Off to Ottawa

Yesterday was a great day even though I had to take my mom to the Dr and found out that she has Bronchitis. That is not good with someone that has Emphysema and is Diabetic. The Dr gave her medicine and said she should be fine...

On to the Great part...Mac and I went to Ottawa to met Speed and Sherri at Appleby's. They were on their way to Shawnee, Kansas to see their new grandson and the older one also...I guess they wanted to see the grownup kids too..lol
Mac wanted to wear his Sunday Dress, but I discouraged that. Thank Goodness...Speed showed up in jeans! Wouldn't of that been embarrassing...(to me) haha
We had a great visit! It seemed like we had known them forever instead of just meeting in person. Oh my gosh..it is scary how much Mac and Speedy have in common. I'm sure Sherri and I will have to keep a very close eye on them whenever they are together!! Sherri and I hit it right off also. We have a lot in common.We both love crafts and shoes! HaHa..
I was a little nervous about meeting them, but it was great! I don't know why I was nervous, maybe wondering if they would like us or if we would just fit in the group. But after just seeing them and the first introductions it was like we had known them forever...wonderful!!!
We sat and had something to drink and visited for only about an hour but they needed to get back on the road so they could get to their son's house and see those little ones. Mac and Speedy practically had to drag us out...we just couldn't quit talking..Sherri, we'll finish those conversations in Kerrville in March.
I wanted to take some photos so I checked my camera before we left and it was working fine. Mac got up to take the photo and the camera wouldn't stay on..The Battery Was Dead! Oh my gosh...but Speedy was right with it and took some and will email them to me...
Well, I better get off here, Chris and Dusty should be pulling in any time now...
Talk to you all in Chat!! Have a Great Weekend!

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Let me tell you...we had a good time visiting and the next time we are together it will be even better. Yes Mac and I have a lot in common and I am sure we will find more when we meet again in Kerrville. We will keep in touch in the chat room until then. See you again Somewhere in Time
