happy birthday america!

ok, not really, i don't care much about america's birthday. but tomorrow is also my mommer's birthday. that i care about. i love my mommy!!

ok, anyways. to answer some questions: aunt marla -- i don't have a digital camera, but i think in a few months i can save up enough to buy a decent one. i wouldn't advise sending a camera though, only because apparently expensive devices sent to kz sometimes end up "lost or missing."

back to the 'stan: everything in k-stan is going well. it's hot, i don't speak russian, and i still poop in an outhouse.

but seriously, i'm doing very well. we went to almaty yesterday and
it was super fun. we went to the peace corps headquaters and that
place is plush: they had 2 showers AND toilets!! god bless america!!
tomorrow we get to go to see some petroglyphs which are apparently
very old and very famous. i say apparently b/c when i was told about
the trip i heard: blah blah blah petroglyphs blah blah no class on
monday. blahdy blah.

some of the americans in my village want to try to have a cook out some time this week for the fourth. it's kind of funny b/c we know where we can buy hot dogs, but we can't find anyplace that sells hot dog buns. i guess we'll have to improvise. any suggestions?

keep reading and keep commenting!!! (or, in gramma lyn's case; keep printing off my postings. it's nice to know that a hard copy of this exists somewhere).

Uh-oh
Looks like you might have to use welfare hot dog buns, wrap a piece of sliced bread around it.

Or you could cut them in half and put the 2 pieces side by side in a split dinner roll!

Have a great Holiday you crazy kids!

Everything's good on pita bread. oh wait,
I guess the cookout is over by now anyway. What the HELL will it be like when the alzheimer's really kick in?? ::sigh:: hint: I won't have to worry about pooping in an outhouse.Ha!
