Missing Joe...

Not sure why I'm missing him already, but I am. I don't see him during the week anyway, and I travel on weekends every month or two, so we're not out of our normal separation period yet.

But he started his new job this week. He's in training to be a truck driver with a training driver for the next 3 weeks. After that, his schedule is 14 days on and 2 days off.

So I'm missing him...

Smoky hike in the Wasatch

I beat the heat, though. It's still under 80 (barely), but it was nice this morning, and since I was on the west side of the mountain, most of the hike was in shade.

You can see smoke from the Alpine fire in the air. I wasn't breathing too much of it, but I stopped when the trail turned east, thinking I'd be heading into it (and my quads had nearly had it).

It has a kind of strange beauty...

They're persistent, I'll give them that

This one has the fewest grammatical and spelling errors of any I've received. They're getting good... But still, why would I get an email from someone who doesn't have a Yahoo account?

Sitting and knitting at the airport. Usually I fly out early Monday morning, but Delta's flights are ridiculously priced right now, so I'm on an indirect Southwest flight for a while. I'd rather stay home with Bob and Joyce on Sunday, but it's not worth nearly $400 more each week. :(

Parking went up a dollar here in Sacramento. Not sure what they're thinking... Gotta pay for the new terminal somehow, I guess. At least the weather is gorgeous here today.

Dear Friend,

Thanks for your mail. I apologize for my late response; it's due to the nature of my Job here in Afghanistan. I have secured the money Eleven Million US Dollars (US$11,000,000.00 as being agreed and have every proof of this transaction only what I need is your assistance as I am ready now to transfer the fund to your personal bank account.

I will transfer the fund through HSBC Bank as I have discussed with the Bank Manager, They do International fund transfer. I was advised by HSBC BANK Manager to transfer the fund to your bank account through swift transfer as it is the fastest and easiest way of fund transfer, which I will scan and send to you the transfer payment slip as soon as the fund is been transferred directly to your personal Bank account. I will inform you on what to do when I finally transfer the complete money into your bank account as your share still remains 20% of the total fund.

All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this Fund have been worked out. This transaction is 100% free risk but requires 100 percent confidentiality. This is a golden opportunity which much not be allowed to slip out of any careless acts and utterances.

I have intentionally left out the final details for now until I hear from you. To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal do send your correct Bank account details so that I can start transferring the fund immediately and your direct mobile Telephone number for easy communication as I cannot leave Afghanistan because of the nature of my work.

I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible via my private EMAIL: (capt.brightr@blumail.org) and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity, do not disclose this transaction to anybody as to protect my duty with the US Army.

Thanks and Best Regards in anticipation of your response
