Today's the day!

My Internet friends start arriving today!  Cliff and I will go to the motel after noon and see who shows up.  It'll be a smallish group, eleven counting the two of us (unless we have a surprise guest or two; Susan from Texas was still thinking about attending as late as yesterday).

I've packed as much local sight-seeing into three days as possible, since it may be the only opportunity for our friends from Scotland to be in the area.  Glenda is a pastor with the Church of Scotland (click here to see her and read about her historical church). 

Although I've lived in the Kansas City area since the mid-fifties, we'll be seeing a lot of things I've never seen before, so I'm excited about that.  It's like I'm taking a vacation, but not having to travel far to do it.  I plan to stay in the motel for three nights with my friends; Cliff figures he'll probably come back home at night to tend to the livestock and the dog. 

I hope to be back to my journal Sunday evening with lots of pictures.  I appreciate all prayers and good thoughts during this time of fellowship with my friends.

What a small world! I have another journal friend who is a retired pastor in the Church of Scotland! He had to retire for health reasons. Do you read Stuart's journal? http://journals.aol.co.uk/sdrogerson/SpecimenDays/
