Out of State Visotors

Hi from rainy Indiana. We can use the rain so I'm not going to complain about the weather. (But it has been awfully hot, t00!) Tracy and Anna Grace left on Sunday morning and they had plans to visit a cave or two on the way home; they arrived back in Hattiesburg about 12:30 on Monday. They did have a bit of excitement on the way home. They stopped for gas and suddenly many sirens were blaring, they counted 22 State Police, Sheriff cars and local police cars roaring down the highway - it appears they were on a very high speed chase. They were all headed in the direction Tracy had just come from! Guess they had an angel on their shoulders.

On Sunday evening Palmer, Lois, Becky and Aaron arrived. We had our supper and visited for a bit and Becky and Aaron left for Lafayette, they had an appointment to visit Purdue Monday morning and a visit to Butler, in Indianapolis that afternoon. Palmer and Lois stayed here and we ate, visited, ate, took a ride and ate some more! We even managed to take short naps! Mark came at 4:00 and we took them to Indianapolis to meet up with Becky & Aaron. We had our dinner at a cute restaurant - food would have been good but it was cold! Oh well, we did our best. The onion rings were perfect! We said our good byes and took off in opposite directions. They got back to Michigan at about 11:00 and we got home by 6:00. Nate didn't get to see them because he's at the Bikers Boogie since last Saturday. Mark was packing up to go on Wednesday. He had plans to go sailing today and will be back in town tomorrow.

Mitch arrived Friday afternoon and it's great to see him - it's been a year since we last saw him. He is such a handy man - the header lining in my car was coming loose and he fixed that. Also having trouble with the trim on the trunk of my car and he figured out a way to fix that, too. We also have two wasps nests and he found a spray to kill the wasps and will take down their little 'home'! He's gone to church this morning with Chet and Paul (transportation provider).

Below are a couple of pictures of the Arizona/Michigan visitors.

The group - aren't we just the smilingest people you've seen in a long time? LOL

Nope - no sewing since Anna Grace was here and made her pillow! Haven't "stitched an inch" in a while - but projects are waiting to be finished and more ideas are popping into my head!

That's it for now - stay well!
