Unless I hear differently sometime today, we will have guests arriving tomorrow. I cannot think of a time I've been less excited about entertaining guests. These guests are on a long driving trip through parts of the US & Canada. They called a few weeks ago and said they're like to stop by for three days. I'm not hosting them as such, they have hotel reservations. They would like us to tour the area with them. Now what could be wrong with that? This is the couple we haven't seen in twenty years. Will I even know these people? We were young military couples in those days, them from Louisiana and us from Texas. After the military they went back to Louisiana and we went back to Texas. I don't know about them, but I have changed drastically in the last twenty years. Bob has not, he remains ever the same. Will they still be the couple we knew so long ago or will they also have changed? Remember, she wants to purchase a manzanita bush to take back to Louisiana in their car. They want to see the Pacific Ocean. That's the better part of a day. Bob won't go. If they've driven this far on their own perhaps they can also find the ocean. I don't think it's that easy. I think they had in mind the four of us enjoying the day. Seeing the Portland Rose Gardens was the other request they asked from us. That we can do with ease. Two weeks ago the roses were still just buds so hopefully by now they should be bloomed out in all their splendor. Bob will go to the rose gardens so that should be a very nice day, except it's forecast to rain all three days they'll be here.
