Did you know that the Amazing E is in the military? I think I mentioned it some time ago. He joined the Commissioned Corp of the Public Health Service shortly before we were married. This is the branch of the service under the Surgeon General. It's very small, about 6,000 members made up of specially trained medical related professionals. E is a biomedical engineer, and today he left on his first deployment. It's only for some of this special training. He's not going to Iraq or anything. In fact, it's really unlikely that he ever will. His branch of the service has not been sent into a war since Korea. He'll be back in a couple of weeks.
In the mean time, I will be visiting Chicago next week. I will bring yarn.
