This past Sunday may have been a BBQ dinner to celebrate Father’s Day but it was also a great day for this mom and grandmother as well!
My daughter, Bobbie and her partner, Virgil hosted a picnic at their new home north of Shelton and a great time was had by all—no one more than me. We enjoyed barbequed chicken with all the trimmings and everything was delicious. Bobbie invited her granddaughter, Carly with her mom, Jenn and her little sister, Lilly to come out and join us for dinner. It was wonderful to see Jenn again after being out of touch for more than a year. She looks great and continues to be gainfully employed at the same company where she has worked for several years. Being a single mom, keeping her head above water is tough for Jenn but it was wonderful to find out she is happy and still fighting the good fight! I remember well when I was alone with two little kids (many, many years ago) and my heart is full of praise and respect for her.
Virgil and Bobbie have been working very hard to develop and expand the grounds around their new house and the effort is paying off. Very soon it will look like a well-groomed park. Because he is a self-employed contractor, a large workshop for Virgil will be constructed in the near future. RV hookups are also in the plan so we can park Penny on their property next summer. Inside projects are “on hold” until winter but nonetheless, they have created a cozy and comfortable home that is a pleasure to visit. I am very proud of them!
