Our redneck Christmas tree. How do you like it? Barbara bought the tree at the exchange, with lights, and then we all decorated it with whatever we could find. The round things are "pogs", which the exchange hands out as change because of the expense of shipping heavy dimes, nickels, and quarters overseas. I have been saving pop tops from soda cans since Day 1 here (old-school stuff that kids won't understand), and I finally found a use for them. Strung together, they make a lovely garland. IF YOU CAN GUESS HOW MANY ARE ON THE TREE, YOU WIN 7,000 IRAQI DINAR (THEIR MONEY). Guess by posting your estimate in the "comments" section for this blog.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY!

14 pogs - total value $1.65. Does the winner get the pogs in addition to the ID?

Nice shots. I was in Baghdad April 03 - Jan 04 - always nice when folks visit you.

Our CPTs and LTs got to see The Prez at Bob Hope Dining Facility out your way. I got to see the WWE *superstars* and also Dave Letterman and Paul Schaeffer over in the Zone of Green.
