Dartmouth Weekend!!! Atlanta, GA!
Finally I am getting these pics up. I have to admit that I dont know how to do too much with this new camera. It took me about 30 minutes to find them and i cant figure out how to move the pics around so they are in chronological order. Oh well.

Weather was outstanding...arrived thursday night where Doris and I had our "usual" Don Julio Margarita. Rich was our designated driver, although Dor can man her Beemer with her eyes closed so he just had to be on-call. After a tasty meal she dropped us off at the Emory Conference Center which was party central.

Emory and the conference center are across the street from the CDC and right near lowwater park, the college president's home grounds. There are trails and ponds and wonderful hilly! places to run and walk. I logged quite a few miles there, walking to the gate with Rich and running, and then meeting him back on the road back to the conference center. One special run was with Jeff '92. Jeff is a pediatrician who is married to Deb '91. We chatted it up pretty good and managed to run 5.5 miles in about 40 minutes. Not bad for some a guy that has 2 kids, lives in flatland CT and works alot of hours. Me on the other hand can say I am fit bc i ride my bike, but i was happy to take a long nap that afternoon after the wedding. Thanks Jeff! I did finally figure out where that loop went and how we missed the turn back into the grounds.

Oh yea there was a wedding. I will get to the pics now.

Joanne and Kristy at the church
Joanne is a 92 and Kristy is 91. Joanne lives in chicago and Kristy lives in Chattanooga,. I think?
Joanne wondered why so many women are obsessed with tennis. Doris and I werent the best people to ask. I wondered HOW She couldn't be obsessed with Roger Federer! But then again i think i am a tad (ok ALOT) warped on that subject.

Me and honey at the reception...
Annemarie, Deb 91, Me, Joanne 92, Kirsty 91

Darmouth Pic!

Jeff 92, Deb 91, Kristy 91, Heidi 91, Dor 91, Scott (GO UNC!!), Me 88, Joanne 92, Tony (Doris sweet younger brother...93?) Tony and Juan are Doris' brothers. I didnt know Tony at all but wasn't the least bit surprised at how fun and genuine both he and his wife Judy are. I didnt get to see Juan as much. He and his wife Chandlee have 3 great kids but they are pretty young and i think Chandlee's mom (bless her heart!) had her hands full with them. Tony lives in Scottsdale, AZ and Juan lives in Macon, GA.

Check this out. When Doris asked if i wanted a "Mani-Pedi" I was like "what's that?"

So here you go! Not much to speak of but it was fun. They had these massage chairs that were so powerful that i nearly fell into the foot bath.


TA-DAH! Doris plans to wear these on "cold" power walks and even on the tennis court! For now they are in her trunk with a spare pair of tennis shoes (hint hint) dont want to leave those under the bed again. Tuxedo strawberries. Very cool.
Scott wants to come to MN bc the red velvet cake here has cream cheese frosting and down there i guess caterers are afraid it will melt in Atlanta's heat. Heck it wasn't that hot! velvet cake deserves CC frosting but the tuxedo berries were pretty cool.

Just another "family pic." Jeff gets along so well with the ladies that he fit right in. At that table we have quite a health care staff. 2 Radiologists, 1 Pediatrician, 1 Plastic Surgeon and 1 PT. Plus 2 lawyers. Huh, go figure:) Malpractice anyone?

Kristy, Me, Doris, Joanne, Heidi, Deb and Jeff.

What a fantastic time we had. I think honey was blown away by how all these Dartmouth folks that really didnt know each other can immediately bond and have so much fun. Gotta tell you, I know we sound arrogant, but Dartmouth is a special place.
