My Day with Darling Granddaughter-in-Law

What a wonderful day this was.  Hollie got lost coming to my house, but after I explained to her that we had cats -- NOT a rabbit -- and I got her on the right block, she got here just fine.  She told me she always gets lost and John won't even let her drive.  She told me how she can't stand that mean lady in the box, and I cracked up laughing because I can't stand that lady either!  She said she changed her "lady" to a man.  I didn't know you could do that.

We hurried over to Louie's on the lake where we met Jerry and Phylly.  The four of us screamed as loud as we could in order to hear each other over the roar in the restaurant.  No carpet, no drapes, no fabrics anywhere to absorb the sound.  You could hardly hear at all.  Still, the food was good, and we had a good time.

Then Hollie and I went to get a pedicure.  We had to wait about 30 minutes, but we did get to sit together.  We got two Vietnamese girls to work on us, but neither spoke much English.  Hollie's girl asked her where her dress came from.  Hollie explained that she got it at a consigment store, but it had originally been from some other place.  Hollie told her she paid only $6 for it and that she buys beautiful clothes at the consignment shop all the time.  The girl asked Hollie when they were going to have a sale.  I tried to explain about "consignment" but the girl looked like she was totally lost, so I just shut up. 

Here we are having a lovely time getting to know each other better.

We talked and talked and talked, and the most AMAZING MIRACLE happened -- she still likes me!  What a blessing to have her in our lives, but how sad that she is going clear to ALASKA!!! 

I told her I thought about going with her so she wouldn't have to fly all by herself, and then I could help her get set up there.  She said, "Sure, you should do that!"  I forgot to mention that it would take an army to drag me onto an airplane, so it won't be happening.  If she was moving to Texas, I would be there for sure!

We just finished dinner, and I need to get back out and visit.  Wanted to stop to make a quick post though.

Hugs, Joy
