Okay, that one was closer...

Yesterday after work I stopped in at the club to shoot some pool. The Ugandans were there, and it's always a good time playing against them.

About five minutes into the first game there was a tremendous explosion outside. KA-WRUMMMP!!! The club is an old converted stone building, so I am sure we were safe, but it shook so much that crap was falling from the ceiling. Like those First World War movies where everyone is in the bunker when a German shell lands near by and all this dirt and dust falls down. I didn't even really think stone shook before yesterday, but it seemed as if the whole building swayed. Or maybe it was just us.

It turns out a rather large rocket landed in the parking lot between the club and G-Row, which is where my hooch is. And I was just thinking the other day how it had actually been a while since we had taken any rocket or mortar hits on the FOB.

We brushed off the table and continued shooting pool.

At the very least the pool game was just interrupted and not ended... Good thing you weren't outside when the thing hit- divine providence at work again.

Yes, I am sure it was divine providence.
