It was nice seeing some of our family today. Wayne's 68th birthday would have been yesterday so it was nice spending some time with Linda (his wife) and Glenn (his son). I set the camera on a tripod and with the timer clicking, I ran to bring some beauty to the back row.
Glenn treated us to a nice lunch at a steakhouse in town and we enjoyed sitting around the table afterward sharing some quality family time.
I took a few pictures in the backyard and we squeezed in all the time we could before they had to head back to the Raleigh area.
Linda had a surprise for me which she pulled out of the back of the car right before they left - it was an old tape that I had sent Wayne when he was in Vietnam during his years in the Navy aboard the USS Okinawa. She even brought a reel-to-reel player so I could listen to it. We listened to a few minutes of it - and it was strange to hear my voice discussing some of my college life: classes, roommate, life away from home.
