I left Gethsemani on Sunday evening and drove to Charleston, WVA to spend the night. I was anxious to get to Pittsburgh because Sallie and Liz were there but had to leave the next morning.
The drive through West Virginia was awesome. The mountains were grand and glorious. It was a little after 3 pm when I pulled up at the Hampton Inn on McKinght Rd.
I unpacked and got ready for dinner with the gang. Sallie and Liz picked me up at 5:30 p. m. and the entire Pittsburgh crowd gathered at Greg’s at 6. We all packed into two cars and headed to the North Shore for dinner at Steak and Shake.
Greg, Christine, Owen, Brendan, Tim, Evan, Sallie, Liz, Pauline (Christine’s mother) and I were all together. Everyone ordered a milkshake. We laughed and talked and shared food and tasted each others’s sumptuous shakes. (A King Family tradition.) We had the best time! Unfortunately, we were having so much fun no one thought to take a picture. What gift to be with my family.
I count it all joy,
