So I’ve come to realize that updating each night this week would prove fruitless for the following reasons: one, all we really do is eat, and two, I’m on vacation.
I’ll post if something interesting and out of the ordinary happens, but what follows is an average day: breakfast, recreation, session, recreation, lunch, recreation, session, recreation, bed.
The recreation bits can include, but are not limited to, sleeping, writing, Game Boy, ping pong, pool, carpet ball, air hockey, foosball, board games, basketball, mini golf, and visiting the beach. So far we’ve had drizzle and rain, meaning I’ve stayed away from the beach. I don’t own a pair of sports shoes, so basketball is probably out.
I did sign up for the ping pong tournament tomorrow at two o’clock, after practicing a fair bit and destroying the morale of my opponents. It’s fun, but my only real competition is my dad, brother, and Caleb Predmore.
Oh yes, the Predmore clan came to Oregon as well and we’ve spent most of our meals with them, as well the recreation time. I took a photo of Daniel with his piece of pumpkin cheesecake (which he offered to throw in my face). Vacation is great so far, and I plan on getting some good naps in during the week. The sessions have been good as well.
One of the two speakers, Bob Vernon, was a cop for the LAPD for many years and he’s got amazing stories he relates to biblical truths. The fact that he talks, sounds, and even resembles Robert Culp as FBI agent Bill Maxwell has endeared him greatly to me.
As usual, my mom is trying to hook me up with any reasonably attractive young woman she sees. I’ve already decided who I want to try talking to and will endeavor to do so if/when the opportunity arises. More as it develops. Or doesn’t, as the case may be. We’ll see.
