The Wiz

Making his B36 debut, The Wiz hails from Germany where he was previously jailed in a Kinder chocolate egg. Luckily for him, I was able to free him from his chocolatey prison and restore him to his previous splendor. The Wiz now accompanys ... accompanies... goes with me when I travel and keeps me company.

(The Wiz takes up an observation position to provide security while I nap)

(The Wiz inspects combat damage on a wall)

(Always a dangereous fellow, The Wiz throws caution to the wind and crosses into a restricted area)

Unfortunately The Wiz didn't make it into these pictures, but I though they were good enough to be put up anyway.

(suburban Baghdad on an average day. Strange, no craters, smoke, or tanks in the streets... what could that possibly mean?)

I believe The Wiz should have his own video. "The Wiz in Baghdad side by side with America's troops." What a theme that could be.

I can see it now. Special operation by troops on the ground, air force and Centcom.

You can do it Bandit!

What I meant by "Special Operations" being the one that rescued him. That would be the first episode. Other episodes would have him in action with you guys.

Sort of like the Roaming Gnome, only a Wiz.

The Wiz is incredibly tough. No headgear! No body armor!No fear! Bandit, Your efforts in both service and blogging are much appreciated. Always looking forward to your words of WIZdom. Riding With Respect

I like that idea about The Wiz in your videos. Maybe make him a guest reporter that does on-scene segments. I bet he's not afraid to go to places your CNN/ABC/ETC reporters are afraid to go in a kevlar bus. *Ben Stiller voice* Do it. Do it.

Hey all,

I had forgotten all about kinder eggs.

That's the best chocolate on the face of the earth!

I would spend hours playing with the toys with the neighborhood kids.

Go Wiz!!!!
That's cool.......

Like the quiet photos of Baghdad too. What does it mean???

Stay safe and hope the baby is doing well...

(Sorry for the loss of your friend.)

Thank you for the update momma. I still say the "Wiz" carries a close reasemblance to the Travelocity Gnome. So does that mean he is in deep cover at Travelocity looking for bad guys and good intel. Maybe he'll find Osama. Osama doesn't stand a chance against the :Wiz" and the Gnome!

Be safe B36. You too momma!

Wiz rocks. I cannot express the fond and fuzzy memories i have of kinder eggs. let's just say that they become amazing the later it is at night and other factors are involved, like friends...;) The Wiz is awesome.
