Comments and observations of a retired university professor; expect at least one entry per week. This blog began before retirement, and continues into "retirement" - to document retirement activities, including commentary, and supplementing my other, more specific, blogs. This has also become our Travel Blog.
Larry and Annette arrived back from Illinois Sunday evening, on schedule. Annette and Allison went walking at Branson Landing on Monday morning. They went to the latest Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn in the middle of the day. We all went to the new Chicken restaurant late afternoon, before the crowds arrived. During the evening as we were all on our computers, and Monday Night Football was on, Nancy put candles on the cake she had made, and we had 'surprise' birthday party for Larry - and a piece of cake, of course.
Here he is plowing out the four candles.
He was successful blowing out the candles.
Annette and I were nearby, just not in the photos.
They had been to the 'J. Edgar' movie last week, so, Larry got a book on J. Edgar Hoover.
His actually birthday is few days in the future. They will be in Austin. Mom and I are not going, after all, because of my accident. We'll go back down between Christmas and New Year's!
