After an exciting come from behind extra inning day game win for the Braves yesterday, we needed to sleep fast. Today Don and I went to a Gwinnett Braves (AAA farm club of the Braves) at 10:35 AM. We have never been to a professional baseball game that started at that time. Finally, we had a nice Atlanta weather day. We enjoyed a GBraves win and that makes us 3-0 on our baseball outings this week. We rode our bikes today and found out Stone Mtn Park is VERY hilly and not real conducive for this activity. We also went out to dinner at a favorite Italian restaurant in the Stone Mountain area......excellent. It is always good to go to an Italian restaurant with and Italian. Tomorrow we are headed to Lake Lanier for 3 days of fun on the lake. John VanCamp has arranged for a fabulous spot on the lake to camp. It is 5 minutes from where he keeps his boat. The weather is looking like 80 degrees Thursday and 86 on Friday and sunny both days. What great weather for this activity. Shirley and Jeanne have moved to Rome GA to start painting a Habitat house. Don and I are very proud of them for handling the "rigors" of moving 100+ miles by themselves for the first time. I knew they would be able to excel. Shirley has become a fantastic camping partner. Jeanne now knows for sure she can do it. We are proud of both of the girls. I miss Shirley for a number of reasons. One is my ability to get pictures on this blog. Enjoy the small pics.

From Rome, GA: This morning, Jeanne & I, sorted and redistributed ceramic tile, lighting and hardware items in the Clarksville Restore Warehouse. On the way back to camp in Cleveland, we stopped and took some pastoral pictures of farms and the remains of an Indian Mound. The mound was once the center of the ancient Cherokee town of Cauxule. A small hill with a gazebo in the middle of a cattle field is what remains today. We arrived in Rome, GA late afternoon, set-up and then went for a bicycle ride around the campground and nature preserve. Looking forward to painting tomorrow.
