I had an opportunity to go to my home town for a high school class get together.  So I went and visited my sister too.  I helped her with her computer.  I love her dog and her dog was so happy to see me.  We had tea after the luncheon.  It was a good day all around.  The weather has been wonderful this Fall.

Gas Prices

Saturday I drove down near Des Moines.  I saw several stations selling gas cheaper than we have at home.  But most of the stations were as high if not higher.  The gas has been rising fast and hope it is about done.  I stopped at a little town on the way home.  I knew they usually have gas cheaper than we have here at home.  I was right so I filled up and that will last me for awhile.  I don't like to let the tank get down to half as it really costs to fill then.  It was below half this time but I was happy to get gas at a lower charge.

Pizza for Lunch

My brother is coming over today.  We are going out to the Pizza Ranch for their delicious buffet.  He does not get over here much and really loves pizza.  I know he is really looking forward to it.  He usually eats too much and is full for the rest of the day. It is a beautiful sunny day.  It is only 55 now but supposed to get up to 70's so will be really nice.  Looking forward to a good visit with him.

Open House

Today I am going to an Open House at retirement apartments that my son-in-law manages.  They are very nice apartments and you can have a garage too if you wish.  He also manages duplex apartments for retirees.  It is great for those who have reached the age where they don't wish to take care of a big house anymore.  No more lawn mowing or snow removal either.  Everything is taken care of for you including a delicious hot meal every noon.  There are also arrangements for people with low income to adjust their rent. I think it is just great.

Vacation Fun

Here you see some of the family having a wonderful time on vacation. They went to Great Wolf Lodge in the Dells. I have never been there but it looks like a wonderful family place. They just love the indoor water park and there are so many other things to do as well. Always lots of good food and everyone loves that too.

First Day of PreSchool

It was the first day of preschool today for our great granddaughter. She had been to the Open House last week and has been so excited ever since. She will be 5 in November so she was raring to go to school. She would like to go everyday but I think they go 3 days a week. I am excited to get over to see her and have her tell me about her exciting day. I heard she was pretty excited about it and wanted to again tomorrow but has to wait till Friday so maybe it is 2 days a week.
