Well it’s been about 5 1/2 months since my friend in Turkey left for the Army and I know I’m not the only one who thinks it was probably the longest 5 1/2 months ever. He’s got another four weeks (and yes it is exactly 4 weeks) and then he comes home. What amazes me is that even though “home” is not anywhere close to me I’m still absolutely thrilled. It amazes me how strong a bond can be no matter what the physical distance. If somebody can hog another person from over 1000 miles away I’m going to definitely do so.
