Wed. Feb. 29th 2012

Very cool today, but no snow.  We split our time this morning between office work and preparing the guest room for the Davis'   They are 4 days away from going home and since they had to be out of their apartment by tonight, they will be staying with us for the next 4 days.  Pres. & Sis. Charles, the Mowers, and Brent and I went to lunch with them to the "Three Pigs" - it was their "farewell dinner."   It was really fun and the food was good.  While we were there about 400 demonstrators walked passed - chanting and waving their signs.  Apparently they are from one of the largest steel factories in Athens.  Recently they had their pay cut drastically and, this week, they have gone from a six-day work week to and four-day work week.  Although, they were peaceful, they were NOT happy.  Poor guys!

Lots of people came to the office this afternoon  and evening.  The Assts. brought Davis' cases etc. over here and Pres. & Sis. Charles came by with their married daughters and husbands for some of Brent's banana bread - so we had a full house there for a while.  Good company though.

Here it is - the famous "Thee Pigs"  properly know as "Souvlaki Kifissia"
