Outlaw13 Meets the Gov

Texas Governor Rick Perry has been in Iraq for a few days, visiting Texas National Guard troops, and troops from other units based in Texas. Some would call it political grandstanding, but I think it's a pretty decent thing to do.

Outlaw13, a good friend who is currently on his third deployment to the enchanted metropolis of Baghdad, met and conversed with Mr. Perry for a few minutes near one of his unit's Apaches. I'm pretty certain that the meeting meant more to Outlaw than if he had been selected to swoon on command for our Commander in Chief's recent trip over.

Awww, that's nice!! Hope all is well with him "over there".

(Plus, don't tell him I said this, but he looks just like my dad. Just needs a bit more gray.)

He seems to be doing well, things are a lot calmer than his previous two visits. Some of us are theorizing that all the Dr. Pepper he drinks is keeping the grey away!

Kath, I don't know how you feel, but I'm thinking the Dr. Pepper is working really well for him. Maybe I need to give a few hundred cases to my husband.

Dr. Pepper does seem to cure an awful lot of things! And way more fun that Grecian Formula, I'm sure.
