obla-di-obla-da Life Goes On!

The year was 2008, month of January, a cold, chilling Thursday morning. Franklin Fox, 6'1'' 200 pounds snoozed through his first hour class. He would later wake at around 8 a.m. Quickly he put on his clothes and drove to make his 2nd hour. For he could never miss a physical class of this kind, it was his weight training class with Mr.Bodnar. (the ex-navy seal who would rip off the finger nails of any boy who would even talk of missing his, "experience"). Ze "wurk out" vith Herr. Bodnar vent vell and the proceeding classes were fine as well. Then came 8th hour, with the greeney new teacher, Mr. Hockaday. Well, "Foxy" as he his called on the street did not attend this hour. He went to battle of the bands practice with his good friends to not only find that they had other plans.

So.....he drove home to get his elegant, fine lined linen, intertwined stranded cotton, dark purple Junior Varsity practice jersey. Makes it to practice on time and is in the locker room talking with all the other players, cracking jokes, laughing and all. Then.......a sudden feeling of extreme power and intimidation quickly travels through the locker room. The players become quiet, not even Marcus Avery is saying stupid things. The players and basketball staff alike know this man as Señor Herron...(roll the "r"s it adds to the effect). A spanish teacher "slash" varsity basketball coach "slash" machine that not even MJ can handle. He has all the players line up on the base line. He starts out by stating this player had perfect attendance the first quarter. This player missed 2 classes on decemeber 5th. This player missed this day on bla blah...then the big one. This player missed the whole day on Friday and still played in the game at Davis. Then he yells Andrew Fox pointing his mighty pointer finger at this player. So Foxy says yes sir and trots off the court surprisely not embarrased.

(real story time)

Was kicked off for too much absences on the team. I didnt take JV seriously with the school. I did however take playing seriously, I was one of the hardest working players on the whole squad. Varsity and JV. But I needed to be taught this lesson on school sports at Pasco. Because if not this sport then it might of been soccer or football. So going back to the title, "Life Goes On" (a beatles song) and I am going to go to my classes and get ready for soccer. After battle of bands Im going to lift everyday after school.

hahahahaha now we can laugh.....hahahaahahahahahahhahahahahahaha

You've Got to check this video out, its one of the songs were performing for BotB. Its gonna be sweet if we get it right.

Had to Post it!

So me and Tyler decided to go to Panda Express tonight and get some food. Well it was about 9:30 and they were closing down. So all the food that was there would be thrown away. They give us 4-5 to go boxes a $30 value for just 19.99! But seriously though it was only $12. That orange chicken and fried rice was dang good. Alright gotta go to bed...

Happy Is a Yuppie Word

I've been listening to that song a lot lately by Switchfoot. Strange lyrics but tis good...


Tyler Nelson has returned from his long trip to Utah and some other states. Sucks I never got to hang out with him during winter break.

Martin Has left to BYU-I-do. He will be missed. Martin if any trouble comes your way, remember "RUN TO THE HILLS!" ;)

Got in trouble for missing basketball practice last week, so I couldn't play in the game on friday but I played alot saturday. We won against wenatchee.

Lauren has a myspace page for her songs from her new album.

Battle of the Bands is coming up. We've been practicing quite a bit these past weeks. It should be funny.

The trooper is broken down. Seems there was a leak in the radiator hose something or another (?). So all of the radiator fluid leaked out and it overheated, now it wont start.

A new sport has been created, Mexican snowboarding! We tow a snowboard behind the car in the sand dunes at Rd. 100. Can be intensely fun. We went last week with Martin, Mckenzie, Jarred, Andrew and Thomas Clark.

Heres another good Switchfoot song.

ich möchte euch ein gesundes und erfolgreiches Jahr 2008! Wishing you a healthy and successful year.
