Kim and I had a great time with her parents when they visited last week. We spent an afternoon at the New England Aquarium and saw "Deep Sea in 3-D" at the IMAX theater. Another afternoon we poked around downtown Portsmouth, NH visiting several little giftshops before purchasing a bunch of chocolate from an old German-Irish woman with attitude. Kim and I felt like royalty as her parents took us out to eat a lot, which was fun, but we are paying the price for it this week in the gym. The bad news was that the first afternoon her parents were here we got into an accident. I was rear-ended which caused me to hit the car in front of me. The car is currently in the shop and since MA does not have a no-fault law, the insurance company of the guy who rear-ended me will be paying for everything. Our friends in the building have graciously loaned us their car until ours is back, hopefully at the end of this week. I am currently deep into my intensive 2 week study on Mark and am working on an exegesis paper on the passage where Jesus overturns the tables and chairs in the temple because of the moneychangers and dove sellers who are gouging the poor. Should be very interesting to write on. I am flying to MI this weekend to be an usher in my high school friend's (Eric Clancy)wedding. I am very much looking forward to the celebration. Goodbye for now.
