    fear this man could possibly be a homosexual and has targeted you. Just be careful.

    Thanks weeping for the concern, but I don't believe he is gay. We just get along well as friends, plus his wife can't/won't do the things on vacation that he likes, such as riding the amusement park rides, and his kids are too small to ride with him. So I will be tagging along.

    I have been looking for a good friend ever since I have left Kentucky, and it just seems like it was meant to be for our friendship. We enjoy joking around, and we both have a good sense of humor. We enjoy hanging out together, and he has told me that he thinks of me like a brother, and I feel the same.

    Things are going well and I am having alot of fun this summer.

    Well here is my end of year update.

    All good news to report. After being here for so many years and feeling isolated, things have started to improve. Just recently I have found a church that I really love, after so many years of looking, I have finally found a church that is so similar to what I have back in Kentucky. There is only one small doctrinal difference, but I am Ok with that. The music, the preaching, everything is so what I have grown accustomed to. It took me awhile, but I finally found it. I plan on joining the church and will be baptized in the spring, as soon as it warms up. I have made several new friends at church, and that all seem like family to me now. There is even one really cute girl there that I have been kinda drawn to. She is not actually free yet, she is separated from her husband, but she does make eyes to me, and is always enthusiastically happy to see me. I am going to try to keep a little distance, given her marital situation.

    As for me and friend, after a rough spot back in the summer, we have become really good friends, we are best friends actually. He told me that he loved me like a brother, and I told him the same. I plan on spending Christmas eve with he and his family. His wife likes me too, and she is a real sweetie. He has a really beautiful family, they are all American as Mom, Apple Pie, and the Flag.

    Amanda is doing well in her new marriage, I surprisingly got a birthday card from her, I wasn't expecting that in a million years.

    I still go to Kentucky and Ohio quite a bit, but it seems I have much more going for me now here, so I plan to spend more time here this year visiting my new church, and hanging out with my new buddy Dave. We all are planning a trip to Washington DC next year with his family, and also I plan to do some fishing with him next year.

    Life is going great, and I am doing the best I can to put the JW/EX JW experience behind me. Life is starting to fall into place. Who knows, maybe in a couple of years I will be married again, and working on a family of my own.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Well JG, you brought tears to my eyes. I'm very happy to hear that life is being good to you.

    Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!

    Thank you Carla and Rebecca, Yeah life is much better now, but it hasn't been easy this year, I have had to fight to get where I am now. But things are so much better. I love my new church, I thank God for my friend Dave, I consider him a blessing from heaven. He loves to hear me talk about my hometown in Kentucky, and he said today that he would love to ride up there for the day and do some 4-wheeling. I can't wait. Now if I could only talk him into taking guitar lessons with me. That is my New Years resolution for this year, to take guitar lesssons, I would love to be able to pick and sing for church, they have already asked me to be their music director.

    Well I can't post here that often, just thought I would check in. I will see you all later and check in down the road.
