I got a wonderful surprise today. A man came walking down the sidewalk and Danny started barking. I was afraid to open the door so I looked out the clear part of the glass and saw it was the Federal Express man. Someone sent me flowers. The return address was San Diego, CA. I don't know anyone there. I opened the box and saw it was from my good friends, Naomi and Jim. Naomi is my sister-in-law's sister. I went to school with three of the sisters. The flowers are a bouquet of irises with a vase. They haven't opened yet but are starting too. They will look beautiful

I didn't do too much today. I weeded some more and called the cable company as I wasn't able to get into my voice mail. Evidently, they change the program and the code had to be reset. They claimed they sent me a letter about it but I never got it. I was going nuts entering my code and getting a message that it wasn't a valid code. After getting that taken care of, I called Naomi to thank her for the flowers. We talked for a while and we were both having trouble with our phones.

Erin came home from her job around 4:30 and was talking to my next door neighbor, Robbie. He said he would cut my grass this weekend as he owes me a grass cutting from last fall. I had forgotten that I prepaid him and he wasn't able to do it. I'm glad he will be doing it as I hate cutting grass. I hate weed wacking even more. I use Roundup as much as possible to cut down the weeds.

After dinner, Erin and I went for a walk around town. There were a couple shops open so we went in. There was also a wedding going on at the church. The bridesmaids have on short, hot pink, sleeveless dresses and wore hot pink flip-flops. The men wore navy blue sport jackets and khaki pants. Somehow, the casualness didn't seem appropriate for a formal wedding.

Young people today have different ideas of what is "formal".

How nice to receive flowers. Would brighten anyone's day.

Hi Karol, How very nice it was for you to receive flowers when you were not expecting a gift from anyone. That is when a gesture such as sending flowers is so genuine and dear. An unforgettable memory for you.

Oh my, hot pink short dresses and bright pink flip flops. Does indeed seem a little different, but, many in this generation feel they can do most anything that "feels good", and it is presumed that the world should just blindly accept this as A-OK. It surely isn't the way we (an older generation) think about formal weddings. I wonder if the minister that married them struggled with all of this? It's a whole lot different than what we were taught. We shake our heads and ask how this all happened!

Have a great weekend Karol. Ruth

My minister has a daughter who is in collage so I guess he is in tune with the times.
