A Visit From Kathy

          Kathy Davis (Frances' Nairobi Daughter) has been here again!  This time she left husband Rob at home so she and "Mama Frankie" were at their leisure to do whatever their hearts desired.  It's amazing the differences between what the guys consider fun and what the girls consider fun.  These two worked themselves hard from daylight to well past dark every day for a week.  They shopped, they cooked, they painted, they made banana pudding, they preserved peaches, etc. and etc. until I thought they would drop from exhaustion.  But they were together, laughing and playing and both talking at the same time - and answering each other.  If I asked one of them a question both would answer me without realizing that the other one was talking.  Ha.

Thanks Kathy!  For being such a great friend.  You are truly "one of a kind"!

I think I would be exhausted just watching these two. But they obviously got a lot done. I'm glad they had fun doing it.

How long did she stay? Gosh, they even remodeled the bathroom!!! Seems they were very in sync with each other, and probably that no matter what they would do, they will have fun!

Thanks for giving me that link. Well, the leaders of your church and my church have been meeting, I didn't know that. I just read it and it was very interesting!

How wonderful for the both of you to have Kathy visit. By the look on Frances face ~ it sure looks like she was having fun! It always is more fun doing things with others ... it just makes the time fly when you are visiting while doing it.

Our get togethers are always noisy affairs and most times will include family sing-alongs. The children love their Mom's cooking so we have the privilege of seeing them regularly! WE LOVE having them over.
