Just need one more week to get out of this sling so I can be an ambidextrous cigar smoker again

Rob, if you need CA stickers please post a thread asking for some. A generous BOTL/SOTL here on the site will send you one.

When you run low take a weekend and head over to Seattle, we will get you filled back up right. We don't have the best accommodation but do have ok ones for getting together for a herf.

If I get an opportunity, which is doubtful :( , I will take you up on that offer to visit Seattle!!

And I will post a mailing address if there is one when we get there. I did pack about a quarter of them as give-a-way cigars - you know, the cheaper ones for guys who may toss it after about a third :sad

Oh, and having the callsign "Cigar-6" everyone expects you to have cigars to hand out :)

Great call sign.

I have to agree :tu. during my last deployment we had a First Sergeant step down so he could come home and retire. In his change of responsibility speech he took it upon himself to change me from "Strykehorse Spirit" to "Cigar-6" and it stuck!

You deserve 30 hours worth every day, but I am glad you got at least a little.

Glad they got there. I remember how much a good cigar helped me relax at the end of the day while I was deployed. Anything I can do to help.

Here is another pic from our exercise. A little bit too cold to enjoy a cigar out here.

Was at Yakima myself right before we deployed. Can't tell you that it gets any better. But good smokes can improve any situation.

I love Washington, hope you stay safe. I can only imagine how delicious that Tat was!
