Day 121: Legs

I took this picture while I was walking. No, those fuzzy things aren't mine. They belong to Vince, but mine do look pretty similar... What?! It's difficult to shave in those dark, tiny, planked showers! ;-)

Day 120: ICU

Our hospital here at Bagram has the most medical support and services in Afghanistan. We treat Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, Seamen, Reservists, Guardsman, Contractors, Afghanis, and even troops from foreign countries that are also apart of NATO and ISAF.

Day 119: Through the Table

I don't know why I took a picture of my boots through the table, but I did...

Oh, man! That was a sour pickle!!!

Day 116: Cool Guy

Yep, he's cooler than I am, but that's okay. I can live with it!

Day 115: FedEx

I couldn't get a good shot since this nutty truck was wedged in between some fancy schmancy limited edition SUVs that apparently were shipped via FedEx. They make me wonder who bought them and with who's money...

Day 114: No Smoking Sign

As I've mentioned before, I just like signs. They're especially interesting here.

Day 112: Potty Instructions

This poster was on the outside of the porta-potty infront of the Korean hospital. I can't stop laughing!

Day 108: I (heart) Chelsea

My cousin Chelsea is the sweetest girl I know! Look what I received in the mail... She got together with Bee and Bee's daughter to make a couple cards for me. They even sent some extra craft goodies so I could make some my self. I love you, Chelsea!!!

Day 107: Vespa

I've been saying that I want a Vespa for quite some time. This scooter isn't exactly a Vespa, but it just recharged my draw.

Day 106: Round Rock

Just because.

Day 105: Gas Station

This isn't your usual gas station.

Day 104: Air Force vs. Army

They live here... ...and if you'll recall... I live HERE.

Day 103: Ketchup

It almost looks normal, doesn't it?

Day 102: Hot Guy

He may be hot, but he seriously lacks in the personality department.

Day 101: Forklift Towing

We don't have tow trucks, but we do have forklifts!

Day 100: Behind the Wire

Well, I've been behind this wire for 100 days now. It's gone pretty quickly!

Day 99: PX

The PX (post exchange) is great back home. It's like a cheaper Walmart with name brand stuff, and we don't pay taxes on post either. The little shopettes here are dinky, but it's all we have. They sell some unusual stuff. Can you see anything unexpected on these shelves?

Day 98: Laundry Bags & Rockets

The laundry system here super sucks! It takes about a week to get my stuff back, so I'm always out of something. Grr! P.S. A rocket just landed not 75 yards from me! Freaky!!!

Day 97: Bunkers

These things are everywhere. I'm a tad jealous that the Airforce bunkers have benches and water bottles though. Those guys are so spoiled. ;-)

Day 96: DFac

They painted the inside of our dining facility (aka "D-fac") to look like a tropical scene. It really doesn't make me feel like I'm on vacation at all when I'm wearing ACUs, eating mystery meat, and have a rifle strapped to me.

Day 95: Malaria Pills

Doxycycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic that we take daily to prevent malaria. You must take it with a full glass of water and remain upright for about half an hour or ELSE! I've taken it a couple times just before bed and then spent the following day dry heaving. We also cannot donate blood for three years after taking this drug. It also can cause liver damage if taken over a long period of time (like a deployment!?), and increases sensitivity to light. It causes permanent yellowing of teeth and a whole list of other nutty things. On the plus side... it treats prostatitis, sinusitis, syphilis, chlamydia, pelvic inflammatory disease, acne, rosacea, escherichia coli, enterobacter aerogenes, lyme disease, folliculitis, shigella species, acinetobacter species, respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, streptococcus pneumoniae, and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections! LOL! (I really don't believe the acne one though, because I hadn't had a zit in ages until I started taking these barf tablets.)

Day 94: Guns

You can buy guns here, but the postal service won't allow you to ship them. So, why even sell them? I don't get it!

Day 93: Just Me

Day 92: Ugly Dolls

Oh, I forgot to show you the ugly dolls...

Day 91: Owl Love

I forgot about this little guy from the bazaar. I love him so much. I'm definitely going to make him mine next time.
