Managed to get up, down the hill, and to morning report on time. I think that I mentioned the drill about the first Thursday of the month including extra meetings? So morning report starts at 0700 followed by Joint Staff at 0730. I had a number of things to review, and several even provided some good information.
Ducked back to the office to check on mail, then did my usual couple of hours of stuff including talking to JAG on the phone before heading to Kitzigen.
Amazingly enough – there was actually interesting food in the club lunch line today – bean burritos ,salsa, jalapeños and sour cream>, corn, au gratin potatoes, and broccoli. Lunch, more caffeine, meetings. The decision brief regarding the field exercise later this month to include the most we can accomplish in the time allotted without destroying ourselves or the equipment. Using the cheap method – dolly sets – not cranes.
After recognizing several soldiers who had done outstanding jobs, toured building 98 and the motor pool. I thought the return to the office was going to let me slide downhill for the rest of the day. (a stop at the mail room netted me a package – the blank cards so that I can transfer embroidery patterns from the computer to the sewing machine). A new Handwoven was also in my mail box (Finn Weave? humm, interesting but I am not tackling anything that slow and by hand in this lifetime).
Returned to the office to find that my CSM had picked up Noah; meanwhile George had headed home. Naturally they missed each other so I would up with Mr. Noah for about 45 minutes. Then there was the crisis of the moment, the crisis of the hour.Heading home at 1800, I wondered where the time actually went.
Other than that – the kids are the usual, George saw the pathologist who says he does NOT have a detached retina.
