Thursday afternoon, was line dance class. Thursday evening we went to dinner at church. After dinner we invited Jan, Rory, Barb, Ann and Gary over to the house for a drink. What fun to have them at our house.
Luckily we were all packed and ready to go the next morning.

We were picked up by Super Shuttle around 10:30 a.m. to go to the airport so we could fly to Austin, TX. Once we arrived in Austin, we got our rental car and drove to Lynne and Steve Myers house where we were spending the weekend. Lynne had dinner ready for us, since we arrived right a dinner time.

After breakfast we decided to head to Groene (Green) to check out the little shops and have lunch. The picture above was taken at the Grist Mill where we had lunch. Saturday night we had dinner at the "Salt Lick" at very popular barbecue place. We waited for an hour and half for a table. Yep! the food was worth the wait.
Sunday, March 3,
The four of us headed to church where a Paul Parsons, a friend of ours, is the interim pastor. Since Paul was preaching at the contemporary service we went to hear him preach. Then out to lunch with Lynne and Steve.
After lunch, Harris and I headed to the Embassy Inn Central, where we were staying for the Pre-retirement seminar that would be held at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary on Monday and Tuesday. Once we had checked into our hotel, we went over to the Seminary to set up for our seminar. We picked Rod up at his hotel and went to dinner at the Texas Steak house across the street from our hotel.

We headed to Austin Seminary for to finish setting up prior to our participants arriving. What a wonderful group we had. There 28 participants. This was the first time we had so many people we knew ahead of time. Lynne and Steve, and Paul Parsons were there. Plus another interim we have had in interim education. This group was a lot of fun. They laughed a lot.
Monday night Rod, Harris and I went to dinner at Papadeaux restaurant for seafood.
Tuesday, March 5
Our last day of the seminar. After our seminar we went to dinner with Lynne and Steve again. Rod had a sister who lives in the area, and he went to be with her and her husband.
Wednesday March 6,
Our flight was not until later in the afternoon so we were able to sleep in and have a leisure breakfast. After breakfast Paul Parson came over to see us at the hotel. Then we headed to the airport. The trip home was uneventful. It was really good to be back at home. I am really thankful for super shuttle. It is so nice to get picked up right outside the airport and dropped off right at home.
