I'm back! (and now I'm gone!)

Howdy y'all!
How are you all doing? It's nice to have my wifi back!!! Ah, the things we take for granted... :D
Speaking of taking things for granted, Happy Independence Day! Folks, I hope none of you take our (quickly diminishing) freedoms for granted. We've been blessed to be Americans, Amen? If you don't believe me, ask the Eritrean Christians who get stuffed into storage containers!!!!
I didn't make this, Intel did.
I believe one of the responsibilities of America is to defend her freedoms! Sadly, freedoms have been rapidly chipped away.
I'm now finishing the post at a hotel in MA.
Haha, I'm gone again, I'm afraid. Now we're working at a commercial job in MA. I can see why Dad didn't stay in commercial. I think I saw that in the first five minutes. Like talking to a mildly upset guy in the elevator. ;)  I hope we're done soon, because I'd really like to go haying this week, too. Well, I'm going to see if Kurt's back yet.

  2. Glad to hear from you. Yes, we take many things, especially our freedoms, for granted. I believe we are quickly losing them, though.

    I look forward to hearing more from you in the near future!

  3. Enjoyed talking to you, but will be glad when you and Dad are HOME :)!!!
    Praying that you all will have a better day of work tomorrow :).
    Construction workers sadly are known for bad language ... makes us all the more thankful for our crew :). Remember the concrete truck :) what a blessing that turned out to be for all of us :).
    Have a good night ... oops, I mean morning :( off to bed now ... hope you are already asleep :).
    Love,
    Mom
    Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    (Matthew 5:14-16)

  4. We're praying for you guys as you work "away". Will miss the family this Lord's Day too. Work hard, and we hope you can get some haying in this week too.

    1. Thanks! I hope to get the haying in next week. Mr. S has a big farm so it'll take him a while to finish.

  5. It always seems so strange when you all are not there on Sundays. Hope you have a fun time working and vacationing too. :) Aunt Nikki

    1. It's weird not being there. I guess it's kinda weird when your family can't come to. We all miss you those days! I'll see y'all next week, Lord willing! :D

  10. Hi, Nick! I was working on uploading some videos to Vimeo, and I noticed that you are one of...well, actually, my only...follower:) I tried to follow you, but it is not showing up on my page that I am following you. It is telling me, however, on your page, that I am one of your followers. Are you able to see that? I'm trying to figure out if I'm actually following you or not:)

    Thanks a lot, and have a great night!

    1. Yes, I received an email mentioning that you were following me. Thank you! :D Quick question, did your blog go private? I can't get onto it or your Mom's now. Thanks for dropping by! :D

    2. Well, I guess my computer was just being stubborn last night:) This morning Vimeo decided to inform me that I am finally following you:) Oh well, that wouldn't be the first time I had a problem with that...

      As for my blog, yes, I did take it down for now (and Mom took hers down too), and I'm not sure if I'm going to put it back up or not. I'll definitely let you know if I do. Even if I don't, I'll keep visiting yours:) I truly enjoy your posts. I thank the Lord for giving us friends all over the U.S., even if we've never met face to face!
