31 Oct -- Happy Halloween!

We had a great time Trick or Treating on base tonight.

 We started at one of our friend's house on base.

 Our Squadron Commander all dressed up!

 Jane was so excited every time she got candy.

 The first piece of Halloween is opened!

The loot!  Jane wants to watch the candy as she eats it.

29 Oct - Adult Halloween Party

Winds in the east, mist coming in, 
Like somethin' is brewin' and bout to begin.
Can't put me finger on what lies in store,
But I fear what's to happen all happened before.

On Saturday we went to a friend's Halloween Party in Wittlich.  It was a great time.  Everybody's costumes looked great!

My date arrived as usual.


 Man they nailed the faces!

Strike up the music!

10 Oct -- Last full day in Germany

We had a great visit with my parents.  They left on 11 Oct on a Air Force C-17 flying from Ramstein to Andrews Air Force Base in DC, then caught a bus from Andrews Air Force Base to BWI, flew Jet Blue to Boston, then took a bus to Portsmouth, then finally back home!  What an adventure!

All together now!

9 Oct -- Manderscheid Castle, Germany

I took my parents to Manderscheid Castle.  It was a great time.  We parked in the town and then hiked through the woods to get to the two castles.  It was a beautiful fall day.



 You just got to love the foliage.

 Jane doesn't need to be in this picture...

 Ice cream anyone?

 We surprised Dad with an early birthday cake.

 Now let's show some excitement for the cake!

7 Oct -- Luxembourg American Cemetery in Luxembourg

In the afternoon we went to the Luxembourg American Cemetery.  There are 5,076 American soldiers buried here, many from the Battle of the Bulge.

What a nice mug!

4 Oct -- A-10 Sim, Spangdahlem AB, Germany

We went to the A-10 simulator and "flew" around Germany.  We saw our house in Dudeldorf and flew up and down the Mosel river.  Best of all, mom didn't throw up!

2-11 Oct -- Dan's Parents Visit Germany!

Dan's parents visited us from October 2-11.  It was great having them visit and the kids loved it, too.
