This past weekend we helped our neighbor Barb celebrate her birthday. 

We have gone out to supper for quite a few years to celebrate our birthdays.  Gives us an excuse to get out - otherwise we don't go out to eat very often.  Where we went Friday evening has Bingo.  We played - of course none of us won!   There are about 16 area bars/restraurants that do have Bingo on Fridays and Mondays.  The closest Casino helps to sponsor it.  It sure brings out the people! Barb and I were co-4-H leaders together for many years.  She babysat our youngest daughter, and Jessica is considered one of her many kids, and sister to her boys.  She has been babysitting for so many years; and I can't imagine having a career doing day care.  It takes a VERY SPECIAL person to  do that job!  Bless you Barb and hope you had a Happy Birthday! 

Even tho the school bus driver knew the schedule of when Jessica was suppose to get off the bus at Barbs, Jessica was guilty of telling him to take her to Barbs instead of home!   My mother-in-law was frantic when it was about 5 pm and no Jessica!  But she was safe and sound at Barbs and later got a scolding  after she got home!  However, that wasn't the last time that she tried that.  Every now and then, she decided that it was time that she go to Barbs again!  She claimed "it is more fun there!"  How can you blame a kid for wanting to be where the "fun" is!
