Dinner with Friends

We met some friends yesterday for dinner. We were to meet them at Fork Union (not a place I had ever heard of.) On our drive we went through some very small towns, some that made us sad due to the fact that the economy there has forced many stores to shut down and many to move away. We also had many laughs, such as in Dillwyn, where we saw a place called "Dunkum Funeral Home." This sent us into a fit of laughter and we had to stop to take a picture.

Good Friends

When we arrived in Fork Union we drove a little ways to "Dogwood Resturant" a family style resturant. Luckily it was not so busy that we couldn't spend a couple hours catching up on our old friends. All our children have grown up together, their son is just about a year older then David so they kept each other entertained. Their poor daughter had to put up with the boys playing and running around.

We hope that they, along with some of our other friends will be able to come camping near us this summer. We even have friends who have had a baby since we left and we still haven't seen him yet!

Oh, my, I saw this on your husband's blog, but didn't catch the name. No wonder he made a joke about it -- I didn't get it, but now I do. ;-)
