Would you be frightened if you saw this on the way into the ER at your local Hospital? I would and quite frankly I was. But our armed escort helped with that.
I don't know if the ambulance in the foreground works but the one behind it is burned out literally.
This morning while running I saw one and couldn't get my camera in time so I missed it.
When I first got here there were several on the road dead and I did not take a pic.
So I'm walking back to the rooms from the ER, I was following our anesthetist who if it was a snake would most assuredly have bitten him, but walked past it without noticing him. As soon as he passed I noticed it and freaked out.
They have alluded me too long and I finally got a good video. The pics didn't turn out but after we scooped him up we threw him outside. Makes me wonder where he came from and how long he was there. Although he was coming from the surgeons room!

These are some of the student nurses sitting around waiting for the sky to fall. The entire hospital has open air halls to the court yard. You would have to go into the ward, OB unit, OR, etc to seek shelter if it rained real heavy. There is no AC and power was faulty at best.
This is the entrance to the ER an armed guard sits there with a sign in front of him that says leave your guns here. The sign here in the corner says "Load or Unload you Weapons Here". I guess it all depends on what you want to do when you go inside as to whether you load or unload?
This would be really great if you could actually see the Moon and the Bats. On the left of the tree right by the branch that looks like a ledge you might be able to see the moon. The bats are evident in the light. But can you beat this sun set? It is one of the best with the moon I have ever seen. To bad I wasn't able to share it with my Honey. I will though when I get back. Hope you enjoy and I hope you don't get sea sick as I meander around tracing the bats.
If you have been following my blog about packages to send here is one thing I thought of CHIPS! Any kind of chips we have some cheese dip and some salsa but nothing to put in them.

Well, this is the way the morning went and early afternoon. It never got sunny just cloudy all day. I was able to get some movies in and lounged around.
Monday I'll start my work out and get some awful before pictures so you can make fun.
Enjoy the video it is footage of right outside the back of the Hospital.
Oh, by the way, did I tell you about flying over the volcano that blew by Clark AFB in the PI years ago? This is it! The whole right side is gone. Surprisingly the vegetation has grown back quickly, it doesn't look like there was an eruption other than the side of the mountain is gone.

You can't tell but these are some wild Turkeys on the camp. They go wherever they want. They are the typical turkeys too, they will ruffle their feathers and attack passers-by. This is the jogging road that is not easy to run on because of the large rocks.
For all you military folks this is base housing. Consider yourselves lucky to have what you do. There is no doors windows or facilities with running water. There is our Doc running on the road his first day, you can see how humid it is in the pic.
This is a papia (not sure of the spelling) tree I did not know how they grew it is pretty neat. One of the officers from the Phil AF took one down and cut it up for me, of course they teased me about the side affects that it has. I won't have to worry about that here.

This is the day room and the big screen, it was great for watching Wolverine!
Out side the front entrance to the ER is this huge tree. It is so big I want to climb it, but I was told it is bad luck for some reason. I took some pics of the coral and shells on the ground.
