Hi Everyone! I thought I would join Amy with Five on Friday today, and try to get a little bit caught up on blogging.
1) I want to thank everyone for their sweet comments on my last post.
I think it's hard to wrap your mind around the fact that you were just talking to someone, just saw that person, and then less than a week later he is gone. His sons and their families both just talked to him the day before he passed. So, Mom and I took some food down to my Sister and her family because they were having other family members stay with them all week. Mom and I split the shopping list. Alcohol was not on the list.
Mom walked out with this....
And I bought a bottle of wine! We couldn't help but laugh as this was not planned at all.
We knew it would come in handy.
They held his "Celebration of Life" on the golf course that he loved playing on. His bucket list included golfing in all 52 States, so I thought this was a very fitting place to have his memorial service.
(the following five pictures were taken from a facebook post on Greg's timeline, by Betsy Reason, a writer for the Noblesville Times)
There were over 300 people in attendance.
One of his sons opened the ceremony...
Afterwards, family and close friends all went to the local bar where he liked to hang out. There were more people there than this, we just couldn't get everyone in the picture. There were tables full of people on both sides of these tables.
Greg also liked to play shuffleboard, so they all took a turn.....
And when I looked over at "his seat" that they had reserved for him, there was popcorn, and this game. Check out the high score. He went by pops.
So long Greg. Until we meet again....
2) Crochet group
These pictures were from a couple of weeks ago.
K will have her afghan done by the next time we meet.
And Cheryl definitely won't!
But we are all moving forward nicely.
These were taken a couple of weeks or so ago.
What is it about these cutouts, when you see them, you just HAVE to have your picture taken in them!
While waiting for your scheduled time to go for a hay wagon ride through the haunted forest, in search of the Headless Horseman, you can spend your time looking at a display of a Bigfoot Habitat...
I, for one, was glad to see this habitat as we have had sightings on our property.
As we were in line for our hayride, strange people were standing around.
4. I love how my parents decorate for every holiday.
I bought a bag today! I didn't need it...I even texted my sister this picture and said
Yes or No
She said I probably already have one like it
I said I didn't
She said when I go home and look at all the purses I have, I could probably have gone on vacation with the money spent on them.
I said, I could go on vacation with a new purse!
I should have texted Vickie instead. She always says yes!
Our new motto is YOLO
You Only Live Once.
I went for it.
I'll go for the vacation too.
I'll do it all.
I'm working on a bucket list.
PS Told ya we've had sightings.....
Don't forget to go to Amy's blog and see what others are up to!
