When we spotted Rose come walking under the maple tree, we were both excited. A surprise visit from Uncle Neil and his lovelier half! Emil had just been wishing aloud that he could arrange a visit with Neil and was going to phone him.
The coffee pot went on and we jibbered and jabbered for an hour and Rose and I looked at the flowers and then it was time to go.
|Emil is quite fond of Uncle Neil.|
|Neil was getting a goodbye kiss.|
|Rose gave me strict orders not to put a picture of her on Facebook.|
She went home with half a dozen oriental poppies, and later I dropped off the same number — delphiniums this time — at Rita's.
|I asked Everett to take some pictures on the way to her place.|
|Rita lives in an old train station.|
Next: Emil gets his chicken dinner.
Then the double-layer cake; the two of them knocked off half of it at first sit-down.
|Emil wishes his dad a happy Father's Day.|
