Social Butterflies


That is what we felt like this week end.  We went to Herb and Willie’s on Saturday evening and played dominoes for the evening.  We only stopped long enough to eat a bite, and then we were right back at it.  I think all of our butts were numb by the time we got through.  We had a blast though, and we are supposed to go to Leitchfield, Kentucky with them tomorrow.  There is a big yard sale type thing down there every Wednesday morning, and there are a couple of small flea markets to look around in too.

Sunday we spent the day and evening at my daughter Shannon’s house.  All the grandkids and my son and his family were all there.  We had a great cook-out and then played games until late in the evening.  My grand daughter's birthday is tomorrow, but her Mom and Dad are throwing her a sweet sixteen party on the following Saturday at her Aunt Shannon’s house.  She wants to be able to swim with her friends, and Aunt Shannon has a pool.  It is up to me to get all the girls there for the party.  This will be lots of fun, but kids really wear me out lately.  Especially the ones that are old enough to talk back.

I saw another friend at Wal-Mart this morning.  Marilyn has been a friend for 50 years.  She has moved to Kentucky, but was in Tell City doing some shopping.  She has had some health issues for the last few days.  She got ready for bed a few nights ago, sat down on the bed, and for no reason fell to the floor and hit her head.  She didn’t say, but I am assuming she blacked out.  She went to the hospital and they kept her for a couple of days.  They ran all kinds of tests, but still can’t tell her what caused it.  I am praying it is nothing too serious.

Yesterday we were invited out to the Winter home place.  Donnie’s sister in California owns the home place, but, Lois his younger sister lives there right now.  Her and her husband have been separated for over 20 years.  One lives on top of the hill and the other lives down in the valley, past our old place.  It seems to work for them, so more power to them.  Anyway, they had a cook-out for her Husband’s family, and Donnie’s family.  I finally remembered to take my camera yesterday.  I have been forgetting it pretty often.  Got a few pictures of all the kids swimming, and a few of the boys fishing.  They caught several big bass, but I didn’t get a picture of that.  I also got a picture of Rusty enjoying his freedom.  When we take him to the country with us we let him off his leash, and he just runs and runs.  There is also a picture of a fire pit where one of the guys made an up-side-down , pineapple cake.  It was delish.  The house and barns in the background are of Donnie’s  home place where he and all his siblings grew up.



Don’t forget that you can click on the pictures to make them larger.

That’s it for our busy week end.  Hope everyone remembers the reason for this holiday, and said a prayer for our fallen troops as well as the ones still in harms way.

Later…. :)
