Happy New Year!
A Leaky Trailer in Baghdad | Little Ol' Me

Posted on 12/31/2010 1:02:34 PM PST by Allegra

I know I'm not the very first FReeper to see 2011 come in, but I beat a lot of y'all in the US (neener, neener) and just wanted to post a fun, albeit completely useless vanity thread. (I really ought to be ashamed, but sorry to say, I feel no remorse.) :-)

Yes, it just became 2011 on the Weird Side of the World and so far, it doesn't hurt and I'm rather enjoying that new year smell.

I’m normally the guy that jumps all over vanity posts, but I think you get a pass on this one...lol. Having been there, done that in Iraq and other nasty spots, I hope you find a way to celebrate the New Year in proper fashion! We’ll drink one for you here in NC. Take care and be safe!

Yep, the brand new year made it in just fine. It's all good.

The celebratory gunfire the locals love to perform has even quieted down now - 24 minutes into the year.

Say Hello to Sid(iki) fer me....;o)

Heh! You know me all too well.

Happy 2011!

Why, thank you, kind sir.

It will be morning here, sun shining and everything, but I will enjoy that bit of a lift as I feel the toast from afar. :)

Happy New Year!

I think she’s planning on bringing Pablo home with her

I hope not.

Wasn't Pablo the kid who handled the pigs whom she handled
accidentally and thereby was at risk of pig flu? I forget.

What I do remember:

"We need a vocalist and four hours of material by 8:00 Saturday! HELP ME!"

Classic.

I can't guarantee that.

Pablo is, after all, very wily.

Happy New Year Allegra.

Keep your chin up, your head down, and your nose to the grindstone (except of course when in the chowhall).

Seriously, I pray that you and your fellow troopers will stay safe and come home soon to your families.

Wow, I just turned 64 two days after Christmas, and it never ceases to amaze me that I would live to see the day I would be able to wish someone across the Globe and instantaneous Happy New Year.

Think I'll stick around a few more years (Lord willing of course) to see what other marvels are in store.
