My MacBook Pro is back from the Apple hospital. So far so good, but it will take awhile for me to get back to engaging in computer time.
Saturday, Dec. 29, our Christmas celebration eased to an enjoyable end. Hubby and I, along with oldest son, our daughter-in-law and their youngsters, breakfasted at McElroy’s on the Bayou.
Youngest son and family had departed the morning before as work responsibilities beckoned. Even though they were not physically with us, I savored the knowledge that they love the McElroy’s breakfast tradition as much as the rest of us do.
We ended our leisurely breakfast with the Georgia Fab Four posing underneath a little oval plaque. It marks the level of Katrina’s storm surge that filled the Ocean Springs, Mississippi, restaurant August 29, 2005.
Grands pose underwater, at least under where water was.
Still below Katrina’s storm surge level
Then they were on their way home to Georgia, and I was sopping up tears. Baboo and I returned to a quiet house and collapsed for awhile before we started preparing for the arrival the next day of my brother and his family from Virginia who helped us welcome the new year with love and laughter.
