I drove to my daughter’s house in Ocean Springs today. My son-in-law grilled the family hamburgers and we had a grand evening together. There were a few family members here besides us. I missed the rain and storms that were predicted by the weather people, and had an introspective drive down. However, I understand the storms are in North Mississippi now. I ate at the Waffle House in Vicksburg, and stopped at the Watermelon Patch, a giant shoe store on Highway 49, in between Jackson and Hattiesburg. I was playing a hunch that I’d find Christmas presents. I didn’t. Tonight, I’ve been playing with my grandson, and watching him jump on the bed like a little monkey this very moment. Tomorrow will be spent in eating, drinking indulgence, but Friday I’ll have to get right to work early.
