Fun times.

Made that coffee taste fan-freaking-tastic, though.
damn man you were in Bosnia during the genocide? I was a kid back then but I remember watching the news; amazing that the whole thing happened in the middle of the so called modern civilized Europe and was ended only because a US president decided to deflect attention from his own impeachment.

People in it and my dad was one of them. My brother and I went back and gave him a proper burial. The stuff that went on people can’t imagine. Even now when I think about it, it just seem like a bad nightmare but seems the older I get the worse it starts to affect you especially now that I have a daughter and a family of my own and I have to explain to her how she only has one grandfather. My family was still one of the lucky ones to be able to escape not everyone was like that.

Yessir. It was quite rough. I was there in a capacity to help - can't imagine what it was like to have been born and raised there.

Most people in the western world today just don't understand and are too quick to forget.

I agree. It was a bad time, especially considering that we had “peace keepers” but they could not engage or anything so it was pretty pointless. I know most people hated them because people are getting slaughtered but no one could do anything. Even today the country is going to shit since we have basically 3 countries all trying to pull in their own direction.

Agreed. In my defense, I was in the military at the time, but was seconded out and was working for the U.S. Government in a different capacity related to intelligence collections. As such, I didn't have to abide by the U.N. Charters.

Having said that, however, there was much we should have been able to do as a country (the USA) and yet were ham-stringed by the United Nations.

Had to stop at the post office today on way to work. Gotta love rural life. 500 square feet, 1 employee wearing a T-shirt with Deadpool riding a pink unicorn on it. Open 8:00-12:30, M-F.

Dude. Evictions are no fun. Had to do 2 last year for my parents.

Nothing like a drive to improve the mood and a little on-road hooliganism is the perfect remedy for the doldrums. I'm about to have a quarantini, myself. Cheers!!
