5 things

O.K. My lovely wife Carole did a thing on her blog about 25 random things. Well I was thinking about that and thought I would do one, but everyone is doing that. So I thought of something.

It's 5 thing I don't want to here from my 12 year old daughter until she's 24 and married

5 Dad I'm done with school

4 Dad I'm moving out

3 Dad I need pads

2 Dad that boy is smokin hot (unless he is on fire)

and this is the most important thing of all

1 Dad I'm pregnant

Africa


the cook (forgot her name) Carole, Johnny, Abel and me at the quest house
1 dollar a day would feed a family. O.K. when I would see those commercials on T.V. about Ethiopia. I thought that was a load of crap. There's no-way you could do that. those people in that commercial are trying to rip us off and take my money. Then I went there to pick up our 6 year old son that we adopted and was I wrong. Not only will that feed a family that also will buy you a bag of the best coffee in the world(and I hate coffee but I drank it there), a can of Coca-Cola, a pack of gum (from the street kids), and still have some change left over.
When I was there we stayed at a Guest House (like a Bed and Breakfast here) and I talked to the night desk worker a lot. His name was Johnny and he had just graduated from University with a degree in business. Very smart and nice man. We talked about his country and my country. He asked if there were poor people in America and was shocked when I told him yes. He thought all Americans were rich. I asked him what a construction worker makes and he told me around 800 bir a month ($80). There was a lot of construction work going on in the city. He also said that it was hard to find a good job there and that why he was working at the Guest House. (I think he was a Angle from God sent there for us.) He helped us out so much by telling us what the kids were saying,took us to a shop to get a back-pack when mine broke and would not let us carry anything no matter how hard I tried to get it from him. I gave him my Steeler's hat that I brought with us and he would not stop saying thank you every time I would see him he would have it on.
I have so much more to say but words would do it no Justise
Thanks for all your prayer

Mr Rolfe's (Daddy Rolfe/Pastor )



Tara, Rolfe’s secretary sent this to Dan so I stole it.

The way Rolfe is explaining the broken arm to the folks at the business report. thought y’all’d enjoy it:
Top 10 Explanations for the Broken Arm:


10. Chronic Blackberry overuse weakened the bones, and when the flight reached altitude of 35,000 feet it spontaneously fractured.

9. Snapped during a safari tour by a local Swazilander who kept hitting him in the arm in the exact same spot repeatedly and asking ‘Huh? Tigaz! Huh? Lions! Huh? Rhinocerous! Huh?’


8. Attacked by a crocodile after getting too close and taunting, “Tiger bait! Tiger bait!”

7. It was crushed when cargo shifted on the plane – apparently he stacked too many boxes of “Our Way” leaflets to distribute to villagers.


6. Tussled with local activists after suggesting he could do a better job running their
believeInSwaziland.org web site.

5. Let’s just say the McCollister driving style is not as effective when weaving through hundreds of pedestrians and hippos.


4. Tried to take his signature ‘Moon Walk’ to another level by walking on his hands.


3. Broke it after he triggered a brawl when he offered local tribal chiefton an ill-advised food offering of his mom’s homemade “
White Trash."

2. It’s not actually broken—it’s merely a so-called “Mule cast” to conceal contraband.


And the number 1 explanation:


Tara, astounded he somehow managed to get his Blackberry to work from the jungle, hired a Swazi warrior hit man to “please, for the love of all that is good, break his Blackberry hand.”

Pretty Boy

O.K. When I saw who was going on this trip I thought "oh great a bunch of teenagers that we are gonna have to watch this whole trip". Boy was I wrong about that. We had no problems at all with anybody.Think about this there were 30 people ages 15 to Rolf (LOL-Don't know how old Rolf is). And there were no fights, no getting on any buddies nerves. Now if that's not God I don't now what is.


This is Rolf..

All the teenagers were great for teenagers. they never complained about anything they were told to do. They loved on some baby's and were just great.

Now one of the teenage boy stood out to me more then the others and that was Paul (The pretty boy) Musso. He was on my team for the basketball camps.



First let me tell you why I gave him the nickname. It was the 2nd day of camps and we were going to have tea with the Principal and Teachers of the school. I was the last one to go up and some of the kids asked me to sign their wrist bands that we gave out. So as I was signing one girl looked at me and said "can you give this to Paul (handing me her wrist ban) and have him sign it for me?" so I took it and then she said "oh and have him kiss it". So like any grown 35 year old man would do I gave it back to her and said "I will go get him for you". Then I went inside and told everyone. Paul went out and the girls (by this time there were more of them) went CRAZY (like the old video of the Beatles) They chased him around screaming. Even the kids at the care points looked at him different. We also heard some of the girls at the school walking back to there class saying that Paul had shook there hands and they were not going to wash them.



Some of the kids from the school.

Paul in blue in the middle of the group.

He's not only pretty but he's a great kid. I'm glad he was on my team and I got to know him better.

Swaziland reminds me of Ohio, the landscape and the weather.

More Later.
