My Uncle

My uncle (my dad's youngest brother) who I referenced in the previous post as being so ill that he inspired a possibly supernatural visit from my grandmother passed away this afternoon. I think grandma was really trying to tell me she was here for him. He was in poor health and I'm sure her and grandpa are taking good care of him now.

Grandma, I don't want to be rude, but I've put the top part of that Las Vegas pin in one box and the bottom part in another box. Amateur ghost hunter or not, I'm not ready for you guys to pay me any visits. We'll just chit chat for now, if that's okay with you.

(By the way, I have several funny Uncle Wayne posts on this blog which I'll send you to another time.)

You're going to send to me "another time." Is that like a fourth dimension. Geez, some people.

Sorry to hear about your uncle; I often wonder if our deceased relatives communicate with us when it's time to go. It does sound like grandma's ready to roll the dice again. Probably oughta be prepared to find the pin lit up on the kitchen counter next to a packed suitcase.

Laurie said...

Everybody - Thanks. You guys are sweet.

Our sincerest condolences Laurie. I agree that the Las Vegas pin was a sign and I would take solice in that.

Our thoughts are with you.

Grimm - I feel kind of bad about putting the pin (in separate pieces in separate boxes) away. It's not nice to stifle grandma. I think I'll pull it out.
