We had to be at Menno by 9 AM this morning for the Annual Meeting. That made for an early up in order to be out of the house by 8. It was not easy.
Fortunately, Head Deacon Dennis runs a taut meeting. Without a pastor, even the budget discussion was short. We were done shortly after 10:30.
We made arrangements to have lunch with Dennis and Kay at Michael's Bistro in Moses Lake. We were there around 11:30, so we were able to be served quickly as it was pretty empty. That didn't last long. By the time we finished, the place was packed. The food was really good. Forry had a Reuben, I had a steak salad, Dennis had a burger and Kay had a sandwich, soup and salad trio.
We made a quick stop at Safeway to gas up and get a box of coffee for our Keurig. Once again, the store was packed. It doesn't seem to matter when you go there, it is always busy.
Brother Pat called me from Yuma where he is overseeing the digging of carrot roots that will be transported to the Columbia Basin and replanted in the spring to produce carrot seed. Pat had to give me a bad time about having to wear a sweatshirt yesterday because it was windy... I told him that it was too bad he missed the snow here!
