Lily came to see Pop and Grandma Ellis and while she was shy at first, she warmed up pretty quickly and took Pop's heart away. He is very enamoured with his Great granddaughter and has no qualms about letting every one know it. I think she returned his admiration too. She seemed to be a bit partial to Pop over an old Grandma! I can forgive that as I am kinda partial to Pop also.

March 14th Birthdays

It's our birthday today,
Now isn't that fine-
We were born and live under
The pieces sign.
We have good qualities,
A few bad ones too
We're loving and generous
When we feel it's due.
We're loyal to family,
Through thick and through thin-
We dearly hate losing
And we love to win!
We are children of March,
We are honest and true-
And we kick up our heels
When our birthday is due!

Winter In Sherman

In early February we had a substantial snowstorm. The Renaissance looked very beautiful from inside, but outside it was colder than crap. After a week of this, Pop had cabin fever and I asked him where he wanted to go. He replied "just any place!" Well, we don't usually go any place as I told him. His remark was "I want to be able to whether I actually go or not!" All and all, we all enjoyed the sight of new fallen snow, even though half our workers couldn't get here and service was slow and the menu limited...but always with a smile.
