Nice weather this week, huh?

Just in case you are getting too comfortable on your nice Oklahoma patio during our nice spring evening in beautiful Oklahoma in early June, here’s a little dose of Afghan reality.

It’s on the “On the Line” blog on NewsOK.com – powered by Mike and Carlos Boettcher, who are embedded with soldiers in Afghanistan.

I guess my day wasn’t so tough, after all.
