Quote of the Day: “People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.”

- Anton Chekhov

A few weeks ago, I sent a package to a good friend who is serving in Afghanistan. I had written about the coffee I was sending her here.

I also had sent her other Seattle standards like Applets and Cottlets (the gelatinous nastiness that you either love or hate … I hate them), a CD of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Sir-Mix-A lot, a Seattle mug, a book, and some assorted candy.

Today, I got the sheet you see at the top of this post in the mail.

What a great gesture that they would think of me and send me this. I was touched that she would take the trouble to get the signatures and send it to me, seeing how she is, like, you know, in a war and stuff.

Tragically, I found out that one of these pilots who signed this was killed shortly after she sent me this picture. War’s a bitch and it was rather creepy when I found out that he had died in combat.

Fair winds and following seas, Warrior.
