Well, this is going to be posted very early because I have to have it up before noon, when I usually post around 6 p.m. It's all because of the ruse.
Jeri is at my mother's and texted me that my mother wanted to know if I wanted to come down and "hang out with them" today. Well, I'm supposed to take her to the doctor tomorrow and I didn't want to drive down there two days in a row. Also, I'm having lunch with a friend today. It's already been rescheduled once and I didn't want to reschedule again, so I said no.
Then I got another text where Jeri said that my mother's idea had been that I would spend the night. Oh dear....it sounded like she was really lonely, but I really didn't want to go and spend the night. While I was trying to explain that in text, the phone rang and it was my mother, asking me to come down and spend the night.
I was hemming and hawing when she handed the phone to Jeri, who said "see, we thought if you could come down Grandma and I could have our gin and tonics and you'd be the designated driver to take me to the bus stop at night so I can get to the airport." Or words to that effect.
It became very clear. Jeri was worried about my mother driving her into downtown late at night and if I came down, there would be a good excuse for her not to, since my mother won't hear of Jeri taking a bus or cab to the transit bus station. I understood completely. So I'm going to San Rafael so we can avoid my mother having to drive late at night.
In the meantime, since I have no real "content" for this entry, here are the 3 generation pictures from the party on Saturday. We started out at Newman Center with five couples and this is what we have created
Can you tell how much I love all these guys.
