Last night Mrs. ChiO is driving my parents and me to a surprise location in the 'burbs to meet the daughters and son-in-law for supper at 7pm. We arrive at a very nice Italian restaurant, the hostess takes us, opens a door and....
SURPRISE!!!! 130 adults plus children. My sister, brother-in-law, and their two 20-something sons had flown in from Atlanta. Friends from law school, Church and, of course, family. 3 Priests. A slide presentation and music playlist designed by the younger daughter. (I learned this morning that Mrs.ChiO had tried for the Shadows of Knight, but they were otherwise engaged -- how cool would that have been?). And speeches from the daughters that had this old man in tears.
All that was missing was you guys.
