Blog Every Day in November (2015)

It looks like half a year since I blogged and that makes me unhappy.  The "Blog-A-Day" for this month sounds like it should kick start me.

November 1 - SUNDAY:  Well, the Hallowe'en-ers are gone and most of the candy is, too.  I am sure the granddaughters will take care of finishing the left over.  I think Gabby's costume was the best of the 50 or so costumed beggers who came around.  Gabby and her dad built a Claw Machine out of a big cardboard box. Her mother took part in the design and details.

November 2 - MONDAY:  This was Turkey Trot day for the students at St. Pius.  They chose our Metro Park for the run.  Abby ran, Gabby stayed back with a sore leg and helped with the younger children.  Their mommy and I got to the park in time for her to run with the kids

November 3 - TUESDAY:  While R's son is home all week they decided to cut the grass and mulch the fallen leaves so I picked up the girls from school.  Some how the 6 of us ended up at Pranks-On-The-Marsh for Taco Night.

I spent most of the earlier part of the day trying to straighten out the Benjamin line of Mother's side of the family.  John was a sailor on a Privateer ship, the Defense, that ran goods to and from countries illegally as England had ordered that all goods had to go through England.  Since they occasionally "took" a ship or fort on their own they were really Pirates.

November 4 - WEDNESDAY:  
Blah!

November 5 - THURSDAY:
R. called at a little after 5 that he was packing.  His father had passed away at 5:00 and he was leaving for Florida.  I told him I could be packed in an hour ready to go with him.  As it was, with some business he had to do, we didn't leave until 10 AM.  By 10 PM we were ready to find a motel for the night.

 November 6 - FRIDAY
On the road early the next morning and at his dad's place by 4 PM.

By 6 PM we were at our place in Sebastian.  Neighbors stopped by with condolences.  The house had been cleaned thoroughly and was quite the welcome sight.

November 7 - SATURDAY
Funeral is all set.
The television isn't working.  Direct has sent a new box.  We watched the Michigan State football game on my computer and that worked well.

November 8 - SUNDAY
No TV so R watched my computer.  Netflix, Longmire - Season 4 for 10 hours!.

November 9 - MONDAY
Attorney meeting.  No news
Called the City of Gibraltar and they let me pay my water bill by credit card.  Nice to know.  A neighbor loaned us a TV they weren't using and hours on the phone with Direct TV, finally got us some entertainment.

November 10 - TUESDAY - 20 anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
Pedicure while R handles business by phone.

November 11 - WEDNESDAY Veterans Day
Funeral Home visitation for R's dad.

November 12 - Thursday
Interment for R's dad.

 Dinner at VFW for family

November 13 - Friday
A down-day.  R has a lot of work to do with his sister and the attorney.  Even with a will and stuff there may be 2 years getting everything straightened out.  R's daughter and her friend (and dog) went sightseeing around here.

November 14 - Saturday
Prime-time MSU Football win over Maryland - Go Sparty!

November 15 - Sunday
 Lunch at Squid Lips with T and her friend, P. before they went back to St Augustine.

I went with R to the attorney's office and a couple of banks.  Then we went to lunch at Rusty's on the Port with Jane and Bob.

What Have I Been Doing?

My last post was when the granddaughters and their parents were visiting us in Florida.  Nothing much has happened but I should be able to catch up in a brief entry.

They finished the Hot Rod.  A few car shows and car cruises and. surprise of surprises, they are tearing it down in order to rebuild the engine to get "More Power".

It was a quiet summer with just day to day and week to week normal tasks and events.
