Saturday started out with a run with the Hubz and then our Saturday bagel tradition. Then we were on our way to meet my parents, grandma, aunt, uncle and cousin for a picnic at Avery’s Gorge. Today is my grandma aka G-Ma’s 79th birthday. She is quite the character and full of stories like the one she was telling us today about her “cougar cousin” who is turning 75 soon and how she has a boyfriend who is 20 years younger.
As we sat down to lunch today everyone was picking there seats and G-Ma was asked if she wanted to sit by the Hubz and her response was “yeah because I’m a cougar”- as I am typing this I realize that the hilariousness may not be coming through to you but my g-ma is pretty conservative, however she has her moments where she throws you off guard like this time (I didn’t even know she knew what a cougar was). Another time she did this was when she got mad at my father at a family gathering because he was picking on her and she jokingly said “i’m going to hit you with a baseball bat” (mind you she is the kindest lady ever and she was joking). Anyways the remainder of the day was filled with us making jokes about her “cougarness” and I am sure just like the baseball comment she won’t be living this one down either.
Lunch today was a tofurky sandwich, salad and bbq “health crackers” aka chips.
After our picnic we headed back to my aunt’s for some cards, raspberry pie, and coffee.
