It's the weekend!

Good afternoon everyone. Happy Friday to you all.
The day started off really dreary here but the sun came out around noon and it warmed up nicely. The clouds interrupt the sun from time to time but it's been a nice day for the most part.
I did sleep in this morning, not as long as I would have liked, but anything past 5am is sleeping in for me. I got up around 7, took a shower and crawled back into bed for awhile to watch Good Morning America. As soon as the rain stopped I headed to the grocery store. Rations were done to almost emergency status...I was out of milk, eggs, coffee and toilet paper. The milk, eggs and coffee I could do without, but ya can't go without toilet paper!
I ran into Betty, one of the librarians in town. She and I used to have a blast on the class trips when our kids were in grade school. I think the Principal would cringe every time she saw our names on the chaperone list together. You know when you go to the Zoo, and animals being animals and all they don't care who was watching when they got busy with their mates...well they always seemed to take care of their business while OUR groups were approaching. It was always hysterical for us but not so funny trying to answer the questions of 7 and 8 year olds...the best one was when one of the little girls commented on how nice it was that one was giving the other a piggy back, and a very well informed 8 year old piped up with, "He's not getting a piggy back, he's humping her." That young man had been watching the Discovery Channel. LOL
Anyway, it was awesome to see her and nice to catch up. And yes we did have another chuckle about that field trip.
My phone has been busy today. Looks like everyone knows I am at home. I got an invite for dinner at my friend Sue's so I am going to head down there in a few minutes. One of those rare evenings when her kids and grandkids have gone out...I asked her if she is sure she wants company, maybe she wants to just enjoy the peace and quiet, and she said "NO WAY..I want to talk to someone who isn't going to pee their pants and ask me to cut up their food." Well hell...I can't promise that! LOL She is bribing me with apple crisp for dessert, and I can't pass that up. I will try to be on my best behavior.
Hope you all had a good Friday.
Til next time

LMAO at the 8 yr old boy! Every time I go to the zoo, the animals are never doing anything. Will you take me to the zoo?

I'm glad you got to spend some time with your friend, even if the grandkids did come home and send you home early.
