It’s A Sad, Sad Day

It’s a sad, sad day because we have to go back to w*rk today, but that is not the only reason for it being a sad, sad day.  The main reason is because our playmates, Mike and Peggy, are going to be pulling up tent pegs and heading to points west this morning.  We are tempted to pack up the wagon, hitch up the mule, and tag along with them but, alas, we must stay behind and do what responsible adults do; go back to w*rk and stash away a few more nuts for winter; that is, put a little more money back into the rainy day fund.  At least our kids and grandkids will still be here with us for a couple more days.

Speaking of which, yesterday was a G’ma and G’pa baby sitting day.  Yep, we had the little monsters for about five hours while Matt and Jackie had some time away from the kids.  Remember those days?  They were few and far between.  The same is true for our kids as well, so it was nice for them to get away for a dinner and a movie.  They decided to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary a week and half early while they were in the land where they swapped their nuptials.

Peggy to the rescue.  She showed up with with some fresh homemade Play-Dough, still warm from the oven.  That kept the girls busy for most of the afternoon.  Radek played with it for a few minutes but decided that his cars and trucks had more lure to them; all boy, that one!! 

Mike and Peggy joined the Patterson family for a nice spaghetti dinner.  Peggy brought a great salad which Catia and Kalina just loved.  It’s good to see all three of our grand children eating lots of fruits and veggies.  They prefer grapes, bananas, mellon, fruit Jell-O, etc., to a lot of “junk” food.  Veggies is high on their list as well.  They all come back for seconds from the fruit and veggie bowls.  That’s a good thing.  G’pa could take a lesson or two from his grand children.

Dang nab it, it’s time to go wash behind our ears, put on our glad rags, and head off to w*rk.  “They” say, “All good things must come to an end.”  And, “Too much of a good thing is not a good thing.”  Well, I say that we should  prove to “them” that “they” are wrong.  Maybe that will be our next goal in life but, in the meantime,

Have A Nice Day and May God Bless  - - - - - - - -
