To the cabin I go

The posts will be much more infrequent, not that I've ever really reached a level of consistency.

At any rate, thank you all for your support. With a full beard and water awaiting, I will now travel to a beautiful cabin sitting on a crystal clear lake. I do hope to provide updates occasionally, but where I'm going, there's not even a telephone pole nearby. However, I will make it a priority to write at least one post a week until the book is completed. I'll find a library or a hotel with free wireless or something, because I have fantasy football coming up.

Thanks again for all your support. You have given me the courage to chase a dream I've had since I was six.

On another note, I found this article interesting. It states relatives and friends of soldiers in Iraq support the war. Imagine that.

Yeah, Casanova, imagine that... families of service men and women supporting the war... go figure. But, as they say in the article, it's all about having that connection and knowing what's really going on over there, not just what the news reports. If it wasn't for you, though, alot of us wouldn't have a clue as to what was really happening. You've made a huge difference for so many, but I've told you that before.

I know you're looking forward to your time at the cabin on the lake, finishing your book and becoming a famous - or, infamous - writer... but, I gotta tell ya... I miss you already...... :)

Stick a line in the water on occasion. Fresh bass, perch or walleye taste great and all writing and no playing make for a dull book.

Thanks for all you've done keeping us informed. Best of luck on your effort.

My brother is in the Infantry and currently serving in Iraq.....none of us support the war, and none of us hav a positive outlook. Polls have also indicated that this war has done nothing but help recruit insurgents. It's my belief that Iraq will never be stable enough to pull-out....do we want to sacrifice another 2,000 lives and then decide that we want to pullout because things arent working? I think not. You may not agree with the views of this blog, but its an excellent one nonetheless...... www.ftssoldier.blogspot.com Most soldiers dont support this war either, thats why they have such a hard time fighting it, and we have such a hard time recruiting new soldiers.
