So after the respective naps, RAH and I went off in search of the chapel. He was DYING to find a piano or something musical to play. When we got there, the speaker for the night was setting up his presentation. Ya, guess who was talking??? I'll get there later. Then we wandered around the assembly for a while. After getting back to the B&B, we watched a little TV, and set out for dinner. We went to a place called Pearl's that opened my senior year at Sewanee. It was freaking awesome but uber expensive. Why the poo not? So is the whole trip if you think about it.

We left just in time to make it to the Twilight Prayer service at the chapel. It was kinda nice. A little bit-o-God in Tennessee. After that was over, we stayed to hear the nightly speaker. **drum roll please** Our guest lectioner for the night was none other than Gene Sparling. Who, you ask? He's the guy who first spotted the ivory-billed woodpecker back in 2004 in Arkansas. Dang was I excited! We were there for almost 2 hours. Even RAH was rapt. I wish you all could have heard him speak as well. It was amazing.

Now I'm back in the room while the Boer is off watching Friends in the main house. I'd rather get a little shut eye before the alarm goes off at 7am so we can go hit the tennis courts before the kids wake up.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm enjoying your posts. Especially all the little tidbits about RAH. Did he tell you what the little old lady said at the reception? My 16-year-old had a great comeback that would have been fun to use: "He's not gay, he's South African!"

Speaking of the 16-year-old, she got to go to the Tipperary last night with her boyfriend's family. Then to the Nokia for a concert of celtic music. Not fair!!!
