls up this Navy guy named Adams from Wisconsin. We instantly become friends, and he introduces me to the other folk from WI (just one other guy – Kori!). Whether it was because we were both stuck in Iraq or had so much in common that it warranted friendship it didn’t matter, we were from the same area of the country and instantly felt the common thread. A year later he came to my sisters wedding and met the family.

    Colonel Mclean,

    Good to hear from you sir. Things are okay with me. Thank heavens Al Gore invented the internet so Julia Ruck can help us communicate. Are you headed back to Iraq any time soon? I will be stateside for awhile. Well I hope all is well with you and yours. Be well.

    Al Adams
