Last night, we finished our celebration of Marcia’s birthday (which was back on the 15th) with a viewing of the latest Bond flick: Skyfall. Good movie, excellent action, good pacing, and while it’s a tad predictable, it almost has to be with a franchise as venerable as Bond. The rest of the weekend was pretty full, too: woodworking, company party, shopping, washing of cars … a long list.

33 days – that’s our interval since the prior casualty announcement from DoD. Wow! Still, today we got word that Staff Sgt. Jonathan D. Davis, 34, of Kayenta, Arizona, had died Feb. 22 while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. I’d been hoping to keep up the streak of not having any casualties to mourn… Our condolences to the Staff Sergeant’s family, friends, and unit mates. Semper Fi.
