Memorial Day Weekend - Family Fun
I am a person who has to have everything ready and under control, or I suffer the consequences of nerves being out of control. I wanted to make every thing simple so that I could enjoy my family being here. So I did an oven pork chop dinner with bake potatoes, and of course my southern green beans, and Lorri K. brought a salad bar. Laura brought rolls, and since it was my cousin Penny's birthday the day before, I bought a birthday cake at Costco.
It sure was a fun weekend and the best part was the telephone call Allen made to my estranged son Garen, as I ended up getting to wish him a happy birthday, and told him I loved him, and hoped some day I could see him in person and give him a hug. He told me he loved me too. I found out that he is working in Carson City, NV. He was in Manti, UT fishing with his family, and freezing his hind end off. The weather is so crazy. Even today is so much cooler than normal. The weather man says it won't hit a 100 degrees for another week and it is June 7th. Crazy, crazy, Sign of the times. I will take all the cool summer days we can get. I know it will be hot soon enough and I am dreading it.
