I didn't feel good on Sunday so stayed home from church. Gerry went to hear a group from a new church plant located in the south area. It is an Africian Church of the Nazarene. The people of the church are from Africia, they all spoke with an accent and wore their native dress which Gerry said was very colorful. The ladies wore a head piece that was also very colorful cloth.
After he got home we went up to the Elephant Bar Restaurant for lunch. This is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. Their food is very good and we especially like it because being "old folks" we get a 20% discount on our meals. :) The last time we were there was before Christmas when Andy, Susan and Jared Lyons came to visit a school friend of Susan's. Susan is Stephen's sister. Stephen is our son-in-law married to daughter Denise. Andy, Susan and Jared live in Canal Fulton, OH.
Andy had ordered the Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya and said it was very good. Gerry decided to try it. He liked it too. It's pretty spicey, not something I would want. I had the Crispy Teriyaki Chicken. I couldn't eat it all so brought left overs home.
After leaving there, we drove over to the Whole Foods store in Sacramento. While we were there, we saw Leon and Cheryl Skinner. Pastor Skinner pastors the Arden Church of the Nazarene in Sacramento. They are a neat couple and we hadn't seen them in a while. We had a nice chat with them. Pastor Skinner runs marathons with their daughter and also cycles.
We came home after leaving there. It was a rainy day. I spent the evening ripping all the CD's we bought at the Southern Gospel concert on my computer and then downloaded them to my Mp3 player. I have over 2700 songs on there now, that should give us several hours of music while driving on our trip in May.
