Abby, Alex and Becca came over this afternoon to wrap presents for all the little cousins in Texas and Virginia. Abby & Alex wrapped and Becca taped everything. So a big job took a short time with everyone helping. After cookies (mint chocolate oreos - our favorite), we decided to try and find a movie. Well we did and with a huge bag of popcorn and a large drink to share, spent a couple of hours watching Planet 51. The kids loved it and I got to take short naps. On leaving, we all had to hit the restroom but as it was crowded, I dropped them off at a restaurant in the area and then, we hastened over to Friendly's for a bite to eat. They finally made it home around 7:30. They all gave me hugs and kisses and told me what a great time they had AND when can we do it again! It was a great day for me as well and look forward to the next time.
Grandpop always claimed that we had Poltergeists lurking in our house on Trenton Avenue. His one example was about a book that fell from the bookcase. He was in the kitchen drinking coffee and heard a thump. On investigating, found a book on the floor in the middle of the room. The bookcase was back against the wall. So claimed a "mischievous spirit" did the dirty deed.
His "friendly spirit" was up to no good and visited me last night. I woke up at 3:30 listening to the printer barfing page after page to the floor. I let it run its course and started collecting seven pages of print - all on Jonas Cattell! So, do you think Jonas is trying to tell us something? Or maybe it was Grandpop, disguised as a Poltergeist encouraging us to continue our research!
