Our New Friend
This is our new friend Toree. Toree is an American playing professional basketball here in Portugal. Michael met him after a game one evening and since then we've had him over for lunch and some fellowship. We've also had another basketball player, Fred come for supper, but I didn't get a picture of him.
Toree is 6' 10'' and weighs 300 lbs. I don't think these pictures show just how big he really is! The girls had a blast watching him duck every time he went through a doorway.
Things here are really good. We're getting near the end of school with the girls. Language classes are coming along. My teacher is meeting me at the fish market tomorrow and is going to teach me all about fish. How to order it, ask for it to be cleaned and how to tell them they can keep the head, cause I don't want it! Then tomorrow afternoon, after our 3 hr language class, she is going to show me how to cook it! I'll have to take pictures and share that experience with you!
