A soldier walks into a library....

No, this isn't a joke, although it made me laugh.

SoldierMan began the clearing process today, and part of that means going to the library to get "cleared" as not having any borrowed books or late fees or any of that. (Neither one of us ever even went into the post library. I don't even know where it is!) And he goes up to the desk and says who he is and that he needs to clear to PCS.

And the lady working there says, "Are you from Oklahoma?"

He says, "Yes."

She says, "I follow your wife's blog!"

Do you have any idea how much that made my day? :)

So, lovely library lady, please leave me a comment so I know who you are and can find your blog. I'd love to stop by and say hi!

And thanks to all of you for following, especially after my long hiatus. You all really do make my day every day!


  1. Oh, that's so sweet! And cool that you got recognized!

  2. How funny! My coworker has a friend I've never met who follows my blog. I love it!

  3. Ah, that is so awesome!

    Are/Were you at Benning? If so, I would love to hear what you thought about it and everything. We PCS there next summer.

  4. Bahahahaha!! That is SO great! Though, I bet it was a tad awkward for SoldierMan. =P

    You gotta love the blogosphere!

  5. haha that's so great! that would make me day too.

  6. How awesome!! You totally have a following!

  7. My most favorite thing about reading this post is that it means you really are back in blog land. :) I'm glad you're back!

    And cheers to us both for finishing and meeting our goals! HOORAY!

  8. how neat! i wish something like this would happen to me.

  9. it is such a good feeling when you meet someone that reads or finds out because you never know who is out there LOL. That is pretty cool .

    Love that you term him "soldierman" LOL

  10. Holy crap that is so cool!!! You know I remember reading a Milblog not too long ago and the girl was a librarian.. but I can't for the life of me remember who/where. Hope you find her! :)

  11. Hey there! This is the library lady from Benning. I recognized SoldierMan right when he walked in from your pictures. I hope I didn't embarrass him too much! I meant to get to this earlier, but I got behind with the holidays. I wish you guys the best of luck in Texas. Maybe we'll run across each other again somewhere in this milworld.
