I got to Bonnie and Mike's house on Friday afternoon and spent a pleasant evening visiting with them. Bonnie -- Wally's younger sister -- and Mike have two grown daughters, who also have two young daughters. The youngest little ones were staying over, and it was fun, if a bit high-pitched, to see them.

The most flashy car was a 1967 Star Chief Convertible in a bright red colour with white leather seats, eat your hearts out all you lovers of the rock and roll era of convertible cars.
Apparently Pontiac also built carriages ...
... had me doubting my thought process but I went to the informational meeting anyway. Within seconds I knew I had to go. God was calling me to serve in Africa. On the way home I was thinking of ways to tell Rick he needed to come too. The thought of spending approx $5400 for the two of us to go was overwhelming. Rick was 100% on board but like me nervous about the financial impact it was going to have. Our oldest daughter was starting college and we were trying to wrap ...
