To the Trenches, Boys!


We had quite the storm yesterday.  Snowed for over 24 hours straight.  When it was over, we went out and immediately started building defensive fortifications.

This takes me back – to working the snow trenches north of Vladivostock in the Kamchatka Peninsula during the 2008 Husky Scottie War.  Saw many a young Scottie going home maimed, crippled, and even worse after taken fire from the Godless Siberian Huskies in that carnage.  In fact, I took a head wound myself from a Husky….but now that I think about it, it might not have been in Siberia but instead at my local dog park.  Memory ain’t so good anymore…I am nearly 14 years old, y’know.


Anyway, Sun is back out, so will be lots of enemies on the prowl today.  Make sure you wear your Scottie Issue Polymer Based Attack Repellent Cranium Cover  (PBARCC – or a helmet to you civilians) – and for Dog’s Sake, keep your head down!  Even though you are below ground level, notice my head is down, while stoopid Private Ainsley, who ain’t even wearing a PBARCC, has her ears exposed.  Rookie Mistake.

That’s it – back to sentry duty. And remember the words of that great philosopher King, Keanu Reeves: Pain Heals, Chicks Dig Scars, and Glory Lasts Forever.

HOOYAH!  Sgt. Angus Fala
