Wow, what a recent couple of days.
Thursday evening I hung out with Lindy, Ann-Marie, Tracey, and Jeni at the Mill Pond. Jeni and I found sticks and pretended they were swords. Then we started wrestling. I had a good time, and right now I can’t remember what I did later that night.
Friday, the fourth of July, came and for the first half of the day I waited around for Vince, so he and I and Allen could do something. But he went out to eat with Laura and never came back. So, I just left with Tracey and Jeni. We went to the Tweetsie Railroad parking lot just to see what was going on, then we went to The Farm House to see Derek and Dawn, and then we ended up at the dollar theater and watched Sling Blade. Wow, a great film!
Saturday morning began with me trying to get a five foot snake out of one of my residents’ bed. That is a story in and of itself, but we finally got it out.
Also, Vince confronted Laura about their physical issues. She ran away from him on Saturday. Then she returned and brought him a box full of everything he ever gave her. Charlie came over and Vince, Allen, Charlie and myself had a big talk about relationships. Vince and Laura got things worked out, but Charlie and Kate…oh boy!
After we talked for a while on Saturday, we went to Johnson City, TN and walked around the mall. We ate pizza, saw Men in Black, a completely stupid movie, and Charlie stopped to look at engagement rings. It was weird. They’ve broken up, but he’s looking at engagement rings. That stage of my life seems so far away from me right now.
Charlie is a mess, but Kate seems to love her newly found freedom away from him.
Sunday (today) was Homecoming Sunday. Our new pastor was there. His name is Brent. Jim was also there. There was a lot of food, so I ate a good lunch.
A girl, a visitor, caught my eye and we smiled at each other; so delightful when a new face comes along.
A lot of guys from the church made plans to play tennis that afternoon, and we did, but then Charlie came by with a hitchhiker and asked me to go with the two of them to Lenoir.
There is a very detailed story that I must explain, but I’ll do that in the morning hopefully.
Dan is back. He looks like Jesus with his long hair and beard. We’ve had so much fun already. He’s staying with me.
More to tell, but I’m so sleepy.
