Uncle Sam Wants You (NOW)


We had quite a scare this morning. Both Bob and I happened to have the day off. Around 10:00 the doorbell rang. Bob opened the door to find an Army Sergeant standing there. "We are looking for Mr B." he said. Bob tells him that he is Mr B. "No", the man replies - "A younger Mr B, he is supposed to ship out today". "WHAT! He is not supposed to leave until July 19". Bob called Andy who was working to find out if he had papers here, and the sergeant called his office. After several calls it was discovered that there was a mix-up with the papers. Andy's recruiter had been called home after his Mothers' sudden death and things got goofed up. He does leave on July 19. We all lost a few years of our lives, and although we still won't be excited to send him off in July, at least we will be prepared!

Arggh! They sure know how to keep you on your toes. No - he can't leave yet. We've got him until July!

I'm certainly glad that was a mistake. I would not have been a happy camper if he had left. Tom said it's a good thing Andy wasn't home alone and just left with him. You would have just found a note on the counter "Left for Basic Training. See ya soon."
:) That Andy...
