I've lived in El Paso as well—Fort Bliss, Texas.

Darren said...

Me, too. The US Army Air Defense Artillery School--known in some circles by its acronym USAADASCH (yoo-sad-ash).

Oh wow. Neat :D Is that a part of Biggs Army Airbase or Fort Bliss or White Sands?

Also lived in Bavaria. Nice place :D

Darren said...

I think Biggs falls under the jurisdiction of Ft. Bliss, but I'm not sure.

And who doesn't like Bavaria?

BTW, how did you stumble upon my blog? Having read yours and checking out your pictures, you don't strike me as my stereotypical reader. Not that I'm not always happy to have a new reader, mind you!

Galaxy Quest!!! Oh gosh, I could catch that movie a hundred times and never stop laughing. Whenever one of our cats does a scan of the ceiling my hubby and I always look at each other and say, "Looking for shoes." And of course, only fans of Galaxy Quest get it!

Maybe your cat has found a way to penetrate the Moktar Stealth Haze.
