Granny Tells You What's Going On

Saturday is Right Around the Corner

| February 20, 2009

There are a bunch of options for bluegrass in the D this weekend.  After careful consideration, Papa and I have decieded to head down to the Huron Valley Eagles and see B0 and John and ‘em.  We’ve seen Bo sing quite a bit, but this will be the first time we’ve seen this group.  Bo […]

Home Again

| February 8, 2009

We had a nice visit with M-in-L over the weekend, and ate some good food.  She’s been a little under the weather, but seems to be improving.  Since her back has been bothering her, I helped out a little with some chores.  Did me good to think I might be helping a little. We stopped […]

A Little Project

| January 27, 2009

We bought this house sixteen or seventeen years ago when we came to the Detroit area. At that time, D1 was married and living “up north”, D2 was beginning her last year of high school, and D3 was a freshman in high school. We had a house in our old home town that we hadn’t […]

Choices and Changes

| January 14, 2009

Step-Dad is moving Saturday, to a new place he bought near his son’s home. He asked me to come over yesterday, to look at some things he had set aside as he packed. My step brother is thrilled, I could tell when I talked to him. Excited, glad to have his Dad coming home, so […]

On the Road

| December 27, 2008

We’re off this morning, headed south. We’re staying just south of Knoxville, Tennessee tonight, and then headed to Atlanta Sunday. Just to entertain you, here is what our van looked like, in comparison to the snow at M-in-L’s house over Christmas. In all fairness, our nephew had just shoveled the roof off, so it wasn’t […]

Merry Christmas to All

| December 24, 2008

Merry Christmas to all my friends, readers, and even those of you who have stopped by accidentally. I trust those who don’t celebrate the same holidays that I do won’t be offended by this genuine greeting to fellow Christians. We will be spending time with family today and tomorrow, I hope you are able to […]

Another Goodbye

| December 18, 2008

GS1 flew out of here yesterday. Sometime today he flies to his new duty station in Japan on a military transport. Folks, this was much harder than any time in the past. He’ll be there two+ years, and the odds of Papa and I traveling that far are very limited. GS1 managed to finish his […]

Fun with our Family

| December 8, 2008

We had a wonderful weekend, seeing our little grandchildren and enjoying an early family Christmas celebration. We were missing GS2, who stayed home for his basketball practice, and Step-Dad, who had a cold. The kids received several gifts, and it was hard to tell which was the biggest hit. The most fun for the spectators […]

Great Weekend

| September 23, 2008

We had a great weekend.  I met D2 and retrieved GS3, GD1 and GD2 Thursday afternoon.  They were fun to have around.   In their words, not mine, we “took a day off” on Friday.  They were here becasue there was no school, and they enjoyed it.  Friday night D3 was in charge, and Papa and […]

Happy Birthday

| September 3, 2008

GS2 is having a birthday today, he is seventeen. I could write 17, but seventeen seems older, and he seems older. Here are GS2 and GS3. 2 is driving the jeep that was 3′s first birthday gift. Let’s see, 3 was born in 1999, so the party was in March, 2000. 2 was born in […]
