One Day Until We Fly

The Reason we Fly Tomorrow

We will fly tomorrow to pick up this little girl from China.  It has been quite the day, though.  I have been working on a last will and testament.  We didn’t have one and so it seems appropriate to make one out with international travel on the near horizon.  Unfortunately all the on-line programs asked for personal information so that you would get your ‘free’ template.  In the end we bought Quicken Willmaker. I also got the documents about our tax dispute from the local Edward Jones office.  Our financial advisor thinks that the forms we now have will show the IRS that they owe us money.  That took the pressure off for the moment until we found that one of us had lost the only key to our Mini Cooper.  I had to leave to teach at Harvest Christian Academy in the Land Rover because it had not been found. 

At Harvest I saw my old friend Roger Kettering and taught a couple of classes the British perspective on the Revolutionary War.  As you can see I dressed up and used Romans 13 as my basis to convince them not to join the rebellion.  I also found some origional recruiting pamphlets and first hand accounts of British civility and kindness which contrasts the Mel Gibson Patriot image of the British.  In fact I found that The Patriot was listed by TIME magazine among the ten most historically misleading movies of all time http://entertainment.time.com/2011/01/26/top-10-historically-misleading-films/#the-patriot-2000 .

 Before dinner I found the Mini key in the bottom of the kitchen rubbish bin and had a visit from Daryl’s social worker and the Powells from next door.  After dinner I am packing and getting the last details taken care of.
