Update 4:50 p.m….Apparently Manuel is not as clueless as we thought. He told someone else he knew Beth was not interested in him. But he also knew things about her that she never told him. Stalker (Of course, I would never stalk like that…right Ethan? )
Beth had told Mike the Cop about Manuel and said that she would hire him as her body guard. Mike told her he had a counter-offer….one contract payment and the problem would be eliminated. Apparently the cops are very accomodating in our town. Good thing we know he’s joking.
I’ve been reading old emails this morning. A year can go by so fast. And the years seem to go by faster the older you get.
We met with Melissa (MelissaMurr) and her family today for lunch. We had Mexican Food at Gringos. They drove in from San Augustine this morning, and sort of…umm….got bad information from a relative on how long it would take to get here. So they were about an hour late. Steve had to go back to work before they got there, but just a few minutes after he left, he called me and said he had just passed them on the road. Bethany and I were still at the restaurant. Rachael didn’t get to go because she had to work today.
Here is me with Melissa:
Bethany with Melissa (Connie, that’s our waiter behind Beth…you would have had him in the picture, wouldn’t you! ):
And finally, another of Beth by herself. She was seeing spots for a long time after I took this one.
I asked Beth why she didn’t bring Manuel. She said (smiling) that he wasn’t working today. But Saturday he was seen dancing with a grocery cart in the Walmart parking lot.
As I was leaving the restaurant, Dr. Tony Evans came on the radio. I enjoy listening to him. He said something that I thought was interesting. Many times, when a person’s life is in chaos and they are unhappy, it isn’t that they don’t have the answers….it’s that they don’t want to accept the answers God has for them. A life will be in chaos when a person does not submit to God.
