Catching Up!

This photo of my Son and I and our Brides belongs with the August 8th post The Member-Guest Tourney. Dan sent me the photo from his camera.

This was at the end of our Friday night 9-Hole Scramble. We found out that there was a nice prize for being in last place. In the 'Having Fun Department'... we came in 1st. A Purple Ribbon.
************Last Thursday night Marilyn and I forgot to lock the door and who should pop in but the lovely Char and that guy she's been sleeping with.

They stopped again last night on their way back through. We got two too short visits from them but it's always fun if even for a short time. I'm pretty sure Ralph will fill you in about their great adventure. He has a month's worth of blogs in his head from this trip. I'm looking forward to it.
Ralph and I understand each other pretty well. I was up in the pre-dawn hours this morning, and I knew Ralph and Char wanted to leave early so when I heard Ralph coming downstairs I got up from my computer and met him in the darkened hallway. Without a smile from either one of us I said "Marilyn and I talked last night after you two went to bed and we think it's time for you two to leave." Also without a smile he replied, "We'll eat breakfast and leave, will that be soon enough?" I said "That will be just right." They did.
I hope they come back soon.

Hi Cliff,

I liked seeing the pictures of all you folks! I enjoy blogging more when I know the folks better! :)


Paul said...

Hey, what are friends for anyway, Cliff? I think you did the right thing "guiding" Ralph early like that.

(I'm going to have to remember this comment when I attend Blogstock '08. Don't want to leave to soon.)

How nice that Char and that guy she's been sleeping with stopped in. That's what happens when you leave the door unlocked!!

I'll be looking forward to his posts about his trip and visit.

Great picture of the golfing couples!! Good looking family there Cliff!!

You forgot to mention that breakfast was REALLY, REALLY good.

Ha! :) .... nothin', but nothin' beats good friends.

Rachel said...

Did you happen to discuss Blogstock and possible dates?????

Jamie Dawn said...

LOVE the photo of the golfing foursome! :-)
The Having Fun Award is about the only award I could win.

Ralph and Char are good friends which means you never mind them dropping by for short or long visits.
Being comfortable with friends is so great. When I was in CA, our bestest friends ever came over to my parents' for dinner, and we picked up like no time had passed at all. I hadn't seen them in nearly three years!! It was wonderful to hug them and talk and laugh. Good friends are priceless.

ha ha your too darn funny, you should have just given them a pop tart and sent them on their way!! lol

seriously though it is very nice when friends stop by even if it is only for a short time.

Jim said...

Yeah, what about Blogstock and possible dates?????

Jerry said...

I think you may have had more luck with the golf if you played during the day. It looks mighty dark out there.

Glad you had another great visit with the Campbells. It helps that Ralph wasn't there long enough to wreck any of your equipment.

Peter said...

You could almost play that round with Stevie Wonder at that venue Cliff, Just pick a night.

Lee said...

It sounds like you all had a marvellous, fun time, but all this sleeping around is a bit of a worry! ;)

Kendra Lynn said...

Hi Cliff:
Hope all is well...sorry I haven't been around much.

I always enjoy the simple charm of your posts. (I still think it's cool how you and Ralph reconnected.)

I hope all is well in your end of Nebraska. Been thinking of you.

gel said...

oh, and I still love the idea of Blogstock on July 4th weekend, please!!! It's a guaranteed time GEM and I, and maybe Sapphire, can come!(unless you're inviting us for Thankgiving...yum!!! ;)
