these! But I can't wait
to retrieve my dishes.

in front of the Military Science building, UNL
Timing was perfect, as we arrived in Lincoln, NE just after my son, Lucas, got out of class and had a couple of hours free. Thursdays are special because it's the only day of the week that ROTC cadets wear their uniforms on campus, and Lucas was dashing in his new ABUs. He gave the grandparents a tour of the Military Science building, then walked them through campus and into town for lunch at Panera. Meanwhile, I checked on daughter, Megan, also a UNL student. She's been sick, so we did not want to expose everyone to her virus. I was able to take her to a doctor appointment while Mom and Dad got a tour of the Noyes Art Gallery, where some of my art is shown. They did get to give the granddaughter a hello from a distance before we continued our trip west.
|The 80 and 82 year old Vasey brothers|
My cousin, Nancy and her husband, Chris Henry are living in Dad's childhood home and run the Vasey farm, from whence this trip began. Chris graciously interrupted his busy harvest to give each of my parents a ride through the cornfield and introduce them to the wonders of a modern John Deere combine. After this treat, we enjoyed a great vegetable soup and cornbread prepared by Nancy, the gourmet catering cook.
What a perfect trip! We are grateful for success in our mission, for safe roads and vehicles, good weather, decent health, and family...for the foresight and courage of those who came before us, and the propitious circumstances that allowed us this opportunity. Blessings.
