- The first day of the conference was wonderful. The speakers were great and we spent a lot of the day hearing some of the wonderful Christian ladies I have heard on the radio: Janet Parshall and Kay Arthur. The other speakers are ones that I have never heard of but were great, save one, who was too loud and we politely ducked out for a break during her rousing lesson. (We could hear her lesson on the speakers outside in the foyer so we didn't miss anything but the loudness of it.)
Let me give you a run down of the Idiot things that happened today:
1. we didn't judge our travel time well enough and were late
2. we had to park in the highest level of the parking garage
3. there were no "edge" seats in the place and we had to crawl over people to sit down.
4. we both forgot to pack our Bibles and gladly bought ourselves new ones in the book store. :o)
5. both meals we had today were served by the two slowest waitresses in the nation, but we were nice and tipped them anyway. (our tip was, "Don't eat yellow snow.")
6. we, along with 20 other women took over the men's restroom when the line to the ladies was too long.
7. when we left to come back home we were almost run off the road by a crazy driver passing us on the RIGHT hand side of the road, scaring us half to death.
8. the key to our room was deactivated when we got back from the last speaker 9. barnes and nobel closed and we didn't get through smelling the books. (heehee!)
I think these are all a result of the "gobhole phenomenon".
Truthfully, we are having a good time and enjoying the teaching we are hearing and just looking foward to hearing from God.
Here are some pictures to look at:
here is Susie at her favorite purveyor of coffee beverages: Starbucks. It was in the swanky hotel where we had a $9.00 club sandwich.
We had a much better supper at Cracker Barrel, as you can see it was teeth pickin'good. I just love those rockers on the front porch. It was here she tasted her first fried okra. We had fun shopping in the store for the kids. Didja know they will ship stuff home for you? Cool huh? That way you don't have to lug it home.
