This is my favorite thing in the war with fried cafisj and hardtack and it's every Sunday night diner after getting too relax all day and not do drill so you can atuctaly savor. i enjoy tis aslo becuage i awalys had this at home with my duater kori, and olivia once a week. i can't wait four Lucas my first baby boy that my wife just had. this week has been amazing and i remember my haversack to take some fried pcatfisj.

i see what you ar…
