Our last day in Massachusetts began somewhat eventfully when Dave whacked our side mirror on the Millers’ fence, causing the front of it as well as the mirror itself to actually come off. Dave has been paranoid for a couple of weeks that we’re going to wreck the car in some way during our trip, so hopefully this gets it out of the way.
It was a great Sunday at NPC. The praise team was right on, the sermon was great, and there was no big “send off” for us – I didn’t want anyone to make me cry *smile*. After the service, many of the wonderful folks who have been our church family for the past 3 1/2 years came up to us to wish us well.
A whole bunch of the Young Adults went out for lunch at Pizzeria Uno for one last get-together before we leave. Originally they had planned a beach day, but Hurricane Charley pretty much prevented that.
After lunch, Dave and I took a good look at the side mirror situation and decided that we might just be able to pop it back together without seeking professional help. We went to Matt & Melissa Sagendorph’s new condo, where we got to see the progress they’ve made on their renovations, and where Matt helped Dave put the car back together. I’m happy to report that the mirror is back on and the side mirror looks intact, even though we can’t move it anymore using the adjuster thingamajiggy inside the car. Oh, well. I’m just thankful we don’t have to take it to the shop in the morning instead of hitting the road.
Then we got to spend the rest of the afternoon and evening chilling with the Millers. Sam and Josh will be SO big the next time we see them!
