I haven't had a chance to check in lately.
The new job has had me busy.
The boy has been at Ft. Jackson for a few weeks now also. He should be in week 3 of basic. I spoke to him yesterday (sunday) for a few minutes. For the first time that I have ever known him, he actually spoke up and talked. He didn't mumble, he was crisp, and answered questions instead of ignoring me.
I know that this happens all the time, lord knows I saw it enough, but the boy came to me when he was 8 and I've never been able to reach the kid.
He told me he was doing well, but was questioning his decision to join after the first week. He has since come around and will be alright. I also took from the conversation, that his picky eating habits are going away.
I guess I'm going to one of the few Army posts that I have never been to this May. In all my years, never had a reason to go to Ft. Jackson. Been to about every other out of the way place the Army owns, but not Jackson.
Any way, I'll get back later. I have a mail route that I walk about 12 miles everyday and it's whipping my tail.
