I told Ed if he needed me to catch a ride home after church I could do that. He said he'd rather go home and get the bigger car during Sunday School, which he did. He also left after church without me. I thought the bigger car meant there was room for everyone. He thought my visiting teaching meant after church meant I'd catch a ride. Fortunately, Mary bailed me out when I realized I was stranded! It just made me realize how imperfect the English language is to communicate our real thoughts and intentions!

In the evening we celebrated by taking her out to CJ's to eat some Maryland Blue crabs! They're not only delicious, but they provide plenty of opportunity to talk and catch up on Amanda's life while we're wacking and cracking.

Ed and I got a lot of work done around the house yesterday, but still had time for a walk with Coda on the fire road. The relatively cool temperature made it a pleasant activity. I was sad that my cell phone and Garmin watch are still disparate on the particular route despite being so close on the Northen Central Railway path. But it was nice that I had my phone with me to take this nice family picture at the swimming hole.

I do know that this picture was taken in 1996, and that while I'm sentimental about my old friends, not so much about the bike. I expect to have many new happy memories on my sleek new bike, as well!
By the way, I tracked our progress on both my cell phone (MapMyWalk) and my Garmin wrist watch. They came out within .02 miles of one another. MapMyWalk: 8.43 miles, and Garmin Connect: 8.41. Ed's new bike odometer (thank you, Crystal) also came out with 8.41 miles. You can check our trip out at http://www.mapmywalk.com/workout/615150049 for cell phone, or http://connect.garmin.com/dashboard?cid=1553088 for the wrist GPS.

I wonder if they will miss their Maryland trees as much as they will love their new Colorado mountains. It might be a toss up...

Walmart only had one set of candles--ones with colored flames. They were actually kind of cool and gave sort of a mystery to the cake (lemon cake with blueberry filling and chocolate icing).
Butch also gave the ladies a private tour of his military museum in the basement. They were impressed!
The book told an interesting story, although it had so many people in it that it was hard to remember who was who. For a full review, check out our book club blog at http://bookitsisters.com/horse-soldiers/.
Our flight was uneventful. I watched 3 movies: Saving Mr. Banks, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and The Book Thief. It was a good way to catch up on some movies we've missed over the past year!
