Even though I may not get math...
The highlight of yesterday was seeing where McKay works
as an actuary in downtown Portland.
McKenna points in the direction of where his office is.
Not the French restaurant with the scalloped ivy,
Then she calls McKay to tell him we've arrived
I think this is the first time I've actually seen a revolving door.
I asked Dennis what was the point in them besides looking good in a movie
He thought they help keep the rain out since the door is always revolving and never open?
We were greeted by the door man.
He was friendly as is everyone else we've met.
What is it about Oregonians and their friendliness?
(Well except for the worker at Sweet Tomatoes who wouldn't let me choose a table before we stood in line.)
The greenery just outside his office is incredible!
Once we got to the 9th floor I started whispering for some reason.
It was so quiet and I didn't want to disturb the math workers.
Maybe I was thinking that if I were ever doing a math problem I would need total quiet
(but it still wouldn't help.)
I understand now that poem Khalil Gabran I memorized by back in high school...
"Your children are not your children.
They come through you but not from you..."...or something like that.
Next to his cubicle is another BYU graduate.
Amazingly there are 10 BYU grads in his office.
And you'll never guess what they use this room for...
McKay along with a few other actuaries, play board games here during lunch.
It's like a little club thing they have going on.
These 2 can hardly take their eyes off their little man.
Right across from his office is this amazing waterfall
Then on our way back to the car, very near to McKay's office is this Day Care center.
It has windows all around so anyone can see in.
I count my blessings that Grant does not attend here.
(The children were in an adjoining room playing. We could see them too from the window.)
But I must say, it does look clean!
Today we have a date to see my Aunt Wanda, who is almost 90.
She lives in a retirement community in Lake Oswego
and I have not seen her in years and years.
