adios amigos

This evening we headed to Altoona to bid farewell to our friend Steve. He's moving on to greener pastures in South Carolina. What is it with the Carolinas? This is our second friend to move there (luckily for us, the first one moved back to the area). Jake has also had two friends move to North Carolina (and he wasn't too happy about it, either).

I got a tip on a good Greek restaurant in the area, the Athenian Cafe, so we checked that out this evening. Jake got a cheeseburger with fries, but the rest of us ordered gyros with a side Greek salad. I thought the food was great. In fact, I ordered a large Greek salad to go (I needed something for my lunch tomorrow). It was so big that Brian's going to have to eat half. The prices were great and so was the food. Unfortunately we don't make many trips to Altoona so I don't know when we'll get to eat there again.

Back to the point. We're really going to miss Steve. We only get to see him a few times a year as it is, but I always look forward to talking with him. Thanks to the internets, keeping up to date should be easy. But, his presence will definitely be missed.

I'll miss you folks, too. Very much. I count meeting and getting to know the three of you as one of the highlights of my time in the area. I'm thankful that technology will let me keep in communication with you. I look forward to hearing about success in the business, the garden, the kitchen and school (Jake). In GK's words, be well, do good work, and keep in touch.
