July Breakfast – IHOP

We were seated at a nice table on one side of the restaurant in a timely manner and drink orders taken quickly, but things went downhill from there. A failed attempt at hot chocolate and a somewhat tardy arrival of the coffee lead to two orders delivered incorrectly and one missing, made for three very late meal deliveries. But conversation was varied and lively and the meal was pleasant enough if it arrived hot, so it wasn’t a total washout. Maybe if we were a smaller group or arrived at a different time it might have been better. Much to our surprise, right outside the IHOP was a rock in honor of David Schumacher. I guess he never mentioned it because he is so humble.

Fireworks 2008

We had a nice group of eleven for the drive to the Fireworks at Fort Gordon. Attendees were Dave & Autumn Schumacher, Kurt & Karen Breitinger & Lindsey, Stacey & Cindy Timmerman & Mia, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth and Dave Winkler.

We made it on to Ft Gordon through a long line but moving quickly. We parked and made our way to stake out the ideal spot close to the beer tent and food vendors. We enjoyed everything from hamburgers to schnitzel sandwiches to a gourmet picnic feast. Brownies for dessert thanks to Cindy. The sun went down and the temperature was just about perfect for the night. The fireworks were explosive and a good time was had by all!
