It was a nice weekend. UK won, the rain stopped before the creek got too far out of its banks and into the church basement, and Rachel and Chris came down for supper Sunday evening and brought the great-grandchildren. They went home just before both Sandy and I had a nervous breakdown. They are beautiful, adorable and loud. They’re 2 and 4. What can one expect?
Rachel is expecting her third at the end of this month. Small children and babies are definitely for the young.
John and I finished the project — well, almost. The basics are done. He still has to put the baseboard back on the wall and at the bottom of the cabinet and I have to put the finish strips over the exposed nail heads. But all the dog food, soft drink cartons, cleaning supplies, etc., are safely stored in the shelves and I put a curtain in front of everything. All my bits and pieces in the utility room are out of sight.
Wanda flew to Orlando last Sunday. Her initial destination was to visit her friend Judy. She didn’t give me a last name. Judy lives in a retirement park where everybody lives on their own clock. She was to be met at the airport by a high school friend, Carolyn Swigert Polonski, who was to pick her up and take her to Judy’s house. But before the plane arrived, Carolyn’s husband had chest pains and Carolyn had to take him to the emergency room. Carolyn called her next-door neighbor and asked her to go to the airport for her, which they did and took Wanda back to Carolyn’s house. Carolyn’s husband stayed at the hospital overnight and after tests the next morning was given a clean bill of health and came home — after which, Carolyn took Wanda to Daytona to meet Judy. From then on it was go, go, go. New Smyrna Beach is just 10 minutes away from Judy’s house so they went there. Wanda said it’s a beautiful beach and the weather was great. She walked on the beach and thoroughly enjoyed herself.
On Thursday, several of Judy’s friends and Wanda went to the space shuttle launch. It was another beautiful day, clear skies, a perfect day for a launch. She really enjoyed that, too.
On Saturday, they went to Daytona Speedway and watched a dog race. She said they stayed on the run all week and laughed a lot.
They wanted her to stay another week but her flight had already been booked and her vacation was over. She had to come back to cold, wet Kentucky — her words. She said it was 80 degrees every day she was there and no rain.
Lou Ann was back at church Sunday. She is walking with a walker but doing just fine. She really looked good.
We had a special speaker this Sunday, Jim Thomas from Grant County. He is a member of the Gideons Society. He gave a very nice talk. The Harrod children were back, too. Keenan has been competing in school wrestling tournaments the past two weeks. He was first in his regional weight class and third in the state tournament. That’s pretty good for a 65-pound second-grader. Congratulations.
I finally got back to the Hand and Foot table Friday. It was good to see my friends again. I am suppose to play bridge at Kathy Keith’s house Tuesday. My social life is on the upswing.
