Rest of Today

Hi, Y'all,
Just a few things to add to today's posting. I had a nice lunch at Burger King (whopper jr. and fries), then a really good supper at Bob Evans. If you have never tried their Cranberry, Pecan, Chicken salad with bleu cheese and some kind of sweet dressing, with salad greens, try it sometime. It was really good and filling. I stopped at the service station on the way back and paid $3.99 a gallon for gas. Not too bad, considering what I learned was the price in East TN. nearly 5.00 a gallon.

I was checking Gramps memory this afternoon and asked him what my maiden name was, he could not tell me until I told him to think of my brother, Hugh's, last name. He couldn't tell me what my last name was before we got married, even though we knew each other for 10 years before we got married.

When I got back from supper, he asked me if I had just been to New Orleans to pick up a gift for our new great grandchild, and I said, "No, that is the last place I would go right now, other than to Houston, Texas because of the storms". Then I told him where I had been and what I had been doing.

He was sitting on the bed getting ready to go to bed when I got back from supper. So I helped him finish getting ready, showed him the call button for help and asked him what he was going to do, if he needed help during the night. He said, "call you" and I said, "correct, and If I don't wake up, use the call button for help from the nurses."

We have had some really nice calls from people at home, and really appreciate them. Our friend, David, from New Market, and our friend, Karen, from Jefferson City, and our friend, Judy, and our friend, Allie, our daughter, Carol, our daughter, Teresa, and our neice, Donna. We very much appreciate all the calls we get. Also our friend, Marian, has called us. It helps us feel not so very far away when we hear from friends and relatives (who are also friends).Thank you all so very much.

Well, I need to get back down to the man who is probably on his way to dreamland, and will probably call for my help about the time I get onboard the train to dreamland. BTW, In my dreams last night I was back in the library, shelving books getting ready for the new school year. I will never escape my work in my dreams until I dream no more. Ah, well, it is quite pleasant waking up and knowing it was just a dream. ha.

Love to all of you. Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the night. Bye for now.

Hi Grammy, Glad to hear you are still coping and had some good food. We are getting 35 to 45 mile winds here today and rain is forcast for tonight. Guess it is the remnants of Ike. We sure need the rain but I feel so sorry for those poor people in Texas. Hope things continue to improve and you can leave there soon. Love, Judy
