My nephew's home!

Hi all my blogger friends!

I'm not going to be online much today because my nephew has returned from Camp Pendleton in San Diego. He has finished his stint with the U.S. Marines is going back to school in upstate New York.

He's come to visit his aunt and uncle after a long time and we are beside ourselves with joy!! He spent 6 months in Iraq and the rest of the time as I mentioned in Camp Pendleton all away across the country.

I don't know what were going to do today - he would like to see Batman- The Dark Knight in Imax (I would too! ) so we're going to see if we can get tickets.

We'll go out for a big steak dinner (if that's what he wants) tonight!

I thank you for all your comments at Skywatch Friday. I'll try to return your comments tomorrow late in the afternoon.

I'm going to try to get in a PhotoHunters post for tomorrow

Thanks for your understanding... you understand, right?

Enjoy the homecoming! I just wrote about our son [and his apartment damage from the Tropical Storm Eduoard over Houston, and him being in hurricanes while stationed in Japan during his Marine Corps Stint!] Glad to know your nephew made it through USMC....and I love his ambition to continue his education.

Way to go nephew of 'the teach'!!!! Way to go.

Batman at Imax and then a steak dinner sound like an awesome way to treat this fine young man.

'The Dark Knight' is a fantastic film, so I hope you do get to see it. Welcome back to your nephew!

Have a wonderful visit with your nephew, Mary.
Sounds like a movie and dinner will be a well-deserved change for him.

Please thank him for me as well ;-)

I thank everyone for all your good wishes! We had a wonderful time! We did see Batman at an IMAX theater (more about that in another post) and had the best steak at Peter Luger's the premier Steak House in NYC! I think Jim (my nephew's name) had a great time, I know we did. I told him what all you guys said and how appreciative people are for his service... You are all the best!

I'm getting here late, so he's probably come and gone by now. But I did want to say thanks to the young man for his service, and I hope you'll pass that on to him.
