Last weekend I went up to Anne's on Thursday for a family weekend. Beth was coming and we were planning a lot of being together time.

Anne was going to get a pedicure with a fellow teacher so I babysat for her. Of course, for me that is being thrown in the briar patch.

We went down to Sonic for supper. The children played for maybe forty-five minutes on the playground there. They were the only children there and they had a good time.

Adam got a regular burger and George and Emma each got the child's burger dinner.

George was opening a package of catchup when it spurted out in a long line on the table. He looked it up and down, looked up, and said "That was unexpected."

George's delivery is what makes his sayings funny.

Since there were three nights each got to sleep with me one night. When Beth got there, she slept in Emma's bed. The others usually just sleep on the floor by my bed.

We always read some from one of the Silverstein books, like Where the Sidewalk Ends, before they go to sleep.

Adam was having problems with going to sleep because he had had a bad nightmare. Seems the Abominable Snowman got him, took him to the top of a mountain, and was eating his body when he woke up. That would scare anyone.

Ken was out of town. He had gone to Lexington, Kentucky, to settle a case. He came back Friday afternoon.

Friday morning we got up early and picked Beth up at the airport before 8 o'clock. It was good to see her. We had not been together since Christmas. However, that doesn't seem so bad now since long distance phone calls and emails exist and are free. when I was a young adult, I would get to talk to my parents at most once a month because we couldn't afford long distance calls.

I would just like to add that it was a delightful weekend. We had a great time just hanging out together and talking. But from a differnt point of view, as George says, "The adults talk to much."
