2019 August 02 Friday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

61° overnight and 64° at sunrise.

I work 3-10 today which means I can go to coffee this morning and lunch at the Grimes senior center today. However, when we arrived this coffee, we were the only ones there. So, we left.

It has been a long time since I’ve had this kind of hecktic, non-stop day. And I didn’t care for it at all.

Tomorrow is the Nye Family Reunion. I hope for Ella’s sake that a lot of them show up.

She found out last night that our one grandson and family will not attend because of other commitments. They live in Des Moines and are also members of Cutty’s, yet we’ve only seen them for a few minutes out of the 86 days we’ve been here.

You would think that with it being summer and kids not in school, that we would get to see the great grandkids once in a while. But they have their own lives to live and we’re just peripheral in that life.


6:30 pm.

God bless and g’nite
