A funny story about Gram

A few months ago, while Gram Pam was here we invited Manny over for brunch one weekend... He came over shaking a tambourine, and carrying a champagne bottle... He had a BIG crush on Gram Pam... We had champagne with sliced peaches in the glasses that day with brunch... Manny had been a bartender at the Racquet Club in Palm Springs for many years... back in the day...
[Which was a Wednesday by the way LOL]

Manny was a Marine too... and whenever he came over he arm wrestled the boys... Manny always won...
[even at 83... I think he had some grip trick going...]

So anyway...

I told the balloon story to Gram Pam...

she said "I dont care... I am getting to the bottom of the Manny thing when I get there"

[she is coming today for the weekend]


I said "You don't believe that balloon was Manny?"

she said "No..."

Then I said "But Pam the balloon had a tambourine on it, with a champagne bottle attached..."

She was in shock for a second thinking I was serious...

"Really?"

"YES...AND... it tried to arm wrestle me" now she realized I was joking...

She laughed...


Jeepers... the things he would have had to do to send her a sign... YIKES!!!

No wonder he sent ME the balloon!

I think it is a stretch to believe that the balloon had anything to do with Manny.
