August 7th

Thursday August 7th, 1969
Nairobi, Kenya
This morning when we got up it was raining and rained most of the day.  The Allisons were due to arrive today but were not on the plane.  We went ahead and had the tea at Beulah’s house anyway.  This afternoon we took the boys to the movie, “Where Eagles Dare”.  Tonight we had station meeting at Syd’s house.  Dr. Dubose from America was the speaker.  He is a professor at Golden Gate Seminary in California.  We got another letter from Mama today addressed to 4228.

Sometimes the guest of honor just cannot make an appearance.  Mom and Dad and we kids did not let it dampen our party spirit.  We just had the party without them.  We all had a great time of course except the Allisons who were probably laid over in some no name European airport.

“Where Eagles Dare” was and still is one of my favorite all time movies.  You cannot go far wrong with Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton in starring roles.
