Keith has been taking flying lessons. In a couple of days , he has learned to fly, an ultralight, a helicopter and a 747. He catches on fast. The cool thing is, he can fly over anywhere on earth. Yes indeed, right from the comfort of his computer!
He got a new game called Flight Simulator. Its like a souped up version of Google Earth. You can see all the details of any city on earth from the pilots seat! He's been retracing our trip around London and Ireland, a couple of years ago. He's up over Greenwich at the moment. He looks funny as his head keeps twisting in all kinds of odd angles to keep his eyes level with the horizon as he maneuvers the skies! I keep telling him to hurry, because we have Blog plans for dinner. Josie is having us and a few other folks over for dinner tonight. Looks like we will have to go in the helicopter, as she live right downtown, and we can't land the concord on her front street! Josie, I hope you have a landing pad on top of your building. You will have to read Josie's blog to understand this post.
While Keith is playing Pilot, the kids are out in the living room playing a new game called Catan. Cities and Knights. You wont find this on the shelf at Wal*mart, besides Mono*poly and Twis*ter. Its a novelty game. My son and his friends buy games from an elite gaming shop in Vancouver. They like playing all sorts of games with maps, based on history. They also enjoy Dungeons and Dragons. They get together at least once a week to have a session. I love that they enjoy playing games and hanging out at home, whether it be ours or a friends. When so many 19 year olds are out clubbing on Saturday night, these guys are here.
My sweet little baby girl is still determined to go to naval base training for the whole summer. She will learn to live off the land, repel up and down a cliff, do intense physical training, learn to march for miles! Learn to handle a firearm. She will also spend time on a frigate (not sure of that spelling). She will also spend a week familiarizing herself with aboriginal heritage. Why the last bit? How does native history have anything to do with military training? Well the program is called Camp Raven. It is for children of aboriginal families. (Keith is Metis) Only a few kids are chosen, so we will have to see if she is one of the lucky ones. None of her friends want to go, this is so unlike her, but she is really hyped. And she's NOT playing games with me.
Ok. Keith finaly stopped flying high and now he is practicing his online guitar lesson. Isnt he cute? The next Tim McGraw! And you will be able to say you knew him before he was famous!
Yes folks the Saturday nights around here are pretty wild!
My game? Is blogging a game? I like playing that. I have recently opened an account with Flickr and I am enjoying playing with it. It's a great way to store photos on the web. I am in the process of uploading some of my favorite photos. You can access my photos through the little Flickr Flasher in my side bar. You can browse through them or set it to slideshow. Be sure to check it often for updates.
Okay time to get dressed for the dinner party! Think Ill slip into my PJs and fuzzy house coat. Are you playing games tonight?
