Blackout Lily first bloom but not the surprise.
When I got to Church, I saw John Ray Bailey talking to a stranger. Wait, that's no stranger, that's my Knee Baby. (You know what a knee baby is: that's the baby standing at your knee when you have another baby on your lap.)
During the service, I suddenly realized that Glenn was wearing blue jeans. Well, he is from The Beach, they dress less formally. Our members aren't all that dressed up usually, either, except for the preacher and the deacons. Outside I learned he was riding a motorcycle.
During the sermon, Preacher mentioned that his Mama always asked if he was hungry and further said that Mamas always asked and fed their grown children when they visited. I tried to focus on the sermon without worrying about what we might eat.
Afterwards, Glenn said he was hungry and asked if I wanted to go to town to eat. "Everybody and his Mother will be eating out today," I said. He laughed. We went home.
We had boiled shrimp for supper last night. Once home, I boiled some eggs, chopped the shrimp and some onion and other crunchy things and made a quick shrimp salad from 2 cups of leftover shrimp I'd had forethought to peel last night.
For dessert, we ate animal crackers and a York peppermint patty.
That is Buffy the Dog's Wonderwoman Blankie lying by the driveway.
