Well, we're movin on up....

Hello all. Not much new here, except my residence. I moved into a new trailer, due to the already present enhancements, and made some enhancements of my own. First of all, the already present enhancements, look at this:

Yes, it is a covered patio. Neat, huh. I figure, it'll protect from rain and, most importantly, excessive rays in the summer. Can't believe this CHU was left empty!!! So I took it. After moving in I realized I needed more storage. Well, scavenging is still an acceptable art, and I was looking into an abandoned building next to the maintenance facility I oversee. The building was condemned but only after they started renovating it. I found some nice shelving and, thanks to a little Velcro, I did some Trading Spaces action and:

Wallah, I now have a "kitchen area". Necessity is the mother of invention. I know, not alot of work stuff being talked about, not that I can talk about it here, but you do get insight into how we fill the rest of our time here.

One more thing, I think I figured out why they sent me here. Look:
A lake!!! Now all I need is a boat and I will be back in my element. It is not a big lake, but I AM only a LCDR. It's a water reservoir and isn't very deep, so I won't get a submarine. Oh well. I hope you are enjoying these updates and I will endeavor to update things more often. I hope you all are well and I will update again soon. Hasta luego!!

Happy Easter!!!

Hello all. It is Easter and I find the theme of rebirth interesting as I am in the desert. Even here there is rebirth however. Check out these pictures:
It makes me wonder what this place may have looked at back in ancient Babylon. I don't usually quote the bible, but I found these excerpts interesing:
Psalm 137: By the Rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea we wept.
When we remembered Zion We hung our harps Upon the willows in the midst of it.
Revelation 18/2 :And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Interesting huh? Well, I've waxed religious during a holy period. Well I hope all of you are well and have a Happy Easter and Passover. In the spirit of my current location, Salaam Alekhem.
