    Back in the land of the big BX

    Well, I made it home safe and sound. Still trying to adjust to the 14 hour time difference from Korea. I am just enjoying spending time w/ my family after being away for a year, and we are now getting ready for our cruise next week. I also have a very long "Honey Do" list that I am working on. Went out Monday to look at the S&W M&P and really liked it (was smaller than I expected, which was good). Just looking around for the best price right now. The cheapest so far it $525. I also just got the directions to the closest Sheriffs office to get my fingerprints for my CCW. Will probably go today or tomorrow to do that.

    Welcome home, I'm sure it's a great feeling. And just in time for Christmas too,

    Mike, welcome home and especially to the sunny south. Glad you made it back alright. Enjoy that time with family. I bet the "honey do" list even looked good to you. Enjoy the cruise.

    Welcome home Mike!

    Always thought the coolest part of coming back from a tour in the far East was getting to the States "hours before you took off"!

    Glad you made it home in time for X-Mas.

    I will be over your way again this Sat. for opening day of gun season in Eglin. Will be stalking the edges of Titi Creek for the hog that has been making the big track that I saw a few days ago. -------
