Back from the funeral and more....

Well, we left Friday around noon. My daughter & I went alone. Ron is pretty much on call all the time, except when he's working ;-) so.. and the boys, well.

My Aunt Vi was a sweet heart and my Grandma's sister. Gram passed away last May. To see what a great woman Gram was, see my Mothers Day post.




So anyway I'm ready to throw my stuff in the car, and my dear daughter tells me I can put my bag on the floor in the back. I said , "Why not on the seat?" She shrugs. I go out & see this:





and this:




So, the bag went on the floor. I humored her & the "kids" went with us on our 3 hour tour.

At the wake, I got to see cousins- actually my mom's cousins, but many around my sister's and my age. My one cousin's son has a little 4 month old baby he is raising. We had alot of fun with the baby. I swear the kid remembered me from like 3-4 weeks ago- ok, he's a friendly baby!

I felt really bad for my Great-Aunt Essie. She is the last surviving sibling. There were 4 girls and one boy.

While I was gone, I guess Rollback came to visit Ron. Rollback is another character in a long line-up of characters in our lives. He used to drive a roll-back (to tow cars) at a place where Ron help's out now & then ( a friend's shop). Ron calls everyone by a nickname. Most people do name associations in their heads, Ron call them by the association.

Some of our friends:
Uncle Kenny, Uncle Eddie, Horner-boy, Mac-man, Big Ron

I'm sure there's more, but I am tired. Until tomorrow, or the next day.....

Long, long day.
I'm so sorry.

That back seat looks nice and cozy :->

Thank you for being a part of the Virtual GNO. Hopefully you've had some brightness and good times.
