Tales from the Empty Nest

September 8th, 2007 by Terry

Yes…I now have my couch back!! Viv has removed the years of popcorn from it and turned the cushion so Tim’s buttock marks are in the back…and I have the remote!! (Now to learn how to use it.)….hahahahah

Tim is established at St. Cloud State University; home of the fighting Huskies. He seems pretty happy…has a friendly roomate who is in the aviation program; Amy’s room is in the same dorm; the food court is across the street; but he hasn’t told us anything about the classes he’s taking….he loves the workout facilities, though. Vib has a full rendition of our trip up there on her blog (Viv of all trades)….Incidentally I promise never to create a blog, because never in my wildest dreams could I think of doing this every day).

We heard from Brady today. He’s doing well, in Talgar, Kazakhstan, about 40 km from Almaty. Living with a young couple (in their 20’s) wuith 2 little kids…he likes them a lot. The food is a mixed learning experience (lots of borscht…he likes that…but also organ meats…less enthusiasm). No internet yet in Talgar, but hopes to be on-line in a week or so, but he has a cell phone and as of today, we can converse via Skype and other exotic techniques. He may not use his blog (unless he makes it private) cuz the Peace Corps is twitchy about blogs. Of course a great deal more info exists on Viv’s blog (second commercial in 2 paragraphs).

    Since Brady probably isn’t going to use HIS blog, I was going to switch the link at the top of the page to Viv’s blog. But I can’t find the address! I think I have it at work. Can you post it here and I’ll add it to my blog list?

    HeyTerry – Good to hear some comments from you! You always have a different twist to things. I just read Viv’s blog–verrry interesting, as they say. Glad she can keep everyone in the picture–it’s sure not for me!

    I’m pretty sure that was Scott.

    Scott (if you are, indeed, Anonymous), I issued your invitation on the 24th of August. I sent it to your work e-mail address. Should I re-invite? To a different e-mail? It will say something like “Viv of all Trades” blog.

  10. Scott (the aged and sexy) Says:

  11. Terry Says:
