Rachael called earlier and asked if I had seen the moon tonight. That was early in the evening. She said it was huge and orange. So I went outside and my neighbor, Tracy, was out there looking, too. Brian had called her and told her to go out and look at the moon. But it was too low on the horizon to see, because the houses were blocking it. By the time it got up high enough to see, it wasn’t orange anymore. But I told Tracy it was beautiful at about 3:00 this morning when I couldn’t sleep. She said she’s usually up at 3:00 too, so we should sit out in the front yard and drink coffee.
I went shopping tonight, for gifts for the baby shower. It’s so hard to make a decision while walking through Walmart’s baby department. Everything is cute. But I got these:
See those squiggly things that look like snakes? They are baby spoons.
The little sleeper is adorable, and I couldn’t resist the hat and socks.
Here’s the front of the t-shirt:
My grandkids will probably have more cute clothes than their parents know what to do with. In case I only have grandpuppies, there are some cute little doggie sweaters, too
And I missed 2 perfect opportunities to get pictures of Manuel tonight, but I didn’t have my camera with me. When I left Walmart, he was yawning, and I told him to stop that. He said, “Huh?” I said, “Quit yawning. It’s contagious.” He said, “Con-ta-gious?” Poor Manuel….there’s so much he doesn’t understand.
A couple of nights ago, Cathy’s church (chatcat42) took their youth to see a drama. It is called “Straight to Hell.” Cathy is the pastor’s wife, and she printed in the bulletin, “Our youth will be going Straight to Hell at 6:15. If you want to go, see Bro. Glen.” It got everybody’s attention. I asked her if they went in the proverbial handbasket.
This is my sister, Laurie, and her husband, Ricky, last Saturday. His sister gave them a surprise 25th anniversary party….about a month after their actual anniversary. Laurie is the one that had the wedding shower at her house last Sunday.

I survived the first night without my sweetie. Although I did tell him to come home because the kitties don’t snuggle like he does. I called him about 3:30 this morning to tell him I was going to bed, and just wanted to say goodnight. He’s working nights on this trip. He said he was just fixing to go eat some sandwiches that had been brought for them. I actually didn’t go to bed till 4:00 a.m.
We are hardly ever apart, and I don’t like it when we are. He’s my best friend.
Beth came home for lunch and said she got a drink today, got in the self-checkout to pay for it…..and then noticed that the guy in front of her was her ex. He’s the one that didn’t tell her he was also dating another girl at the same time he was dating her. And the other girl got pregnant.
She turned around and went to another check-out before he saw her. I can imagine how the small talk would have gone. “How’s that baby that you two were in the process of conceiving back when we were dating? And oh, by the way, the baby was born on MY BIRTHDAY!”
I never liked him anyway. And she said he looks stupid in a hat.
(Note to somebody in particular….I just saw your “C__________is in your wildest dreams,” and had to laugh. When you’ve been in my dreams, it was a nightmare. )
