Hi! Sorry it’s been so long. We were traveling, first to St. Augustine, Florida then Ottawa, Ontario. If you tried to guess which one I like better you might be surprised. Ottawa is pretty and has lots of great restaurants, but the city counsel has worked very hard to keep the city sanitized and free of character. They’ve forced out most of the good stuff: vintage/consignment clothing stores, sex shops, junk/antique stores, bodegas, used book stores, LGBT book stores, and artists who do anything but clean, pretty, mild, interior decoration art. As one Ottawan I spoke to put it, (the owner of this frickin’ amazing vintage shop) “It’s a city without a heart.” St. Augustine was awesome, though! Plenty of weird crap to keep me happy and the weather stayed mercifully cloudy and cool the whole time we were there.
“I am a southern Baptist by faith and serving in the military. I believe that if anyone no matter what faith they are wants to practice then they should with freedon be able to practice that faith. It states in the first ammendment that we have freedom of religion. I am proud to be able to serve in the same military with someone that practices what we all fight for. With that being said i believe that everyone should not hold their ignorance upon someone that has the stones to openly practice a faith. Same for someone who is Gay and wants to serve their country. If anyone has any objections to that i tell them to go to Arlington Cemetery and tell the thousands of men there that they cant”
I love you (especially you David in Georgia). Please be good to each other.
