Early Morning Visitors


There we were, sitting in our PJs sipping our morning brew when we hear this little “knocking at my door”.  Katie immediately ascertained that it was someone under three feet in stature and made a quick retreat by high tailing it for the bedroom.  G’Ma opened the door and in trudged two little rag-a-muffin refugees from next door.  One was toting a piece of toast with lots of butter on it and the other had a snotty nose with drool all over his chin.


This is something that we don’t get when we are staying in a campground and it’s something that we relish, a lot, and need more of.  Now, I have to tell you that we are not your Grand Parent’s Grand Parents.  My G’Ma always had a supply of homemade cookies on hand to give her little angel visitors (that would be me and my brother), but we didn’t have a cookie in the house for a hand out.  Maybe Rocco and Lola’s G’Ma can whip up a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies or oatmeal cookies or molasses cookies to feed the little refugees whenever they come around pan handling.

By the way, if you’ve noticed the tattoos, it’s not because Marc and Amie are “enlightened” parents.  They are the wash off kind and Friday was a Superhero day at school.  I’m not sure when Superhero started wearing tattoos, but these two think they do and just “needed” to have them.  Don’t worry, they’ll come off after a bath or three or six.

Here’s a picture of Miss Briana.  As typical of most teenagers, she spends hours upon hours in her bedroom sitting on her bed yoga style with wires coming out of her ears and her thumbs going like mad while hovering over her smart phone.  Therefore, rarely is there a photo op moment, but she did come out of her “girl cave” long enough for G’Ma to snap this shot.


We mainly hung around the house visiting yesterday.  Later in the afternoon we grilled some chicken and burgers on the grill and served them with some more of Doctor Duke’s baked beans and a garden salad.  This has been a fun visit.  Too bad it is only going to be a short one this year. 

We’ll leave later today heading for Belfast.  We were going to leave in the morning, but there is rain in the forecast for all day tomorrow and we don’t like to travel in the rain if we can avoid it.  It’s only a four and a half trip so we’ll hang out here until noon time and then pack up the wagon and pull out.

See ya tomorrow from my old stomping grounds.  May God Bless  - - - - - - - - -
