June & July Update:
I broke my left fibula sliding into third base playing softball during the first game of the seasonI am healing up well now, 7 weeks post injury. I saw the surgeon this week and he said that I do not need to come back unless I have problems. Graduation of sorts . . . I am doing PT for many more weeks, but the guy who is working with me is solid.
- We took a nice trip up to the Columbia River Gorge with Sara’s family for a week. Her brother came out from Uganda to surprise her, too, and it was a wonderful time.
- I am in the process of moving my websites from my old web host, 1and1.com to a new one: siteground.com. I can’t say enough good things about how smooth the whole process has been, too. Great customer service and easy to understand instructions for transferring my sites, even those running on the WordPress platform.
Baseball season is upon us and my son is playing again which means many evenings of games and practices – all good funJonah won his league’s championship this week! He had a great season with a great group of kids who learned a lot and had fun.
- Reading: I finished up Sherman Alexie’s new book, a memoir, “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me.” Quite a read, that’s for sure. He gives voice to the experience of a modern day reservation Indian who went to a city. He crosses the boundaries of the reservation and of being out in an urban area, comparing & contrasting those parts of his life. He also dissects the history and pain of his relationship with his mother pretty darn well, too. He’s always a good read from my biased perspective, but this is a good one.
