This afternoon, after returning from Post we worked on next Friday's Institute class; Elder Gowans took a nap during the middle of the preparation and then finished up this evening.
At 6 pm we drove out to Leitner Lake where a couple from our ward held their wedding reception. They were married this afternoon in the South Carolina Columbia Temple and held the reception out at the lake. It was beautiful. The temperature was perfect and the scenery spectacular. When we walked out onto the deck back by the lake, Elder Gowans saw someone who he thought he recognized. So when able he walked over to meet him; he was the groom's father. As we got to talking we found out we both served together at Barksdale AFB; he was a Navigator and Radar Navigator the same as Elder Gowans. He was also a student at Navigation school while Elder Gowans was an instructor there. What a small world. We had a real nice visit together and the reception was lovely.
