Signs from Atlanta…

…as in Georgia.



Besides these signs the “signs” around my house point to company coming. These “signs” include extra organization around this old house. There has been some extra cleaning. Don’t you just love the motivation to go over and above the norm when you have guests coming? We might enjoy some Coca Cola products and some brew…time will tell. We will just be doing it in the far Northwest of the U.S. instead of the Southeastern part where Atlanta hails!

I might be MIA the next few days as my brother Tim and my SIL Leticia are landing in Seattle from Southern California for a few days. Tim is going to install kitchen cabinets at our son and DIL’s house on Friday and Saturday. The girls might have to do some shopping and other fun things while the guys are lifting and hammering! Besides lots of hard work there will be lots of good food and catching up after the work is done.

Linking to signs, signs with Lesley!

Business Bonus!

It’s a privilege to tag along with Dear on some of his business trips. His trip to Atlanta had a priceless bonus connected to it because Katie and Andrew were able to fly the short distance from Jacksonville, North Carolina to Atlanta to spend 24 hours with us!

Our flights arrived 20 minutes apart in Atlanta on Saturday. Andrew and Katie arrived first so they met us at our gate. Since 9-11 it’s a rare opportunity to be met at the gate!

We got a taxi to our hotel and after we checked in we took a short walk to dinner at Max Lager’s.

Here’s what we were served…

Ribs for Dear

Caesar Cilantro Salad and lamb sliders for me.

Katie and Andrew split a steak with the trimmings. And for dessert we all shared this…

Photo ops on the way to Centennial Park.

We passed the World of Coca-Cola on our way and found out pretty quick that the Olympic park was shut down to the public because of a Light the Night event. Travel buses and people galore with a police presence I haven’t seen anywhere before.

We headed back to the hotel and chatted in the lobby till bedtime on Saturday. We were meeting on Sunday at 7:45 to fit in all we wanted to do before Katie and Andrew had to head back to the airport and Dear had to catch the shuttle to his business event.

Sunday was a fun packed day with lots of walking…

I’m off  in my head again about what day of the week it is. Hope all is well with everyone in blogdom!
