19/November/2016 - Church, Part 1

I don't know if I ever told you that, before marrying Sweetie, Grump had set foot inside a church maybe 5 or 6 times in his entire adult life.  Well, now he is making up for lost time!  Sweetie is a Seventh Day Adventist, which means that her church meets on the Sabbath.  (Saturday, the last day of the week.)  She and Grump also attend a Filipino church in south Macon, which meets on Sunday morning.

As it turns out, Sweetie had spoken to the SDA pastor earlier in the week, and committed to attending worship service on Saturday.  This was IN ADDITION TO committing to the Filipino church pastor to attend worship service on that church on Sunday.  So this weekend Old Grump was going to attend worship services twice!

Now we haven't been to an SDA church service in quite some time, so imagine our, (okay ..... maybe just Grump's), shock when the SDA worship service went on, and on, and on, and on, and on .......  For 2.5 hours it continued, and was still going strong when Grump finally forced a reluctant Sweetie to get up and leave, because Dodong and Kuya were getting restless.

Back home we ate some lunch, very briefly rested, then got ready for Uncle Mac's 60th birthday party.

Uncle Mac's party was held at a place called "Twang", right next to the old Payne City Mill.

Twang has an interesting decor inside:

Weird vents, huh?

One of Old Grump's relative, no doubt

Kuya got to play with his friend, Mr. B. .................

............ while Dodong got to closely inspect the decor.
