The watch

Keith,

Remember when we went back & forth to the same store in New Haven a couple of times because I bought a watch and then we went back to get one for your birthday? I am wearing that watch in Baghdad in the picture on the blog. It reminds me of you and Kraig and Dad and of the whole trip. I have it on right now. It says 8:54 pm.

How’d Joe’s first day at school go?

Your brother,

Mark

I remember being flabergasted that Keith didn't buy the damn watch the first time we were at the store.

I remember gushing about how great it was and boy oh boy would I like to have a watch like that and then leaving for home Depot and Mark offering to buy me a birthday present there for the same price the watch would have been back at the other store... Really though, had we bought it the first time would we be writing about it now? That was a great trip, all of us together like that.

I just wanna know if I am gonna be included on the plaque this time. You may recall that my efforts in regard to the back porch project were somehow overlooked.

Your efforts are duly recorded on the underside of the countertops and on the wall behind the stove (now covered with tile). I wanted a plaque, but dad said you had your heart set on signing the work where it would never be seen.
