The pretty lady to the left is my long time friend Georgia. I don't want to say she is an old friend. Although we have known each other for over 45 years, she is very youthful. Actually, she is one of my "bestest friends". Jeanne Robertson says you can have only one bestest friend; Norma Rose is her bestest friend. I disagree, I have several friends in a class by all by themselves...they are the BESTEST! and CLASSIEST!
Last Thursday, bestest friend Georgia joined Mr. Bruce and me for a little trip to St. Charles, MO with a quick detour in Rolla. We met daughter Jonya and granddaughter Ginny at Panera Bread for coffee and a small baby shower. There was lots of chatting, laughing, and catching up, a real sillysauce time. (The poor MST student trying to study at table beside us. Thank-you young man, you are a true gentleman. I hope you aced the test or paper that you were working on.)
We went on to the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles for an afternoon of fun and excitement in the casino. We agreed to meet in the lobby about 3 pm so we could check into our rooms which led to "where shall we eat and how soon". We went to the buffet, which of course it a good choice and everyone can pick their favorites.
The highlight of the night was getting to meet the marvelous Janice Person. (I have a hilarious story to share at another time about the old folks not being able to figure out the cell phone.) I have been following Janice on Twitter and her blogs for a long time. She is my "personal cotton expert" and my go-to person for Ag questions. I was so excited to meet her in person; I knew she would be nice and super friendly. And patience...she is patience because I always have "one more question".
We chatted like old friends and even let Georgia and Mr. Bruce get a few words in too. Mr. Bruce has said numerous times since, "We have to visit with Janice again; she is one smart woman."
Janice was nice enough to understand I don't like my picture taken, much less put online. I do hope my readers will visit her blog and read all about Ag and the farmers and ranchers who grow our food. Click here to go to "A Colorful Adventure".
Friday morning we did Historic St. Charles. (another story waiting to happen) It was time to head back to Rolla to "meet and greet" Suzy Q, aka Hazellyn Sue. Here is great grandpa Mr. Bruce with our 2-hour-old little sweetie. I know that new mommy Ginny probably didn't feel much like having her picture taken, but I'm glad she let us.
I ask Mr. Bruce what he wanted the baby to call him since great grandpa was too long for a little kid to say. He didn't even have to think about that.
"She can call me Greatest."
