word of wisdom
My roommates…they leave such ironic gifts when they move.
A cursory internet search showed that bottle of alcohol to be valued at $35. It’s a shame it’s opened, because I could sell it quite easily.
When I posted this pic to FB, one of my buddies from EBOLC commented “opened or not, mail that bad boy to me!”

Future avocado trees…or so I hope.
In order news, my green bean sprouts both have leaves now!

Well look what’s still in our company’s TA-50 room!
Yes indeed, the Festivus pole! We have a new commander, but the pole remains.

That’s the view from my new office.
I’m back to my old battalion after a six-month absence.
I got to see the long-range calendar and all the fun activities we have going on in 2014.
This coming spring and summer will be very interesting.
…more to follow!

This helps me hit the sack early when I know I have an early wake-up.
I was apprehensive to try it, but it’s proven to be quite useful.

So I went to Las Cruces today and enjoy a ward barbecue with my friends. I left just before it got too windy. And rainy. Still a fun day.
I do like Young Park. It’s got sentimental value for me.

Today was my last day with USACE. On Monday I’ll start work at battalion as the assistant S2. Exciting? Not really, but I’m grateful to be employed.
If I stay in the Army for another year or so, I will eventually have to return to Fort Leonard Wood. I’m not looking forward to moving back there, but I’ll admit the Midwest has some lovely sights.
I snapped these photos a week before I reported to EBOLC in January 2011. This place is called Adam-Ondi-Ahman, and it’s a sacred and historically significant site in the LDS faith. I had never been there before, but it’s beautiful and peaceful place.

Rummaging through old photos I took during the winter of 2012.
New Mexico is a beautiful state and the Tularosa Basin is no exception. I do love the desert. Within a year or so, I’ll have a change in scenery, as our battalion is scheduled to roll up the guidon and relocate to a new installation.

So one of my coworkers generously gave me a pair of green bean plants. How neat. I swung by the PX and purchased some pots and soil to go along with them.
I can’t wait to watch these grow! Exciting.
Gardening is a fun hobby. What else should I grow?

New Mexico is home to three Air Force bases. Arizona has two. The American southwest has vast desert lands that provide ample space for flying at supersonic speeds without bothering any local populace. The dry climate also makes aircraft maintenance easier.
I’ll miss seeing jets whiz through the sky on a daily basis…even though the occasional sonic boom would always make me jump.
