Chatting. Chewing, And Chuckling

It was a great day.  Randy and Terry showed up around eleven o’clock.  That means that we chatted, chewed, and chuckled our way through the next five hours.  It’s great to have such wonderful friends to spend time with.  I mean, we could have gone over to Hershey to have gotten a candy bar, or we could have gone for a ride about the countryside, but we’ve been there, done that.  So it was nice to just sit and visit while the burgers and dawgs burned themselves on the grill and the fresh Pennsylvania corn steamed itself on the stove. 

It began to rain so we had to move our picnic inside, but that didn’t slow us down one bit.  We had an enjoyable meal and solved many of the country’s problems (you should be hearing a solution to the debt ceiling issue any day now).  We even received an unexpected phone call from Peggy; wish she and Mikee could have been here to have joined in on all the fun.  It was sad to say, “so long”, since it will be several months before we get together again at Rainbow Plantation.   

Today we’re heading to Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, Virginia; it’s right next door to the Bull Run (Manassas) National Battlefield and forty minutes from our daughter’s house.  “They”, whoever they are, are predicting high humidity and hot temperatures (hazy, hot, and humid) over the next several days.  Hopefully it will just give way to cooler temperatures like it has over the past couple of days. 

Once we get housekeeping reestablished in Virginia, we’ll head on over to the battlefield for a look see.  It’s been 150 years since the first battle was fought in July of 1861; the second battle was fought in August of 1862.  That’s all we’ll say about that for the time being (obviously we’ll have more in tomorrow’s blog entry).

Now it’s time to pack our bags and get ready to go, so Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - -
