Got Clue?



We had a wonderful weekend on the Cape. Almost all of it was spent inside though as we have not seen the sun in since last week and are not going to see it till perhaps sometime next week. Josh and I did get out to do a little ocean fishing. No fish to show for three hours of work, but we did get some bites, a lot of wind and a kite surfing show. I had never seen such a thing in real life, but this guy would catch air and he'd be in the air for at least 4 seconds doing all sorts of twists and spins. Most of the weekend was spent playing the board game Clue. We played eight games in three days. Everyone won at least one, but Josh won 5 times. We were hooked. Each of us had our own version of shorthand to keep track of who guessed what and who showed cards to whom, etc. So we have a new "it" game. Did you know: Miss Scarlet always goes first? Mrs. Peacock has the shortest distance to get to her first room (6 spaces), while Mrs. White has the furthest to go (13 spaces), thus none of us ever selected her as a character. There was a lot of watching Laura Jane rolling around and playing with her toys. I was even in charge of watching her from time to time! Whoa. Lots of resting and chit-chat. A nice break from the busyness of school and work. But now that I am back, I am working hard. Finished a paper on the integration of Theology and Psychology on Monday (not too difficult considering I double majored in Religion and Psychology at Hillsdale). Slowly checking off items on my academic list for the break. By the way, we are loving all the comments. We read each one. I just need to do a better job of responding to comments with my own like my friend Hack Rambler does (http://silentmorbidity.blogspot.com/). Should be a new post up soon as I have had several good ideas in my head, but had to get this one in first. Till then, as one of our favorite comedians, Brian Regan, would say, "Take Luck."

I know, I know...I'm just now getting around to posting comments...I accept the chastisement, okay? ;-) It's always great to read about the doings of you and the *real* Mrs. Miller :-) keep up the great blogging! And blame my lazy comment-posting habits on the French 35-hour work week :-)

Kwin, Just read your e-mail. Great to hear things are well. But you really need to do a blog. It's better if you do not write a lot anyway. Just write a litttle bit on a frequent basis. Get on it girl.

Wow, Kim, it's great to hear about how you're able to write papers and study theology AND work at the same time . . . oh, wait, it must be Lucas writing the entry this time ;-)

Glad to hear you're back and working hard. Keep up the good posting!

BTW, Lucas, have you clicked on the "SeeKwin" link on the bottom of my webpage? It allows you to do just that, if you haven't already.

You two are sure seeing alot of pretty country. The cape sounds nice. Maybe next time it won't be raining so you can get out and really enjoy it.
That little girl sure is cute. Makes me miss our little Kathryn. Pat's granddaughter. She is 4mo. now, we miss her. It's not fun she lives in Maryland, so we don't see her very much.
Take care Love you both
