Maybe the dolphin owed someone some money ??

I am gonna try and make this short......

I am thrilled to annouce that I received a letter today from Troy University Montgomery Campus stating that they have accepted me into their undergraduate program for this fall semester.
I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled and excited I am to be going back to school . This has been 10 long LONG LONG years in the making and I am stoked to be going back.....FINALLY!
It may take me 5 years to finish but by goodness I am going to do it!!!!

In other news ....
We leave on Saturday for a mission trip for 8 days......While I am excited to be going I am not excited to be driving 580 miles in one day. I am looking forward to doing good work and great things while on this trip ....Keep us in your prayers!

They are shooting Dolphins in California.
Maybe its just another indication that California is a strange place but it seems they are shooting dolphins out there now. I read online that 4 dolphins washed up on shore between Carlsbad and Oceanside. Was this a mob hit? Kinda like Luka Bratsi sleeps with the fishes?? Did these dolphins owe money to some pool shark?? Get it ? POOL SHARK !!!HEHEHEHEHE
Anyway strange stuff going on out there on the West coast .....I called my friends Cyndi and Rick and told them to get back to Alabama SOON. They have lived in Oceanside for 7 years now .....Hmmmmm maybe they shot the dolphins.????
Poor Flipper!
