Trusting that your body will wake you up at the normal time, you forgo setting the alarm cause it was the weekend…
Amy and Blackie arrived Saturday morning at 8 AM for the craft show to find the house quiet. They had to ring the doorbell several times. Craig came down the steps first. “Good morning come on in, sorry we overslept.”
“That’s ok, I’ll start the coffee pot, Craig,” Amy said.
Blackie went out the door saying, “I’ll get your papers. Take your time.”
“Looks like you two have been busy since I was here. You have wrought iron fencing and the whole back yard looks different Craig,” Amy said.
“Yes, a little project turned into a major one, some of this was done before you were her last, I think.”
Carla came down the steps a little less spry than normal “Good morning,” Carla said. Amy poured a big mug of coffee for everyone.
Craig started to tell Amy about the changes. “Billy, Mary, Tommy, Tim, Mary’s Dad, and Howard helped Carla and I finish our jar harvesting, turned out to be more treasure in the flower bed, which had to be moved in order to get the garage built.” Craig said
rubbing his biceps.
“Howard had to lift those angel statues.”
“You would have had to see it to believe it.” Carla said as she started to laugh. “Hope no one had a video camera on us.”
“Sledge hammers going at angels and stepping stones. “We’ll be right back guys,” Craig said as they went up to change.
The foursome headed out for the craft show, chatting as they drove about all the latest news and gossip since they were together last. Parking the car, they started to walk over to the show stopping in front of the restaurant. “Ok, everyone got their phones on, we’ll meet back here at 1,” Blackie said.
“Let the shopping begin,” Amy said taking Carla’s hand. “This looks
like a real fun day.”
Carla winked at her friend. “Remind me that this is a play day Amy,” Carla said smiling.
“Carla, I can do that. You two have really had a busy and rather rough time since you got married. You my dear are one tough cookie. You’d make a good cop, too.” Amy said
“Oh really, Amy I’ve gone through more tissues in a month than I did all year. Yes, what a challenge it has been! I still am having some nightmares over it. With Craig’s help, I am getting over the rough spots. Ooh scarves,” Carla exclaimed pulling Amy into the booth.
The men headed out to the building and equipment area of the show. “So Craig, what caused all the extra construction and fencing, the invasion?”
