Surfing with Jackson

Got up, got to Wrightsville around 11:00, surfed most of that time until 4:00.  Because the Wahine Contest was being held in my surf spot there was very little area to surf in and that little area was crowded.  Mike and Kaitlyn Bosclajon were out there for a while, but Lars got frustrated.  Mike Ashcraft was out there too.  His daughter, Madison, was in the Wahine Contest.  Michael came a bit later. Talked to Andra and I thought Amanda and I were going to get Jackson tonight, but we didn’t.  Like taking away Christmas.  I was going to teach him to surf, have s’mores, buy him a comic book.  Met a different Jackson out surfing though, this eight year old …

Xbox 360 Controller Cord

Barry got me a copy of the Vampire Weekend CD and I was listening to it today.  It’s really good.  The songs that stand out the most to me are Oxford Comma and M79.  M79 I really like because of the use of strings in it. I was pretty busy this afternoon aside from a few e-mails with Amanda.  I called Mary Joe Quinn around noon to offer my condolences about John’s passing.  She told me how hard things had been in the few weeks since he’d been home- how he could hardly move except for his left arm and how it was difficult to move him around.  She gave me the awesome details about what happened right before he …

Charity Purses

I got up at 6:00 this morning to go surfing and got the the Frazelle house at about 6:30.  Hannah Frazelle heard the garage door opening and closing, since I went in there to get my stuff, and came out to see who it was.  She said that her dad, Barry Frazelle, had gone back to sleep.  Michael Mercer, my brother-in-law, was supposed to come out too, but he didn’t show up either.  They’re both weenies. A bunch of Hannah’s friends were out there already, including Parrish and Brian.  Josh, a guy on the production staff at Port City Community Church, was there too.  I felt bad about not recognizing him, but I really can’t see details well without my …

Router Problems?

I started the day by going to the bank and being an idiot. Sometimes we wait until my first paycheck of the month to pay the mortgage.  On Saturday Amanda told me she’d need the checkbook during the week so, since I was planning on paying the mortgage on Monday, I went ahead and wrote out the check for that and filled out a slip that I’m supposed to submit along with it.  On the slip is a bit of information that says “If paying after (date) please pay $XXXX.XX” with the X’s standing for about $50 more than the regular mortgage payment. Well I was writing it out and noticed that the date, which is usually the fifteenth of …
