We spend another marvelous evening at the Shank residence. Christy made her famous to-die-for salsa using fresh vegetables they grow in their garden, Katie made an Apple Pie that Grammy taught her how to make, and I made some Fudge Pie. The Ladies Meeting was there tonight, so after dinner, we went down the street to get Katie and Shannon McClay so they could come along. Once we picked them up, our next stop was to get Grammy. This is only the third time that I've met Grammy, but around here, everybody calls her Grammy. I believe that she is related to the McClays, but I don't know for sure. :)

Katie was supposed to know how to get to her house, so once we all were settled, we asked her how to get there. She said she wasn't exactly sure, but asked if we knew how to get to the Rite Aid. Mrs. Chancey said that she knew where the one off of 44 was, and Katie said to go there and she would remember the rest once she saw some landmarks. So we get to the Rite Aid and she tells us to take a right. After doing so, she says, "Oh wait...this is they way to piano lessons! We are supposed to go the other way. So we turn around, call Mrs. McClay (who doesn't answer her phone) start driving around and then we call Mr. Shank, who says, "Well I don't know, but I could show you if I was driving." :) He told us to find the Ace Hardware store and it would be the first right at that intersection. So we finally get there, and take a right, and Katie says it is the other way. So we turn around, and just a few houses down, was Grammy's house. Mrs. Chancey said she wouldn't be surprised when Grammy says, "I wasn't planning on going." Shannon ran in to get her, and when Grammy came out, she said, "Well, thanks for picking me up! I wasn't planning on doing anything tonight!" :)

All in all, we had a delightful time. The Shanks are such wonderful, down to earth, blessed people. They sent us home with more fresh tomatoes! Oh, how I'm going to miss those! :(
