It was drizzling yesterday but very warm. So after a lightening check, I grabbed an umbrella and into the pool I went. Why the umbrella you ask? Well, I had just had my hair cut and washed so I did not want it to get wet and yucky. Makes sense, right!?
The same night I made a something new and it turned out so yummy. Chicken baked with cheese and crunched up Riss Crackers. Everyone loved it and it is so easy to do. After dinner, there was NOTHING left. And the watermelon is a great summer treat with dinner. The watermelon is so sweet right now.
Dave did that job we all hate! Yes, he cleaned out the pantry! Bless his heart! We can see what we have again. Which includes an over abundance of macaroni and cheese, tomato paste, and ketchup.
GUESS WHO IS COMING TOMORROW! Yep, the baby of the family - Ron. We all call him Ronnie.
We have some great plans including going to New Orleans for a day.

We did receive some bad news today. Pat Girtz from Monticello passed away. Pat and Elmer have been good friends of my parents for years. They got to know each other through the woodworking that Elmer and Dad both do. Pat has been ill for sometime but will be so missed by her family and friends. Here is a picture and part of the obituary.
Patricia Ann Girtz, 83, of Monticello, passed away July 23, 2014, at the St. Elizabeth East Hospital in Lafayette. She was born on March 23, 1931, in Coal City, Illinois. Survivors include her husband Elmer E. Girtz of Monticello; children, Catherine "Cathy" (husband Ken) Gross, and David (wife Beth) Gertz, both of Monticello, and Lisa C. (husband Michael) Murtha of Crofton, Maryland; grandchildren, Kyle A. and Kayla E. Girtz, both of Monticello; sister Andrea (husband Lionel) Williamson of Coal City, Illinois.
Pat had a wonderful personality and loved to tell stories of her family, her childhood days, and when she worked overseas.
You are much loved and always remembered, Pat.
Love, Ron, Elaine, Peggy, Dave, and Ron
