Best view, most mediocre meal.

Answer your phone! It's not a question but I would like to entertain you for a while

I wish I could have, I went through a massive fucking dead zone.

Dinner with @amtrak this evening. (at Elijah Bristow State Park)

I wanna hear about how you found Freya and the first day you brought her home.

I got Freya through a guy I served with, but not directly through him, but a friend that he had served with in the Marine Corps…  Back in the summer of 2011, Texas was basically on fire.  I remember at one point I could look out on my balcony and see smoke from wildfires basically surrounding my apartment.  Bastrop, Texas got devastated by the fires, and Bastrop just so happened to be where this friend of a friend lived.  

The friend of a friend was running some kind of puppy rescue at his house, which is mega awesome, however Bastrop caught on fire, taking much of his land, his home, and many of his animals.  He told me that when he was forced to evacuate, that he had no time to do anything for his animals, and that there were simply too many to take with him.  He opened all doors in the house, dumped out every bag of dog food, and every piece of human food that he could on the floors, and filled every sink, toilet, and bathtub in his house with water, leaving the dogs at least something to eat and drink, should the house survive the fire.

I guess Freya got picked up by Animal Control and was taken to a make-shift animal rescue center in a Walmart parking lot.  Her picture was posted, a nameless, frightened pup and posted to the internet.  He saw that she had been picked up with a few others.  I agreed to take her.


Freya on day 1

When I picked Freya up, she was completely covered in soot and ash, had cuts and bruises all over, and was absolutely terrified of everything.  On the ride back to my house, she hid under the drivers seat of my Jeep and almost refused to get out upon arriving at home.  I had a cat at the time (which I also took pity upon, as it lived with these fucking idiots and was subjected to being force-fed ecstasy, and having pot smoke blown in his face), who was a complete asshole and constantly pissed and shit on everything that he could hover his stupid cat ass on.  He didn’t like me, and I didn’t care much for him.  Anyway, this fucking cat clawed the shit out of me and Freya as soon we walked into the apartment.  Then trying to calm the cat down, while Freya cowered, the little bastard shit on me.  In that instance, I made a decision, Freya is adorable and damaged, needs my love and attention, this cat is an ungrateful piece of shit and could go be an asshole anywhere else.  Freya had a new home, the cat also had a new home.  Everyone won.

Anyway, Freya was a mess for a long while.  She almost instantly attached herself to me though, and couldn’t be without me for long.  She grew on me very quickly, and aside from having issues with potty-training as she had been an outdoor dog before coming to me, she was perfect.  She and Julia are the center of my entire universe.  I love my pup.

Here, have a mess of pictures of me and my babe.

Adios, Portland. (at Steel Bridge)

Man oh man.  Such a good time in Portland.  Catching up with @ariwithsocks, a friend of almost 10 years now.  Been through so much in our individual paths in life.  I’m glad that we’ve both found our own peace and happiness.
Meeting his wife @urbanlotusnl (who made those picture) and pup Ziggy was great.  Family is very important, and I’m so glad that he has found such an incredible support structure.
Cheers, bro.  Here’s to 100 more years of friendship and brotherhood.
