Been Away

Old, well-used wheelbarrow sits in the dust. This one is in relatively pretty good shape; it still has a wheel on it.

I realize that I've been away from the blog for a bit. I hate posting without putting up some photos, and to be honest I've been very lazy with my camera lately. I'd like to claim that I've been so busy that I haven't had time to take a single photo, but that's just not the case.

Christmas passed here in Baghdad just like most days do here. The bureau was busy doing "lives" while at the same time preparing a nice holiday dinner for everyone. It's the only day of the year when the entire staff sits around the table and shares a meal, one which is made by various members from all over the world. It was truly an eclectic experience. Again, I'm remiss for not having my camera handy.

All is well here in Iraq. We visited the 98th Combat Support Hospital (CSH) the other day, which for those that aren't familiar it would be akin to a medium sized hospital in the U.S. Of the 15+ soldiers that were admitted to the facility for care not a single one of them was there for "battlefield injuries". Most were be treated for various skin infections due to cuts and an animal bite. I take that as good news.

I'm hoping to get out today with my camera so I'll have some photos to put up in the next couple of days. Best to all.

I really like that photo, it's not everyday where you see a wheel barrel. :)
