Images and hot

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Since it is the Forth of July and being an American, I figure I should post two images related our country’s birthday. First is an image of old glory flying through a hole blasted by a JDAM in the “Taliban Last Stand” building or referred by its acronym “TLS.” The building was where the Taliban got their wish for 72 virgins courtesy of the USAF.

Guess I used today? A toilet and shower. You might think big deal, but for all the residents of modular housing here, we had to walk a block or two to a shipping container that was converted into a mobile latrine. Now we have to don’t walk outside half a sleep to use the toilet at night.

It has cooled off to the low 100’s instead of 140 degrees plus. I know it was hot when soldiers who served in Iraq were complaining saying that it is hotter here than Iraq.

I blogged about the 4th of July and started thinking about your blog after I published. Good to see another post from you. Happy 4th! And, as always, be safe.

Hard to imagine the weather actually being as hot as 140f? Yikes! Then again at least it's dry heat there? Well.. all the same I'm sure it feels like a sauna all the time.. Don't know how you adjust to that..
