Lulu - Marylou - Carl - and I had a nice weekend. They were our first new overnight guests.
On Thursday the last skid of sod was laid on the lawn of our new home - just in time for our Friday visitors - Carl and Marylou Zimmerman. Carl is really my cousin - but Lulu and Marylou were the closest of friends in Tamaqua. Their kids were the same age and they just progressed up the ladder - play group - school sports - college graduation - marriage - and grandkids.
Our sod got a real challenge. Friday while Carl and Marylou were driving from their snowbird home near Tampa - Tallahassee had hours of deluge. I never saw such rain since we have been here. Even though the water was flowing in sheets - the sod held - and no erosion. I had to greet Carl and Marylou with umbrellas.
