Company is coming and I hope the rain stops before their arrival this week.
This weekend, Chuck and Betsy Bradshaw are arriving from Virginia. Thankfully, these are friends who do not require a spotless, Martha Stewart experience while here. In fact, I’m planning on Betsy’s help getting some of the pictures hung on the walls. Most are still in boxes…
Moffett met Chuck at University of Richmond. I met them both in 1973. Betsy and I became instant friends as soon as we found out we were both teaching/studying Special Education.
And we’ve been friends ever since then.
The next weekend, my cousin, Meg Guyot Brown and her husband, Robert, will be here. They live in Las Vegas where the temps are in the 100′s this week. I don’t think rain will bother them at all.
Everything’s green up here in the woods. It has rained and rained, and then rained some more. There are more small green tomatoes showing up on my three plants. So far, (knock on wood) no critters have eaten them. The wildflower plot next to the driveway is blossoming and looks pretty. Moffett’s cut the grass (we don’t refer to it as a “lawn”) and it looks pretty good. The pots on the deck with geraniums and petunias are a little water-logged right now but I have hope that some sunshine will help them.
We saw Willie Nelson and the Charlie Daniels Band earlier this month. It was a fun concert at an outdoor place near us. I thought we’d be the oldest couple there. We weren’t…
