Time to move

Monday was Shelly’s birthday and we planted flowers to liven up their front porch, then left them to spend the evening by themselves. Yesterday we took her to the Augusta airport so she could fly back to Texas for a visit. We were glad to be available, since Rob was working. We hope she has an enjoyable, relaxing time with friends. Oh, and gets to eat her favorite breakfast burritos!

While we were away from the bus anyway, we looked up the Laurel and Hardy museum in Harlem, GA, just a few miles from Rob and Shelly’s house. While our family didn’t go to movies when I was a kid, I definitely knew who Laurel and Hardy were.

The museum is only two rooms but it is packed full of memorabilia. Oliver Norvell Hardy was born in Harlem and the city-owned museum shows their pride for the hometown star.

We even got to ride behind the duo in an open air car! Admission is free, with donations possible but not pushed. The attendant didn’t even mention that, but there was a box on the counter.

This morning it was time for us to move along, too. Back in the 1980s when we were in Tonkawa, OK our pastors were Ray and Connie Brooks. Thanks to Facebook, we found out that they live in Winder, GA, so we called and met them for lunch. I don’t think we’d seen them since 1990, but Ray and Connie really hadn’t changed much, just aged a bit like the rest of us. I’d have picked them out of a lineup!

Tonight we are sitting in Jones RV Park in Norcross, GA, not far from where granddaughter Alma will graduate tomorrow. We’re looking forward to that and to the party on Saturday!
