You all know that Karen has moved to new quarters in Grandville.  Now when I take her out to lunch on alternate Sunday noons I have to find some new eating places.  If you aren’t aware, Grandville is a rather conservative community.  Near where Karen lives is Russes, Rainbow Grill, Grandvilla Restaurant, and each is closed on Sundays.  There are some MacDonalds, Arbeys, Pizza Huts etc. but few nice sit down restaurants.  One is Perkins which we tried today, and maybe next time will try Brann’s, that’s it.  It seemed that half of Granville chose Perkins after church today, but our wait was not too long and Karen seemed to really like the place, so it will probably be ours most of the time.

 Behind Karen was a booth of four dowager type ladies.  I would guess in my age bracket.  I must say there is no way I could have any romantic attachment to any of them.  They just don’t fill the bill.  The major problem is that it is not until the age  gets down around 60 or below that things look interesting.  The further problem is that then I don’t look interesting.  I guess I am doomed (and that ain’t bad) to bachelorhood!!!!


OK here goes, I have two for today.  I saw my foot doctor for periodic toe nail surgery, and saw this vanity plate on his car: TBITL can you figure it out?  I suspect you will.

 Next, there is a lady singer and entrepreneur who has a band and produces many songs for line dancing. Other choreographers make up dances for her songs. This past spring one of my dancers, who also dances in the winter down in Florida,  brought back with her the song and dance, “This Little Light of Mine”. I learned it and have been doing it with all my classes.  The dance is very simple, but the song has a good swinging beat to it. Today as I was leaving the Grandville Senior Center, one of the ladies who works in the kitchen called to me and asked why I dance to that Sunday School song. I told her it was a nice song to dance to.  She asked, “do I think it is appropriate”. I assured her I had no problem with it. Well, she let me know in no uncertain terms that she had a strong resentment to my using it. I am wondering would the Westminister (West) Seminary staff object?


I have always liked Jim Furyk, but today only made me more sure I am right. In second place, two strokes behind the leader, on the 18th green and he lines up his two foot putt the way Camilo does it, and of course to give Camilo the needle,  who was his playing partner.  It was rare, and Camilo really enjoyed it, he was gesturing for Jim to get lower down, but he couldn’t!!!


These are photos of the two different plants. img_0625.JPGimg_0626.JPGThe topsy turvy plant is not doing very well. Partly, I think, because in lowering it and lifting it to water it, I split the main stalk and taped it back together.  Also it doesn’t get as much sun as it probably needs.  Anyway it now has a few tomatoes on it. The picture was taken with the macro setup and the tomatoes are not as large as they may appear in the photo. The other plant is doing great guns, and has a ton of tomatoes on it and nearly ripe now.  I will be giving some away I am sure.
