Memories

Ellie has this on her blog, and I thought it looked fun, so I'm playing along.

So here's how it works...

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

So there you have it! Post away! Oh,and if you don't "know" me well enough to have a memory, feel free to use anything you've read here. A favorite post you've read, etc. that way everyone can play!

One thing that I admire about you is your dedication to your little branch there. It was so nice when we were living in the mission field to have people like you.

You are wonderful for Ellie.

Robert said...

Thanks, Darlene. I think most of the members of our branch are at least as good as me, if not much better. They make it so much easier to want to serve because they set a great example for me. I always feel like I need to do more. But really, thank you.

And I am glad you think I'm good for Ellie. That's what matters most to me.

I remember going to the Dells with you and Ellie and you teaching me that card game. I don't even remember it anymore, but it was fun. I also love how you love Ellie so much. I am rooting for you to go to school somewhere in the Midwest that will be closer to WI than GA.

The memory you left about me was a good one Rob! The road trip to buy the Harry Potter book at midnight was so fun! That whole reunion was so fun!
I think you are one of the nicest guys I've ever met Rob. You really listen when people talk and you I really enjoy conversations with you.
This might sound kind of weird, but I think of you whenever I eat olives! I know you really like olives. You even told me you'd choose those over most other snacks and treats. For some reason that stuck in my mind! Funny, huh?

Robert said...

Thanks, Martha. The game I suspect you're talking about is Hand and Foot, which was the first game Ellie taught me. It's a rummy/Canasta style game with two "hands." Am I right? I am thankful I love Ellie so much, too. As for the midwest, we'll see how the applications play out.

Jill, I really appreciate your comments. I can do a lot worse than being remembered for olives. They are definitely my favorite food, and I can probably justify including them in any salty/savory dish pretty easily. I have worked hard at listening because it is a skill I did not always have. My mother is such a terrible listener that I guess it mattered to me at a young age not to be like that. She's a great Mom, but that is one of the things that bugged me in childhood a lot.

lets see...
ok.
'its about 430. better get down to rockdale. they might close!'

Robert said...

Priceless, Amber. Truly, that was the way of things. Now, it is a somewhat different timing choice, but still comical.

ONE? I only get ONE??? Oh, alright. Sheesh! ;) One of my favorite memories of you is when we were first talking, and you just wanted me to be able to read the rest of the Ender books. So you sent them. It was a huge deal to me. Krista thought they were cool too.

Robert said...

I seem to recall those books made the rounds to Martha as well. They were and are great books, and you know now just how much I love to share books that I think are great. I am glad you remember that, though. If you feel inclined to share more than one, I imagine spouses are allowed, but you can just tell me in person if you prefer.
