News from Ben

Self portrait...
I guess it was easier than walking over to his companion and asking...
"Can you take a picture of me?"
This is a picture of Ben in his NEW Easter tie... notice the color!!!
This is a picture of their pet cockroach Gregory! EWWWW!!!
I guess that it was inevitable that one day Benjamin would reunite with the cockroaches...
While living in Knob Knoster, Missouri (While Russ was activated during Desert Storm) we lived in a trailer in the mouth of the Black Hills Forest (I'm not lying... I couldn't make that name up!). One of the fellow guardsmen told me of when her husband had a cockroach CLIMB INTO HIS EAR while he was sleeping and had to have it surgically removed!!!! Needless to say... I didn't sleep very well while in Missouri! I would have nightmares of one getting into Ben's ear! So all I can say is this... Ben, Sleep with ear muffs on!!! I will sleep better!
He has just transfered and hopefully there are NO cockroaches where he is at now! I KEEP TELLING MYSELF THIS!!!

That makes me sick just thinking about it! I might have to sleep with earmuffs on tonight.

Hey, What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Right??? Hopefully it doesn't make us deaf too. That is so so gross!!!

He looks so much like a missionary all of a sudden. Use ear plugs...they are a little less conspicuous!!!!
