hmmm?

It's been a couple days now. I thought by now I would have a story or something to say, but I don't.

So I'll throw in a picture for you all to enjoy today.

This picture was taken back in 1904. Technology has really come a long way since then.

TJ, since you don't have a story today, I thought I would tell one. One summer I was working up at camp, IRBC, in Clear Lake, but I don't know why they call it that because it's not really clear and I don't think it ever has been. Maybe it's after "The Clear" performance enhancing drug, because if you rubbed some of that water on yourself, it would probably give you bulging muscles, like on Big Jim's back when he takes off his shirt at the swimming hole. And I don't recommend swimming in this lake, because it has lots of goose feces in it. But it is a great lake for boating, and other recreational water sports such as jet ski-ing. Actually, Jet skis are quite fun, no?
This summer Mark and Jeremy and TJ came to help me run some games at Senior High camp, which was awesome, because the whole rest of the summer the games I made up were totally "happy", but that week, with the help of those guys, it was great and everyone loved the games. As a reward, we were allowed to ride the jet ski's but I don't think TJ had his swimming suit or something, because he had to ride with me, and since I had been riding jet skis all summer I was like Spiderman on those things. Or Batman maybe, because we were zooming all over the place and I took a turn a bit too tightly and TJ goes flying off the back and of course, he was wearing his glasses at the time and they went straight to the bottom of the lake. At least that's what we assume, because we were never able to find them, and the principles of water displacement would dictate that something heavier than water would sink in water, except for aircraft carriers, which are made of concrete and metal but they still float, I think because they keep the planes flying around inside them all to compensate. Also, the University of Wisconsin has won the National Concrete Canoe competition 5 years running now, thanks to superior engineering.

So the rest of the week, TJ didn't have any glasses. Thankfully, it was already Friday morning so it was only one day, but that night he had to run the sound and he had been squinting all day so he had a huge headache and looked like a talk slender chinese man. He couldn't see the stage from way back there and he kept squinting and leaning forward. I felt really badly, and I still do.

Louis, as you can see by the picture TJ never did get glasses again. As we are a poor family we were never able to buy him new ones. As you can imagine he lives in constant pain due to the fact that he has to squint all the time. I wish we could have gotten him new glasses but he had to sacrifice as we needed to have the important things in life like a TV, a surrond sound system for the TV, 4 cars, and of course Mountain Dew. We have had to put up with his constant bad moods since that day because of you!! I think you should become a missionary and go off to some far away country.. like maybe South Africa.. I think that would teach you a good lesson. Don't ask me what that lesson would be but I'm sure it would teach you something!! Oh by the way.... I had a good day at work thanks for asking!!

I heard missionaries in South Africa tend to be Canadian-type hosers. I know its true about the ones I've met. I think the question we all need to ask is...

"DO THEY HAVE THE BIBLE IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE!!!"

Bob, if you had been there to get my million dollar sale you could have bought TJ new glasses.

We don't want Louie coming over and infecting our childen with the ludicrious ways of the O'Tool Cult

But Brian, you never answered my question.

DO THE NATIVES HAVE THE BIBLE IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE?
