An Unexpected Visitor
Remember a few posts ago, I mentioned not seeing my son often enough....not because of lack of interest on either of our parts...just the circumstance of life, as it goes. Well, unbeknownst to me, my son, Scott, and daughter Kelly have surprised me....he's HERE!
Kelly invited that old navy man and I to dinner last night 'so Rick could grill hamburgers for me.' Rick is my son-in-law and I love his hamburgers, so, of course, I said yes right away. He's a good cook and a good son-in-law. So, about 6:00 p.m. off we go to their house. Kelly wasn't there and being a realtor, we thought she was out showing a property and would be home any minute, so Richard (the old navy man) and Rick visited while I took the 'granddog' Trixie for a walk.
I should have known something was up when Rick came looking for us, saying I should come on the back patio til Kelly showed up....so I did. I didn't know it, but he was in on the surprise and didn't want me in the front of the house when Kelly and Scott arrived. So, I'm sitting at the table talking to the guys, petting the dog, when Kelly comes out on the patio. Someone was with her, but it didn't quite dawn on me who it was until I took a good look and it was SCOTT!
What a fabulous surprise!!!
So, I guess I'd better be more careful what I write about in this blog. I know both my kids are followers of it, but I didn't know Scott read it that carefully....but, who cares? He's here, not without some expense and trouble on his part, and keeping a secret on Kelly's part, plus she drove to Little Rock to get him at the airport. Aren't they cool!!! And, he's here until Monday!!! And, I get to SEE that face.....what a wonderful thing!
Give me a few days...then, I'll post again.....take care, pat
