Back to Iraq, The Party

Last night,a party was thrown in my honor. A good time was had by all. Karaoke was sung, and Unkawill was a sight to behold on the dance floor, gettin all kinds of jiggy with it, I was.

I am Humbled by the amount of love that was thrown my way, who knew I had so many friend's?

I didn't get a head count, and if I have to guess, I would say, north of 60 people cared enough to show up and help me celebrate.

The food was Awesome as usual, and the menu read as follows.

Brisket, Sausage, Chicken fajitas, Tater salad, Beans, Armadillo Eggs, Pico, Deviled Eggs, Chips and Queso, A Gorgeous Chocolate cake, and a bunch of other stuff.

It was all delicious, thanks to everybody who brought a dish, Y'all Rock!

Up at 8:30 this morning, doing laundry, taking care of all the last little details, packing my bags, head out to the airport around 2 for my 4:30 flight to Houston.

Update! Aug. 26, 2007

Done with my Indoc process, should fly mid week, thanks for your support and Prayers!

So glad to hear that you had a party in your honour, but I'm not at all surprised that so many people hold you in such high esteem.

That meal sounds delicious, but the sight of you getting "jiggy with it" must have been the real icing on the cake of the night!

God bless you, Unkawill.

I trust that was NOT in the split-crotch pants of last weekend... :-)

Hell Unka, with just your family present you'd exceed 100!! But so glad to hear that so many came to give you a great send off. Karaoke, chocolate cake and Armadillo eggs (much as I'd like ot know, it's probably best NOT to explain what they are to this New Englander)...what more can you want in the company of the ones you love.

Hope your flight was uneventful.

I meant to drop by last night as I knew you were leaving today but time got away from me.

The party sounds of them Texas shenanigans (sp?)[or is that shindings?] I imagine... don't they do everything bigger down there?

Fair winds and following seas my friend. I will be looking forward to hearing updates. Here's to another adventure!

Michelle - yeah, its me. Wouldn't want a repeat of last time ;-)
