A Night on the Town . . . and On the Ground

DS1 recently celebrated his 19th birthday and received some birthday money.  He is usually very close with his money, but after a night on the town, he came home with 2 gallons of sweet tea from Chick-Fil-A.  He was so pleased with himself! He and his friends (one of whom works at this establishment) ate supper at Chick-Fil-A, then went to see the new Star Trek movie. DS had already seen the movie with mom and siblings, but was excited about seeing it again. As if this were not enough excitement, they all went to the soccer field at the College where they engaged in "Star tripping." I have never heard of this pastime, but he was so tickled  when he came in telling us all about it. Apparently, you fix your eyes on a particular star, then spin around in place about 10 times, all the while watching that same star. Then, someone else shines a flashlight in your eyes and that makes you fall down. Now, being dizzy and falling down doesn't sound particularly appealing to me, but they seemed to love it. And believe me, this is a crowd of teetotalers.

These are nice young men. They each love the Lord and serve Him with gladness in their own unique ways.I am grateful that DS1  has such good friends even if I am a bit confused about "star tripping."


  1. Happy Birthday!

    Sweet, innocent fun. May they continue to grow and serve.

  2. Grandma Linda and I laughed out loud in our motel room when I read this out loud! We should be home in Georgia on Tuesday of this week. Miss Janice

  3. Well, hope you girls had a great trip, and we will see you soon. Can't wait to hear about your time with your sister.
