More about the reunion on a later posting.
We left Pittsburgh on Sunday and headed to North Carolina. Drove 6 hours through driving rain in Virginia. At times we couldn't even see the road in front of us. Today, we toured Pinehurst, a beautiful little town, and the golfcourse. Stopped at a farmer's market where we got fabulously juicy, local peaches, blueberries, tomatoes and green beans. Lunch on the patio of a little Greek restaurant ended with the waitress having an asthma attack and us ministering to her ... that amounted to Ed telling her to sit down and take deep breaths in through her nose and out through her mouth. We alerted a local real estate employee to the fact that the woman was alone in the restaurant for another hour and went on our way after she insisted she was fine.
A loaf of bread from the local market and a salad will accompany steaks on the grill at the home of our good friends tonight. Golf tomorrow on one of the Pinehurst golf courses. Ed bought a Payne Stewart hat today at the Pinehurst Pro Shop, but, somehow, I don't think that's going to help my game. Life is warm here ... houses are beautiful ... retirement is good.
