They started their visit with a little tax-free outlet store shopping, and then we met up with them for lunch. After lunch I went back to the office for a little while, but shortly thereafter joined them and Spouse back at the house. We chatted, laughed, and caught up on many mutual friends. We were slightly envious as we heard about Ron's life after having retired (early) last year, and James' new schedule of working about 50% in preparation to retire. Before we knew it, it was time to have dinner.
We went to Fork + Flask and ordered cocktails at the bar while our table was being prepared. I had my old favorite, a cosmo.

Ron & James wanted to see the Legends show at the Blue Moon (despite me not being in it this time) so we did. They really enjoyed it, and afterward I took this photo of them with 'Etta James'.

The next morning we had breakfast at a local diner, and then they were on their way back to the DC area. It was a short visit, but a good one none-the-less.
