Dead Quiet!

Man, its hard to come up with something to write about. The weather has been just about perfect for the past several days, today the high temperature was 84 under a bright sunny sky. The neighborhood is way too peaceful, as most everyone, including my buddy Brady, is off having fun at one of the area lakes. We've been enlisted to protect the area from ruffians and make sure that everyone's garbage cans get out to the street tomorrow night for our early Monday morning pick-up. Yes, ours is an important job, and we are faithfully out on the porch each evening fulfilling our duties!

This being Saturday night, that means that tomorrow morning is church. The subject of my sermon is my feet. I have amazing feet! They are most likely the ugliest feet on the planet, and perhaps many other planets. What's more, since my feet are soooo big, that makes this even that much bigger of an issue. The subject of tomorrow's message is the Gospel lesson, from Luke chapter 10, about Mary and Martha. If you want to know how I get from there to my ugly feet you will just have to show up! We get started at 9:30am.

Beth blew through for about a 24 hour visit. Actually it was 22 hours, 51 minutes and 16 seconds. She spent the past week in Yakima, better known as "Crack-ima", helping out at a church vacation Bible school. I picked her up, along with her friend Kristin at 8 on Friday evening, and we left to return to Camp Lutherhaven just before 7 this evening. Unlike the last time that Beth brought a friend home from camp there were no bouts of appendicitis, or emergency appendectomies. Everyone managed to remain reasonably healthy!

Tomorrow after church we are going to be applying aggregate sealer to our back patio, sidewalks and front porch. It basically amounts to paying 100 bucks for a 5 gallon bucket of goo the consistency of Karo Syrup, pouring it out on these over expensive concrete slabs, and rubbing it in with a paint roller. The end result is that makes the sidewalk and porch look like its wet. That all lasts for about 2 and a half weeks, before the sun burns it all up and you have to do the whole thing over again. It should be a very nice day to apply aggregate sealer, as it will be sunny and about 85 degrees. In fact, we are looking at a whole week of nice days to apply aggregate sealer. The forecast all the way through next weekend calls for sunny days with highs in the 80s.
