A note I received today from my pastor.

I laughed so hard and so long my stomach hurt. Really. I was still laughing hours after this happened yesterday.
I heard a noise outside my office. It was Ty. He was trying to get in all the glass doors, which were locked. He was definitely in a hurry. Then he looked around, and decided just to go ahead and pee right next to the building.
What he didn't know it was right under my office window. I went into Traci's office and said - "you're not going to believe this - take a look." We opened the blinds and were chuckling when all of a sudden Ty looks up, directly at me - perfect eye contact. I wish I could describe the look on his face. SHEER PANIC! He realized he was peeing outside my office window and the pastor was watching him from the window. LOL
Our eyes locked momentarily, his facial expression would have won us the grand prize on America's Funniest Videos - and then he was off like a world class sprinter! Traci and I laughed and laughed and laughed. I bet he was so scared - wondering what I was going to do. But hey - what is there to do - he's a boy and I can relate. Sometimes if I drink too much coffee and I'm heading over the pass - I have to find a tree myself.
It's just when a boy gets older, he gets more discreet and you make sure you aren't standing in front of someone's window. Just had to share one of the most memorable pastoral moments I've had - thanks to your boy. LOL
Sometimes I wish I would have started writing a book about 20 years ago when I became pastor. So many funny things have happened. Love you, Doug and your family. Thanks for being part of WFA and thanks for letting me share this funny story. Pastor Jerry

that's hilarious. But Ty does come by it naturally---I have photographic evidence of you peeing on the side of the road on our way back from Seattle. I think it was the trip you fell asleep on me---consider it retaliation. :)
