Good news! Jim finally has a nickname…”The Smart One”…and it wasn’t even given to him by Sparky, Doc or Mudder. Still no nicknames for the Nashville guys…at least nothing we can blog. Joe should be about fed up with Troy by now…but somehow he’s not. Today we built up the foundation to level and began work a wall for the main compound. Though we know that God, mercifully, does not keep score, Sergei gave the thumbs up to the Tennessee section of the wall while the Florida section met with a non-committal shrug. Tennessee 1 Florida 0, and how often does that happen. Art and Michael…..representing! In the afternoon we unloaded our first truckload of block…18 tons…we laughed to keep from crying…over future chiropractic co-payments. It was a long, full, rich day…I want to ask you all to pray for and praise God for Ira…she has the unenviable and unforgiving job of wrangling and disciplining the nine of us. I will have fond memories of being on the receiving end of her fantastic wit and humor. Tonight she took us to Yalta for a “peaceful” dinner. Afterwards, Shawn showed off his “shrewd” money management skills by trading 20 grivna for 1 in return. Way to go Shawn. Now sleep comes quickly unless your roommate wants to stay up talking about how great his wife is…Your comments bring us joy and motivation…keep them coming. All our love
