Just chilled most of the day. A very relaxing time. Had a prime rib dinner with Judy and then chatted and watched TV at her place afterwards. Okay, there is one advantage to getting old. I now qualify for the senior citizens "early bird" special discount. Heck, a buck saved is a buck saved.
The daughter received her camera last week and I called to see how she liked it. She that TJ (my grandson #3) said to tell me that he "really" loved me. I guess that means he likes the camera, too. He's 13 1/2 y.o.. She has barely had time to learn how to work it. I told her to let TJ fiddle with it for a bit and he'll know everything about it within 30 minutes, or less.
