Busy Busy

Wendy, one of our West Coast teammates is in town, which is really nifty. This is someone with whom I’ve worked for more than 2 years and I’m just now getting to meet. Weird! It’s odd how the (almost complete) cessation of business travel has led to a completely different work dynamic.

Still don’t know what’s going on with my Grumps, which is stressing me out. I *think* I’m heading to Charlotte this weekend to visit him, but that’s still up in the air.

Tonight we’re taking Wendy out for real NC Bar-B-Que, which might scare the crud out of her, as we’re going to Allen & Son Bar-B-Que … just about as authentic as you can get: sea green walls, checkered tablecloths, fake daisies in small glass vases and the best BBQ around, AFAIC.

    We tried to lunch at Allen & Son last Friday. Got there and found a sign in the window saying they we closed for vacation. Drat!

    However, I happened to drive by yesterday — it’s really not too far from the house — and it looked open again. I’ll have try to swing by and sample the BBQ sometime.

    (Meant to post this before you headed over there to warn you you to call, but got busy. Sigh.)

      They must be back from vacation now, as we did have dinner there last night (unsucessful though it was).

        Just got caught up on my LJ friends page and read your post. Bummer about it being unsuccessful. I still want to try it sometime now that I’ve heard about it.
