Tina and I set off on a day trip to Moultrie with Tina’s daughter, sweet Amy, as our companion and driver. Only on the rural roads in Alabama and Georgia would you be held up by such as this. We must have passed 3 or 4 during our trip. We also saw a deer or 2 run cross our path, and a good ‘ole boy State Trooper who, thank goodness, was not in the mood to give out tickets! Of course, the prayers from the passengers and the driver could have had something to do with it, too!
Here is our P.I.T. crew…Amy, Jolie, and Jayna. J and J are Shirley’s daughters. But, I claim all 3, too! Our mission for the day was a local craft show, some junking, and lunch and shopping downtown. And, we accomplished it all!
On the streets of Moultrie. I do not know what that looks like in my hands…kind of like a green tumbleweed. But, it is 2 strands of garland we bought off the wall from a lady who didn’t own the store, and didn’t know the price and didn’t really know if she should sell it. But, she did…I mean, really now, she didn’t stand a chance up against the likes of the 6 of us. We were not going to leave without the garland…and she really wanted to get back to her beauty shop next door. And, I paid for it in the restaurant. I know it sounds confusing…but, I promise…it was all legal. And the garland looks extremely nice in the Creek House, thank-you very much! FYI: Really…don’t try to figure it out.
Now, would you just look at this sweet rabbit that jumped up in my lap to have her picture made with us! Her name was Lila…and she wanted very much to live in Dothan. So, we obliged!
We had a wonderful day, as we always do when we are together! Went back by Shirl’s house to see the rest of the family. Learned to do the Hippity Hoppity Dance from Little Gabby, and almost got to read a book with her! We headed home…slower…and made it here by dark! Great day! Hope you feel better, Shirl!
Today, we went to church. And afterward went out to eat with Tina, Buddy, Jim and Jan. Since today was Tina’s official birthday, we managed to make her a spectacle in Applebee’s by telling them it was her birthday. Don’t ya just hate it when they start all that clapping and singing? The free desert is nice, though!
Then, this afternoon was a special time for my niece, Lori. Joy’s youngest daughter is getting married in May, and our dear friend, Patty, headed up a shower for her, assisted by the girl’s in their Sunday School class.
Here is beautiful Lori. She is a psychologist here in Dothan.
Lori enjoyed opening her wonderful gifts. Next to her are Joy and Mom. Sorry, Tara, I didn’t get you in the pic. OOPS.
Patty and I being silly around the food table. Lori loves lemons, so there was lemonade, lemon cake, lemon squares, etc. All yummy!
The 2 prettiest girls there…Lori and her Granny!
Whew! I think I need to put my feet up and rest! Good thing next week is spring break!
