Wrap up!

Well today was a wrap. We finished off at noon. What a LONG exhausting but informative week this was!! Just wow!!

It all started with a beautiful sunrise.

LOOK at those fall colors!!

Wendy and I were able to meet up again this afternoon and walk around the Greens outdoor mall. GREAT to walk around in the brisk air and get a coffee and visit! Love these guys!!

I passed on a Halloween party in favor of a little down time and a movie with Barbara and her daughter Shaina.

Then back to the hotel to pack. Yeah. I packed in my smaller lightweight bag. Bad choice as I bought a pair of shoes, two pair of capris and a shirt AND a purse AND some candy to take home for work folks. Whoops!! My suitcase is stuffed and I now have TWO carry on items. Sigh. Oh well all is good!!

More on TDY

The night before. Overcast and fall weather.

Headed to lunch. Don't I look uncomfortable?? I was scootching doe. So all behind could be seen AND add to this I had actually Fallen INTO the van! Yikes!

In the front is Trevor and Bernie. Next row is LtCol Wilson (Gunter), me and Barbara Buller. Next row is Phil Waugh (Wright Pat) and Shefali Gajiwala (Hill) back row is Jerry Kosey (Wright Pat) and Steve Kobayashi (Hill).

Our lunch destination. Food was good.

This is who Barbara and I feel is Phil Waughs alter ego. Really. He sounds just like him! Looks a little like him as well.

Dinner was at TJChumps and this is the shenanigans that Barbara starts.

We started the coloring page towards the other end of the table where Bernie was sitting. The art work ended up being a depiction of Bernie and Jerry. Too funny.

And with that it's an early night for us!

TDY Dayton

So I'm going on a work trip - TDY and traveled here with Barbara, Trevor and a few others from the base. Interesting trip. Barbara and I found out that we were on the same row and one seat apart - THEN found we didn't have anyone sit between us! Sweet!!!

Poor Barbara had a technical difficult with her suitcase!

Note that the handle isn't completed. Sad. Part of it would not pull back up again. Broke - broke. Big just a little broke. Poor Barbara!!

The GOOD news? The hotel is right where we need to be (one exit from our destination) and it's lovely - even if we do each have two beds!!

A funny sign we saw while out having dinners dinner picking up snacks for the room.

My new boyfriend ;) ha!
