Grandma...

That's me, Grandma Shelly, and for those of you that say "you are FAR to young to be a Grandma"...well you are correct. However, I did marry an older man with an adult daughter. She was pregnant with the first kid on our wedding day (14 loooong years ago). Anyway, one of the kids, (she calls him Thing 2 on her blog) and my 93 year old mother-in-law came for a visit this weekend. It was decided that on Saturday, Alan would take Nannie on a long drive to Lake Havasu, and Thing 2 and I would go down to the strip. Alan had previously won two tickets during Monday night football at the local casino to the "Bodies" exhibit at the Luxor, and he had no interest in seeing it so Thing 2 and I went. We both found it to be very fascinating, and I would recommend it. I had to laugh when we were walking through the casino because Thing 2 wanted nothing to do with the cigarette smoke and had his shirt covering his mouth the whole time, there was no way he was going back into a casino because of the smoke. Fine by me, so we walked down to M&M World and checked out all four (yes four) levels. Anything that you could possibly want they have, you could seriously furnish your house with all things M&M. Thing 2 wanted some peanut M&M's (go figure), so they managed to part him from $16 of his own money for a pound and a half of bright blue and red ones (what a racket). We are still enjoying the rest of our visit with them, and Thing 2 spent the better part of Sunday in our little poverty pool, while Nannie soaked up some rays!

Yo, our evil wicked plan has failed.

Ok, our evil wicked JUVENILE plan has failed. Sigh.

What evil and juvenile trick were you trying to play on me?

Okay, I was going to comment about the mass quantities of M&M's purchased, but I'm now I stuck on the penis thing. You obviously went to the Bodies exhibit. A lot of penis there.

I saw that exhibit when it was here in Cincinnati...my youngest daughter just walked right through it w/her dad--no interest whatsoever. My oldest went through & studied everything w/very few "eeww, gross's". Glad you're having fun w/your guests!

BTW--Katy & Yo, what was the plan? To embarrass us? It will take more than a penis...but perhaps I won't tell you HOW much more since that could actually happen seeing as how we will all be together very soon...

Penis. Whats that? Wait I do remember what they look like. I reread Shelly's blog thinking she typed penis instead of peanuts. Duh
I am glad that nannie and thing 2 had a good time. I sit that warm for the poverty pool?
