Hello? Is This Thing On?

Today I embark on a journey of unknown proportions.  This is where I crack the seal on all that has been bottled up inside the ol’ brain pan for these many years.  It has been too long since my days of passing along my musings while I was deployed with the Army; over a decade of holding things inside, actually.  So, now let us see if we can get a little traction and talk about some of the random humor, sadness, love, tragedy, anger, quirks, and joy.  Those are just a few aspects of this thing called life that come to mind.  My time riding in the passenger seat is over.  It is time to take the wheel again and see where I can go…and yes, there will most certainly be U-turns.
