I know it isn't spelled correctly, I spelled it the way Gomer Pyle always said it on the Andy Griffith Show and on Gomer Pyle USMC. Why?, you ask. Because I just got the best Serprize of all, Trevor just called me from MCRD- Marine Corp Recruit Depot (where Gomer Pyle was actually filmed and Trevor is training).
At first I was a bit nervous about why he might be calling me. When Donovan was there, he called the first day and then the next time I heard from him was after leave when he called to tell me he was injured. But it was actually a good call this time. I guess the platoons are allowed to call home before they head north for their 4 week training at Camp Pendelton, but Trevor's platoon got short-changed and so they let them call today when they are back at MCRD.
It sounded so good to hear his voice, but I was taken aback when I heard that first tenative "Mom?" I miss him soooooo much. 22 days until I see him again. School is going to have to do without me for a week, because it would take more than wild horses to keep me from going to pick him up.
