One for my homies

Yesterday afternoon I was sent to take pictures at the Veteran’s cemetery for a memorial day ad. While I was there I noticed cans of beer and soda set next to several different gravemarkers in lieu of flowers. I counted 7 cans of Budweiser, 2 cans of Bud Light, 2 cans of Miller, and a can of strawberry Shasta.
I’ll bet the strawberry Shasta guy was a cool dude in his day.
Guam is so small, and I’m not talking about square miles. How can you tell if you live in a VERY small community? When you happen to be wandering around a cemetery that you’ve never been to before and you notice a name on a gravemarker and say to yourself, “Hey, I know him!” On Guam you’re always running in to someone you know when you’re at the grocery store or post office, and apparently now at the cemetery.

    Tell me about it. I went to school with the guy and still have one of his drawings.
