Summer of 1966

Brenda and Rod at Mama's house on a visit during the summer. After finishing Rod's degree, there was a bit more time for relaxing and visiting.

On August 12, Edgar, Sue, Leland, Faye and Cathy came for the weekend. Edgar, Leland and Cathy enjoyed the pool table and ping pong. We went to the Grant Park zoo and to the Cyclorama on Saturday. We had a picnic in the park. On Sunday we took them to Stone Mountain.

One of the things we enjoyed was singing around the piano. Sherry and Denise are at the keyboard, with Brenda, Andy and Bonnie singing behind them. Len is at the bottom of the picture. August 20.

On August 26, we had dinner with Dr. James King for whom Brenda had been working as scrub nurse. Dr. King took us to the Chateau Fleur de Li, the most expensive restaurant in Atlanta. We were very grateful for his generosity!

On August 27, John and Nancy Baxley, Laddie Rollins and Norman Petty came out for dinner. Ronnie and Linda Jones came and afterward we went to their house and found a surprise Bon Voyage party with about 25 of our friends.

Ronnie and Linda Jones hosted a nice "Bon Voyage" party for us in August. We were certainly getting excited as the big adventure of a transatlantic trip got closer.

Monday, September 5: Had supper with the Dorsetts with Bill and Rosie Bowman present. We had spaghetti and made ice cream. Played "Password" afterward.
