You know I don't ask for anything, except this year. This year (or next year) please send quicksilver1 home from Kuwait in one piece. Please let him have both his arms, both his legs, all his fingers and toes and all the rest of him when he walks through my door next year. Please let this tour of duty be easier and shorter than the last one. I'm going to have his favorite sandwiches waiting in our fridge. Please send him home whole and at peace and with a ready appetite.
