Mama OC called me from Mango's place today. She used one of those fancy computer video cams and her bluetooth. She says that it has been TOTALLY cold... more like FREEZING... over there, so she is staying inside mostly on this nice, comfy bed. They have a really nice heating system there, too, instead of only an old wood stove to warm the house.
She said she is being taken care of very nicely and is really enjoying the visit with the other judges. She said that her and Martha and Bailey have been looking online for their formal wear for their judging days, and decided to turn on the live cam and call.
Papa's work has changed their minds again, and got a different truck for him to drive to Florida in. He has to haul one of their HUGE oil testing trailers from California to Florida so that it can take a ship across the ocean. With this different truck, there is a possibility that Grammy will be able to go with him, and they would take Pippin, BG & Gimli with them, since Mama OC isn't here to go too. This just came up this afternoon, and the decision has to be made by tomorrow as he is leaving tomorrow night or early Sunday morning. He will definitely be taking BG and Pippin anyway.
Grammy kind of wants to go because the road goes through Houston, where their daughter lives, and they will probably be able to see them for lunch or dinner, at least, and it ends a few hours drive from where their oldest son lives, so, since he will have a couple of days off around the time Papa has to be there with the truck, he will be able to drive over and visit too, for at least a few hours or maybe overnight. Papa has to have the trailer there one year from the day that Oldest Son's wife passed away last year, and they would both like to be there for him.
A lot of the decision will be if they can find a way to get Grammy all the way up to the cab in that BIG truck with her hip and back problem. They will figure that out when they see the truck tomorrow.
In other news, Grammy and Robert gave the pups their next set of booster shots today. Mercy whined a bit, Gimli kind of yelped and struggled, and Pippin screamed his little head off, and almost wiggled out of Robert's arms! Had me really upset for a while until I finally figured out what was going on.
Well, I'd best go for now. We seem to be having a bit of an uprising among the squirrels AND the coyotes lately. I'll tell you more about that later, though, as I've got to run for now!
