My Saga In Pictures (9th of Av)

Waiting for the bus, I notice two heavily uniformed Israeli soldiers..with slippers on their feet because it is forbidden to wear leather shoes on Tisha B'av.


Walking on Har Hazeitim.... searching for that elusive plot



Safety at the choshen:

Notice the shomer standin on the balcony lookin down at the freakin arabs. In the second temunah you can see my roof and the dream bed i found in the corner about an hour before the fast was over.



ahh the sun setting in yerushalayim...the fast is almost over!

I just hope that the guys in the slippers don't have to do chasing anybody.

I guess worse comes to worse they'll just chase the guy barefoot, we're talking about Israelis after all.

Oh sabra, I walked up the Mt. of Olives on the same path just a few weeks ago - I wish I was there to see it now-

You are making me homesick for Israel!

Why do you love Israel? Not Why do you love Israel, but like why do you love Israel, and why do you love Israel.

Nemo: (August, September... February... ye, you're definitely gonna see this!) Worse came to worse. It began there in fact. What would be bad is if it came to worst! That would be terrible!

Avi said...

Oh, and Sabra, if you'd be so kind as to answer me, either by directing me to a post that describes your feeling (obsession?), or by writing one or by telling me to take a long walk off a short pier - plz not C - please do me the added favor of letting me know.

the sabra said...

Avi said...

Yup. Thanks. (I don't remember it but I remember appreciating it.)
