Here's a brief update on a few things that have happened over here recently:
1) We got a cow, but she's not giving a lot of milk, and she might soon be traded for another.
2) We got three chickens and thirteen chicks, but the chicks were all killed by an unknown predator and the others disappeared, perhaps taken away by the said predator. Two of my little brothers think it was an owl that they saw in the trees, and since they later caught an owl on camera (a neighbor's wild game camera), they're pretty sure that's what was causing the demise and disappearance of the barnyard fowl. We now have nine hens from the neighbor who lent us the motion-detector camera as well (unless any have died or vanished).
3) I'm still trying to find a photography job, so I'm writing down the info of a whole bunch of photographers in Memphis...hopefully something will work out.
4) My aunt said she'd sell me her 1998 BMW M3, so as soon as it gets shipped from El Paso to here, I'll have a car - and a much nicer and faster car than my old one even though it doesn't look as sporty. Even an older E36 M3 like that one is supposed to do 0-60 in about 5.5 seconds. :D It's yellow, but although I'd prefer a color like black or gun metal grey, I'm certainly not complaining ;-) - if I can get it for not too much more than the cost of shipping, it'll be pretty good (as long as repairs - which I'm sure will be much more than my old Japanese car - don't bankrupt me).
5) I might get at least one other cool thing like the M3, but I'm not sure yet, so if I find out for certain I'll write about it.
6) I recently finished the Dragons In Our Midst series, by Bryan Davis, and I thought it was pretty good...very absorbing and pretty well-written in my opinion. One of the things I liked about it was how the author wove technical language with poetry and adventure, romance, and more to make a well-rounded, interesting series of novels.
7) We've been going to a church in Coldwater, MS, and although being around an hour-and-a-half means it's not likely that anyone from the church will come to to our house for a visit, it's pretty nice. I've made a few friends (a brother and sister in particular), and I like it.
8) Many dragonflies (perhaps even a hundred or more) fly around our yard nearly every day, and little frogs climb on the windows at night (and try to catch insects). I like my little friends. :)
I guess that's all I really have to say for now.
