Merissa and Tyler
So this is a food blog and shall remain so, but occasionally I feel like posting something personal and this is one of those times.
I have a Son, Tyler who has been in the Navy for 3 years and is on his second deployment upon the USS Eisenhower Aircraft Carrier off the coast of Somalia. (Chasing and scaring pirates I think) In fact I think the Navy ship that took care of the three pirates a week ago is assigned to his flotilla. Here's a staged photo of him he recently sent me. Why he's not in uniform is beyond me, but that's Tyler. Rules? What Rules??
Secondly, my daughter, Merissa has trained for seven years to be a Flight Medic and deployed today to Iraq. She probably won't be back for 360 or so days, and I shall count every one.
Don't get me wrong, I'm terribly proud of the both of them.
All I'm saying is, I want my kids back in this country. I miss them so.
