Well, I had a surprise!!
My son called to say he was coming up to see us. He really wanted to visit the Eastern Shore Virginia because at some point he will move here. When the time is right....
So we had a lovely visit with Brittany and husband. They live on the Eastern Shore and acted as tour guides for Michael, which turned out really well. He saw several areas that he felt 'at home' in.
We all ate at the Shanty Seafood restaurant in Cape Charles. Remind me to never order the scallop platter for lunch again!!! There were 8 of those suckers, big as hen's eggs just about. I thought I was gonna explode. Yes, I know... I didn't have to clean my plate! Just saying, I shouldn't have.
While we were eating, this HUGE yacht pulled into the pier at the restaurant. I mean HUGE... over 130 ft. long. Michael was laughing and saying 'Well, they have finally delivered the new yacht I ordered.' He wishes. ha ha. He has a 27' sailboat back in Alabama. And, he loves it but a guy can dream, now, can't he?
At Brittany's I sat on their screened-in porch and finished a book that I had been reading. The breeze was just heavenly. The scent of gardenia wafted in on the air.
Dylan (my great-grandson) right away challenged his great-uncle Michael to a couple games of Chess. And, beat the socks off of him both times.
The next morning Dylan wanted me to play Chess. You gotta be kidding! I can't figure that game out and I am too old to learn. So, we settled on checkers. I'll be, he beat me twice. That little stinker.
So, it's been a busy week. Michael left this morning. And, on Tuesday my Susan and her youngest, Tighe, will arrive from New York for a short stay. I have not seen them since a year ago last Oct. I mean, that's way too long!! Can't wait for them to get here.
Hope your week is going well.
