My son is in the Air Force. Has been for a very long time. When he joined, they evidently gave him a “pick where you’d like to be stationed” questionnaire. He picked Greenland. The base is in Thule. Yeah, I think he didn’t know the named it Greenland as a trick. Should have been named Iceland.
Anyway. I’ve decided I’m going to do an OWH “thing” … when I send him cards, I’m not going to write in them. I’m going to try to “theme” them and he can give them to fellow Airmen who need to send cards home to their loved ones. Yeah, I’m a one person show (although Sandy Allnock is all in if I give her his address! I just love her.)
This particular card went in the second box of “surprises” I sent him. The next one will contain – of course – Halloween stuff – they’re supposed to have decorations for their rooms. He’s just going into “night all the time” there … I can’t even imagine how it would be — that cold and night all the time. I guess I’ll find out when he sends me pictures (that I WILL be scrapping). There’s no high speed internet. No cable TV. I may be sending him all of my dvd’s so he can leave them there when he leaves and they can put them in the library.
Okay, off to make another card. Have a wonderful week everyone!
