A Busy Saturday

Hey, Y'all, When I got up this morning, I was playing facebook's Farmville, and realized that I needed to hurry and have breakfast because there were things to get done today. I had laid out a bunch of Dub's collections on a couple of tables in the garage and one in my workroom, and was checking them over when I noticed that I didn't have the pocketknife that he had carried for most of the time that I was married to him. I thought, "Oh, no! Have I lost it?" You should have seen me looking for it, through boxes large and small." Well, no, actually you shouldn't have because I was still in my gown flapping around from one room to another. It wouldn't have been a pretty sight to see. Ha.

Well, I finally looked in the last place where he kept it, and there it was. He kept it stored in the base of a ceramic duck that I made for him in the late 1970's. I had just wrapped it up to pack it for the move, and then when I unwrapped it, I set it like it was with all the contents up on a mantel shelf in the living room. I had to cry with relief when I found it, because I was so sure that it was gone.

Today is the birthday of Carol's husband, Daryl, and also is my son-in-law. We will be celebrating his birthday, their son's birthday (Daniel), and their granddaughter's birthday (Alyssa). What a wonderful birthday gift I am sure that Daryl considered Daniel to be! Happy birthday, Daryl! We will be celebrating all those birthday's on Tuesday here at my new home. I look forward to having a house full of family. There will be 18 plus me. Wow! How terrific will that be! Carol will be making pizza and we'll have salads and cake and ice cream!

We went to a wedding reception this noon and afternoon at the church for Julia's sister, Laurel, and her new husband, Dan. They had been married a couple of weeks ago in California, and came back here for a short time so that they could be celebrated by the many friends they have here, since Laurel grew up here. It was a lovely sit down luncheon and they had a video of the wedding ceremony and reception out there. It was a lot of fun, and I guess there must have been around 80 people in attendance.

I still have pictures to hang, and other stuff to do this afternoon, so I had better get with it. An update on daughter, Teresa, includes information that she did well on the surgery and is doing okay with the chemo, although she had an allergic reaction to the chemo drugs and had to have a shot of Benedryl to alleviate the itching. Bless her heart. Please continue in your prayers on her behalf. She and all the family appreciate your prayerful supplications.

That's about it for today. Supper and work calling out my name. Ha. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends. Bye for now. More later.
