Mr. Keillor, You're going to
May 8, 2006 |
You're going to love Iceland. I spent 2 winters in Keflavik during my time in the U.S. Navy, enjoyed every dark, windy, wet, freezing, snowblind minute. Very reminiscent of my childhood in Cadillac, Michigan. I hope while you're there you make mention of all the Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen and Marines serving up there. It's a harsh environment, but they've made it "home".
I won't be there for the freezing snowblind part, Jim. I hear it's warming up. Though of course wet and dark and windy are still possible. As for the soldiers, perhaps I'll have Guy Noir visit them to find out exactly how they manage to make the place home-like.
