This picture popped up on my facebook feed this morning as a memory of last year. Which reminded me of one of the many things from last summer that I never posted about.
So, this is our parents with their bestest of friends ever. They have been friends since they were kids. Especially Dad and Don. I think they grew up together. Last summer they went on a bus trip, and the bus picked them up in Logansport. My parents asked me to drop them off so that they wouldn't have a car over there all week long. Sure... I could use one more thing to do (wink)! And they had to be there at some unreasonable morning hour like 6:00 am which means I had to leave at 5:00 am.
But back to dropping them off.
After dropping them off, I went to cousin Vickie's house to drop something off...I think maybe donuts from Dan's or something like that. The plan was to just hang them on the door and head to cousin Gloria's house, but no can do! Harley, their dog, went nuts! Not to mention the motion light that went off and lit up their entire back yard! Lights started coming on in their house, so I hung out until someone came to the door.
So I talked Vickie into going with me to cousin Gloria's house! You can see how dark it is outside. It was early...
Yep, Dan's donuts. (it's a Kokomo thing)
We sat and chatted for at least an hour, maybe two!
ACK!!!!No make up! It was early!!!
And as we were leaving her house that day, I saw a spider plant on her porch. I asked her about it. The reason I asked was because I remembered her having a spider plant that she got from our Grandpa's bedroom. He passed in 1992 or 1993? (Gloria will know!) Anyway, ages ago she had given me a start of this spider plant, that was in his bedroom, and I don't even remember what happened to it. But, I asked her for another start.
This would have been my Mom's Dad. And he was all of our Grandpa.
I came home and potted up the starts. All but one are doing quite well.
This one is even quite fertile, as it has baby starts!
(I'm going to name it "Hardy" - teehee)
This one, not doing so well but hanging in there!
Do you have any special plant stories?
