Vacation time and books, books, books,

031026630001_ss500_sclzzzzzzz_v65765812_Yep, I’m just about ready to take off for about 10 days with my “honey” to Glacier NP. Besides the hiking, relaxing, paddling around in our I.K. (that’s cool abbreviation for Inflatable Kayak), I’m also taking several books. I’m dialing in on Mike Frost’s book, Exiles, first…I loved the Shaping of things to Come. In fact, I picked up a documentary on Burning Man just to be able to get a sample of the vibe he discusses in the opening chapter. Then, I’m into Shane’s book big time…of course, it is a bit hard to read some of it…in fact, most of it. But I’m two chapters in and hooked. I’ve got a few other “reads” along for the road including (for those of you who think I’ve gone off the deep end) my bible. My buddy Mike Erre should feel better about me already. But before you think I’m some sort of reading “snob” or purist, I’ve brought along some fun books too including Hiaasen’s book, Skinny Dip. Carl Hiaasen is just a “demon” of a player with words. Yeah, there is some language to navigate…but his story lines are a blast. The last book I read of his was on Bass fishing. For those of you who know me, that seems like the last book in the world I would read…but it is a murder mystery…Double Whammy was about a murder that happened to cover up cheating at bass tournaments as well as a crooked preacher who was scamming people out of money…ooooo, the fun of it. So, we’re off. We’ll be playing for about 10 days and then be back. After a long time talking about it (about 10 seconds), Vicky convinced me that I should leave my computer at home. It took me a long time to agree with her (about 5 seconds)…so, I’m off line for a bit. I’ll be praying for everyone of you who drop in on my blog. Come back and see me sometime!

  1. Hey. Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
    I am from Botswana and know bad English, please tell me right I wrote the following sentence: “Rather than using I statements, begin each sentence with an action word to describe your experience.”

    Best regards ;-), Abia.
