I know, that's not the name of the song! The last day I was at home I had quite a bit on my mind. I think it finally hit me since I was having to leave my poor doggie behind about the reality of my future. It put me into that spiraling thought process about my future. I try not to do that too often, it only makes your brain feel all mucky. I was just glad to be able to look back on my trip and to be really happy that my time with my parents went so well, even if it did go by way too quickly. A sad sappy country song to sign off for the evening:


Two days past eighteen
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth café there
Gave his order to the girl with a bow in her hair
he's a little shy so she gave him a smile
And he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talkin' to me I'm feelin' a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I'll bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I've got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?

CHORUS:
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
When the letter says a soldier's coming home

So the letters came
From an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's gettin kinda rough over here
I think that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for awhile

CHORUS

One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For the list of local Vietnam deaths
Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was the piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and no body really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

This is such a good selfie! Dont dwell too much on that which you cannot control. Just live in the moment, take things as they come. :)

I know it sucks to leave your pup behind. I know I would hate to have to leave mine behind to live overseas. Keep busy, though, and the time will go by faster than you think.
