my 3rd visit….

Today marked my 3rd visit to the Anglican Church with the family… the structure remains intact and seems quite able to handle my presence…. actually… seems much better than philip’s handling of his presence there in the structure… I continue to work on my attitudes… 🙂

Always good to be with the family… good time with Nate watching part of the games, plus my usual eating and sleeping… looking forward to a quiet evening with Ellen and , as always, looking forward to what He will be putting on my plate tomorrow….  🙂

another Wenham day….

after the wild experience of the night at the Gordon fundraiser… I thought maybe we would have a little time to finally catch our breath a little….  not…. doesn’t seem to be any such thing  on any day  around here… ellen is always busy helping to  take  kids places and  pick them up… today was Lian’s  archery day … Anna had a morning soccer game… Nate had an afternoon soccer game… she even dragged  her husband along  to the soccer games….  then…. besides all that… ellen was preparing dinner for both sides of the driveway…. what turned out to be an amazing Lasagna Alfredo….  yummmmm!

I asked her if she was willing to get in the photo tonight so folks would realize that she has survived yet another Wenham day… Think she looks pretty good myself… what do you think?     🙂

Things will only get busier, as Dano is on his way tonight for one of his business trips to Rwanda for a little over a week… Lord…. we ask you to just keep your hand on him all the while.

nate’s big night…

what a night it was for the little guy… Nathaniel Nyonzima Jukanovich… the Nate-ster was in another zone from all this…. the other young fellow is one of nate’s buddies who came with us…

never before….

all these years of stuff I have been a part of… and the several thousand  “meetings”  … in all of that… including the almost 50,000 people that time in  Giant’s Stadium…. never have I even come close to what I  experienced tonight  at Gordon College.

I understand there were around  1400 people  packed into the Gordon College Gym…  it was like a  gigoondick pep rally for the athletic department  …. with a show put on by the Harlem Globetrotters…. followed by a message from  Tim Tebow…. and what a great message… the guy is for real…

He was speaking to the athletes…. with story after story… that it’s not about all the great victories… achievements… it’s about  people…  all the stories showed that that was what was important in his life…. his athletic achievements were only a platform to help  people.

He wound it up with a great exhortation to  “finish strong”… something I have been asking the Lord to help me to do.

Great night….  🙂IMG_2568.JPG

continuing our walk…

as we continue to stroll around the house, I just feel more and more thankful for everything the Lord has done to put us in this place… boggles my mind…. this is the right side of the  “Market Stand”  which has now become our  home.

this doorway goes into our bedroom… the 2-car garage extends from the door to the driveway…. across the driveway… you can see the big barn… dano’s truck and the Jukanovich family’s home…

Moving right along… we get a full orbed view of the centerpiece of the driveway area… the basketball hoop…. very meaningful in the Wolff family tradition… always had a hoop in our driveway at every house we lived in……  🙂

Also note the old fella’s form as he  swishes  one….the same form that he has  passed down  to son Jonathan (Jon was the point guard at U-32 high school when they won the State Championship)… also… please note that I am wearing the American University basketball shorts that Jon gave me…  AU was where Jon played his college hoops…

you might also want to know that as I watch Nathaniel practice… dribbling two balls at the same time and sinking shot after shot (he is in 3rd grade)  … that… I must ever so humbly report… the passing along of my basketball genes to Nate as well….

doctor day…

ellen took me to meet my new doctor today… great guy…  great visit… all the details would  bore  you… but… he put me on an anti-biotic for an  infection  that’s just starting on my right leg…. got lots of good info during our time with him….and, best of all, it has helped to take a major load off ellen about her concerns… especially the two huge  “bubbles”  on my right leg.

We see him again in a week… he has also sent us to a  wound clinic  at the hospital in Salem next week to deal with all the open sores on both my legs…. and they have taken four vials of blood in order to perform every test one can imagine… waiting to hear on the results.

Everything else seems ok… still mostly sleeping, eating and putting my legs up…. but walking a little more.  You’ll have to let me know how I look….   🙂  This is the old fella relaxing in his Lazy-Boy at 11pm… ready to go put my feet up and do what I do best….  sleep!    🙂

the truth is….

When it comes to something like the  root cellar  … it can be whatever the owners want it to be… and… with an owner like Dano… you could make it into whatever your vision is… these pictures are the result of his handiwork…

Then… when you have what you want…. I guess you can use it any way you like as well…

I didn’t see any roots…. dead bodies…. smokers…. just a very unique room to hold  “special gatherings”   in….
