Papa and kids 7-26-09

Papa with Zach and Ann, two nice kids

I have no recollection of what happened 57 years ago today, but I will long enjoy the memories of this day, 57 years later.

Sarah, Zach, and I drove to Baton Rouge to go to church with Ann, eat oysters at Acme, take Ann grocery shopping (board for the college student), and then have birthday cake that Ann made with her own little hands just for her Papa.

We enjoyed worship at The Chapel on the campus–they’ve got a pretty “crunk” P&W band, and the folks were warm and pleasant.  We’re happy Ann’s making connections there.

Aside from a GPS glitch that complicated the commute from the Chapel to the restaurant, everything went smoothly.

The po’ boys at Acme squared up nicely in comparison with the sandwiches we had at the Covington location.  No one was disappointed with the lunch.

Even the grocery shopping was fun.  Only regrets: Papa’s other girls, Autumn and Payton, were still in

Georgia, so he misses them.  They’re coming back tomorrow.  Autumn called  this afternoon to wish me happy birthday and the promise of a “make-up” party with her and Payton later in the week.  That sounds like a plan to me!
