Thread: Back home!!!

    Default Back home!!!

    Hey all!!!! Just wanted to let those out there know I've made it home (finally?) from the big sand box and am extremely anxious about my NOBO next month . Just wanted to give a hollar out to all those who have been extremely gracious in assisting me on my preparations since I have joined. You guys have been a world of help! Look forward to the good times next month and interacting with fellow WBer's!

    Oh well, oh well I feel so good today!
    We just touched down on an international runway.
    Jet-propelled back home from overseas to the USA!
    Iíll never forget when my freedom bird hit the tarmac at JFK. The cabin crew was playing the Linda Ronstadt version of Chuck Berryís song.
    Iím so glad Iím living in the USA!
    Everyone was yelling and clapping and stomping.
    Yes Iím so glad Iím living in the USA!
    I donít know how the pilot kept the plane straight because we were rockin'.
    Anything you want we got it right here in the USA!
    And hell, that was just the Cold War. Welcome back! Itís good to have you home. Take a break and take a hike, you've earned it.
    You never turned around to see the frowns
    On the jugglers and the clowns
    When they all did tricks for you.
