Last night we had a great time visiting with Paige, Art and Caroline Banks in Macon. Paige is a puppy raiser for GDF and currently is raising Saxx, a cute little poodle. Saxx spends the days at the local prison where the inmates assist with the training, while Paige teaches math to sixth graders at the elementary school. Art is also a teacher and Caroline is a college student studying international business.
We met at Margaritas Mexican Restaurant for dinner. After dinner we planned to attend a play in which our mutual friend, Evan, was performing. As you may recall we met Evan at the top of Rainey Pass in Washington State while we were both biking this area on our cross country journey. As a former student at Mercer College he has returned to act in this comedy written by Steve Martin.
Evan has great credentials, especially the part about biking across the country.
The play was really fun and well done by all the actors. You could just hear Steve Martin’s voice in some of the one line puns. Afterwards we had a chance to meet up with Evan. Yes, that is his real hair.
Everyone went to the play, even Saxx and Quincy. After a few nervous moments when the actors were shouting, both dogs settled down to a good sleep for the 1 1/2 hour play. It was a fun evening and great to see Paige and her family again and to see Evan in an acting role. Great job.
