Happy Thanksgiving!

Just to give you an update on ROB finally... (after all, that was the original intention of this blog until it got hijacked by my trip with Operation Smile!)

The ship was scheduled to leave Bahrain the same day I left (November 6), but a maintenance problem kept them there for almost two weeks longer. It was probably a nice break for them, truthfully. I got several emails from Rob describing nice dinners they had at local restaurants! And of course I'm sure everyone enjoyed the opportunity to go out a have a beer or two (or more!) in the evenings!

They're back underway now and unfortunately were at sea for Thanksgiving. As far as I know, they don't have any more interesting port visits planned until they start to head home. Right now they're scheduled to be at sea for Christmas, but maybe they'll be able to pull together a quick port visit somewhere!

He did call me today for Thanksgiving, but we were only able to talk for about half an hour. It was great to hear his voice, though.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! After going on the mission so recently, I definitely realize how much I have to be thankful for on this day.

Hi. I just wanted to say thank you to Rebecca for doing such a great blog. I am so busy all the time that I can't always write everyone I would like to but Rebecca has been nice enough to commit countless hours to updating the blog site so everyone knows what is going on in our lives.

Seeing Rebecca in Bahrain was priceless. We are such good friends that when I am gone we both lose the person we connect to and draw support from. To see her even for just a few days was great.

Well, I need to run to another meeting. Everyone will be in my thoughts and I hope eveyone has a happy holiday season.
