Well, I'm going to Qatar next weeks for a little r&r. I'll be there about a week. I'm not sure what all i'll be able to do, but it should be fun. I'll get to swim in the Persian Gulf, that will be worth the trip. Just thought I would tell you all about my good fortunes. In case anyone was wondering, Qatar is right beside Saudi Arabia.

Hey, that's great, Peenk! You deserve the R&R after Iraq, I'm sure. I was thinking about you yesterday...I popped in my DVD of Blackhawk Down and watched it.

Say, there's a scene in there where they talk about what they call Mogadishu ("The Mog"). What do you "in country" guys call Iraq? Do you have a standard nickname for it?

Just curious...enjoy Qatar. Don't chase any Qatari women...they're male relatives will probably cut your b@%%s off!!!

Peek, its great to hear you getting some well deserved down time!! How much longer are you going to be in Iraq? And how to you get to Qatar? they do not make oyu jump out of a plane or anything do they???

" Well Peek, here we are at 40,000 ft above Qatar, take this parachute and enjoy the country!"

@ Mike, well, I guess we all have a shorter name for Iraq...and we call it shit. I guess that would be about the only other word most people would use for this place.

@ CD, I'll fly to Qatar, but I'm not sure on what type of bird, route, etc. I've got some more pics up at my blog.
