Ok, I'm back now

After enjoying (tremendously) DC for a few weeks, we got word that our daughter was injured in Iraq-mortar attack or IAD-depends who you ask. Everything is "classified" to these people-she was laid up in Ramstein (germany) for 3 weeks before they bothered to tell us. Shes going to be OK-eventually. Shes wrestling with some personal demons as well so we're saying our prayers.

So needless to say, I've been a little preoccupied. Now that things have settled down, I hope I can rejoin you all and pick up where we left off.

So, whats for dinner??

I'm so sorry to hear this, smoke. It must be awful for you and of course, your daughter. Is she back stateside yet? We're glad to have you back and please keep us up on her progress.
