Update from Fort Hunter, Liggett, California

You are not going to believe this.....my son, Cpl. Joseph Fonseca, who thankfully is on US soil, in sunny California, which one would think would be safer than Afganistan, until the earthquakes start!!!!... So this guy loves nothing better than torturing me. He calls me to tell me that he's been SNAKE BIT. Now anyone who knows me knows that rubber snakes freak me out. I got bit by a snake when I was 9 years old, an I have a HEALTHY respect for them and a murderous regard! Gregory made me go see 'Snakes on a Plane' and I had nightmares for a week.....so I ask him what kind of snake and he says 'rattler'. Are you kidding me? Seems he was out on guard and felt something wrap around his leg. He throw a light on it and saw it was a snake and shook it off. As it hit the ground it strikes back at and hit him right at the top of his boot. One fang hit the boot and the other glances off his shin. So for his trouble, he got a TET booster and an anti venom shot and a 12 hour stay in the infirmary for observation. For those of you who follow my darling boys' exploits, add this one to the list...with the eye, the magnets in the nose, locking themselves in the bathroom in the middle of the night, getting a finger stuck in a keyhole...hahahahaha!!....I feel like Rosanna Rosannadanna...."It's always SOMETHUNG!" so
when I see him...what do you think? He's got the snakes head in a baggie in his pocket and he HAS to show me! Speaking of Joey.....I have spent a lot of time just looking at him.....he gives me the 'OH MA!' because I tear up when I look at him. But have you ever looked at someone and didn't recognize them?......Yea, I have a hundred reasons to start to cry for Joey but the reason I do is that I can't find the little boy in him any more. He is a man, with eyes that grieve for lost companions and have seen things that I will never see, not in all my many years...hehehehe! but there is a set to his jaw line, there is a purpose in his step, there is no thread of that child left whom I remember. I love him, I will always, but I miss that imp. I hope that he is still there somewhere and when the situation allows he will re emerge....laughing....

This is bad....

I am so happy.....right this second...I refuse to even think about it past this second...ok past today. I am so afraid though....everytime I get my hopes up, everytime I let my heart feel something...I'm running out of the strength to deal with hurt. I'm not joking. So....do or don't I?

Sitting.... thinking a thought.

I have been writing papers every week for 5 weeks....officially this class blows! But the bitch of it...I have learned so much...:) Researching what I want my thesis to be in each case. So I don't like it, but it is what I am doing, and the end justifies the means. So why write my drivel, because something is stuck in my craw! I am nothing, if not predictable. I was sitting, first, thinking how many people say the f-word, immediately upon the conclusion of filling their gas tank. I stopped to get gas on my way home and I heard it 4 times in the lot, ok, once by me!
Well, then I start thinking about what a bill of goods the voting, taxpaying American public has been fed over the years. I know I am always getting a ration of shit about remembering my past, but I do not live in the past. I remember my past, I remember what about it was good and what about it sucked. Why doesn't this country? I remember people who supported me and most definitely the ones who didn't.
Does anyone remember the Alaskan pipeline? When our country convinced us that the construction of this pipeline would decrease our dependence on foreign oil and keep the supply and demand in check. Can ANYONE tell me where this failed? Is It still working? lol
I can only imagine that even Thomas Jefferson, the Republican gentleman from Virginia, is doing loopdy loos in his coffin.
Jefferson’s quote, "I hope we shall crush ... in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country" is often attributed to being a strong warning against corporations and their function in American government and society.
Hello Oil cartel. Some three hundred years later, I have come to view this man as a visionary of epic proportions. I have felt that this country is like a runaway train on a collision course with something. Any one else feeling the same way? We can only hope that this election yields something that gets America back on it path. Ok, I'm finished yapping.....
