I can't wait to see all the pictures he took, although downloading pictures is probably the last thing on his list right now. He hasn't even unpacked. Roy did have an eventful dental horror of having a crown come off.
On Wednesday evening Peggy and I did a M&G thing for a Small Methodist Churches dinner. The Galveston Island Convention Center was teaming with Methodists from all over the state of Texas. We did fine and knew our lines well, always a wonderful surprise for us, but the conditions were not the best. The microphones weren't working and dinner was being served while we did our thing. Really, when eating dinner, you don't want a speaker or singer or performance going on...you'd rather talk with your friends. Anyway, we had a good time and personally now I feel like summer has begun. With learning or rather relearning the script hanging over me, I felt guilty if I wasn't thinking about or going over lines when I wasn't busy. My favorite part of doing M&G, the moment it is over. While we were wandering the halls in our costumes, I got to have a quick visit with a friend from long ago...we met in jr high and kept up with each other through college. He is a Methodist pastor and now lives in East Texas so that he and his wife are closer to their children in Dallas and Waco, but probably they love the fact they are closer to their grandchildren. We had a fun quick visit, he had another meeting to attend and well, we had to share how to do penurious ministry with the small Methodist churches.
Looking forward to the weekend. Our neighborhood get together is tomorrow evening at the park in our neighborhood. We are to bring a dish. Of course I ordered cookies from Memorial Bakery.
On a totally different wave length, I love the book we are studying this summer at a neighborhood Bible study about Christian history. Well, now I know where the Apostle's Creed came from and a few other lovely tidbits.
