Hot, Humid Days of Mid-August

This just in from the internet-less Speckhals’ posting from the church computer:

We had a great weekend, praise the Lord.  Friday night, we took about 45 teens and adults from the church to the 8th & I Marine Barracks in Washington DC (a little over 2 hours away) to watch the evening parade.  It was amazing!

But…on the way back, the church bus blew out a rear-inner tire.  We didn’t get home until almost 3:30a.  We were just a 15 miles from church when the tire decided to do its own thing, which made it easier to get home.  Everyone’s parents came to the truck stop, and we got a ride with someone back to church.  The bad news is that we will not be able to run the bus itself until we get 4 new tires on the rear of the bus.  We will have to run the church van instead.

My side of the family is coming to visit for a few days!  It should be fun to show them around a little bit.  They will be here tomorrow early in the afternoon.

Some great news I just read a few minutes ago–President Obama caved in and put up the white flag to those of us who didn’t want socialistic health care!  See the news here.

  1. Hey Dustin,
    Sounds like things are going good in PA. We had a similar situation with our van. Some punks decided to bust out our back window on it making it unavailable for the first night of our vacation bibles school. So we used a few personal vehicles to do the pick-ups. By the way your geovisitor thing doesn’t have me in the right location. I’m south of the bay near highway 358. Anyway, talk to ya later.
