Last week my granddaughter, Shayna,
spent several days with me
before leaving for the beach on Saturday.
It had been a long time since she was here for a stay,
so I really enjoyed having her.
She is a typical teenager, staying up late at night,
and sleeping until afternoon.
One day she tried giving Huey
a very much needed bath…..
but he wanted out of that tub!
We treated her to a Husson's pizza one night,
and went to Captain D's another.
We made a craft that I had picked up at a yard sale.
We painted butterflies red, white and blue,
and decorated the garage and storage building.
John made a birdhouse out of an old mailbox and
we painted it and put it on the garage….
notice the “AIR MAIL”….an idea we got when we
saw one that someone else had made.
One evening we hiked on the hill to see where the
old coal mines had been drained and sealed up….
You can see in the pic below how Shayna
stayed way ahead of us.
When it was time to take her home on Thursday,
I got a little sad....or, I should say a lot sad.

I didn’t take a lot of pictures, shame on me.
But I will share what I did take.

Hope you enjoyed my pics.

Hey Shirley, I'm back. Sounds like a lot of fun. Love your mailbox birdhouse, we have our old mail box that I need to do something with, too. That doesn't look anything like the old coal bank road, next time I'm out there, take me up to look around, OK?

Shirley, The butterflies really look pretty, and I love the birdhouse.
I need to have John around for a few days, seems like he can do about anything.
