Stepping Aside

My darling grandma passed this weekend. I'm going out of state to pay my respects....be back next week.

She was spunky and smart and had a FACEBOOK account of all things (at 88 years old) to keep up with the great grandkids....what a gal.


Here's a joke she told me fairly recently (she liked her jokes!)


Two airheads sitting on a park bench in Kansas.

One says to the other, "Which do you think is closer -- Florida or the moon?"


"Helllllooooo,"
says the second, "Can you SEE Florida?!"

Drive safe and remember her, though she sounds difficult to forget if that joke's any hint.
