Mmmm… We went into town today to Mimi’s house and then to Naunie’s house. (Grammy's sisters live next door to each other.) Grammy cooked some potatoes and cabbage to add to Mimi’s Corned Beef, and we took that to Naunie’s, who had also cooked Corned Beef, but she baked hers with a mustard and brown sugar glaze. It smelled so GOOD!!!
They also had green lemon meringue pie and green tinged peach cobbler… THAT was weird, but tasted pretty good! Wish we’d gotten more than a little taste!!! I don’t know what this St. Patrick’s Day thing is about, but it has something to do with green and lots of good food.
At first, we weren’t allowed over to Naunie’s because she has a relative that doesn’t like dogs… I never knew there were people like that!!! And I heard he was an old cowboy that used to rope at rodeos, too, so you’d think he would like animals. Strange! He left soon after dinner, though, to go watch the kids at their softball practice, so Mimi, Naunie, and Grammy let us come in and gave us some of the leftovers while they were cleaning off the plates… That corned beef was whisker lickin’ good!!!
Tomorrow we get to go back to town because Grammy has another funeral to attend… These things make Grammy so sad, I’m not sure I understand why she goes to them. Grammy says this lady was her Sunday School teacher for many years and one of HER Mom’s best friends. She had a laugh that made everyone smile. She says that she needs to support the lady’s family and be with the people that loved her, but that at least she knows the lady is happy and in Heaven so she has a “blessed hope…”
I’m still working on a way to get to go with Papa and Grammy when they leave this weekend (if they get to go…)
