Went to the comedy club last night and had a pretty good time. The comedians were Barry Kennedy, Cal Post and Daniel Tirado. I am hoping to hit it again before I leave Saturday morning. I also got to see some other comedians on Thursday night that were pretty funny. Over all the trip wasn't bad. I sold my first thing on Craigslist, my old winter tires from the Honda for like $260. They were Michelin and had only been used for 5 months. That money was my trip to the Spa money and that was good too. The drive there and back was ok but the distance now is almost double but still better than being in Albuquerque, NM.

The job

OK So now I have been settled in the job for a few weeks and it has been a busy few weeks.  I am glad my position is community relations as that is what I wanted to do but I never realized how busy that position can be especially when you ‘re in a community as supportive of its troops as Augusta, GA.  Of course that’s a two-sided sword, it means they also ask a lot of you, which is where I come in.  With Veteran’s day coming up, I have had at least 10 requests for things such a speakers, color guard, firing detail team and of course the Band.  It takes a lot of coordination and you can’t always support everyone, which isn’t fun, then I also get the wonderful job of telling those we can’t support.

That is not the only thing I do, I also deal with all volunteer requests, which come in often as well.  This does give the soldiers the opportunity to give back to the community they are currently a part of. 

Another thing I am working on is feeding the troops for Thanksgiving.  Several churches have invited troops to join them in a Thanksgiving meal and trying to coordinate that is not as easy as I thought.
