The pool gang, from L to R: John, Nancy, Chris, Kristy, Hayder. This is the Slayer Pool. Check out that muscle head in the background trying to ruin the shot. Goofball. Those are Air Force guys. You gotta love a pool where people show up in uniform and carrying weapons...Shane's not pictured because he was out getting us some pizza.
Today was AWESOME! Last weekend, Chris (New New Guy) and I went to the pool on Camp Slayer. We both have Saturdays off, and we wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Folks have been touting the two pools here quite a bit and we decided to try Slayer first...the other pool is the Aussie pool, and it's just too close to the Palace and work.
Well, the pool was so great (not too crowded, not too hot) that we decided to have a go at it every Saturday. Today, we were also joined by Old New Guy (Shane), Kristy, and John and Haidar from the IED team.
We had tons of fun swimming and lounging and eating pizza. It was more crowded this week, but not so crowded that we didn't get a lounge chair, so it was tons of fun. People watching is always fun, especially at the pool.
Anyway, this blog is here to show you that nobody should feel sorry for us out here. It's not so bad.
