Dede is an excellent cook and tonight she made homemade chicken noodle soup. It was delicious. We enjoyed spending the evening visiting. The guys ran over to a friend of Michael's for a visit in his man cave so we had a very nice evening relaxing and visiting.
The temperatures here in Greensboro have dropped enough that it was pretty comfortable sleeping. We were tired after our weekend and had no problem falling asleep.

I cannot believe that I failed to take a picture of us together! Too busy talking and catching up. We had such a great time and so enjoyed their hospitality. Hope we see each other again soon!, and that we have the opportunity to return the favor when they are in our neck of the woods.
(September 16 Update: We are currently in Kenards, SC, about an hour north of Columbia, SC. We will be here for 2 more days. I have lots of pictures to download to the blog from our visit to Asheville, NC and it is slow going, which is part of the reason I am so far behind. This park does have Wi-Fi so that helps as I was eating up our hotspot data pretty quick. I hope to catch up soon.)
