Afghan dust & deployment conditions claim laptop

Rex's busted up laptop during R&R in Germany.

From Liisa, SMSgt Temple’s wife: Rex’s beat up laptop has most likely taken its last breath. It was being held together by tape and sheer good luck when I last saw it in Germany – and now it appears to have died completely. So Rex has to figure out a workaround (hopefully through MWR) or simply go shopping at Bagram. Which means no blog entry or new pictures today.

Charlie snuggles up with Rex's clothes.

On a totally unrelated note, here is a photo of our dog Charlie after he found Rex’s unwashed clothes from Germany. I was about to do the laundry from the trip but now our “kids” – two Goldendoodle dogs Sam and Charlie – have decided otherwise. Apparently they really like the scent of their “Dad.”

Donated school supplies at WUSF Radio and TV

And another totally unrelated tidbit – I got this photo from Mark Schreiner at WUSF TV and Radio; all these supplies have come in from the stations viewers and listeners for Rex’s School Supplies for Afghan Children project.  According to Mark some unknown Santa also dropped off almost 150 Beanie Babies and other stuffed toys at the station with a note that said: “Some toys for their desks.” (If you are new to reading Rex’s blog, please check the school supplies project tab at the top of the page.)

    if ever a picture told a thousand words — your dog spoke volumes.
