It’s All Judy’s Fault, Again

Okay, so we did it.  Judy finished the baby mat and “Hey, Mr. Postman” is delivering it as we speak.  Mary had the Styrofoam cross bars with the toys attached to them but needed the mat with loops on the corners to attach the bars to.  She took some measurements and gave them to Grandma so she could make the mat.  Here’s a picture of the finished product.


Now it’s onto baby’s first quilt made by the loving hands of Grandma. I’ve seen the fabric and been allowed to participate in the design work – it’s gonna be awesome!!!

I, on the other hand, completed Revision C to the steps.  Rev B was to upgrade the steps while Rev C was to install some blocks of wood between the steps and the coach’s frame to firm them up – no more bouncing while entering and exiting the house.  Hopefully there will be no Rev D.

Next it was onto a nice visit with John, Della, and Tippy (their Border Collie).  On the way home, we stopped at Jurek’s Market where we used to buy our fresh cut meat.  They still have good meats, however, their selection is somewhat limited which leaves us with Harbor Springs IGA and Tannery Creek for a wider selection.

Once we returned home, a natural phenomena took place; we both fell asleep in our recliners.  Wow, what a day.  Enough to wear out most people; that is, most people our grandparents age.  Hey, wait a minute.  We are our grandparents age – when did that happen?

Now, after waking up from our naps, we decided to postpone the salmon patty “supper” or the grilled steak “supper” and opted instead for a healthful toasted cheese sandwich.  You see, I forgot to mention that also, on the way home, we stopped by the Dairy Queen (Yes, Mike.  It’s all Judy’s fault, again) thereby rendering our appetites to less than the hungry stage.  So now we get to save the salmon and/or the steak meal for another day.

After naps and “supper” we decided to take a walk into Bayfront Park.  To our surprise, Columbus was discovering Petoskey; that is, the Nina and the Pinta were on exhibit at the dock.  Unfortunately the sun was not right for us to get some good pictures.  Maybe we’ll have to journey back to the park this morning when the sun will be behind us.

Here’s a picture looking back from the dock toward Petoskey as well as an old life boat that is on display on the dock.

We had planned on dragging out our chairs and ambling off to the beach to watch the sunset, but the clouds set in and hid the sun which negated any semblance of said sunset.  Tired showed up so we hit the sack early for a change; if you want to call ten o’clock early. 

Well, that caps off another day in the life.  May God Bless  - - - - - - - - 


  1. I would have guessed that it was "Judy's Fault" ... But you both deserved it. Her for that good looking mat and you for "rev. C" to mod. 2.

  2. I recently heard a comedian tell how it often happens with us humans: "Let's eat something, and then we'll go out and get something to eat." How true!

  3. Awww - I love the baby mat! Can't wait to see it in person! Thanks, Mom!!!
