This has been a week for cousins. Monday, had supper with Jack and wife, Wednesday, got several emails from Terry in NJ and today, Faye came to my house and we met for the first time! Her dad and mine were buddies as teenagers. They are 21 months apart, and, outta 24 grandchildren, dad was the oldest and Billie was next. We had a great time, she came about 9 and left at 3. Gave me some cool family stuff, and I gave her a pic of her parents wedding and one of her great-great grandfather, with two grand children, all holding musical instruments. She plays piano and organ and always wondered where the talent came from. I told her the story of Grandpappy Sam loved playing in the band SO much that he lost the farm. He'd rather play music than milk cows.
Got a spotty shower last night and again this after. Getting black over towards the river and I hear some thunder. Dad said that they are calling for soaking rains the next couple of days. I sure hope so, corn is beggin' for rain.
Going for breakfast tomorrow, then into town to pick up chicken b-b-q to support the fire company. Need to stop at the amish grocery store for coffee and Archie's cereal. It's a lot cheaper there. Having lunch with Sue and Sarah on Saturday. Sarah's birthday is the week after mine, so we'll celebrate both at the same time. I sure hope it rains.
