|Finishing the first week of rehab. Our apartment is directly|
behind me. That is our patio seen in the background. You
will be happy to note we have since washed the car.
|Spent the night at the Great Wolf Lodge (cute girl who took our|
picture chopped off the bear's head, oh well) This place was awesome--
35 acres of indoor/outdoor waterslides and fun activities.
|Hall of Flags at Rheid's Toastmaster District Conference held|
in Concord two weekends ago. Concord is a suburb of
Charlotte. We got to see the Charlotte Motor Speedway--this
is big time NASCAR country--but have no photo evidence.
|Saturday morning we went to the Bennett Place.|
It's a Civil War historical site. They were having a
re-enactment this weekend. This was a Southern flag
lecture where we learned how the stars and bars came about.
|Musket shooting at the encampment. It looks like we are way out in the |
country but no, we are in town. Crazy amount of trees here but beautiful.
|We learn some Bennett Place history from the "locals" and find|
out how they stand wearing all that wool in the hot sun.
|Saturday morning we helped Jimmy and Mary Lou, from pulmonary|
rehab, move into their new apartment. They treated us to lunch
and then came on our Bennett Place tour.
**For those of you who missed my first foray into blogdom, here is a repost of what started it all.
May 26, 2010: Welcome blogging world...I've finally done it. I've made the leap to cyberspace to start my personal blog! After two+ hours of dinking around with the program, I turned to my computer-smart husband for help. Of course, he had things figured out in milliseconds. The design is still a work in progress but I'm having fun trying to come up with "the look." SAS are my initials and my last name means castle in German...hence the blog title. Since this all took much longer than anticipated, I will have to save all my profound thoughts for another day :) Here's to seeing the tender mercies!
(Still haven't changed the design--maybe in another 100 posts I'll get around to it. Profound posts may take even longer than that.)
