Social butterfly

Or not. But I sucked it up today because it is FlaMan’s birthday. We drove up to his place and picked up a McDonald’s breakfast on the way. We would have much preferred to have taken him out for brek or lunch. The pic is from three years ago when we took him out for lunch in Grand Blanc. The Lady of Linden (our sister) provided the birthday cake hat. Alas, this year we are STILL dealing with FRICKIN’ covid and didn’t feel safe going out, at least I didn’t.

So we brought him a McDonald’s brek (which he likes) and a couple other gifts. We surprised him with a fancy new Kindle to replace his 2017 model which was being problematical. He seemed happy with that and that made us happy.

We were sitting there watching Gunsmoke, his fave show, when a couple of familiar looking folks walked up to the door. Wouldn’t you know, it was the Lord and Lady of Linden. I had not seen them in person since December 2019. The Lady of Linden immediately grabbed a chair and positioned it directly across from where I was sitting and, introvert that I am, I was gabbling away like crazy with my sister-in-law. She is *not* an introvert 🤣. Mostly discussion about who has had covid and what their symptoms were and yada yada yada. I love her and was realizing how much I have missed her and other relatives.

Eventually I dragged us outta there because the beach urchins were scheduled to come over and engineer dinner today. Fortunately we got a wee bit of chill out time before that all happened. The GG even took a nap.

We ended up with BBQ chicken thighs and veggies and it was warm enough we were able to eat OUTSIDE.

    What a wonderful day–full of family and good food! Outside?! We’re not quite there yet.

    Before I had my coffee, I looked at that picture and thought, “Wow, Bill went on a bender!” Strong family resemblance between FLaMan and the Twins of Terror.
