Highfalutin

Today while I've been scrubbing toilets and washing dirty clothes my dearest hubby has been getting a taste of big city life. He headed out at five this morning to catch a Northbound plane. Right now he's in a city that I never would have imagined he would visit: New York City. He is with a group of preacher-friends on a Baptist history tour and is preaching in a couple of churches along the way. Not that NYC has much to do with Baptist history; it's just the first leg of the trip. I've gotten a few updates on what he's been up to--lots of really spiritual stuff. Like eating at this famous restaurant in Greenwich Village and hanging out at this high-power place. Next thing you know he'll be walking around at the Waldorf Astoria. Not too much Baptist history there, either, but what a swanky place for some preacher boys to visit! So while hubby's out on the town tonight I'm going to go curl up in his big recliner, watch one of my 19th century English favorites, and reassure myself that he'd much rather be here watching a chick flick with me than having fun in the Big Apple with his buddies. :)

Those Baptist preachers! ;) It sounds like an interesting tour, though. I was born in Rhode Island, thanks to the US Navy, and when I was growing up and just learning Baptist history, I was so pleased to know that Roger Williams, the founder of RI, was a staunch Baptist and huge proponent of soul liberty! I hope your hubby and his friends have a great time. And enjoy your chick flicks! :)

I live only about 2 hours north of NYC and let me tell ya....we don't get there often. I actually don't care for it although it IS fun to see the famous landmarks and visit the educational museums. Too many people and too much traffic for this "upstate" girl. We joke around the capital region that we wish NYC was its own state!
If he has time maybe he could hop on the ferry to Lady Liberty....that is just great to see. Hope you enjoyed your movie nite :)

Yeah, my hubby is becoming more "cultured" too while I hold the fort at home. He gets to go to the Cheesecake Factory (Never been) and really fancy schmancy resturants...and I take the kids to chick-fil-a once a week. :-/

I'll come over and watch North and South with ya! ;-)
