Soldier's Life: The Bright Side

Sun Jan 11, 2004 1:25 am

Usually, I don't want to trade places with soldiers but I guess this one enjoys a nice moment.
I just liked the picture, so I thought I should share it.

Just another hat a soldier wears today, btw.

What's so nice with being humped by a bear? I wouldn't want to switch places with him.

The fact that it's a young bear and wants to play!

Yeah, but so would be the other soldiers... alas probably resulting in an orphan bear.

Somehow I think the young bear is already an orphan, because
a) the soldiers wouldn't even think of getting close to the bear while his parents are around.
b) The bear's name is 'Trouble'.
c) The soldiers don't visit the zoo. They are there to protect the animals from humans (not the other way around).
