I saw a red fox this morning on the golf course. I was driving down the number 11 fairway just before dawn. It was still pretty dark, but there was beginning to be a little bit of light... enough so I could see anyway. All the sudden I see something streaking across the fairway. My first instinct was squirrel (they're red around here), but then I realized it was way too big for that. I then realized that the red thing with the big bushy tail was indeed a red fox. It was weird. Pretty sure I've never seen a fox before. I knew we had them around here, but had never seen one. Now I know why hunting them was such a big deal to the British because that little sucker was fast! His coat must've been pretty brilliant as well, considering I could see it clearly through the dark and the fog at about 50-75 yards. Anyway, that's my story for today.
Like a fox... like a fox... like a fox... on the run!
... the five day forecast: 61/37; 62/38; 64/42; 68/43; 67/46
... oh yeah ... and the low tonight is 36. Had to call the landlord today to ask him to turn on the heat. Sure am glad it's included in the rent.
Well, i'd best be gettin' to bed. Have to work in the morning. I don't usually have to work Saturdays but it's the last and biggest golf tournament of the year (Army vs. Air Force) and they need everyone. My job should only take about 3 hours though. Just two more weeks left and i'll be done for the season.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I'll try to be better about that in the future, now that i'll have more time.
Everyone have a great weekend!
We moved into our apartment last friday and just got internet today (one week later). So for the last week our internet access has been extremely scarce, but now we have it again and are no longer out of touch with the world! Yaaaay!!!
Also, I went to my job orientation on Tuesday, then immediately following that we went to get our ID cards, so we can now get on base by ourselves and have full privileges. The only thing left to do really is take our driver's license test and register our car. That is scheduled for August 2nd unless we can manage to get in sooner, but I doubt it.
Anyway, things are looking up. I start work on Monday. Boxes are finally starting to get here. We've received 7 in the last 2 days so that's a good sign... unfortunately have of it has been winter clothes. Figures... but at least it shows they're not getting lost!
One last thing for now. We ordered a Vonage phone line so anyone can call us free of charge. Had to send it to dad's house, but he put it in the mail a few days ago, so hopefully it should be here next week. I was able to transfer my old cell phone number (just ask if you don't have it) so i was pretty happy about that. Therefore, anyone can call us free of charge. It's just like dialing a houston area code, just please remember that we are 7 hours ahead!
That's it. Talk to you all later. I'll be able to be on skype once again if anyone wants to video chat!
p.s. - i also forgot to mention that we now have an APO (Army Post Office) address. It is PSC 1 Box 4102, APO AE 09009. You can send us mail there for just a postage stamp!
I got a job working on the golf course which means we get logistic support and can stay in the country legally! Woo hooooo!!!
Thank the Lord for answered prayers!
