I was really bored this weekend so I took my cute little snorlax to the park and he went down the slide :D
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
No idea where we are, but look at this pretty lake :D
(I wonder how long it’ll be before this posts…. Barely even had a phone signal for hours….)
The train finally arrived at 1am last night. I think Rufus has been up for a while, but I just woke up.
The view on the way out of San Francisco was beautiful
(Too bad I couldn’t get a good picture of both Rufus and the city lights)
