Saturday night, Bob's sisters, Karla and Diane came over to see the new sprinkling system he has set up to water the flower beds in the back yard. This also gave them the chance to see Andy before he leaves. His nephew, Curt and wife Brenda stopped by later in the evening. In the pictures you see Bob, Karla and Diane talking about flowers, Diane and Andy trying to take a picture of a bee, Andy Brenda and Curt laughing, and Curt tormenting poor Cleo. (He actually tried to be nice to her, but those of you that know her, realize she is a "snooty" cat!) There were many ideas for new flower beds for Bob and irrigation ideas for Karla and Diane. There were also plenty of laughs. We were going over what Andy would be doing in basic training, and Karla's ideas didn't always mesh with reality! She is a good sport and laughed with the rest of us. It was also nice to see Curt and Brenda. Brenda is very sweet. You may notice I did not say that about Curt. I'm sorry to say that Curt is not sweet. (He probably wouldn't want to be) He has teased and harrassed me his whole life, so I don't expect him to change now. We have warned Brenda that she is going to be in trouble when any future children arrive! (He is a great guy, in spite of his teasing!) We had a fun night and Andy enjoyed seeing them all again and will be happy to see them in December.
