Re: Baobab and green delights

LOL  How funny....now watch him have to explain to his NCOIC and CO  why 
every cat in Iraq is at his tent door.  HA!  Seriously though, I  think it's a 
great gift.

It  truly is amazing. My son, who is now in Fallujah, called me last
Sunday and  said besides the SMELL and stench of the place, the hardest
thing for him  to get used to is the lack of GREEN stuff. No grass, no
plants. He said,  "Mom, all is see is dirt, rocks, sand...and more dirt,
rocks and  sand...it's 80 degrees here and no green to be seen!" So I
mailed him some  dirt in a zip-lock baggy, some wheat (cat grass) seeds
and a shallow dish  so he could grow something green in his tent. I'm
sure he'll laugh about  that...but hey...it's GREEN!
