This was a great weekend. I didn’t have to work, so I actually had a two day weekend. What can make it better than that? A visit from our friends in Ohio, that’s what. Doug and Pam have been friends for over 25 years. Doug and I worked together and we attended First Baptist Church. Doug has a beautiful custom Harley Davidson so we’ve ridden together too. He called a week or so ago to let us know they would be in town, and see if we would be available. We were all excited about the possibility of getting together.
Mellow Mushroom Pizza in Franklin was our lunch stop
Pam has family in Gallatin, and they had a reunion this week. We had the pleasure of meeting her two brothers and sister. We went to lunch as a group and then just walked around Franklin enjoying the many shops and each others company.
Doug asked if there was anything from “home” that we missed? I told him that the cheese we’ve found here is not good at all. He asked what our favorite was and then brought us a 5 pound wheel of Guggisberg Baby Swiss! I’m telling you good friends, and good food make for some great times. We are blessed to have friends like this. Friends that ask about each of our children by name. How they are doing? Where are they living? Friendships like this are built over decades and will never be replaced.
We have many friends here in Nashville too, friendships that are just a few years old, but still great friends! Later in the evening we went to Sherwood’s to celebrate Laurie turning 50. What a great evening that was. Great food, fun gag gifts and cards, cake and a bonfire. Yes, it was a great way to spend a Saturday off!
