We all knew it would be a sweep at the polls … won’t get into it… blah blah blah… bunch of useless politics that proves nothing ever changes.
Show me change and I’ll believe it.
Until now its a bunch of high school elections to rule a country, blaming one another but never being accountable… while doing lip service to change.
This isn’t anything new… it’s a world-wide phenomenon…
And I will continue to call it… bullshit on a stick.
Sadly… people continue to lick that shit up like its going out of business.
So real quick:
I’m off – off to the Middle East for a wee bit.
Probably won’t be blogging much but I am sure I will have plenty of observations for when I get back.
This is my first ‘big-girl’ trip across the pond… never been overseas before.
I plan on making the most of it while in Oman.
In between matches and when out of the boxing ring that is our business trip, I will be armed with an open-mind, open-heart and a culinary palate excited to taste some exotic foods.
Rest assured my camera will never be far behind either.
Looking forward to spending time at the Souk and bringing back some Arabian treasures for my friend Old Iron.
Speaking of which, he’s soon about to embark on his next rotation…
And as you know, when not bound to Nigeria, he’s most definitely not bound to the blog…
So the posting chez nous could be sparse, few and far in between.
So we bid you … à bientôt mes amis!
See you all shortly… should you not hear from us in between…
-Don’t count us out completely though as I will have some free time on my hands for this one, unlike the whirlwind-esque traveling that I usually commit myself to and do plan on putting some digital ink down regarding my re-integration and participation in the supposedly normal world that has labeled itself the American South. I always have a good time just hitting the pub for a couple of cocktails and doing the people watching thing, which usually generates some interesting observations.
(-Like the fact that I have been overseas for so long that I have no game AT ALL…)
No worries though as this one I will be spending with family and friends, to include the spawn of my seed, to be hereafter dubbed “New Iron”. I am looking forward to the new feel of the country as well as I have just seen the election totals and friends, I am pleased as to the outcome. A holiday is coming up as well that I haven’t spent in the States for some time so I get to see if I still have the chops to give thanks like the rest of my family of lunatics, and of all things KC is coming to the celebration to check out how us Southerners “do it up right” for the holidays, so that should be a treat.
All in all good times will be had by one and all.
Carry on as you were.
