I know I know I haven't blogged in... let's see over a week. The computers where I was staying got taken away for maintenence and I got home about four days ago and just plain haven't had time. I got to fly on a plane for the first time by myself. I sat next to a grandfather and his grandson who were playing cribbage and fighting over how many points each of them forgot to count in their own hand. It was really funny. I am home now safe and sound. I didn't know that the nearest airport to where I live is so big. If I hadn't had someone help me around I would have gotten lost. Yesterday a very special friend came to stay with me for a while. Her name is J.J. (Jo-anne Jane) and she is from Florida. She is not sure how long she is going to stay here. Today she took me out for ice cream at Cold Stone. Man is their ice cream filling. It was awsome. I had cheesecake delight with cheesecake ice cream strawberries and blueberries. Well I am really tired but all of you that read this should read The Poinson Wood Bible by: Barbara Kingsolver. It is a great book about the Congo and a minister trying to prosalide there.
