"Thoughts From A Sleep Deprived Mind"

 


YOU CAN TAKE THE BOY OUT OF TEXAS...

We got a text on Saturday night at about 8:10.  It said, "I am sucking Texas air!!!"  It was from our soldier boy, Eric.  We flew him in from Fort Riley, Kansas to pick up his new truck and spend the last day of Celebration with us.

He is so happy when he is home.  Not because of us or his sister or friends...but because he is a Texas boy! He had a sergeant once that told him it was the soldiers from Texas that were always willing to go the distance.  Whether it was a fight, a battle, a challenge or whatever.  Texas boys are a proud breed.  While we were at Wal Mart, Eric went over to the Vietnam Veteran who was the greeter.  They talked for a while and then I watched as the Veteran took off his glove and shook Eric's hand as they thanked each other for their service.  Quite a moment for mom!

He was thrilled he got to stop at Sonic and get a bacon cheeseburger with jalapenos!  No Sonic in Junction City, Kansas.  He had breakfast at a Whataburger...a jalapeno cheese burger.  No Whataburgers in Junction City, Kansas.  He also said he couldn't get good jalapenos up there either.  Frankly, what he ate on Sunday would have killed me...but he was happy.  And sometimes, you just gotta make your soldier happy!  Especially if he is still your little boy.
