We found the place from living across the street in the Union Heights apartments, 3 years ago. You might remember the name of the apartments from the nightly news, just about every week. The same apartment that Brett's foot fell through the deck one night. The reason we are so excited about the place today, we took Andy and Pam there for dinner, and they were able to experience the magic and the ambiance in person! Hope they enjoyed it as much as we do. Even if they didn't, we followed up the experience with a great trip to Josh and John's ice cream! That'll make up for anything they didn't like!
Just got off the phone with Reagan and her parents, who are driving to Texas for Thanksgiving. We are sad we are going to miss the family and festivities this year, and we'll be watching all kinds of football with you in spirit! Hope everyone has a great time, and we look forward to hearing the stories afterwards. And Mom (or Mom-in-Law, depending on who is writing this), we'll be calling you many times for cooking advice and other tips on the big day.
To completely change the subject, we have had several questions and eulogies regarding Michael's old vehicle, the Dodge Intrepid (dot com), and its seemingly untimely demise. At time of trade in, the old girl had 142,000 miles on her. Unfortunately, being a Dodge, that high number includes some light - heavy smoking (burning of oil), and a dislike for longer trips, just about anything over 60 miles at a time. After a time, the overwhelming amount of memories and love for her couldn't overcome the difficulties. For those that have asked, the final picture of the Dodge Intrepid:
Oooohhh, and we'll add pictures of the Thanksgiving feast when we are done, and the firemen have left.
Thanks for reading! Have a great Thanksgiving!
