2019 May 17 Friday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

“It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed.

Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.” ©Snoopy

It was a dark and stormy night but no shot rang out, no door slammed, no maid screamed, and no pirate ship appeared on the horizon. We did flinch a couple of times at the close lightening strikes and booming thunder.

The worst part of the storm is past us now.

A little over 2 1/2″ of rain from the storm.

Pollen advisory? Really? It must be going to dry off quickly.

And look at our patio, that I worked do hard on. I just got the maple leaves cleaned up. Now I have maple seeds everywhere!

We had oatmeal for breakfast. Ella likes her’s with brown sugar and milk. I, just like my mother, like mine with brown sugar and butter. Does anyone else eat theirs with butter instead of milk?

The group at the Grimes senior center today.

Ella and Joyce stuffed bulletins for the Crossroads church that Joyce attends. (not to be confused with Cross Tracks that we attend in Texas)

While they were doing that I helped with cleanup in the center kitchen.

We don’t see many Orioles at our feeders so this was a rare treat for us. We also attracted a cowbird and red winged blackbird.

We played Card Jackpot with about a dozen others art Cutty’s adult center. It was a good way to end the day.


I’m sharing the link to the Go Fund Me account for our Texas home church that burnt last Saturday.

Follow this link if you’d like to help with recovery from the fire at Cross Tracks Church, a United Methodist Community.

God bless and g’nite
