I think I understand how your mother became your sister and hence your brother became your nephew (which sort of parallels my erstwhile wife's experience of being raised by her aunt and uncle because both her parents died when she was very young so that her cousins are brothers and sisters and her aunt and uncle are mom and dad and the cat is community property) and I can even grok the concept of being your own, aunt, but what I really want to know is what the heck Matt is standing next to in that picture?

LOL, I'm not entirely sure, but it looks as if someone snapped the pic from standing atop some army vehicle, so I think it's part of that vehicle somehow. Don't know if it's a tank or truck or what. I'll shoot him a message on MySpace and find out...cuz it's bugging me now. I looked at that pic a thousand times and never noticed it! Grin

Adding to the confusion, it must be dust sensitive, since it's got some sort of fabric covering on it.

Ah, now that you mention it, that does look like the hood of a vehicle in the lower right corner. I have the feeling that the gizmo with the four tubes and the electrical connector is not a pizza oven.

Maybe the cover is to keep the dust out of the pizza?

Yeah, that must be it. Anchovies are shy.

Mystery solved! It's a smoke grenade launcher. There's 4 on each side and they are used to create a 360 degree smoke screen to surround the vehicle.

I imagine that could come in very handy in Baghdad these days!

I pray every day that things like that will never have to come in handy to protect him...that he'll never be in that kind of danger. But if it came down to it, I'm thankful for all the technology designed to protect our men and women over there. I may not support this war but I fully support the troops.

The joys of life on the road. I managed to come down with a glorious case of food poisoning the day my 5 day holiday is scheduled to begin. I think I got it all out of my system now cuz I feel a lot better than I did 2 hrs ago, so maybe my weekend isn't completely shot.

Yep, I did a stupid thing. I stopped at a truck stop I had been to before and had gotten a queasy stomach from once before, and silly me ordered the exact same thing! The food tasted good, so I was hoping it had only been a one-time thing. I know now not to order burritos from there ever again! It may not have really been food poisoning but it certainly didn't agree with me, and I don't have problems with that particular combination of food from other places, so it must have been something specific to them. It didn't last too long, thankfully, and I was feeling 100% better that evening.

Having fun up here with my friend, but I've discovered a very viable reason to practice abstinence in the form of a certain hyperactive 8-year-old who is to be Lydia's step-daughter. Sweet little thing, but if you're not paying attention to her ALL THE TIME, she can't stand it. I don't see why Pierce and Audrey (from my story) want 10 of them! lol

Just saw a convenience store in Tipton, IN that said: Eat Here and Get Gas. Wish my camera had been handy! smile

Lol, I'll be sure not to eat there...

Now I gotta go cook supper. Then I'll update my site yet again...

[MEMO] Never buy burritos north of the Mason-Dixon line.
