Viva Chile!

Congrats to the rescuers/experts on successfully extracting the 33 miners!  I am very happy that it did not take until Xmas to get them out of there.  To be there an unbelieveably 69 days and survive 17 days on little food before being discovered is amazing.  You need to see John Stewart making fun of the news coverage .

Today is pay day and membership night at the club.  I wonder what the menu is?  I haven’t been there in months.  I pay membership fees of $18 and the club serves a nice meal to members once a month.  You also get a discount at restaurants on base. My boss’ going away dinner is next Wednesday.  He said that employers are in a bidding war to hire him at three times what he makes now.  Before he leaves Asia, he is going to China, Guam and a tiny Microindonesian island.  He wanted to stay in the AF for another 4 years which would give him 30 years.   Nevertheless, he is in a really good position financially, so I am not worried about him at all.  

Still tracking down my missing Army decoration.  I think it may have been found, but will know next week.
