I now know THIS is a sign of a big storm - Typhoon - heading to Yokota. Yesterday, I was simply perplexed.  I walked over for lunch and to the BX to price some supplies I need to buy.....it was windy and raining as I walked back to my room. 

By the time I hit the hotel I was soaked...though I had an umbrella. I was very thankful for a free dryer. ::snort:: 

Internet was out all day. I got a lot done.  Plan as of now is to tweak the training schedule and leave around 4 p.m. from here to the train station....then on to Narita Airport where I will meet the family. We fly to the states at mid-night. I think I can figure this out. I'll MPS a lot of stuff home to Misawa. I'll have lots of  animal print to wear in the states - but there you have it! 

There will be a ceremony in CA on the 26th of June and then a ceremony in CO on the 1st or 2nd of July. This one will be military style with honor guard etc at FT something or other. Michael will conduct both. Prayers appreciated for details being finalized....and peace and comfort. I'm struggling to wrap my mind and heart around the fact that an era is over and Dad G is gone. 

This is the sky today - our ladies will be able to fly in from Korea and America..... seems a bit bi-polar out there. 

Waiting for chapel staff from Zama to show up and spring me from the hotel, check into new rooms, and pick up a rental van. 

Choosing Joy!

Sis & family:s

even tho you can't see i...our arms have reached way over to you in Japan, down to those in Texas of of course here in Oregon.... we are sending lots of hugs. About all we can really do is pray and that we are doing.....a lot of other people are also praying.

You had a neat father-in-law who loved life and was not afraid to live up to and speak his convictions etc. That and the fun times you all had can't be forgotten..... Dad/I PTL for the times they were at our home, and the times we were down with them.

Praying & Praying for you all. love/prayers - dad/mom t.

OH! do you know where your plane will be landing in the States.

Sounds like the Colorado service is going to be awesome and so right for a WW11 Vet.
