DF called today!!
Fri, 04-11-2003 - 9:08pm
Hi ladies! I got a phone call today from DF at about noon-- first phone call since March 8! It was so wonderful to talk to him, but the connection was bad so it was kind of fragmented. He still doesn't have any idea when he's coming home and I still don't know where he is, but he's safe (so he says) and is only flying every 3 days or so, which is probably making him angry, but makes me feel a little relieved.

I had asked a couple days ago (I don't get here often, a lot of you probably have no idea who I am) about care package ideas. I love the idea of the cooling bandana thing, that would be so welcome there I bet. Jim wrote a letter that I got this week and he said it had "cooled" down to 78 or something like that...

Just wanted to tell about my lucky phone call-- hoping all of you will get them soon or have gotten them recently too... it sure helps to talk to him.

I'll check in later-- I work a ton so I'll probably be here only a few times a week. But I like to lurk too.... :)

It is great to hear you got a call. Bet it made your day. I know the calls make my day. Not that they come as often as I want but enough to know he is okay. Just wanted to say it was great you got good news.

That's great, hon! You must have been so happy to hear from him - and to get a letter, too! You are a lucky girl!

Good luck with your care package ideas. The ideas I've heard being tossed around are: lip balm, underwear, sunscreen and those sort of "needs".

Hope you're doing well! Hugs, Jill
