Dancing the night away (on one good leg:)

I can't remember the last time I felt this damned good! To my good fortune and great pleasure, it was country night in the quad tonight. They have a small stage with a dance floor set up, and the DJ played country music while everyone danced, including me. There was NO way they were keeping me off the floor, particularily when I had found a very good dance partner for myself:-D No, nothing like that, he is wicked cool though. I have this unique ability to find a small group of people and then befriend them rapidly as I did tonight. I was standing outside talking to my brother and gradually the crowd grew. Eventually there was 5 of us heading off to Chinese (I know, in the Midle east no less ROFL), laughing and having a great time. Obviously there was me, my brother, then there was the Bruce Willis lookalike (I kid you not, the guy looks JUST like him, just as wicked good looking), Mr. Firey RED hair, and the Italian. Ok for that matter, they were ALL good looking. I was out with the best looking men around, but of course, I do have that natural charisma:-D Mind you, I was the only one in a non-combat MOS, so the level of pervetness was HIGH ROFL:-D Fun!!! Anyway, after Chinese, I went and showered and changed into PTs, andthen rejoined them inthe quad. It kinda sucked there for awhile, as I was watching everyone dance and I was bummed because I LOVE to dance. Then they played Copperhead Road. Iam sorry, I simply CAN NOT sit still for Copperhead Road!!!! After that it was just a matter of getting Rush (Red hair) to take me out on the floor and two-step:-D I even got to slow dance a time or two with a couple of different guys:) I have laughed and smiled more tonight then I think in all my time in Iraq combined. And hell, that group of guys did more for boosting my lagging self esteem than anything I could have thought of:-D Right now, I am sitting on top of the world and I'll be damned if someone tries to knock me off of my perch:-D

So great to hear that you're having a good time and able to dance and laugh. See? You were worried about your teeth/no-teeth having an effect. It simply can not when you're smile has to do with what's on the inside, not on the outside. I'm glad you had a great time and I'm glad you and your brother can hang out a bit. Stay safe.

Dear Sgt. Lizzie,
This is great news! I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. I kinda went off my rocker when you got hurt. I wrote a little about it on my site. I didn't mean to, but I was ranting about the things that were bothering me...and, well, it kinda popped out. Yeah, suprised me too! I feel like you are my sister, and I can't protect you. I am the oldest, and I always protected my sisters. I would like to get my hands on the bas***d that hurt you... I don't know no stinkin Geneva Convention. When in Rome, do as the Romans do, right? Well, Iraq isn't Geneva! Let me stop. I'm just really grateful you are feeling better.

ALRIGHT!!!! Time to trade those combat boots for cowboy boots, girl! I've got the hat in the car and the world's largest dance floor waiting. The band's warming up and you can two-step the night away!

I can just imagine the size of the smile on your face. This cold winter night is warmer knowing you're happy.

Hey girl! I am so glad you and T. get this time together! Show him the ropes of Blogging!!! Grandma and I have been giving him a hard time, after 2 months of training and deployment halfway across the world he emails us three lines and says there isn't much to write about. For a kid who can talk non stop about the most mundane things he sure doesn't write much @@ LOL

So out dancing with your brother and still don't think we can go out for a while uh huh... no go, we are heading out!
