Fine, I'll post since you insist. Well, today I went with Alex Fries (pronounced freeze) and gave him a tour of the Episcopal church here in town. He was duly impressed, and I did something I have never done before. I actually went up into the bell tower! We didn't actually go into the room where the bell is, but when I went to push up the trap door into that part, about three inches of pigeon poop slid off of the door! Super K would have loved it! Anyway, Alex got some pictures without actually going up there. There is only one bell, but there are two ropes. One actually swings the bell and the other is for a hammer that hits the bell. It is interesting.

The amazing part is that I actually went up there with rickity ladders and all. It was fun though. After that we went over to St. Marys and went up in their bell tower. It was pretty cool, I could see Plum Brook Station from up there. Well, thats about all that I did today. Pretty fun stuff.

OMW!!!!! DA has finally posted! And your adventures were quite interesting. Is Alex's brother named Brice? There is a picture of a Brice Fries at the high school. I want to meet him some day because he is the only other person I know of that spells it with an 'I'.


One more life goal...

pretty cool, except for the bird poop. Now, have you been in St. Paul Catholic's bell tower?

Sounds like fun, Daniel. If you'd like, I'd be glad to take you up into FBC's bell tower some time.

Pigeon Poop is about the most disgusting alliteration I have happened upon, but thanks for thinking of me. :)
