Finally back online



Hey everybody - did you miss us? Aaron came through Tauranga on his way up north (he has the weekend booked on the team putting air conditioning into a KH - won't the congo there be pleased - it's so hot here at the moment) and he spent the day fixing the computer problems - so now we are finally back online.
Really not much to report here but I thought I would show you how we spend our time lately - playing cards. The thing is everybody has really taken to a game Chad and Michele taught us - 9 hole golf, they called it - and now we even have championship nights. Chad and Michele - I have also showed them "Nerts" (is that how you spell it) but only the game ones want to play that. Good thing as I am likely to end up with Nerts Shoulder all over again!
As I said - it is really hot here at the moment as February is the hottest month in NZ. Pretty hard going slogging it out on the streets going from door to door and we have to have lots of shade appreciation moments under the lovely trees dotted around the place but it's all worth it. Have met some lovely people and gotten lots of calls. Yay!

Hey there Beth. The party was fun, but not as much fun as if you two were here. And Freddy was here for something to do with his thesis. He went back to Quito on Monday and will be back again in 3 wks for 3 wks. Miss you guys.

Can I just point out that I won that particular night? Doesn't happen often, so I have to make the most of it. ;)

It's cool to see others that know about Nertz. You should definitely check out http://www.playnertz.com/ , the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information, videos, and photos there AND you can play Nertz on-line for free. I recommend it to all Nertz players! So cool. =)
