Crazy Things Going on

Hey friends, hope everyone is doing well and having a good week.  I wish I could say the same, this has been a pretty difficult and trying week for me and unfortunately I think it will only get worse for a while before it starts to get any better.

For those that don’t know, I’m a soldier deployed in Afghanistan, and to say the least, things are not going well right now.  The whole Qur’an burning incident took place about a mile from where I write this to you.  All  the angry protests you’re seeing at that base on the news?  It’s literally right down the street from me, less than a quarter mile away. 

I’m doing alright, but things have been pretty stressful and strenuous as of late.  All the local workers have either not shown up for work or quit altogether so a lot of the services here on base have been shut down, this includes the bathroom facilities and showers since the local workers aren’t here to add more.  Also, all the local bazzars and shops are closed down, the dining facilities are barely operational, this place seems like it has done a complete 180 almost overnight. 

Today will be my time off for the week (I’ll be working 6 hours instead of the usual 12-14) so it will be a good time to work on some more writing, update my blog for you guys and catch up on some much needed sleep.  Right now though, it’s time to get ready for work and hopefully find out that nothing even crazier happened today while I was sleeping.  Hope everyone enjoys their day.

To give you an idea of how close the riots are to me, I’m including a picture I snapped outside of my room of a blackhawk helicopter circling the group of protesters.  Hopefully I can send some more pictures of me out here soon although have to be careful with security concerns and all.  Anyways, hope everybody has a great day and I’ll be back soon.

A Special Gift From Dana Specht and Sarah Gregory

It’s not often that you meet someone and instantly become very close to that person in a way it makes you feel like that you’ve known them for your whole life.  However, this is exactly what it feels like to me when I had the pleasure of talking to Dana Specht and her naughty, but awesome, daughter Sarah Gregory.

Right before I started this blog, I decided to email some of the big names in spanking to just introduce myself and wonder if they would be interested in adding another spanking blog to their links.  One of the first people I emailed was Dana Specht, someone who I always looked up to and was inspired by her great content over the years, she’s also known on some websites as “The Queen of Discipline”.  I sent her a nervous introductory email and honestly didn’t think I would get much back.  The next day I found out that not only did she reply but she thought it was extremely awesome that I was a soldier and still trying to participate in the spanking community.  That really made me feel good so we kept up a dialogue for a few weeks and needless to say we hit it off pretty well and became pretty good friends.

When Dana’s daughter Sarah Gregory came to visit her this past week I actually had a chance to email with Sarah few times as well.  I’ve always been a huge fan of hers, and I remember seeing her on the site “Punished Brats” back in 2006 thinking that she was going to be someone very special in the community if she kept this up.  Several years later, and Sarah is perhaps one of the most talented and hardest working spanking stars and models out there.  Not only making appearances on some of the biggest spanking sites, but also running her own site “Sarah Gregory Spanking” which I think is quickly becoming one of the best sites out there for high quality spanking content.

So today, I received an email from my Aunt Dana (she even accepted me as her little nephew, so sweet!) that was titled “For Our Favorite Soldier” I smiled as I opened up the email and was amazed to see pictures of Dana and Sarah posing next to a “Support Our Troops” sign which appears to be in Dana’s back yard.  I thought it was extremely special and made me smile big and feel good today.  It was a good thing too because with everything going on lately here in The Stan, I’ve been stressed out to the max, and haven’t been able to smile much.

I thought I would share these pictures with you all and tell you how thankful I am to have support back home from wonderful people such as Dana and Sarah.  Been truly blessed to be able to know them and thank you again ladies for making a soldier smile today! :)
