Hello to all..
As I sit here in my best friend's house preparing for my brother-in-law's internment tomorrow, I'm really missing my OAEA family.
I KNOW that all of you that are in Cinci or heading there will have a fantastic time with colleagues, but I'm sad to miss this face to face time with you all. I know that I am with you in spirit and hope to join the Fellows in May at our annual meeting. I thought about submitting this to the blog (thank you Susan for creating/monitoring it) but this 'old timer' couldn't figure out how to add a post for the blog, so I'm sending this along.
Here are a few pics of our new 'heaven' in southwest Kentucky---if any of you are ever in our area (or are passing through), call, email, and stop through! We'd love to have you, and we have plenty of room! We have an awesome view from our back patio that makes us feel like we're in the country/mountains but are just 1/4 mile from the town square (population 4500) and actually in town! The fall color change is absolutely beautiful down here right now, and we are enjoying a quieter simpler life away from the hubbub of a busy big city with constant traffic and sirens.
So have a GREAT conference this year! Enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship with colleagues and friends, and know that I'm thinking of all of you and the fun you're having! And please someone post pics of the jackets in memory of our dear friend Randy...
I'm missing my OAEA family!
