Things need to be said about John Linger. We all know how well he cares for our sister, Kathleen and our neice and nephew, Courtney and Matthew. While Kathleen was vacationing in Florida with us, John was at home tending to household duties. Kathleen told me that it was John who suggested that the use of the beachhouse be for a ladies trip, instead of a trip that would have included him. We had a lot of fun at John's insistance.
Tonight I got a call from John and Kathleen, but mostly John. John wanted to wager a bet on the upcoming Texan/Cowboys pre-season football game. However, Kathleen informed me that this was not the real reason for the call. John was miffed over the knighting of his brother-in-law, Vaughn, in Leah's latest blog entry. I believe there is some sibling rivalry going on there. John should realize that we all think very highly of him. He is a very sweet man who has made our sister a very happy woman and no knighting or lack thereof could or would ever change that. What I really think is funny is that he enlists the assistance of his bleeding heart liberal sister-in-law to come to the rescue.
In an unrelated matter. I had a very interesting day on Thursday. I went to work early to allow time for a dental appointment I had to keep in the afternoon. Our group went out to lunch to celebrate two co-worker's anniversaries. We had a lovely time at Saltgrass Restaurant in Mesquite. After work, the crew was going to go to On The Border to bid farewell to another co-worker who had taken a job in a central office. It was thought by all that I would go to my dental appointment and high tail it back to Mesquite for the partying and drinking. After the extraction, the only place I wanted to be was home. I had to change bloody gauzes several times during the evening and spent most of the evening with an ice pack on my cheek. Also, I began taking pain killers as soon as the novocain had worn off. I am sure I will hear all about the evening when I return to work on Monday.
The Puff chair I bought in Florida arrived today. It is as nice as I remembered it.
Some of the more poetically talented members of our family should write an ode to John Linger.Posted by Rita at August 13, 2004 07:16 PM
