Third Time's a Charm

State-side, safe and sound!
  [vote for,

My third deployment (second combat deployment holding the (in)glorious title of "Halfbaker"), has come to an end.

I am state-side, safe and sound, and looking forward to resuming my activities as an ornery and cantankerous bastard on the HB.

If there was any orrery-like HB obsessions that have come and gone in my absence, or any other happenstances a bourgeois baker such as myself should be aware of, please fill me in...

       Out of the combat zone and back at the HB ready for some real abuse eh?   

       Welcome back brother.

       Welcome home - bake away...
normzone, Sep 10 2012

       You didn't waste my luck vibes then.
Good man.

       Unabubba also came back and left again.
rcarty, Sep 10 2012

       YAY! Welcome home.
blissmiss, Sep 10 2012

       Glad you're back safely.
MechE, Sep 10 2012

       Welcome home. I suspect that both countries are now slightly less safe than they were.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 10 2012

       [remulac3 M.D.], [norm], [blissy], [Mech], [SLEEP] thank you, thank you, thank you!!!   

       Thanks so much, guys! I'm so happy to be back too. Mrs. MikeD is pretty excited, as well. Whoa, [rcarty], Unabubba's gone again???   

       [2 fries], your good luck vibes were recieved, packaged and saved for when I really needed them..... and I really needed them!   

       [MB], an astute assesment. I must agree.   

       Man, oh man. It's good to be back.
MikeD, Sep 11 2012

       seconding MB's sentiment -- welcome back, MikeD!

       It's great to hear that you're home safe, [MikeD]. Is your son's tour up yet?
Alterother, Sep 11 2012

       Good to hear you're home fella. Hang up yer boots and take a load off...

       Welcome back to the USA (though I clearly don't live there, but am a frequent visitor)

       Funny, [xen]. With my deployment schedule I could say the same thing!!!   

       If there are any cigar smokers out there, might I reccomend the Padron 1926. The tastiest celebratory cigar I've ever had.   

       [21], I see your annotation... but where is your fish bone???   

       Man, oh man I missed you guys!!!   

       And yes, I am in one piece.... physically AND mentally. I had a great tour, in fact I can proudly say everyone in my unit made it back outside of a coffin.
MikeD, Sep 11 2012

       Can you not make postings when 'out there'? Obviously not duhhhhh....
xenzag, Sep 11 2012

       //Man, oh man I missed you guys!!! //   

       Dear gods, what have they put you through out there??
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 11 2012

       //And yes, I am in one piece.... physically AND mentally// Well, then, you're not really fit for the HB, are you? Half of us are half-crazy and the rest are half sane!   

       Welcome back, nonetheless!
Canuck, Sep 11 2012

       welcome back!

       <Voice of Alex DeLarge>   

       I've suffered the tortures of the damned, sir. The tortures of the damned.   


       I had intermitten internet access, [xen]. T'was the spare time to use it, I lacked.   

       [21], on my way back through KAF, I found the AirForce MWR. The high-speed Wi-Fi rivaled state-side bandwidth! Given the opportunity to do it all over again, I'd still retain my manhood and join the Army.
