Clover My former neighbors who are now in Iraq helping the reconstruction efforts write about their St. Patrick’s day celebration in the IZ, aka “The Compound”.

Chris and Susan used to live a few doors down and my dog Twiggy was a huge fan of their dog Nelson. In fact, Nelson still comes by every now and then to visit, which turns Twiggy into a little excited doggy groupie.

My neighbors are working with USAID and the Army Corps of Engineers, hopefully helping to make some small good come out of a terrible situation.

Susan finishes the post with a funny St. Paddy’s day joke.

Chris and Susan, good luck and here’s a joke right back atcha.
