Should old acquaintance be forgot?

I think not. Okay, maybe some of them. But not the old acquaintances that you wish to remember, the friendships you wish to nurture. Those need to be encouraged.

And what better way to encourage them than by planning a road trip to Kentucky to catch up with college friends and celebrate the new year. That's what Christian and Tom did, arriving yesterday to visit with Mary and John. Today, they all came out to Farm Dover, along with John's brother: Stuart, their aunt and uncle: Sherry and Barney, and Stuart's girlfriend: Maya.

We had a true Kentucky brunch, complete with cheese grits, ham biscuits – and derby pie for dessert. Afterwards we hiked the trails around the farm and then had a game or two of porch ping-pong.

It was nice to catch up with these old acquaintances. We hope to see more of them in the new year.

I forgot to take a photo until some of our guests had already left.
Here are the three MICA boys with Ed: John, Tom and Christian.
