Andy's application to BYU is due by Dec 1. The housing options start on the 10th. Any advice about housing and meal plans? Choices are Helaman Halls, Wyview Park, and Heritage Halls. There are lots of different meal plans. Also, what about Freshman Academy?

A better picture

Don't forget a Happy Birthday to Larry too!

And Another Birthday

Dad's Mom, Elsie Gifford McGee was born on 29 Oct 1895.

Grandpa(Ross) McGee's first wife died in 1920 at age 32. Elsie married at age 26 when he was nearly 40 and had 5 kids under age 13. Fortunately for us, they raised another family as well with 6 kids including Dad.

Does anyone have . . . .

I am looking for a full, complete list of the birthdays for our family. (It's for a Christmas project.) Does anyone have that and could I get a copy?

Optical Illusion

This is pretty weird. Do you see the figure spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise? Which leg is she standing on? If you look away, then back using your peripheral vision, it may change.

I was pretty convinced this was a hoax at first, and that it was designed to switch directions at random intervals. Then Jesse came home and we saw it differently.... He was getting really mad because I kept saying I saw her on her right foot and he couldn't understand why I couldn't see that she was on her left! So I guess it really is an illusion. Pretty cool, possibly the only "moving" illusion I've seen. How do you see it? Can you make it switch at will? BTW, I highly doubt this is a valid "right-brain/left-brain" test, but it is fun.

Andy's Homework

This is me, playing piano and singing... I'm no professional, this is just for fun. And I know, I sound all nasily*spelling?* and other tonal stuff... but as i've said, it's for fun.


I'm looking out passed my window sill
I see a girl standing still
Starin' up at the deep blue sky
As if watching the clouds pass by.
I yell out, "What do you see?"
She replies, "The leaves are green, again."

It's a nice day outside
I should go out and not hide.
The little girl is beckoning,
with a smile, she says to me,
"Sir, have you seen
That the leaves are green, again?"

So I go out and look up
It truly is quite the shock.
"You are right in what you say,
it's a beautiful day.
And now I can share what I've seen.
And tell them all that the leaves are green, again."

Hi everyone! You may have already guessed from my title here, but I have been officially accepted to the Jerusalem Center!!!! I'm really excited, though I'm still not sure where the money is going to come from. I am still accepting freewill donations of every kind. Thanks to those who have contributed, no matter how small the amount, and thanks to those who have expressed desire to help even if they don't have the means to do so.
Anyway, I am working on a student loan, so I don't want anyone to fill bad if they can't help. I think I will be alright. My scholarship covers the cost of tuition, so with that help and the donations I have received, I only have 76.5% of the money left to pay.
That probably sounds like a lot, but it is way better than having 100% to pay, and I have until the end of November to make the final payment.
Anyway, I'm really excited! Here are some pictures of Jerusalem so you can see what I'm getting in to:

And another Birthday

Here are a few more old photos to help celebrate the day. Happy Birthday,
Bobby, Cameron, Bob or Robert

Future Reunions

The McGee Family reunion is scheduled for the July 4th Weekend 2008 in Pacifica CA. We're looking forward to having most of the family visit. Here are a few pictures to get you prepared for what is possible around here.

Michele saw this whale on the beach on Monday, but when she took Katie there after school, it had washed back out to sea.

The middle view is from the top of the bluff looking down to the beach.

The last view is from a restaurant in the hotel that Michele stayed at the first time she came to visit me in Pacifica. (She didn't take these pictures, but they show what is possible to see around here.)

So get your plans arranged. Let us know that you are coming and how many so we can calculate the layout of sleeping bags and airmattresses.

Larry and Michele

For Sara's BD

Hope this reminds you of Happier Times. Congratulations on your 18th!.

WHAT? Am I the birthday police?

I am so surprised that no one has sent Happy Birthday greetings to SARA! I thought for sure someone would make it to the computer before my long day would allow me to.
I'm sorry Sara but I don't have a good picture of just you :-)
Hope it was a good day! Celebrate good!
