Guess who's coming home?


I made this widget at MyFlashFetish.com.



It's been a long time but Andy is coming home! He hasn't been home since last Christmas so we are really looking forward to seeing him. He was actually supposed to be on leave starting the 15th so we were looking forward to a nice long time together, but they postponed his date. He will only be here for less than a week, because he is being transferred from Fort Carson in Colorado to Fort Campbell in Kentucky, where he will be joining the 101st Airborne division.
He has to report for duty there on October 10; which means that with time driving from Colorado to Michigan, and then from Michigan to Kentucky the time will be short.
Bob has vacation days to spare so he is flying down to Colorado on Thursday and will drive back home with Andy. We thought that would be a nice time for the two of them. They plan to be home Friday night. Andy will be gone for the weekend, but we have next week off and will do some fun things together. He will probably leave on the 8th.
I can't wait to see him!
