Emmy's First Day on the New Job..

I say "new job" because she's gone to work with her Mom  in the Treasury Department of CoBank in Colorado..

And, she did quite well there according to her Performance Evaluation..


So today was no exception.  She folded pedigrees that go into the DNA orders..and she helped set up Tea Time..even got to answer the phone {when her Mom called} using the headset..


The day started out with "chores"..{they don't call it GrammieCamp for nothing..}


But, you can see I do offer more than bread & water....not much, but some..

We went to a buffet tonight and when the cashier {all of about 11 years old..} asked

"how many?" 

" 2 seniors...one 9 year old child and...

1 old fart"

I swear he was looking for the "old fart" button on the register..

Great ending to a great day..

Hope your tomorrow is a good as our is going to be..

What a sweetheart of a grand daughter Colleen, that relationship is so special. I just went shopping with one of mine, and had a very fun time. They grow so fast don't they? Old Fart. That cracks me up!
