2009-11-25 Pecan Pie 002

This year Bill and I celebrated the feast with my sister’s extended family.

We brought GG.

There were cousins and cousin-in-laws aplenty:  One of  Milton’s brothers, Edward and his wife and daughters, Milton’s Dad,  and a couple of sons of Walter’s.  And, of course, to our delight, Leah and Cory. A fun lively time!

GG’s Digs

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

For those of you who have not yet had a chance to visit GG in her new home, here are a few snaps of the place.  We still need to hang photos and curtains, but for the most part, all the furniture is settled.  Oh, I may bring my plant stand over for her.  That is if it will fit. 🙂

Jan and GG picked out the table and chairs at Christmas Tree Shop.  We needed Kim and Anne’s car to actually get it to GG’s new home.  She loves the way the table and chairs coordinate with the kitchenette.

I hope to get the other 3 chairs built soon.  🙂

With autumn comes the ECB Pie Race.

I have a few cute photos of GG, Kim, and Jack, but check Kim’s site ( the link is: on the side of my post)  for a video of the start of the race!  You’ll get a surprise!

GG’s chauffeur was Clive. 

Kim Jack and I “walked” the course this year…. we started small.

After pie and cider we all headed to our respective homes.  Good times!

Halloween 2009

Trick or Treat ?

This year we had the pleasure of accompanying Jack on his first trick or treat foray.

While we did the ‘hoofing around’ with Jack, we had a very special person ‘hold down the fort’ and hand out the candy.

And a fine job she did!

2009-10-31 Halloween 003


Unfortunately, ding bat, Grammie still had her camera set on landscape so most of our photos from this auspicious occasion came out blurry. 🙁

After some ‘warm up’ trick or treat trips to the front doors of neighbors, we stopped at the community hall for refreshment.

2009-10-31 Halloween 014

Along the way we were stopped by the local constabulary.  He asked if we had light sticks.  We were all a bit worried that we would be banned from the treating with out them … or worse we were all headed to the ‘slammer’!

No worries!  he was offering some light sticks to US! 

Jack is wearing that nice light stick in this photo. 🙂
