    So - I was sitting here talking with my pal Valentino; he's in from out of town. He'd never seen Fort Lewis, and hadn't driven a car. I let him drive as I took him on a quick tour around my office. I work for the Staff of the Commander of Fort Lewis, WA, and I (that's 1st) Corps.

    This is where I work - just adjacent to this building in another which looks just about exactly like this one. :)

    These were built before WWII - back when archangel was a teenager.

    Sometimes people won't listen to reason. What to do? Drop a 155mm Heat round upon their head.

    No - Minnesota I think. :)

    GotZoom has a niece. She's got a class project to send him around the country/world/whatever.

    :)

    Tomorrow Valentino will see the Space Needle.

    Most miles wins. Has gone from Rochester, MN to Lake Charles LA, to Mesa AZ and now Seattle. Then on to New York.

    I'm the cool Uncle. Not sure if she will win..but all these pictures and miles will definitely solidify my coolness.
