I was hoping for Shelly to jump out of a cake...not that we're that type of couple, but that would have been great! Instead, like most nights in Baghdad I was greated with unwanted fireworks. I did get a surprise slice of cake and some fifty folks sing me happy birthday in the dinning facitlity. I got a homemade card from the kids, a cd and new sandles from Shelly, some iTunes cash, salami, cheese, and pistachios just new a few things. Father's Day was better. I got to webcam with my kids. I love talking with them. Then dinner...I had prime rib, lobster, asperagus and mac and cheese.
Eventhough I had a good time, I wish I was at home with my wife and kids. Only four more months to go!
