Please keep the families of the four officers who were murdered in your thoughts and prayers. I know how difficult it is for them, coming out of a similar situation myself. Lets also pray that justice will be served, and that the police will find this villain rapidly.
Happy Thanksgiving, to you all!! May we be truely thankful this Thanksgiving for: family, our country, freedom etc. May we also be thankful for our soldiers, who have to spend the holidays in foriegn lands away from friends and family defending our freedoms. Enjoy the feast!!!
Our Dad's memorial service went very well. Thank you to all who attended. We have been overwhelmed at the support each of you have given us.
This past Saturday, Jonathan and I were invited to build a computer. Now as most of you know, we are not techies whatsoever, so this was going to be huge learning experience. Much to my surprise it was really easy, and was just like building an erector set. Now we can build a computer, but don't ask us to fix it. Here are some pictures of the process.
This is all the hardware that goes inside the computer. The monitor shows the computer working with all the pieces sitting on the desk.
This is the computer tower completely empty, waiting for the hardware to be installed.
Now that no one reads our blog I thought I should probably make a post. Things have been pretty busy around here. As I am sure most of you already know, my Dad's cancer returned in full force this past January, and things have been touch and go for the entire year. You can see what has been going on at bryanpollock.blogspot.com.
I have also left the police explorers for various reasons, and have switched over to the Civil Air Patrol. Josiah, my younger brother, has also joined with me. It has been a lot of fun, and I would recommend it to anyone!!
A dream of mine also came true a couple weeks ago. For many many years I have wanted a dog, I am now the proud owner of a black lab named Duke. It has been a semi challenge training him, but slowly and surely we're getting there. I will try to upload pictures of him sometime soon.
I will try to update this thing better in the future!!
