Gone native

Here’s LRN1 getting into the Guatemalan jungle thing just a tiny bit too much.  You can tell he’s a missionary by the nametag.  Great Art courtesy of an unknown missionary and part of my famous Guatemala series.

Greetings from home!  I didn’t write on the train this afternoon.  Too busy sleeping.  And I already feel like I could use another nap.  Sigh.

But it was a nice holiday weekend – especially Monday.  I spent Friday working on LDS Tools, as planned.  Got a couple of things done but, alas, not all that much.  I’m frustratingly not feeling successful there.  Don’t know how to put in enough time to make it successful.  Don’t know what to do about that.

Anyway.  Saturday was fine.  Can’t remember anything that happened except that we went to our friend Evan’s fiftieth birthday party.  Saw several friends there, watched a little college football (it was his party and he could watch sports if he wanted to), and had a bit of nice food.

Sunday was normal.  Church was fine, there was no choir practice, and we got to chat with LRN2, which we look forward to greatly every week.

Monday, we got up and went golfing with our friends Doug and Connie.  Had a nice time, although I stunk up the course big time.  We got home just in time to go to the ward picnic, which was also very nice.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, the park was beautiful, and we got to chat with several friends.  Couldn’t have been better.  Next, we went home and spent a couple of hours in our pool.  Again, the weather couldn’t have been better for it and the water felt great.  We got out just in time to go for a quick bite at our favorite Mexican fast food place, after which we went for dessert to our friends Don and Lynn’s house, where we talked about our upcoming mutual Hawaii cruise.  What a great day!

Then, to pay for my fun, I spent the day today going to meetings.  Period.  Looking forward to more of the same tomorrow.

I’m not a meeting hater.  I think they’re a great tool to get people together and get things discussed, understood, and decided.  But you can have too much of a good thing, sometimes.

Anyway.  Listened to an interesting interview with Mark and Caralyn Buehner, who are a hus-a-band-and-a-wife-a-team of children’s book author and illustrator.  I’ve seen one of their books before – a long time ago – called The Escape of Marvin the Ape.  I somehow got it as an interactive book .  Probably came with a computer a long time ago.  Anyway, it was cute, and their newer stuff looks even cuter.  Very good interview here and their website is here.  I’ve recommended their stuff to LRN4, whose website is here, just in case I haven’t remembered to mention it before.

Time to quit.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this combination shocking food violence news and exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: turkey intruder!

See you tomorrow.

    I guess I’d rather have a turkey intruder than a human one, but my first choice would be no intruder at all! Love the picture–he looks like one of the howler monkeys he said he could hear there.
