    So just when I thought it couldn’t get any more interesting, as far as haircuts, than my last post…. I was in Carrefore (yes the French version of Walmart) and I walked by this kid… and well… I’m not sure what his parents are trying to accomplish.  I’ve seen a lot of interesting haircuts for kids like the shaved head except for a small braided ponytail, the bowl cut, the fauxhawk…. but this one I think I’m calling the panda cut.

    Here are the long promised pictures of my room with the framed pictures!

    On the far wall I have what I’m calling my home wall.  I have my Dodger poster (that has been in every house I’ve lived in except for one) and pictures of my family, best bud, and dogs! The green one has a picture of my parent’s dog Nikko, in the upper corner there’s a picture of my old dog Peenut, then there’s the Christmas picture of my parents and the dogs, a picture of the family in Georgia on some plantation, a small picture of my cousin Doug, and then a picture of me and Syl in San Diego.  It’s great to wake up in the morning and be able to have a little bit of home to look at!

    This wall is my “Shoes” wall.  I’ve got my friend Katy’s feet walking in Dali, 3 generations of Ruth’s family walking home, Katy and my friend Beth’s feet while riding a ski-lift thing in Kunming, and Syl’s leg standing in San Fran.  I like how shoes/feet can show us where we’ve been and take us to where we’re going.  =)  They are definitely some of my more artsier pictures.

    This is my “Light” wall.  Anyone who’s been around me and my camera knows my fascination for lamps, lanterns, fire, and other types lights.  This wall shows a bunch of lanterns that I’ve taken.  The top and the bottom are actually from Walt Disney World (specifically Animal Kingdom) and the middle one is from Beijing (Temple of Heaven), while the fire shot is from Disneyland.  They’re strategically on my wall that has my light switch.  =)

    Here’s my pic in the bathroom.  A pretty cool clipper in South Carolina.  I think it’s one of my best pics!

    I think I still want to put up a few more.  I just haven’t decided on which ones.  It’s been fun to decorate the room it’s just kind of annoying that it’s a longer process.  I have to get the picture printed, then take the photo over to the frame place, wait a few more days there… then measure out where I want it on the wall, AND then go to the little hardware shop to get the guy to come drill the holes for me (since the walls are all concrete!).

    More fun pictures to follow from Dragon Boat Day!  But that’s all for now!

    You look at me every morning? How sweet. And scary.

    Dear LeighAnn,
    Please pardon my absence – including the minded kind. With the end of school things have been kind of busy and with the task of cleaning out my office and transferring some of my duties to others . . . well, you get the picture.
    As for hair-dos – who am I to talk, but the kid with the Panda cut was certainly original. As for your language learning – you have certainly taken on a big project. Each language has its idioms and colloquialisms which can be very complicating.
    Linda and I had a wonderful week-end. Saturday we went with Joan, David, and Hannah to the railroad museum in Perris and that was both fun and interesting. Yesterday we had father’s day and birthdays parties for Vicky and Alisha and the guest list included Jona and Nick as well as Joan, David, Warren, Doug, Darren, Alisha, Hannah, Wayne, Linda, and Vicky. It was great.
    Tomorrow, we are starting to remove the roof. We need one that doesn’t leak. The lawn we worked so hard on has to be redone. The grass we put in is just plain weird. So I will kill it and get some Marathon grass.
    All the best to you, and I will try to be more diligent and timely with my replies.
    Love you!
    John

    Sigh… Dad and I must have crashed the party John was talking about since we weren’t on the guest list…!

  • LupLup Says:

    John- taking off the roof sounds like an extreme way to get rid of leaks. Usually people just replace the roof or repair it, but I suppose just removing it makes it so you never have to fix it again!

    Mom- guess when I leave you guys don’t make the guest list anymore, bummer. I’ll try to put a good words for you guys, maybe you’ll be on the list for the next party. Or now that you have the practice in crashing parties you aren’t on the guest list for, I hear that the White House throws pretty good parties.
