Good and busy day. Slept extremely well last night and got 10 hours of shut-eye. Oh, while I am thinking about it. When you receive the blog if you want to reply could you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? I don’t check Word Press very often but I do check my email each day. Did some miscellaneous errand running this morning. Then Jean Claude, Louis and I went to a grocery store to buy some things for the trip. I bought virtually no food as we will be eating in hotel restaurants. Bought some Coke Light and a few candy bars; just the essentials! We went to lunch after the grocery store. Once you order your food you have enough time to read “War and Peace”. It was delicious (although not as nice as my snack last night). Have already Skyped Linda and Charlie Brown. They are doing well. Last night Linda went to something at school that our 8 or 9 year old granddaughter was in and then on Friday Junior (her older brother) is in something at school. I sure miss those wonderful events! Have been working on various things to get prepared for tomorrow. We have made a slight change and will go directly to Bertoua tomorrow. The bus from here to Yaounde is about 4 hours and we will then switch to another bus and the ride is 5-6 hours. It is shorter than in the past because most of the road to Bertoua is now a tar road. In the past it was a bad dirt and rock road. Oh, I did get to ride a machine a couple of times today so I am happy.
Within the next day or two I will start sending pictures from Cameroon. I left my regular camera at home and am using my IPhone but keep forgetting I have it. The picture below is of our oldest son Robin, his wife Meleah and their son Ethan. Like the other grandkids, his growth has been stunted for some reason as Ethan is 12. I was going to post a picture of my darling wife but she knows what it looks like and she threatened to ‘tan my hide’ (those were her words) if I posted it and she has a memory like an elephant so you will only have to guess as to what it looked like. Of course, any picture of her is stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for your prayers and emails. After today I will no longer have wireless so everything will slow down but you won’t notice anything.
