    The last of my clan (SIL) to go to Iraq is on his way home. YEA!!!! We got his email this morning they were about to board the plane. He is the 5th person in my family to go over…this was his second tour.

    In my family I’ve had 2 nephews, 2 SILs and 1 son… all marines and Scot is the last one home. He is due into California on Sunday and then has 1 more month and he will be out of the service. He has served 6 years. He’s going to get his degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology then he thinks he will either go back in as an officer or go into law enforcement.

    Any way his mom is a witch and I don’t mean that in a bad way…it’s her religion. She gave me these two chickens (Scotty and Krissy) and told me to keep them with my chickens and take good care of them. That as long as they stay safe Scot will come home safely; I don’t go in for all that weird mumbo jumbo but hay why tempt fate.

    Like I would let anything happen to them anyway.

    >>>>>>>Up Date<<<<<<< He called this morning and they had a layover in Maryland and they will be in California by tonight. My daughter and his parents are leaving tomorrow morning and driving to California to spend a week and a half with him. He was able to reserve one of the cottages on base. My goofy daughter says she's nervous and excited at the same time. I’m so happy I’m beside myself; I can’t wait for him to come home.

    These are the birds Scotty and Krissy....uh duh!



    This is the real Scot and Kristine (My daughter)


    This is Scot with his men in Iraq

    Congratulations on the safe return and pretty chickens. The kids are a great looking couple and I'm sure that you're glad the family is together again.
