Well, it looks like I will be heading back to the U.S. Embassy in Kabul next week. My health issues have been resolved and the DR’s say I am cleared to return to work. Well, work is where I left it and at 63 I am not high everyones list. Here I am superintendent and tools, electrical tools, rarely touch my hands. My wood working tools are still there waiting for me so I will set up a “new” bench and be back in business soon. I have 4 USPS flat rate boxes full and ship them off today. Look for a tower crane soon to add to my “construction” series.
