It’s almost martini time at jupe’s house and I’m just getting to blogging. My brother, Mark, came last night bringing his daughter’s truck so we could go get Eileen’s loom today. And that’s what we did.
By the time we hit the road to Allegan it was snowing. On the way back we hit freezing rain, but Mark successfully got us and the loom safely home.
Right now, Eileen’s new loom is sitting on our porch waiting for her to figure out how to get it into the dining room where it will probably live.
We had friends help us, Ketzi Zylstra and her son Sam. This was especially helpful since Eileen took a bit of a spill in Allegan. She tripped over a poorly marked curb at the hardware store in Allegan. She is very sore right now and will probably be more sore tomorrow.
We were supposed to drive to Flint tomorrow to meet with my friends Dave and Paul. They got married this week after 39 years and invited us to a little get together at a coffee shop. Unfortunately, Eileen and i are both feeling the effects of a strenuous but satisfying day. If Eileen feels this bad or worse tomorrow we will probably call in elderly and skip the trip to Flint.
