Out of the Blue

Yesterday Hudson the wonder dog and the Gunnar-man got to meet Bandit, the Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy that recently moved in down the block. Luckily he got on Hudson's good side right off - she can be a bit testy about other dogs, but seems to like boys better than girls and puppies better than grown-ups, so he had a couple of marks in his favor. Meanwhile, Gunnar has a new good friend… they ended up running around together and had the time of their lives. A little later in the day Bandit was being walked by our yard again, and he literally dragged his owner over to see his new buddy. Looks like we have to start arranging play dates.

I vote we outsource our military.


Ahahhaaa....it's already been done in some capacities. Some functions that were traditionally functions of the active military are now handled by civilian contractors, especially the areas of reconstruction and advisory of a government whom the US/allies are propping up. Intelligence gathering also tends to be outsourced sometimes and even some private soldiers are utilized.

Hell, the way warfare is conducted has changed since I went in and was discharged.
