How do you say see you later? Goodbye sounds to final.
Horse neighbor is being shipped off to Afghanistan on Monday. Yes, on Memorial Day. He will be there for a year.
I will miss him dearly.
But what to say.
We are going over for a bbque tomorrow to say our goodbyes.
Maybe I should say "Heard it was 115F there yesterday. At least there isn't the Kansas humidity to go with it"
More than likely hand him a beer and thank him. Thank him for being our neighbor, for being a good friend for almost 10 years, thank him for sacrificing his everything to keep us safe and Free. And when he returns in 1 year time, with the greatest tan ever seen, I will thank him again, and buy him a cold beer.
