I talked to Jimmy's mother this week. James Hayward Arnal loved this country more than any of you quiche-eating, latte-loving, armchair quarterbacks.
Yeah, chuck, tell that to Cpl Rob Sargeant, stationed at a secret base located somewhere in southwest Asia:
There's a surreal feeling I get here - where with a well-equipped kitchen and gym we are able to keep fed and healthy in a barren desert climate. Some of the dishes the cooks are able to come up with are amazing - not just your typical meat and two veggies, they do everything from chicken swarma to quiche.
Or tell it to the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion Association:
Bloomfield is a small town with many interesting boutiques, galleries, antique shops, and tea rooms. We had an enjoyable couple of hours browsing the shops, then it was to Angeline’s restaurant for lunch. Angeline’s is in an historical house lovingly refurbished to its original beauty by owner and Chef Willi Fida. Our lunch was Quiche Lorraine and salad; for desert the most delicious fresh apple strudel I have ever tasted, followed by tea or coffee. Taking a different route we arrived back at the Base about 1430.
You calling the 1st Battalion a bunch of girls, chuck? A pale puffball like yourself?
