    My oldest son had an in-class assignment to write a letter to a veteran. He chose to write a letter to me. :) Who wouldn't love to get a letter like this?

    I thumbtacked the original in my office. He's such a good kid. :biggrin

    That's pretty cool!

    I only did my one year obligatory army service in Finland... but seeing as my country is in no war and just about never sends its troops anywhere, I only really had a chance to experience the freezing winters, being left alone to fend for ones-self for a few weeks in the wilderness, and other "ranger" related experiences...

    Was good times tho', I don't regret it.

    What I don't appreciate is the modern kids who tend to put down such experiences these days, they have no idea what they're missing out on my skimping the army service. That was a memorably year, living in the wilderness with a bunch of buddies, shooting sweet guns, planting mines, taking a dump in the forest... haha :D

    I just bought a sword... a replica of some Japanese Anime.

    It's over 5 foot tall! I wonder how the guy in the anime manages to sheath his sword because it's too long for me to sheath back into the holster, and I'm not that short :D

    Looks cool on the wall tho'.

    Yeah, I think that's gonna become a meme here at work. :p

    "I think I'm just about done with the CCIE update."
    "Wow, that's great. I'm glad you didn't die."

    Comedy gold. :biggrin

    Maybe his is extendable... 5 foot sheathed, retracting to a couple feet sheathed.
