We also played Signs. Our poor guests. They hung around through all this silliness. True friendship is proven by how long you hang out at the DeWitt game night- Especially NOT knowing half the games we played AND the occasional new DeWitt rule that they might have to learn. So with Signs, we sit around in the living room and each of us has a 'sign' that we have. Doug has the flick off the chin sign, Katy is the gun sign, Shannon, the side of the nose touch, etc. One person is again "IT" and stands in the middle of the circle - covers his eyes counting to 10. During this time one person starts the signage (?). He has to do his sign and then someone else's. The second person has to 'accept' their sign and then do another person's sign. On and on. The person in the middle tries to catch the person with the sign that has not passed it off yet. It is easier to learn by doing than by telling. So if you're ever around our home on a Sunday evening, be ready to learn Signs. Here are a few signs that some of us used.

Wow! I look really tired in this video (or maybe old?). Thursday night we had a little scare with Grandpa DeWitt who has been staying with us for a few days. Wednesday night he took a pretty bad fall here in our driveway after walking we had walked Toby around the block. He was in pain Wednesday, but made it through the night and then felt like he needed to get up to Snowflake to see Alan, his doctor. I left here at 7pm and got to Showlow (where the hospital is) around 11:pm. Grandpa's blood pressure was 198/99!! Terribly high!! Alan was a little concerned he might be having heart problems right then. I stayed until 1:30am, then drove into Snowflake to stay at Alan and Linda's home. They weren't sure if dad would need to stay in the hospital, but he didn't and Alan drove him to his home around 3 or 4. All is well now. Dad had a few digestive problems that was wrecking havoc on his whole body and with the fall he went into some kind of 'trauma' or 'shock' thing. Scary to say the least. But he felt fine Friday morning and wanted to get back down to Mesa where he had a granddaughter who was having a birthday party!

Yep, a ladybug. Some of you know that I love ladybugs. I have for as long as I can remember and some of you right now are saying - sure, she's just wanting something to write a blog about, which is true, but I wanted to validate myself and my love of ladybugs so I went digging in my old photos. And your in for a treat. I found one of my favorite outfits that my mom had made. Check it out. This picture was taken at my Uncle Sherman's house in July 1970. Now, I found another one taken with my same favorite outfit: This is at Glen Canyon Dam on our way up to Springville, Utah in July 1971. I guess I didn't grow too much that year, but my hair did! Anyway - I can remember taking this picture. We three girls had just had a fight about something and those two were on the same side of the argument so I had to grab Suzie, the dog, to at least feel like someone was on my side of what ever the quarrel had been about. I think Suzie liked me the most anyway- okay 2nd to Mom - but here's a few pictures to show that fact too. Yeah, who's she sitting by? Trudy and I had to share an avocado. Maybe she thought I'd share with her. No, way....That was a delicacy for us!
