On my way to the park, I saw an MRAP. What is an MRAP you ask? This:
Today was my first time ever seeing one in person, and not in the Army Times or in photos. Let me tell you, those things look like monsters seeing them on the road. They are an armored vehicle that the Army (and probably other branches) use. They are pretty good on doing what they're made to do.
When I got to the park, let Stryker out of the car, and was playing ball with him when five blackhawk helicopters flew over. I have to say that living on post never gets old. Seeing something like blackhawks or jets in formation flying overhead, or Strykers and MRAPs driving down the road. It's amazing. You don't experience that every day as a civilian.
I have to say, I love our armed forces! They're amazing :)
On another note, when I was out doing some shopping I drove back to my parents house, passing this park. I saw this little white thing some girl was walking on a leash. I thought, wow, isn't that a small dog? I don't know if I'd walk that dog on a leash, I'd be afraid something would swoop out of the sky and try and pick it up. What breed is that? And then I saw it: it was a ferret. A FERRET! What?!? Pretty funny. I won't be forgetting that one.
Also I want to add that I'm going to have a small announcement coming soon. No, I'm not pregnant. I need to do a couple more things before I make this announcement, so give me a couple of days and I will tell you!
It was a GOOD day today. That feels good to say!
GOODBYE February, and BRING IT ON March!
