As if we needed to be reminded, the Days Until Entering the Mission Training Center counter has ticked down to 30. We're visiting kids and siblings, and are still trying to learn our future responsibilities. We took the train from Seattle down to Portland yesterday, and I have to admit it beat driving or even flying.
I kept waiting for something exciting to happen.
But, everything went really smoothly, we arrived having not had to remove our shoes once. I missed the peanuts and Sprite served by a harried flight attendant trying to maintain her balance in a narrow aisle.
It has been a joyful reunion with Laura and Ben, committed Portlanders that they are.
We hope that all your trips in whatever conveyance go smoothly also.
Dave & Paula
