It is still way too busy here. That shopping trip with the FIL was a hoot. He got into the scooter and worked it like a champ. We were in Sam's club and you know how there are places here and there where they give away free samples? Well every time the FIL went missing I would find him at one of those areas chatting away with the lady as if he were at a singles bar. He got turned down a lot but as he said "I;m a try harder". He'll be back ladies. Watch yourselves.
Meanwhile I am back to the grindstone. The end result will be a beautiffully polished gem I'm sure. That's where the name came from guys. My initials before marriage were GEM. My Dad wanted them to spell something and he, until I married, called me Gem...his unclaimed jewel....all right now....in unison "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW"
