We planned a trip to Sheridan, WY to attend our friend's celebration of his 40th anniversary as a priest with a visit to Alliance, NE to see Larry's family.
The drive to Nebraska was uneventful for us - not so for 3 travelers we observed in various single vehicle accidents. Sobering events to say the least.
With a little rain and little snow and lots of wind we made it to Alliance for a week's visit with family. We seem to bring lousy weather with us each time we visit - or at least that is what we are told.
The highlight of the trip was our brief visit in Sheridan. It was such a pleasure to be able to make it to Sheridan for this momentous event. It was so nice to see Tom Ogg - it has been a few years. What he has lost in hair Larry and I have gained in pounds and wrinkles! A lovely event, well organized with lots of nice people. We will pray that Fr. Ogg retires in 3 years as he has planned and that he gets to be less of an administrator.
