How lazy is this? He has such a hard life here in China.
This is out back of our apartment. All three kids sitting and resting.
We went to dinner at a friends apartment on the southeast edge of the city. This is looking back to the north. You can see some of the low farmers housing to the left if you look closely.
The apartment where our friends live is right next to the toll gate for a busy road. Every city charges you a toll to enter or leave.
DJ and Harold get along great.
Nichole did a wonderful job preparing dinner.
DJ watched everything Harold did.
Then it was her turn.
Dead eye DJ.
She took us down one by one.
Not even her big sister was safe.
Look out DJ!
The apartment was a little smaller than ours but still nice for its age. They bought it when they got married in 1997 and in a few months they will be moving to Harbin where Nichole's husband is working.
This was just out back of the apartment. It is a local group doing organized dance marching to music.
The food was good. She cut some tomatoes for us to eat and asked if we wanted salt or sugar. I am glad she asked, because they never eat tomato with salt, only sugar. They also do not cook their rice with salt. I suggested she try it sometime.
Deb had bought me several games and we brought them with us to play. Harold and his friend wanted to learn how to play chess. It was nice to have someone to play with again.
After getting a good lead, I let them start to win a little. That was almost a mistake, because they were are both very smart. In the end they saw that I was not going to let them win.
