The grandkids


The husband and I travelled in a sleet and snow storm which began just south of Center, MO and increased in intensity until we arrived unscathed at the daughters house in Luray, MO which is  10 miles west of Kahoka, MO the town where I grew up and where my parent and in-laws still live.  It continued to snow throughout the day and th ground is snow white and the temp is a cool 37 degrees. I brought my sewing machine and various sewing supplies.   We finished the prom dress yesterday.  Granddaughter  is very happy with the dress.  Grandmother (me) is relieved that Granddaughter is happy.  The roads seem to be clear now.  So after lunch we will start the 150 mile (3 hour) drive home.  I am always so happy to come visit and so happy to make it safely back home to my warm bed and loving pets.   Ralph,beagle/bassett extroidenaire, has spent the weekend at the home of our good friends the Stewarts.  He enjoys playing with their mix breed Sam.  He does run and stand by the door signaling that he is ready to leave when we arrive to pick him up.  Guess he likes home too.  Hoping one and all have a safe and happy weekend.  Hoping my friend Dianna makes it safely to St. Louis and her mother makes it safely through surgery.   Enjoy the prom dress photos.   Beverly

The dress turned out nice for a beautiful girl, We just returned from visiting Mom in Westphalia. Jake brought mom a nice fresh bunch of flowers. The Stewarts are so good to mom. It is comforting to know she has such good neighbor. I did not see Ralph...
