Waffles Wednesday With My VETeran


Um, hi everybuddy. Waffles Too here.

This is my brother Gabe.  He's a VET-eran. But not the kind that you have to get in a PTU to see and who gives you shots and stuff. He's a US Marine VET-eran. He just came home after four whole years of wearing short hair and camouflage while he helped take care of our country.

Gabe just started college too. He's pretty smart already so I don't really understand why he needs to get more smart.

I think hanging out with me is WAY more fun.



And so does Gabe.


Real men really DO love cats.
