Alexander Week 39
October 2-8, 2004
No big changes for the week.
We have been doing a lot of the same things. My biggest challenge is
deciding which presidential candidate to vote for. I watched the debates.
Kerry is such a smooth talker, but Bush looks so funny when he talks. I
can not decide who is more entertaining. Edwards did come to the high
school just down the road, but Bush has driven the deficit to new extremes.
Hmmm...Well I still have 3 more weeks to decided.
Last weekend my folks finally took me on vacation. With all this playing I really needed to get away from home for a while. We drove up to Duluth and had a great two day visit. We went to the canal area and saw many large ships, a lighthouse and a maritime museum (see pictures). After the sightseeing we went to Famous Dave's, and after much begging I got to try some barbecue meat.
|1. 2. 3.||1-3. I had never been in a hotel before. Before I could relax I had to check out every part of it - around the bed...|
|4. 5. 6.||4-5. under the table and in
the bathroom (to maintain decency we won't show that picture).
6. My first lighthouse. I am not so sure walking along a narrow pier on a very cold and windy day to look at this thing called a lighthouse (I did not even see a light!) was worth it.
|7. 8. 9.||7-8. Now THIS was worth the
cold weather. I watched the bridge raise 100 feet in the air and a
huge ship go underneath.
9. The captain thought I was the cutest kid watching the boat, so he let me steer it for a little while.
|10.||10. After the long morning we stopped at Famous Dave's BBQ for some ribs and beer. As you can see I prefer Bud Light.|
|11. 12. 13.||11-13. Sure I look cute crawling out of the hamper. What they did not show you was that they put my pacifier inside to make me go and get it. Ha ha very funny..|
