Sara from Iraq....

Sara on SKYPE in Iraq. Skype is about the coolest program, its free and if you have a camera on you computer you can see them too! Sara will probably want to kill me for posting this picture LOL ( Hi Sara!)You can take a snapshot while you are talking on Skype. The internet over there is on and off so we usually have to call each other back several times, after the internet kicks us off. But it is so cool to be able to see her and talk to her when she is so far away!
These are Coke and Pepsi cans from Iraq, really wierd looking with the Arabic writing on one side and English on the other. The Coke can is also really tall and thin, and they are pull tabs! Remember the old ring pull tabs?
Pepsi in Arabic.
This is milk in Arabic, or as Sara was saying "What passes for milk" LOL the ingrediants were something like, water, powderd milk solids, etc. sounded like reconstituted powdered milk. They come in little juice box like containers. The caveat is that it does not have to be refrigerated, yeah. Sara said she was craving real milk, LOL. 
Sara's orders were changed  and she isnt getting to come home now until the middle to end of March,
darn it! 


  1. Skype is great for soldiers overseas. I'll say a prayer that she remains safe.

  2. It's got to be really disappointing not having control over her schedule. You must breathe a sigh of relief when she does return. I'm like that just from when my teenagers go out for a drive.

  3. Darn it! But at least you get to benefit from modern technology and actually speak to her and see her pretty face and not have to wait weeks for a letter to travel across the sea back and forth to keep in touch.

    My twinlings use Skype to talk with their grandfather who lives in North Carolina. They can talk and play video games via Skype for hours. hehe!

    I hope your daughter can come home in March so she can enjoy a nice cold glass of milk and some homemade cookies. :)


  4. But most importantly - ask her where the Dr Pepper is!
    Seriously, it's so great you get to visit this way.
    Thanks to Sara and everyone else who does so much for us in Iraq (and everywhere else).
