Broken Camera

Our camera decided that it didn’t want to work anymore. Therefore until we can either get it fixed or find a way to get a new one there will be very few pictures. We may be able to post pictures that others take but no more of our own :( I guess all you get now are thoughts. Hmm… No thought at the moment a baseball game is on, thoughts to come later.

Birthday in Nigeria

Suzanne was a little bummed that she was going to have to spend her birthday here in Nigeria and not get a party. So I got our new friends to surprise her with a cake and a nice meal. Amy cooked this beautiful dinner and we had quite a nice time.

More pool party pictures

Imagine sitting by the pool listening to some Robert Earl Keen, and getting to know some new people. It makes you not feel quite so far from home.

Pool Party!

This weekend Christine and Moody put together a pool party at our apartment. The weather turned out beautiful and we had a lovely afternoon and evening by the pool.

Back in Nigeria

Everything has been really hectic the past couple of weeks. I have been on R&R and I needed to come back to Nigeria to get a break from my R&R. We packed up our house to rent it out while we are not there, and that alone consumed most of my break. Also my wife came back with me this time so we also had to pack for an extended period in another county. Getting internet hooked up in the apartment has been a challenge. I had a laptop connect card while I was here and it worked fine, but when we got here with her laptop the card did not fit in the slot. So we had to find other means of getting connected and it has been slow going. Our shipment from the US still has not arrived either, so she doesn’t have any of her stuff to decorate the apartment. I had quite a challenge adjusting when I arrived, but I thought that it wouldn’t be as much of a challenge for her because I would be here to help. However, that has not been the case, and all of the same challenges that I had before we seem to be having together now. Eventually things will settle down and get back to normal (at least as normal as one can get here) When we get the internet hooked up at the home I’ll probably pass off the blog to her and let her run with it.
