uncle-alan

So I get on Facebook the other day and there’s a message waiting for me from this person I don’t know whatsoever named Joseph Usabuwera. I read it and it is someone my uncle met in Kigali, Rwanda when he visited on numerous occasions. I added  him because he asked and I thought it was so sweet that he went out of his way to find me and tell me how kind my uncle is. I know the basis of what my uncle does in Africa. He went there the first time to visit the memorials of the 1994 Rwanda genocide. After being affected by that, he went back to teach art and help the destroyed villages regain a little happiness by painting murals on the sides of their buildings. He scaled Mount Kilimanjaro and had people sponsor him per foot he climbed to put towards a clean water system in this village. He continues returning and has also helped them to create a sunflower oil business and is trying to help them earn money from it. He is a huge sponsor there and I admire him greatly for it. He makes me so proud, and I can truly call him my hero. I want so badly to follow in his footsteps and help do what he does there. Now that i’m eighteen I truly want him to bring me along so I can help make a difference in these people’s lives. So many people say that they want to go to Africa to help people, but I really mean it. With all of my heart. And I have a way to do it. With my uncle. Who truly inspires me every day that I can achieve anything. I love him. And I truly hope that I can get to Rwanda, to these people, and help.

I didn’t write my journal in a long time because I’ve been very busy with my job. But now its quiet so I will write. Also because I’m bored. My mom says that I’m trouble when I’m bored. Sometimes when I’m bored I like to visit my friends’ offices. Bill doesn’t like it when I visit his office even though we’re partners and equal. Bill also doesn’t let me drive anymore. He says I’m a “hazard to civilians”. We had a driving adventure. That’s what Nina calls it. She says “Gary, tell me about your driving adventure.” then Bill makes a noise and walks away if he’s close and Nina only asks me when he’s close. I don’t think he’s very happy when I talk about it. It’s because he yelled a lot. That’s what I tell everyone. Its true. I don’t lie. He yelled at me to brake and he was very nervous I think. I’m a good driver though.
My mom didn’t want me to work anymore with Doctor Rosen and my friends. Its because at dinner she asked me how work was going and I said that its a secret and need to know. And she said she needs to know because she’s my mom and that’s true so I told her. But then she got upset. Then she wouldn’t let me go to work but I went anyway when she was busy because I knew my friends needed my help. She wanted me to work with my uncle Alan but I don’t work for him, I work for Doctor Rosen. 
I helped my friends and I got to be in charge of a mission to help an Alpha. That’s because I’m an adult and I’m very good at what I do. That’s why I got to be in charge. But then a man held a shotgun at me. They’re okay guns but I don’t like it when they’re pointed at me. I told him I’m a secret agent but then Bill came and helped me because we’re partners. He’s very good at his job too. My mom shouldn’t worry about my job because my friends look out for me and keep me safe. Like Bill. He kept me safe. And Hicks kept me safe too. He made sure I didn’t get hurt by David Burton with the bad breath.
I have good friends so my mom shouldn’t worry. 

Oh dear this is a long one sorry about this its a lot of dialogue though so its not too bad.  Whoo in-between chapters! My favorites.  Sorry the next ones will be better this is wordy and boring.

Part six of our NextGen adventures.  Here are parts one through five.

It’s easy to think that high winds and lightening strikes are the most chaotic things that the world has to offer, but that’s not true.  The truth is that Mother Nature’s storms don’t stand a chance against the storms that brew over Tracy Island on a mission.

Dad’s on his feet in a heartbeat – out the door in another.  Jeff and I are right on his heel as he marches towards the eye of the storm, Uncle Alan bringing up the rear.  Dimitri and the twins are already there, Uncle John broadcasting his hologram at the center of the room.  The whole family’s there, trying to figure out what our next move is.  “What’ve you got for us, John?” Dad says.

Coming up

This wednesday is my next running event, the Clough Taylor 10k at Donington Race Track…..ko = 7pm.    My training for this event has not been very good, mainly due to the recent passing of my father and the recent birth of my daughter (emotionally testing times).   However I have had a couple of short runs and I felt okay, which is pleasing as i’m hoping that means that i have built up a ‘base fitness’.     this 10K kick starts my traing regime for the Cheltenham Half Marathon at the end of September, this will then kick me into my full marathon training this winter.       so coming up I have 10k runs at Donington (1st July) , Wythall (12th July) and Cannock Chase (9th Aug).

Donington Race Track is a special place for me as my Uncle Alan used to bring me here to watch motor racing most saturdays during the late 80′s (I reckon we came here over 150 times), we would watch sports cars, F2, motorcycles, classics, even British Truck Racing.  To be running around the track is going to be really special for me and to be sharing this experience with my best friend Woody and in remembrance of Brian Clough just makes it extra special.

Lets not forget mind you how bloody hard it is going to be….i’ll let you know how I get on running around Melbourne Hairpin…….along Wheatcroft Straight……through Craner Curves…..sweeping around Coppice and then……….back round again!!

Your brothers love you way too much to allow you to stay up in TB5 for that long. Scott & Virgil will gang up on you and make you return to earth so you can be cool Uncle John. You might not want or be able to have your own kids but there's gonna be a whole new generation of Tracys to inspire. You can't leave being the inspiring space uncle to Alan, dear god

“Do they…?” John laughs, “They’ll have their own lives and families and I don’t think they’ll mind much about me being in space doing my job. I knew that when I volunteered for the position. And I will never regret it… or at least, I try not to. I’m not going to be up here exclusively, but I won’t stop Space Communications for the world. It’s what I love.”
