Busy Day

Warning: there is a picture of a urinal in this post.

Yesterday was busy. In all the excitement, I forgot it was Peggy’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Peggy! Woo hoo!

After morning devotions yesterday, I was headed back to my classroom and saw what heretofore I have only heard: the rooster that lives in the bougainvillea bushes behind my classroom. I hear him crow every morning when I get to school and it makes me laugh. I think a rooster crowing is a really funny sound.
It was still kind of dim, so the picture is blurry.

We fly to Oahu this morning for a teachers conference.

By midday, I had to make a quick run to the bathroom. The boys bathroom at school has weird urinal tablets. They look very crumbly. I had a very long conversation about them with my co-worker Paul. We were wondering out loud if the kids were smashing them or something. We guessed that the tablets break up on their own, but I still had my doubts. Out of an overwhelming sense of curiosity, I touched one. They are not soft at all. The crumbliness must be an engineered attribute.
They smell nice.

After school, I needed some ingredients for a salad for Bible study. I went to Safeway, greeted the parking lot chicken, and went inside. Carnation was on sale! Woo hoo! I took all but two boxes off the shelf. I wanted to leave something for other people.
I will need to be a bargain shopper here.  Food is kind of expensive.

We fly back from Oahu tonight.  Two flights in one day?  Ack!

    Two flights in one day?!?! So you’re basically carpooling with an airplane? That is nuts. Have fun at the conference!

    I love the chickens! If we are going for names here, I vote for Kellogg (for the morning rooster) and PLuCky (Parking Lot Chicken). If we are not going for names here, pardon my intrusion.

    Does the school have its own plane….like the schools over here have buses?

    Enjoy the flights….at least they’ll be short & hopefully not too windy! I think you’ll be ok because all the wind is currently here in Balto.

    Love Kellogg! Maybe you could record him one morning.

    And now there’s proof that when we say, “Brad’s up before the roosters”, we are not just kidding.
