Surprise Birthday Party
After church about 30 of the Meister clan met at a bar (yes really) to meet the guide that was to take us to Rocky Glen. Not that we needed a guide, mom and dad hiked to Rocky Glen when they were engaged, then took us kids numerous times. Rocky Glen has been closed for years, the hike up to it has been blocked with no trespassing signs. Mom read an article in the newspaper about special guided tours, Rachel called and arranged for a private tour for yesterday. It was rain or shine and unfortunately it was pouring rain by the time we got out of church. Some of us older more decrepit decided not to go but mom went with a good turnout of brave souls willing to get drenched by a cold driving rain to be with her. Karin even brought Nancy. Nancy had a great time telling everyone with her huge smile, "mom made me hike in the rain, just look at my clothes!"
