This past weekend Gary and I travelled to Albany, GA to spend time with our Sower friends Bill and Dolly. Bill is retired Air Force, and thus can stay at visiting officer quarters in military bases all around the country. They were working at Faith Christian School in Vienna, GA – our very first project (back in October 2004). We picked them up (and were able to say hello to our friends at Faith), and then headed to Albany. The weather was beginning to spiral downward, and by the time we were eating dinner in Albany, the rain had begun. But you know what – instead of spending Saturday jaunting about town, checking out the sights and maybe tramping through flora hunting geocaches, we all slept late, ate a big yummy breakfast, took a post breakfast nap (well, I watched a movie, but there was a lot of nap taking going on), took a quick drive downtown where we did a little shopping and then picked up some easy food for dinner (gotta love those rotisserie chickens), headed back to our room and then took in another movie. I’ve never really been on a military base – they are pretty impressive. Our rooms were lovely, the amenities great, and the movie was only $2.50! So in a way, the rainy, stay in our little cocoon of a room weekend was just what the doctor ordered. Thank you, Bill and Dolly, for including us in your little get-away! Here we are in our little hide-away:
It was a much needed time away for both of us – but especially for Gary.
Back here at TC the 4+ inches of rain was a little more of a problem. It was a parent’s weekend, and most of the boys were not able to leave campus. I understand there were a lot of board games going on!
Gary was taking pictures with my newly repaired camera (yea!! it was under warranty), and caught me with my newest computer obsession – on-line Scrabble. I’m still losing badly, but I will get better, won’t I?
