Howdy All! Let be start by saying that you all are nuts. There is no way so many of you should be wanting to read anything I write. Only one person was sane enough to vote against me and that person was, of course, me. That said, you asked for it and you got it.
Chris headed off to Milwaukee on Sunday morning. When she called to let me know she had arrived in one piece, the second thing she said was "I'm in trouble." I asked "Why?" and she replied..."The snow is coming down sideways!" Upon her arrival that afternoon the temp. was a cool 25F. Now, I know she didn't choose this time of year to visit the mid-west, but I couldn't help think to myself "Better her than me."
Where was I when she called, you ask? I was sitting in a ballpark in 80 degree weather. However, there was a little breeze and we were in the shade, so I could have put on a sweatshirt if I had wanted to. And yes, in between bites of my hot dog, I was sure to let her know just how "miserable" I was.
Her grandma's funeral was this afternoon. Fortunately it had warmed up to about 40 degrees and was sunny. There was a viewing at the church followed by a service and then on to the cemetery for another quick ceremony, then it was back to the church for the "funeral luncheon." She said that it was all very nice, but it was a very long day. They took some pictures for Chris' dad and the pastor made a tape of his service so Bob would be able to hear it. Bob's not being able to travel for the funeral has been tough on everyone.
The plan for the rest of her visit is to help her Aunt Sharon pack up her grandma's things and get them moved out of the apartment.
I hope that wasn't too bad for my first post. If you're all lucky I'll only have one or two more for you before Chris gets home
