Long Week

Dad is back from Vegas, broke as usual so I am glad I had a busy week. I keep pace with the work load and managed to help enough on the 55' project to at least give my two cents worth. The Tremec is in, new oil pan and pump are in. All that is left is the details and parts that weren't ordered.

Aside from that Dan is off to Iraq on his third tour. Last Tuesday they had a proper send off ceremony at the Dane County Coliseum. Then Friday night we made sure to give him our own send off which left him looking a little rough Saturday morning when I drove him to Camp Douglas/Volk Airfield.

Another send off there and we said our goodbyes. I managed to break the Power Steering Pump in the TrailBlazer trying to get out of the parking lot. Parked in so I was backing forward and reverse and turning as tight as I could when I felt the steering go tight. So there is a automotive theme to the whole trip and news.

Some pictures from the sendoff.

Ok, how is blowing my horn about my brother even automotive themed. Well, his "job" in Iraq will be driving the Command Staff for the 32nd wherever they want to go whenever they want to go. He will be based in Baghdad and I'm sure to hear more from him compared to his previous two deployments. Not sure yet if it will be Humvee's or Burb's. I guess I'll find out when he gets there.

All right, off to work. There is a 07' Grand Prix with the driver side suspension destroyed just calling my name.
