I left for the Schwengle's this afternoon about 3 and stayed til about 9 or a bit after. Everyone had a great time, I getting to know the whole family, and them talking to me about various things. I've come to the realization that even though many people here are Volunteers fans, deep down they are friendly people, so I'm glad we had friendly conversation about the rivalry between the two schools. We had burgers and fixins, and strawberry pie for dessert. I took some of it home, and I know they still had lots left. We spent most of the time talking, and that was really neat. It's nice to have a place that I could spend the day, because it's hard being here by myself sometimes. I pulled out my little handheld ham radio and one of the little grandkids, Christopher, who is eighteen months, had a great time holding up the radio up and talking into it like he knew what he was doing. He especially enjoyed pressing buttons on it. I think I made a friend today in thechnology, and maybe some day this little bit of inspiration might convince him and his dad to get their licenses. We taught him how to say radio which is the first step, and I also asked him if he was going to get his license some day and he said "yeah!!!!" which is the second step. We have to work on things little by little I think.
I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do at work tomorrow, as when I talked to Hop today, he told me to check with Joel in the morning as to what he wanted me to do. Might be kind of a slow day, but I don't know that for sure. I've continued reading my book, so I'll bring that with me in case I have some dead time. I also have a letter to write, which will take some time, because it has to be done right :), all good letters should be pondered and planned so that they're not like email messages in which you dash out really quickly. So I think I'll get to bed before midnight tonight, and hope that everything works out for me to get picked up in the morning; Glen's not going to be there tomorrow. More soon.
