As of Friday my life has changed. I now belong to a brotherhood shared with the likes of John Deere, my grandfather Sylvester "Butch" Bordewick, and Jennifer Gardner . . . I think. For I am now a farmer.

2. Time in London:
Sadly, I'm missing the best photo of the trip - Britain's Oldest Door. But here's a blurry one of the London Eye and a hooka bar in Soho where we met 4 different drug addicts. The best of the four said, "I'm not gonna lie. I do do drugs, and I'd sure like to sprinkle some crack in there." We gave her a pound.
3. We went to Dublin, but it was cold and rainy so if you want to see what we did just turn on MTV, watch it for a few hours, and then go to an alcohol manufacturer and buy a hat.
4. Belfast is awesome. We took a black cab tour to see all the murals outlining the conflict of the city, and we signed the peace wall. We also saw Oasis.
I'm realizing now that I didn't document that trip as well as I should have. It's probably best summarized by this last photo which is Mike in a hostel holding 4 Liters of cheep cider, some salt and vinegar crisps, and a net bag of baby bells. This could have been any night of the trip, but it really was the spirit of us in the UK.

So Derek got engaged, and despite his best efforts, did not burn down a forest in the process. A few weeks ago my big brother, Derek, asked his girlfriend, Aleks, to marry him, and what I imagine as the same tone as the Virgin Mary used with the angel Gabriel, she said yes. But unlike my visions of my own wedding - leap year, February 29, 2012 - Derek Till was romantic about it.
