This has not been a good year for anyone I know. About all we can say is that we got another year older (and deeper in debt...remember Tennesee Ernie Ford's Sixteen Tons?)
My three great-granddaughters are here for the week. I took them to my grandson's basketball game this morning. This afternoon we have to get groceries because we are totally out of fruit. The girls consume large amounts of fresh fruit every day so I have to restock my supply. I also need to get more "kid food" like hotdogs, Dora soup (chicken noodle), chicken nuggets etc. They love going to Cub Foods because there are shopping carts with a "car" in front that the two youngest can ride in and little "customer in training" carts for the oldest girl to push. It's a dandy experience that they find special when they come to see me in St Paul.
I'm taking pictures so I'll post some this week.
