I got up early this morning because I wanted to get things ready for the kids to come over to see their Grandpa.  I fed the cat, changed her box, fed the dogs, and, at 6 a.m. stepped outside to take a walk.  There was a van parked in my driveway.  My Dad's van. He couldn't sleep well at the motel, so he came on to my house.  I have NO idea how he managed to find the house.  But he did.  Do you think Scooter-dog was excited to have company?

Dad and I walked around the block together, we got my hubby out of bed, enjoyed a little coffee, unloaded the van, and by 8:00 a.m he was gone.

A little disappointed here that the boys won't get to see him, but I understand his desire to get back home and avoid as much traffic as possible by driving through Atlanta and St. Louis on a Sunday.
He brought this picture down from Uncle Benny's house in Warsaw, Missouri along with my Grandmother's dresser.  I received instruction from Ben on where the portrait of my Grandfather goes.  I am happy to have it exactly where my Grandmother kept it.
The dresser looks lovely against the plantation pink walls of the guest bedroom. Now if I could just find a guest that would stay long enough to sleep here!

Scooter looks ready to wiggle out of her skin with excitement! That's a lovely painting and the dresser is gorgeous.

Your Dad and mine must be kindred souls, my Dad would do exactly as yours, quick visit and leave, I could never entice him to stay as long as I wanted him too. Love the dresser! Best, Ani (who just caught up reading several blogs!)
