Elaine and I met Don and Gladys at the Chinese Restaurant and Mongolian Grill in Lincoln today for lunch. We not only enjoy the food but always have a good visit. We also looked over their recently acquired Chevrolet Equinox with all the “bells and whistles”. Don and Gladys have such a wonderful family that it takes these regular visits to fill in the details from what we see on facebook. We were doubly blessed by having sister Janice and Larry arrive soon after we got home. They will be with us for a couple days , then up to Wisconsin to visit family and back again for a family get-to-gather. As we finished our fried chicken supper this evening we had a phone call from Muffy Vrana who needed a Seward phone number. We had a good visit in the process and learned that Cousin Ted is in a “Memory Care” facility in Lincoln. Muffy is back in their house that experienced significant fire damage back in November. It has been a good “pre-birthday” day.
