My View

Who wouldn't want a view like this?

I'm so in love with these little boys. I understand now how you can love someone so much and yet they drive you bonkers sometimes. I get it.

February 25, 2011. That day my view will change a little. We will be leaving Abilene. Mike's career will take a turn and he will be in pilot training. He will be flying UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or as they are now being called RPA (Remotely Piloted Aircraft) --don't you love the AF with all their acronyms???

Training will begin (again) at Randolph AFB in San Antonio, TX. Mike did his initial nav. training at Randolph. We have sweet memories of Jack coming home to that house, of my beautiful green lawn and our wonderful neighbors. It will be fun to be back. One of our most favorite parts about living in San Antonio is that people will come visit you. We love company. So plan your vacation around Sea World, the Alamo and Riverwalk. We'll take care of your lodging. :-)

I'm going to miss my home on Montana street, but I'm thankful that we get to take those sweet little boys with us to be part of the view at our next home.

My friend Amber's husband just left for a year of flying UAVs in Afghanistan (while she's pregnant!). Will Mike be flying them stateside or will he have to leave again after training?

Who knows? :) Mike has heard that their aren't as many deployments and that they are usually on a voluntary basis. So, I'd imagine that he'll do one, but it probably won't be nearly so often as C-130s. Where is Amber's husband stationed? Vegas? That is where we are expecting to go after training, but SD, CA and NM are all options. I hadn't heard that the deployments are 360s! Yikes. That's news to me. Do you know if he is flying a predator?

I did not even notice your dirty windows. :)
