Sissyfriss and Lou Lou are going to the beach


Sissyfriss and Lou Lou came by for a visit last night!

I had not seen Sissyfriss Sockmonkey and Lou Lou Skiptoo since February. Remember - they dropped by out of the blue - during an ice storm, no less.




They ended up hanging around, we drank some wine




Then I noticed Lou Lou and Sissy were off having what appeared to be a serious chat




Then Sissy had what can only be called a bit of a crying jag




Then they both passed out.





The next morning they had decided to quit drinking.

and we had a book give-away.  that was fun.

But then they put on their snowshoes and trundled on down the mountain back to Auntie Coo Coo's house.  We've chatted a few times since, but we hadn't seen one another.

If you'll remember, the story was that Sissyfriss and Mr. Sockmonkey were experiencing some marital discord. For awhile after that things were better, but they're on the outs again. Mr. Sockmonkey just can't seem to get his act together, and Sissyfriss, as much as she loves him, gets a little weary of his childishness and has to take a break every now and then.

And Lou Lou is always there for her.

During our visit  last night we started talking about our upcoming vacation.   Sissy and Lou Lou asked if we wanted them to stay at our house while we were gone, but we've already got that covered.  Then we decided it would be fun for them to come to the beach with us, and they agreed!  Yay!  It's going to be TOO fun!  and don't you know we will have stories to tell.

They were still up jabbering about the trip when we went to bed.  Last I heard they were talking about where they were going shopping today to buy new bathing suits.

Stay tuned . . .

Can't wait to see how the adventure progresses! Love the watermelon earrings.

Mason, apparently, the bathing suit shopping did not go well. (Well, does it ever?!).

Those watermelon earbobs are classy, aren't they, Jill?!

I only got a brief little synopsis of the shopping trip, which - as you can guess - was a bit of an adventure for these two drama queens.

I'll fill you in a little later!

If you're stopping by here to wish Kaye a great vacation, I just wanted to drop in and let you know Donald had a heart attack. He's making good progress, and cracking jokes, but he and Kaye could use good thoughts and prayers. I'm sure she'll be back soon, as classy and sassy as ever.
