First, have a Happy Thanksgiving. I must say that this year our family has a lot to be thankful for.

We have traveled to the great state of West By God Virginia to spend the holiday with our families. The oldest boy flew out from Camp Geiger and we drove up Wednesday morning through the miserable rain and idiots on the road. Leaving at 4:00 am was the wife's idea and I am not sure that was the wisest move as it was a cranky ride up. Don't believe I'll do that again.

Rain has been unrelenting in WV for the previous few days and my family lives along the Little Kanawha River. It is moving quickly at least so it shouldn't cause too many problems. I have a picture and video for you.

The youngest boy has finally caught me in height. 13 years old and 6'-0" tall. Some day he'll quit growing but I'm not sure when. He really enjoys life and I have a bunch of new ideas for things we can do next year as he is the only child now. He does enjoy that but not the chores that come with it. 

The oldest boy got leave for this holiday and learned that he will be stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC. That makes the wife happy as he is close to home. His is in 308 but we don't know what company. He is also a 0311 infrantry-man and hopes to be team leader. He's talking about being deployed next June or so. 

 Well, more family is showing up so I'll leave you with one more photo and wishes for a happy holiday for you and yours. 

Until next time.....
