Online friends...comin' to town!

I just got the good news yesterday that Lois 'n Hank Greboski are coming to Mayberry in July! Bee and Sarge are excited, too, since we were all together on the Carnival Blogger's Cruise last February and know each other rather well. They can only stay one night, darn it, so there'll be some serious talking, eating, laughing, eating, picture taking going on...and cake of course for Empress Bee. Oh yes, y'all will be hearing about that get together for sure.

This is a busy week for me, getting stuff together for the annual meeting of all the folks at our RV park on Saturday, where food will factor in at the top of the list! And I am busy with grandkids here and there, a meeting at church Thursday, a sorority committe meeting here tonight (Joy, don't forget!)...all the normal stuff that is part of my life. Oh yes, and lots of paperwork thrown into the mix. I am known as Queen of the Office...hmmm, where did that tiara go? I should be wearing it when I sit here and work! Or should I wear it when I play? I'm not sure of the exact protocol on that one. Wait...I'm Queen, I can do both if I want to! And where are the Royal Servants? They've been slacking off again and need to be fired! Tsk, tsk. Parker and Missy are poor substitutes in the servant department. They were caught lying on top of my filing pile last night, keeping the papers warm. I guess they don't like to file any more than I do. They've mastered the kitty door, but are not doing so well on their ABCs.

And my serious news is a summons for jury duty next month, but that'll be over by the time Lois 'n Hank get here. It is in civil court, so maybe the folks will settle and I won't even have to serve. I have been on a couple of juries before (civil and criminal) and certainly don't mind doing my civic duty, it is just that with all our traveling, I am always fearful the summons is gonna arrive and mess up some fun plans...and that would make me mighty unhappy!

I hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday, whatever you are doing! It looks like I'm gonna be filing, copying, stapling, and working on billing all day! Fun...NOT!!!

OK, just don't send me any bills! Can't wait to see the Bloggers reunion. You'll all be wearing tiaras, I assume. I'm sure Miss Bee brought hers to Podunk... never leave the palace without it!

Joy said...

I won't forget! See you at 6. And I hope to meet Lois 'n Hank, too, even if I'm not a blogger - I'm a commenter! :-)

Sandy, it is ON my calendar, I will save that date. Bee, I'm a dedicated blog reader so I'll enjoy meeting everyone - and surely we will get together for lunch or cake or something before then! Hugs, Joy

Lois Grebowski said...

I can't wait! We want to meet your friend, Joy, too!

Wear your tiara to court, as well. I think the judge will be impressed

the donG said...

wow! this sounds great. never tried doing this but there are bloggers here who meet often. in my case, i only met some other bloggers once. so far.

Loving Annie said...

The paperwork will be done soon !

that'll be so nice for you to see your friends, even if it is only for one night. Hope the jury duty doesn't get in the way !

Sandy B & Dick said...

Sandee, you are invited!

Dong, you can join us, but it is a loooong way from Manilla!

Lois, thanks for the tiara suggestion. I should have thought of that!!!

No, Annie, the jury duty won't get in the way. I called and they said it would be for that week ONLY! Come join us for the blogging party!!!

If you are QUEEN you should NOT be doing all of these things...the servants are for that!!
Do you have a campground? We have a motorhome which we do not get to use much because of hubby's work. we are leaving In August to go to Illinois and taking the camper!! There are so many great places to see here in Georgia. I just wish that we could go. Sandy

Sandy B & Dick said...

Yes, Sandy, we own a campground! I'll send you the details.
