I drove home today from a client in the north and on the way saw something – several times. And as I did, I thought – wow, this is Israel. And then I thought of the blog and starting figuring out how to write about it. And the people who would write and say – don’t tell them troop movements and be careful. So…here goes.
I was driving on a road going in…one direction…and opposite me, saw…some number of tanks being carried in the opposite direction. A minute later, I drove past a tank being carried in my direction. To that was x number of tanks going
And then I thought of all you military types who read the blog who would write and give me all the reasons why – yeah, maintenance, training, I don’t know. Then I tried to remember what I had seen – were they tanks or artillery. I don’t know – which made me think I hadn’t been listening to Elie enough and how Elie is going to give me a lecture later today when I tell him. I think they were tanks. I’ll let you know (but not how I know the difference).
Then, as I drove on, I saw a bunch more huge military vehicles traveling in
I’ve lived in Israel for 18 years and I’m still in love with the little things that remind me where I live – the signs in Hebrew, the camels and sheep and goats in the open fields near the highways; the Arabs riding the donkeys and the donkey carts; and yes, the tanks.
May God bless my beautiful country every day till the end of time.
