Boy that flight is miserable! Besides the half day wait to board the beast back to Bagram, there's another six hours of sitting in that cramped aircraft. Kyrgyzstan Air is looking better all the time! LOL!!!
Well I've completed all my tasks, dropped off my charge, (safe and all in one piece.) attended to an inordinate stack of required paperwork (much of it redundant, and in triplicate...), figured out how to do a couple of other things that needed doing, and pretty much was kept busy by the powers that preside over me.
So now it's back to Bagram and my regular (?!) duties. Now you may ask what those duties may be. Nothing extraordinary, you can be assured of that! It's just like being back home, except the environmental conditions can be brutal, if not lethal, and they are devoid of much beauty. You show up to work, do your thing, and keep your wits about you. As I mentioned before, it's nothing too strenuous, and you are safe, so long as you use your head, stay vigilant, and don't become complacent.

The Hunt Continues...
Though he spends most of his time writing and keeping the world safe for democracy, Albert was actually a student of biology. Really. But after a stint as a lab tech performing repetitious and mind-numbing processes that a trained capuchin monkey could do, he never returned to the field. Rather he became a bartender. As he once said, "Hell, I was feeding mice all sorts of concoctions. At the club I did the same thing; except I got paid a lot better, and the rats where bigger." He has followed the science of QDM for many years, and fancies himself an aficionado.
