We got to got to church on Sunday morning with Matthew and Heather. While there we got to say hi to Karla, the massage therapist, as well as meet one of Matthew’s other brothers.
Later that day, one of Richard’s old friends from high school, Jerry Lynn, drove up from southern Missouri to visit. He hadn’t seen her for more than ten years. We got to meet her family as well, and they spend several hours catching up and reminiscing about old times in high school.
Heather and I got to enjoy a long conversation about one of our passions- homeopathic health care and how it has benefited us. Meanwhile, the guys and Bella passed out in the living room for a Sunday evening nap!
Monday afternoon was filled with work that had been put off so we could enjoy our special visits- blogging, repairs, gear maintenance, leather oiling, phone calls, etc. We expect to stay one more day for Bella. She is just about back to normal so we will give her another day to play it safe. But according to Matt, we are almost out of tornado alley, and we don’t want to be here in the spring tornado season! Besides, we have recently received clearance from the police station in Cape Gerardo to cross the Mississippi River via their bridge! Yeah!! We’ll be making a beeline for that city so we can officially be “back east!”
