Ft Bliss reunion at the Famous Pearl in Doha
Well I am back at work after my little vacation and of course my days and nights are all messed up again. Thats ok though, its nothing 5 or 6 cups of coffee and some red bulls cant fix. My last day in Qatar I was really bummed because I did not want to come back to TQ. Now that I am back it is good to be back "home". There is some comfort in familiar surroundings and people. My first visit back to the chow hall was entertaining because it iss Easter which means that the Indidan workers pulled out the virgin mary statue again and gave her another makeover so this time she is an angel playing a violin. I have no idea how the violin fits with Easter but hey, they try. This is what you get when hindus do the decorating for Christian holidays. It is always fun to see when the virgin mary statue will show up. She has made visits in several different outfits and poses for Christmas, New Years, St Patricks day and now Easter. I can hardly wait to see what she dresses up as for the 4th of july.
In other news we finally got a concert here at TQ and as befits our status as the forgotten FOB we got a chart topping current pop star. Yes thats right folks, apparently Charlie Daniels is still alive and kicking. From the reports I recieved about the show he is old enough that he had to sit down several times during the show however. All kidding aside though I appreciate him and what he does for the troops. He has been doing USO shows for a long time, way before it became trendy again after 9/11 to do so. I ran into him coming out of the Chow hall and he is a very nice man. So thanks Charlie!
