We left Daddy's house this morning (not too early) to drive south to visit with our friends from California who have relocated. They've been here a couple of years already, and they love it, and I'm really happy for them. Their home is beautiful, and you can really see the work they've done to make it their own. They managed to retire from the film industry, move across the country, and buy their first house ever. We've missed them in the time they've been gone, and in the time we've been in North Carolina, and we'll miss them some more when we get back home to California.
But today was a pleasant day, marred only by my own self-inflicted "guilt" over letting the interior of the car receive a second God-provided cleansing in as many days. You know that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." I felt a total fool today. I grew up in Florida! I know how the rain comes and then goes! You don't - you just don't - leave the windows open and then drive away in a different vehicle, not even for ice cream in the pretty-close "downtown" area of your location, and expect it to not rain.
So other than that little bit of silliness, we spent some great time in stuffing food into our faces, looking at pics of family on computers, admiring the handiwork around the house, and watching a coupla Netflix options. (Grand Budapest Hotel and Monuments Men - enjoyed them both).
Everyone else has gone to bed, and I'll be heading that way soon enough, but I didn't want to leave y'all hangin'. Daddy's got the cats under "control" back in his casa, and we're having a lovely visit here. Tomorrow, swimming and more stuffing of faces!
