Count down Assella Bust

Today is memorial day weekend. I just finished playing golf with my some Laike. He did a great job but remember this is after running and walking seven miles in the park. I am trying to shape up for the unexpected. Actually before my departure on June 2, Randy and I are planning to jog, we call it SOMSOMA in Ethiopian. Perhaps we will do a 5-7K. He will defintely make me eat his dust. We will be cheered by Ms. Toner and Ms. Caren. I will tell you a little bit about this three former Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs). They were in Assella in 1966-1968. At that time I was proably in 3rd or 4th grade. I will tell a lot more stories. We all plan to meet a day before my Assella mission. We have a lot of wishes for Assella, the schools and the Arsi zone. I was born and raised there. Our plan is to collaborate with any one and any group interested to support students and schools in the region. I think it will happen.
