My friend Yerko, the adventurer
Today Rebecca was trying to trick John into letting her spray conditioner in his armpit. John turns to her and says, "That's for your hair, you idiot!." I say, "John! Where did you hear that?" but he just smiled and thought he was pretty funny.
Right now he has a pile of big, juicy worms on a shovel he is showing me. I have been digging a sandbox in the backyard and I keep having to soak the dirt to loosen it up. Of course the kids think it is a giant mud toy box and have been making a holy mess out there.
I was able to get in touch with a good friend from high school, Yerko Dekovic. He is doing incredible things in his life and right now he has been gone about a year in South America traveling around surfing as he goes. He has spent some considerable time on his own driving his truck in the jungle, on sand and so forth. Check out his site at http://surfadv.net/thetravelers.html. It is pretty amazing. I've included a few pics here. Note the one of his truck--he stopped his solo driving in Nicaragua to take a picture of it.
Why is my life looking dull?
