Tuesday was a pretty awesome day, so I'm going to write about Tues:

We really didn't do a ton, especially in the afternoon. We all woke up and met Al at 7:30 at Jittery Joe's for coffee to talk about Crisis Ministries. I'd like working there, assisting with the support groups. BiPolar or Survivors of Suicide maybe... Anyway, we came back to the house and chilled for a bit and made a couple more appointments, then Father Dave came by: MONEY! :-) We all got our allowances "Thanks dad!" Then Jake went to the library, Dan to the soup kitchen, and Kelli and I ran around town for a while. We set up my bank account and then drove around for a bit trying to find the YMCA. It's pretty nice, the Y. All the buildings here are pretty impressive... Imagine that, in lil' ol' Anderson.

Anyway, we got home and our appointment with the hospice had been cancelled. We had nothing until 1830, the next night. I dozed a little, we had dinner and then, sheer boredom hit us. We drove around Anderson looking for a bowling alley. We found one, that had been shut down... That's when we drove to the dam on Lake Hartwell. It was so beautiful and peaceful out... We were the only ones there. The water was so calm and still with just a few lights from the other side of the lake reflecting over it... The water was incredibly inviting... and next thing I know Dan strips to his skivvies and jumps in. About a minute and half later, I jump into my birthday suit and slip in to the cool water. It was so great. I love skinny dipping, it's incredibly freeing.... We swam around for about 20 minutes, and I slipped out. We hung out on the rocks for about 15/20 more minutes... contemplated driving to Atlanta...

In the end we drove to Clemson Boulevard and found a bowling alley. There was only about enought time for one game, but that's enough time for Kelli and Dan to put away a bitcher of Coors Light. After that it just got funnier. If it was possible for Dan to be an even bigger goofball....

Well we went home and put away some chips and salsa and just lounged around the living room for a bit. Nearly fell asleep rubbing each others heads...
