Lunch with Jeremy and Valerie

Up at 8:30 this morning. After breakfast John was off to Lowe’s to get additional hardware to mount the satellite dish.

Around 10:30 we headed off to meet our friends Jeremy and Valerie for lunch. Jeremy and Valerie used to live in Mississippi. Jeremy worked for Madison Fire Department and Valerie worked for the ambulance service. They moved to Florida years ago and we lost contact with them but with the help of facebook we were able to reconnect with them. We ate lunch at a place called Pei Wei. If you have ever eaten at P. F. Chang’s and like it, you would like Pei Wei. During lunch we caught up on all the news old and current. After lunch Jeremy drove us over to the new 16,000 square foot fire station for a tour. The materials used in building this fire station are in keeping with “green building” for a better environment. Thank you Jeremy and Valerie for a nice lunch and for the fire station tour.

Tonight John and I sat outside and waited for the space shuttle to appear in the sky during its orbit. We were finally able to see it as it passed by.

Remember to laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.


  1. That's a great view when you see the shuttle go by. That's great seeing it take off then be in orbit. Have a great time. I can't wait till we meet up again.

  2. You know I witnessed the shuttle exploding years ago as it passed over our place in east Texas. I will never forget that one. We are enjoying your adventure.

  3. Isn't it great to reconnect with old of the many perks of this lifestyle. :)

    Awesome you got to see the shuttle in orbit.

    Have fun!!
    Mike & Gerri

  4. We love Pei of our favorite places.

    We saw the shuttle landed here a couple of years ago on it's way back to Florida. It was a pretty awesome sight. I am so glad you got see it take off.

    Have fun...we are loving keeping up with you along the highways.
