Claim the privilege of hunting according to the dictates of your own conscience, and allow all hunters the same privilege;
let them practice how, where, or what they may.

And Then, the Shit Really Hit the Fan!

Sorry for the dearth of posts this week.

We got hit, and if  I may paraphrase Hamlet, "Something is rotten in the Province of Helmat."

I've got my people buttoned up tight and my heads on a damned swivel. My soldiers are wound up and ready; weapons clean and battle-rattle squared away.

The Afghan Air Farce (AAF) is not only a danger to itself but to us also, and their behavior lately has us all on edge. We had a "situation" last week with them, and again I am not at liberty to discuss it, but it sucked royally with yours truly right smack in the middle of it. (Seriously, where else would I be...). Suffice it to say that we never know just who we should be watching out for...

I've got R&R coming up so with a little luck, I'll be home enjoying Starbucks Coffee (Grande Breve No-Foam Latte w/six raw sugars please...) sitting at the cafe table, Wall Street Journal in hand, and with good ol' Charlie at my side!

All the best to y'all!
Albert

Godspeed, Albert - keep your head down and watch your six (and your three and your nine - oh, heck - watch all of 'em).

Hey Bud do me a favor and keep your head down and give me a ring when you get back to the real world.

Albert- Your soon to be had R&R is beyond well deserved...as are the thanks from those of us back home that don't have the balls to do what you do, so THANK YOU! ♥

Damned friendly fire - bad enough when it's from competent forces.

Stay safe. We'll still be here when you're back.

Stay safe!

Oh good lord, Albert! Six sugars? Really?

LOL, I like my coffee sweet too.

Take care, man. Come to Cali for some R&R sometime. There's always something in season, and Hank will feed you well.

Ladies and Gents,

Thanks again for the kind words!
Miss America, we all do what we have to do, some with more vigor than others!
BP, think of it more as unfriendly fire, or barely suppressed hatred fire, or better yet Death to America fire!
Ian, you may rest assured that I have the location of everything from Ma Deuce to a sharpened stick memorized...
Holly, ummm... it is 16 ounces of half and half... I may take you up on your hospitality next time I come in!

Thanks to every one of you for the kind words!
Albert
