Garrett's tour of duty in Iraq is half over. He gets to come home for two weeks. Yeah! He leaves Iraq at 9:00 Monday morning, flies to Kuwait, and then picks up a commercial flight to Atlanta with a stopover in Germany. Iraq time is eight hours ahead of Eastern time. That should put him here Monday night or Tuesday morning.
I am SO excited about him coming home. The first six months have just crawled by. I hope the second half goes by much faster. I'm praying he's not going to re-enlist!
One thing on his agenda while he's home is to go to Swainsboro and pick up the motorcycle he's bought. Every day there's a new package on the porch for him; two helmets, a black leather vest, and who knows what else. The boxes are stacked head high in his room. That boy can spend money faster than anybody I've ever seen.
But he is grown. I reckon he can do what he likes with his own money. I just hope one of those helmets fits me, 'cause I'm ridin' that bad machine as soon as it gets home!
