The week of August 11th found CB
blazing a trail down the back roads of Georgia and Florida in search of
adventures. The first night our base of operations was Vidalia, GA where CB
called on the three amigos: Gail, Harry and Bud. Harry, who works for the
State Department and is involved in the construction of a new U.S. Embassy
in Bangkok, was in the States for chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
The three "cousins" are standing in the garage wondering why the car would
not start. It seems that the 100+ degree summer heat got to the battery. Not
to be deterred CB provided transportation to the local Cedar River
Restaurant. And yes, CB did have his seafood! Harry, who considers
Thailand his "home", will be returning there soon and we wish him well in
CB & Harry in their "younger" years
Next CB headed to Cocoa, FL where he visited
with another high school friend, Steve Benn. Steve is the Director of the
Brevard County Historical Commission and keeps CB informed of events of a
historical nature in the county 'cause you know CB is a big history buff.
More on the visits with Ed and Steve can be found on the high school web
CB next traveled the back roads of Georgia and
headed to Brunswick, GA in search of an old classmate, Ed Moyer. CB had only
seen Ed one other time since graduation. CB and Ed relived some high school
memories over a seafood lunch courtesy of Ed. And yes, CB did get another
seafood feeding !
CB spent several days with his mother and
visited with Marcia, CB's sister, and Beth in Satellite Beach, FL. All in
all it was a wonderful adventure even though the heat was always 100+
degrees. I saw some old friends I had not seen in a while, I visited with
family members and I ate my fill (almost !) of seafood.
