So Dustin had to have crutches for a week, and will be heading back to Maine at the end of the month for surgery. Didn’t want to leave you all hanging on my last post. Oops, I guess I did.

Right now I am siting in a clinic waiting room, while dorm-mate Dustin is getting his knee checked on. Apparently he was jogging and it went out of joint. Playing risk on my phone while I wait.
Thank you mom for the 19 years of free haircuts! I just paid $13 for one today. It was getting time, I even had some paint in my hair…
I have been studying pretty hard after the first Bible Survey class on Saturday. There will be a quiz on Monday, and a quiz on Monday’s work Tuesday, and Tuesday’s Wednesday, and so on. I printed up some flashcards to help make things a little easier to memorize.
I have some more painting pictures from Friday, we had fun working on the Barn and some on the garage as well.
Myself, Jake, and Dustin worked 8 1/2 hours at a fireworks warehouse yesterday. Bro. Dean Shearer from Fargo Baptist invited us to come and work unloading and transporting boxes of fireworks. Memory Fireworks is a large multi-store company in North Dakota and Minnesota. This warehouse services nine other stores. First off, we had to rearrange boxes of fireworks in the warehouse. There were several pallets of firework boxes that needed to be combined on pallets in the other side of the warehouse. We worked alongside of Jesse and Jordan Shearer, who told us the way that things should be organized. Jordan also used the pallet loader to move loaded pallets around. Another worker named Norm soon arrived to help as well.
As soon as that job was finished, we waited for the Semi to arrive. Soon it came, loaded to the brim with boxes of fireworks. First the bolts had to be cut with a bolt cutter, then the doors opened. When the door was opened, there was a large wooden contraption that had to be sawed away to get at the contents. Then was the real work. At first just I was in the truck, handing down boxes. Then there was room for Jesse, then Dustin, and soon Jake too. Norm and Jordan helped by putting certain fireworks boxes on pallets, and Jordan also used the pallet loader to lift pallets up so we could fill them, and then move them away.
We stopped to break at lunch time, delicious pizza, and water never tasted so good either. I also grabbed some green tea with citrus from my car that we had bought for our barn painting job. Soon we were back inside, moving boxes from the semi to the area around us.
