Here's my reason

I haven't blogged in a week. My computer crashed so I had to buy another. The hubs hooked all the cords up to the back and moi got us online. I am now using picassa, thank you my fab friend downunder, Lizzy. No pics today, having an "interesting time" downloading in a new format, yadda, yadda. But I have to tell you why I may need bail money next Monday!

Every Monday I go to her house where we quilt, lie to each other and just generally be girlfriends. We do have a wee space in our ages, but we fellowship just fine. She "gets" me and I "get" her. My bff is 83, the one I am making the paperdoll quilt for.

We were sitting in her expansive sewing room today, sewing along, when she said she needed to go into the next room and write something down for her grocery list. She waits for one of her daughters to come every Wednesday, most months anyway, to take her to Wallyworld to shop. She did make the comment that it pretty well sucks to be her and depend on her daughter to take her shopping.

This is the conversation:

Me: so you only go shopping every Wednesday?
Bff: yes, unless I want to brave the roads to drive to Walmart on my own.
Me: how about if I come over next Monday am and take you into Dallas, we go to Krogers, we do a bit of shopping then go to this killer Chinese buffet. Heck, if we aren't careful, we might hit Hooters too!
Bff: oh, Hooters, I heard about that place.
Me: yep, the girls have big hooters but they say the chicken wings are yummo.
Bff: well, I think I need to see that.
Me: cool.

So here's the deal. When is the last time you took your grandmother to Hooters? And yes, I am taking my camera and buying her THE t-shirt! Could be fun...wanna go with us?


  1. I wish I lived nearby so I could go with ya'll. I love to spent time with my elders....
    I had two older friends that I used to take on adventures. They were so much fun. One of them passed away but I still see her 96 year old sister. Neither of them ever married. they were teachers for 40 years.
    I used to bring them into New Orleans. They loved to go to the French quarter. I would walk between them to help them cross the street...both using canes. I miss Marion and hope that I can take Annie out on an adventure soon.

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun! Hope the weather is good for you.

  3. I wanna come to hoooters with you girlfriend...!!! and I'm glad Picassa is working for you....
    Take care my Texan friend..

  4. I would love to share that adventure with you and your friend. I have never been to Hooters but the chicken wings sound real tasty. I am 79 so I qualify as one of the elders who loves a new adventure.
