Lawrence Welk can be quite entertaining under the influence

Lawrence Welk and Sports--two things that should only be watched under the influence. If you aren't already under the influence, they will force you to be wanting to be under the influence.

We are getting ready to go to a wedding. We have never met either the bride or the groom.

Here is the story. A few years ago my daughter Nancy became Facebook friends with a young woman about her age (Tara), to play games with. Then the other woman's mother (Mary) posted something to someone named Nancy Amaral, so she thought it had something to so with her, but it turned out Mary knew another Nancy Amaral. So by now Nancy was FB friends with both Tara and her mom Mary, and Nancy discovered that Tara lived only a few miles from her. They are now friends in real life, as well as on FB. I became friends with both of them as well. I was able to meet Tara last year. Meanwhile I discovered that Mary has another daughter, Chrysta, just about 50 miles from me. I became FB friends with her, and she also became my Avon representative. They are all more than just online friends. They even sent me money for gas so I could get to the airport to see my dad when he was dying.

Whew! That's the story, and now I will get to meet both Mary and Chrysta at Chrysta's wedding in a few hours. I can't wait! I'd better get off of this thing and get ready, or we won't make it!

I just finished lunch and am about to go out to my studio to do some reorganizing. I ordered, and received, rolling steel shelf unit that I need to put together and set in place. Since I will have to remove some shelves in the area in which the shelf unit will go, I imagine I'll be at it most of the afternoon. I don't anticipate getting done today but I'm in no hurry.

I'll have to stop to make a blackberry cobbler because Glenn just went out back to pick a bunch of blackberries. Yum!

I'm waiting for some white glue to dry. I'm using it to try to get rid of an invisible glass splinter in my foot. I've poked around enough with a sterilized needle. It's on the bottom of my heel. I don't feel it except sometimes when I walk.

LOL! I remember being a kid and at my Aunt Sig's house. My parents used to let me spend weekends there when wanted to get away and my grandparents were busy. They always had Lawrence Welk on Saturday nights.

"And a one, and a twoa...."

I think that's what he said... it's been ages.

I called Son #3. There is a farm stand just down the road from his house. He is going to pick up a couple of dozen farm fresh eggs for me. Oh Joy! Luv that kid!!!
