Odds and Ends

I borrowed Scott's bike rack in April. Cami and I used it in our trip down to St. George. For months the bike rack was used in our front room to help create a barrier between our Cedar chest and our box of shoes. It was a momentous occasion when I finally returned the bike rack to it's rightful owner and took this picture. I sent this picture to literally thousands...if not hundreds of people to celebrate the return of the bike rack. I apologize if you were not one of the "hundreds" that received this picture which represents the completion of the lender-borrower contract. 
Bryce, Monte, and I were able to go fishing a few times this fall. I'm hoping to find a few weeks this winter to go freeze out on the Provo River with Bryce. I finally caught my first fish. I didn't have my phone with me at the time so I couldn't take a picture, but what's the fun in a fish story if there is a picture... The picture below is of Bryce holding a 14" rainbow trout that he caught about 1/2 hour after I caught a 12" brown trout. We took this picture because #1 I had my phone with me, and #2 we don't see too many rainbow in the Provo; mostly brown. It was good to catch my first fish using a fly rod and reel.
A few days after I caught my fish I was able to go to the Radio from Hell show with my cousin, Aaron. The X96 program wanted to hear of my fishing expedition. Okay, not really... I went up with Aaron because he is a BFOP (Best Friend Of the Program). It was cool to see how they interact during their show and how everything works. Thanks for the once-in-a-lifetime experience, Aaron.

Last Saturday Bryce and Kristy Russell invited us to a dinner to help Camp Kesem raise funds for their summer-time activities. This event was held at the Wilkinson Center on BYU campus. After we ate, and enjoyed the silent auction we went downstairs to the BYU bowling alley. Bowling hasn't been the same since my mission. I just can't get the spin figured out anymore. I spin the ball way too much and ends up in the left-side gutter most of the night. Here are our scores for one of our games. After a few frames I stopped trying to get strikes, but tried only to get 5s and 7s. It makes for a much more interesting night.

Well I wasn't included in the THOUSANDS that got the picture. I'm probably, probably, going to be offended for forever. But way to wrap things up. Both the contract and the fish :)
