Did you guess?
Several years ago, while teaching in Ohio, my principal said, "Save $2 a day and in a couple years, you could afford to visit the Greenbrier."
So, when a friend calls at 10:30 pm on a Wednesday, inviting you to the Greenbrier because they got a good deal what do you do?  Pack a bag and go!
Everyone there treated us like royalty, not three poor schoolteachers.
Thursday evening, we explored.
The swimming pool, with amazing locker room.
Even the hallways are beautiful!
My dinner!  Chicken salad from Draper's restaurant.
Lesson learned: Take dressier clothes.  Nobody made me feel bad, but I'd have felt more comfortable.
After enjoying some time in the casino, we got on cozy, cuddly robes, and went to sleep.
Just wait 'til you hear about Friday!

I had to go to the website to see where it's located. You're right, the hallways were gorgeous and your dinner looked delectable. Even better, being there with three teaching buddies!

Oooh, how neat. Did you feel like a celebrity? I've been to some nice places, but nothing like that.
