It was a close game and I have the bad habit of pinching my left nipple when I get nervous.

TheSeeker, I love the caterpillar cupcakes!

Davros, nice picture from the Garden of the Gods. Gorgeous place that I'd like to see again!

Yeah, the photo from Davros was very eye-catching and sweet wasn't it?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

This is a pic of me and a random car parked at a school in northwest Baghdad. The Jesus fish seemed strangely out of place in that environment. Taken in 2008.



This is a bridge that has been destroyed three times. This is the beginning of what is hopefully the final reconstruction. Also, taken in 2008.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

You were a Captain? Very cool.

I can't see your unit patch on your arm but I'm guessing you were in an infantry division or regiment.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks Eddie, it was the 25th Infantry Division. I got out of the Army as soon as we got home. This picture should explain my reasoning. haha. It would also explain why I have a beard and a full head of hair back in my first post in this thread.



It was honestly the best night of my entire life.

Awww. What a great photo!

I got a little misty eyed looking at that pic Use of Time! A heads up would have been nice! Something like, WARNING, emotional response ahead. LOL.

Great photo!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks! I'll give you a warning in the future. My biggest fear getting home was that Ava (daughter) wouldn't recognize me. When I had left she was an 11 month old infant and when I got home there was this walking talking kid with a ponytail. She called me daddy and came right to me like she never knew I was gone. I was so relieved.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Oh, little kids know. They know.

It's part of the magic that is little kids. I don't even have any of my own and I know it.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I can't argue with you on that one. My wife deserves a lot of credit as well. She had pictures in Ava's room and made it part of her nightly routine to say goodnight to the picture and continually reinforce to her who I was.

That is the Williamsburg Bridge between Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I want to walk it.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My friend and I play a game we call "what if this was the start?" in which we make easy climbs super difficult - which usually just ends up with us hanging upside down. Like so:



This new guy took our game kind of seriously, like it was an actual thing and not just us being very weird. So that was amusing.

Again I say that looks like so much fun.

And again I say rocks scare me.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My vertigo would probably cause me to pass out cold about, oh, halfway up that wall. How I managed to get up to the crown of the Statue of Liberty and back down to the pedestal without being carried out on a stretcher is still a mystery, but I'm happy I pulled it off.

Looking out at the vast harbor and sprawling New York skyline from a height of about 300 feet was mesmerizing.
