A good time was had by all. It was HOT, but we enjoyed the food , fellowship, and plants. I'll post some pics here. I'm sure you all will see some familiar faces. 1st: My favorite pic of the day, Nolan and Drew.( Ric & robyn's new dog.)
2nd This is the trough Joycet made and got filled for Gigi's Shade garden. Paid for by donations.
3rd Food line and great eats! 4th Plant trading , and last but not least, Ric as auctioneer.
There were some serious discussions about this RU between Sue, Robyn and I starting many weeks ago.
At first Sue wanted to keep it as light and upbeat as possible w/ no mention of Gigi.
Then she realized that we all knew her too and she had in fact met most of us at the last RU.
Most importantly it was one of Jessica and Sue's 'Good Days'.
She decided Jessica needed to be remembered.
As time went on it evolved into a Celebration of Friendship and Family holding and helping Sue and her Family as much as we could.
Funny we've had RU's now ranging from snow/sleet at the first one to right at 90° yesterday.
Let me see if I can get these to load today.
#1 Dave and Dru picked out a shady spot.
#2 Robyn, Lou and Rebecca (R-L) looking at Rebecca's wonderful glass ornaments.
#11 The nice thing about this venue is the shade and good breezes off the Ohio River.
Even at near 90° it was pretty comfortable there. tabasco, in her gardening hat, talking to Sue.
As you can see the plants keep coming in.
it was a good day.
BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE. !!!!
Bonnie i agree. We missed you but need you to take care of yourself. Sending well wishes to you and a speedy recovery
I stayed at Cookie's and she kept me drunk and up late !! sheesh.
#15 I have to say this one scared me a bit. We really weren't sure how Dru would do around small male children.
He had been raised around little girls. Chelle's little guy and Little D were like Dog Whisperers to him.
I didn't take any photos yesterday. I'm considering killing Ric for a few he did take. LOL No problem mentioning my kid's names. I have a baseball bad and a 2 dog alarm. :)
I did want to pop in here and say I had a really nice time yesterday. It was so nice to see everyone!
Morganne wanted me to be sure to thank those of you that gave her stuffed "Graduation" and "Congrats on the job" cards. It was very thoughtful of you. You are the best parents and grandparents that we never had!
No only did we come home with a slew of plants and cuttings, I made off with a new mixer, a box of shoes, a bag of shoes, cabbages and more! Every time I turn around, I find something else. LOL
And thank you Pat, for sending us home with the rest of that big Servatii's pretzel sandwich. It came in handy while we sat at the ER for 3 hours. But you knew that since I was bending your ear.
Morganne didn't feel good and had a sore throat with blisters. I would have sworn she had Strep. I didn't want her to have to wait until Tuesday to get antibiotics so we stopped at the ER. They did a Strep test and it came back negative. So they did a mono test and it too came back negative. They ended up giving her a prescription and told her to see her family doctor on Tuesday. Geesh. Her throat is still swollen and she feels like crud. It didn't stop her from going out last night. LOL She also made it to Graduation yesterday but could barely talk.
could it be the foot and mouth disease ?? or is that just a infant thing ? i know jessica had it once and it hurt like the devil poor thing.
hope she feels better soon. sending healing thoughts to her.
Thanks Sue. I don't think so. She doesn't have anything anywhere but her throat. Her lymph nodes weren't even swollen. Two doctors and two nurses were perplexed. LOL At least they gave her antibiotics. Hopefully she'll be feeling better by tomorrow.
