Me and Ma went to visit one of my grandsons today to start spoiling our first great grandson two days old saw him in the hospital but decided we should go check on him i went to the chapter 32 IH collectors convention yesterday and bought him a Farmall T shirt thought he might need it then carried Ma to Texas Roadhouse for dinner arrived at four thirtty got seated at five thirty i'm sure the price of beef will go up when we left around six thirty the manager said they had 173 on the waiting list said they would serve close to one thousand meals tonight i always have the same thing Dallas filet and a sweet tater and that MADE MY DAY.

The simple pleasures in life are often the best.
Glad you had a great day.

I am finally back where I can easily read and post on this forum. It really was a fine convention. Jim had told me ahead of time that he wasn't sure how much time he would be free to come back on Saturday. As I hoped, it worked out and we were able to join each other for the banquet. It made for great conversation to wrap up a fine show.
