Greetings all,

For those very rare few who might have wondered where I've been, I have recently moved to the wonderous ROK, (Republic of Korea) so that I might better enjoy my life of liesure and frolicking without care. While I am not quire 'back' yet, as I still have to find a place to live, get my stuff unpacked and said nonexistant home put back together again; I do have the ability to pop in from time to time.

Hope to see more of you all soon,

GD, the one and only

Hey, I'm not among "those very rare few who might have wondered where I've been". I know where you are! We had that phone call, remember? Razz

Hurray, more bad news on my end: I have to go to the local clinic next Tuesday to see a doctor about getting the first physical exam I've had since 1996. I tried to give blood back on Monday and got turned down because I have hypertension, which confirmed what the Walmart blood pressure machine had told me the week before that. Considering that I last gave blood on August 22nd and my blood pressure was peachy then, I'm wondering what could have shot it up to 155/107 in two months. I'm not an alcoholic, I don't smoke, I have a very languid and stress-free job and I don't add salt to everything I eat. So what's causing it?

Mom moved down here around that time, but that's all I can think of. I guess that's what the doctor's going to figure out next Tuesday. And since I don't have medical insurance, I can only wonder how much of my bank account this physical will devour.

Did you ever notice that doctors never tell you how much something's going to cost you until after they've done it? Why is that?

But enough about me. So is this move to South Korea a TDY or a PCS, GD? I don't think you've ever told me that yet. Neutral

We miss you Drakon. I was wondering where you had been because I hadn't seen or heard you for a while. I hope your move will bring you much fun and that the Air Force hasn't treated too badly. By the way your situation reminds me of something a former NCO of mine said to me a long time ago.

I jokingly asked a simple question about why the military doesn't use sex to sell itself like all other products or companies. My NCO at the time responded that that the military does use sex to sell itself. In my confussion I asked him how do they do that. He simply told me that since day I had joined the military don't you feel liked you've been fucked over repeatedly.

Hope that story brings a smile to all you current and ex-military guys.
