Hurry up and wait.

Saturday, September 6, 2008

For those of you who are new to our blog, or maybe just didn't know, Christopher is in the United States Air Force. They do these things, called exercises, where they pretend like the threat level has increased, and they mock deploy, and do all of those other fun war game things that totally interrupt our every day lives. Well, even though Christopher is an aircraft hydraulics mechanic, when they play these games, hes a security forces augmentee? He dresses up in all of the heavy war gear, straps a gun to his chest, and stands at an unknown gate for 14 hours in the middle of the night. Hes been on telephone standby for the past 2 days. We thought for sure we'd get woken up at 3am to his Black Sabbath ring tone, but have yet to hear anything. I thought I'd post a picture of him all dressed up and ready to play...

Edit: And of course, as soon as we started accomplishing something around the house, he gets called in.

Who thought it was a good idea to give Chris a gun?? If you guys ever come out this way maybe we can go shooting. I think we still have a gun or two.

I remember those days as I was also in the Air Force long time ago and played those games.
