Have Dominos, Will Travel

Hey, Y'all,

We went to Knoxville today and had a really fun time with Mae and Imazo. What kind of fun can four seniors have? Well, we ate salad, pizza, chocolate brownies, drank coffee, and played a couple of rounds of "chicken foot dominos".

I had prepared the pizza and had it ready to bake when we left home for Knoxville, took some salad fixin's, and Imazo had just taken the brownies out of the oven when we arrived at her house. The house was filled with the aroma of fresh-baked brownies...yum! Nothing beats the aroma of chocolate!

After I dropped Gramps and all the stuff I brought with me at Imazo's, I went to pick up Mae at her home, and we hurried back. We were soon seated with our salads in front of us, and it was really good (we were really hungry by then). Imazo had put the pizza in the oven while Mae and I were coming back to her house, and so it was soon ready to eat when our salads were gone. Imazo had made tea, and coffee, and we were really thankful to the Lord for such blessings.

After we cleared off the table, we took out the dominos, and I proceeded to teach them how to play the game, since they had no previous instruction in the game of dominos. It was a tremendous lot of fun, and I literally played the four hands until they understood the play rules, but they caught on pretty easily, and we had real fun, chiding each other, and Imazo won both hands in the game. We had our brownies and coffee then and just sat and talked for quite a while. It was great fun and we plan to do it again some time. I think I will buy a set of jumbo dominos because of Mae's and Dub's difficulties seeing the dots on the dominos that I have.

Tonight I am just going to watch a little television and then go to bed. It has been a long week for me (kind of) and I have been up late a lot of nights. Tomorrow, the pavers are coming to seal the new driveway- hopefully it will not be too expensive, but it does need to be done to finish up the job properly.

Picture of the gamers is at the top. Didn't we look like we were having fun?

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the day. More tomorrow. Love to all of you. Bye for now.

You all have more fun than anyone I know of. There's nothing like the company of family and friends! I worked in my yard again today. Too windy to burn anything, but I'm getting it all ready!
