Bryan’s first day was today and he settled in quite nicely. We got a few ads done and the day was very productive.
I went to Redkey to tan, and I tanned for 12 minutes. I got a little burned.
@ 6:00 we went to visit Bob & Vera. They are an older couple from church. They are just the happiest people to be around in my eyes. Vera cooked up a big batch of vegetable soup and 2 pumpkin pies (one of which she let me take home).
The food was excellent, but the company was even greater. It was the first time we had sit around a kitchen table in a long while. After dinner we listened to the story of how they came to purchase the house they were in and the story of Bob’s mother who had it built.
Dunkirk Indiana had always been primarily a very blue collar working society. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s they found a giant gas pocket under east central Indiana. Dunkirk was the crown of this gas well, hence the nickname Crown City.
Dunkirk has been known for ages as a place of heavy drinkers and pool halls and such. Well Mrs. Farling decided she was going to build a recreation center for children, and she did; without help from the city council. Her idea was to portray God in her home and center. She was strongly against her home turning into a tavern (which is located near two).
So Bob even years after his mother had passed, found the house up for sale, and snatched it up, before anybody else could purchase it. Since those days that house has been renovated a few times. In it’s history it had been 2 churches and 1 kids center, but now it just makes a nice place for Bob and Vera to rest their heads.
We went home right at 8:00 so we could catch Survivor. It was another bland week of Survivor. I am getting tired of watching Foa Foa lose! However; they are keeping their spirits high somehow.
Grey’s Anatomy was also very lame. The whole episode revolved around Dr. Shepherd doing some miraculous surgery. Then when the drama had peaked and the suspense had us, they cut to commercial. Then on the return the suspense was over as the patient was in a bed and moving his toes. That was the first seen! I was like… What!!! Are you kidding me! Who writes this crap?
There wasn’t some miraculous parapalegic that understands he is going to be paralyzed then his toe twitches. He’s just perfect as ever! /sigh
Private Practice was boring as well.
