Day 315 - Claypool's, Taylor's, Schultz's & Steel's

Today was an action packed day! Well, as action packed as you can get when you involve a 95 year old Granny! We had a rip-roaring start to the day, well, not really, but it felt early when I finally woke up! We left for Granny’s with a quick stop via Claypool’s. We were staying close by & I always like to check up on the latest cowgirl duds. To our luck, Kelsy arrived shortly after we did! We enjoyed a great chat & did our best to try & make plans for brunch/lunch tomorrow with the elusive hunter Cody. As usual, Kelsy looked like a million bucks. They are getting married soon & I can’t wait to see the photos… She will be a knockout bride!

We left Claypool’s & stopped at the bakery & Tim Horton’s to pick Granny up a few treats. By the time we made it there, she was already in bed. (It was 1400) She was in pain & quite tired from her day yesterday. I had expected this, so we didn’t stay long. She was quite confused & struggled to understand us. She did enjoy cuddling with Valentina though! They are 2 peas in a pod, those two! Granny ate half of her sandwich & Valentina eagerly cleaned up the crumbs & droppings Granny left behind. Once the food was cleaned up, Valentina snuggled up right beside Granny, her nose shoved up against Granny’s arm. They were quite the pair! I could tell Granny needed a nap before her supper, so we said goodbye for today.

I sent a quick text to Trisha & Joleen to let them know we were on our way. We found the family inside, but not for long! A pantless Huxley charmed the pants off… wait, he was the pantless one… He wanted to be held, so no bottoms & wearing his blue rubber boots, Aunty Jill got in a few cuddles with the big little boy, while Buster woke up from his nap & rubbed the sleep from his eyes. We went outside & Trisha showed me the horses while Buster & Huxley & Brad fired up the John Deere Gator – for kids! It’s quite the little set of wheels! The kids were having a hay day bombing around the yard in it. We chatted about the ponies & a few other things… and then it was time to go.

We motored down the road & ended up right on the road to Doug & Joleen’s. I was worried we would be late, but we weren’t! By the time we found their house, Doug had just arrived home. We were pretty excited to head out on the lake in their new boat, but part way through dinner, Doug’s niece needed to go to the hospital. So, with a change of plans, Joleen & the kids toured us around town & down to the docks to see the boat & let the kids & Valentina burn off some steam. When we returned to the house, we had some dessert & then it was hot tub time! They were still breaking in their new Jacuzzi, and I was only more than excited to participate! We were pruned by the time we got out. Poor Doug was pretty bored in town waiting for the Doctors to make their decisions. When we left, he was wandering around Superstore – surely something was needed? Anything? I hope his niece is alright.

The kids were wonderful. Adison has started kindergarten (crazy!), Rhett is so talkative & little Nate is already one & starting to walk! Man! They grow so quickly! Their children are so well behaved. I can’t say it enough. I am amazed at what a great job Doug & Joleen have done with those kids! I know where to come for lessons!

It was a fantastic night! I look forward to the next visit! We motored home & crashed into our king size bed. Jaco on one pillow, Valentina on another pillow & then me on my pillow. Sweet dreams!

Maria, Jaco & Valentina
