Our friends work for the State Department and were assigned to Guinea. GUINEA. (That's Africa).

We wanted to make sure their farewell party was appropriately themed, so we had monkeys,

In the absence of real blow dart guns, we had to make do with pvc pipes and marshmallows.

We'll miss the Hayes - but they're going to have some great stories!

TJ really likes sports and building things and guns and spicey food and punching stuff and explosions and action movies and steaks. Stuff like that.

something tj's college roomates will appreciate

This weekend I was complaining that I didn't understand why my efforts at decorating in the bedroom just weren't looking right. TJ responded in a slightly exasperated voice,

Silly me.
