Company's Coming

I'm leaving tomorrow to visit relatives in Ohio for a few days. I also want to visit my parents' grave. So much to do just for a three day jaunt! We have to take Ginger to get her nails done. While we're in town we'll pick up a few things to take with us on our trip. I want to take a cooler so we can bring some foodstuffs back from Ohio that you can't buy here in Michigan like Queen City goetta (what's goetta you say?) and Kahn's wieners. We have to stop the mail for three days because we don't have any trustworthy neighbors to get it for us. If we were at our house in Arizona our next door neighbor would get our mail and put it on our kitchen table. They have a key.

My FIL is worried the car will break down on us. Ohio is NOT in another country! It's about a 7 hour drive. He was trying to talk us into taking a rental car and said he would even pay for it but it would be too much rushing around. Hey, since he was willing to pay $100 for the rental car do you think he'd be willing to shell out some gas money? ha ha

It's supposed to be sunny for a few days so maybe the vegetables in the garden will start to ripen. DH always plants way more than we can use so instead of throwing the extras away this year we'll try to find a food bank to give them to.

Man, I'm windy today! ha ha
