There are a lot of stray cats here, and dogs for that matter. The other day a few of us was in the gym. We were doing shoulder press and little kitten sprinted by us. Ballard started laughing so hard that he almost dropped the weights on himself. Don’t really know why it was so funny, I guess you just don’t usually see kittens hauling ass though the gym very often. Only in Iraq!
For some reason we no longer have fuel inside the FOB. They have decided (who I don’t know) to keep the fuel on the outside. The other day we were in a hurry to go out on our mission and were not allowed to leave because there was a car bomb that was sitting next to the fuel point. They had found it sitting there and did a controlled detonation. The fuel is surrounded by concrete walls so everything was okay but I just thought it would be a better idea to keep the fuel on the inside.
