Wayne with Binky
We have enjoyed six days of guests. The grandchildren arrived first then our friends from Kentucky. Grandchildren left on Sunday and our friends left this morning heading for a two month visit in California. It was totally an exhausting good time.
I was the queen of the kitchen and enjoyed preparing delicious meals for everyone. In return Wayne and Judy took us to the casino last night and bought us a very elegant meal. They played the poker machines and we basically watched, spending only $10 and winning $5 of that back.
Our dogs got along well and Slim was a very good hostess to Bitsy after they both got over the initial jealousy. Binky couldn't play with the dogs because he is in failing health. This is a 19 year old doggy companion of Wayne's and they are planning to have Binky put to sleep when they arrive in California. He will be buried with his siblings. He is the oldest surviving liter mate of nine. I can't think of ever seeing a small dog like this living such a long time. It was very sad to watch them go and know that we would not see Binky on their return trip.
Now Ron and I can once again be creatures of habit and return to Netflix for me and tractoring for him.
It was great to see everyone come -- and great to see everyone go:-)
