Tommy came for dinner...

So, I was in the laundry room doing yet another load of laundry when the phone rang. I ignored it figuring it was just another sales call. When to my surprise I heard the answering machine click on and I heard a familiar voice. "Um, this is Tommy, your brother, Troy's brother-in-law. Uh, yea, I was wondering...what's for dinner tonight?" I hightailed it out of that laundry room so fast I almost slid into the kitchen counter. I fumbled around trying to pick up the phone before he hung up! Yep, Tommy was finally coming to town! We have lived here in Idaho for 3 years now, and this would be the first time he's been to our home! He is a truck driver and has the kind of schedule that he never knows where in the country he will be. We haven't seen him since last summer and we really miss him. So it was a WONDERFUL surprise to have him stop by for a few hours to have dinner with us. And of course to do a load of laundry and fill up his coffee thermos!

Love ya little bro...can't wait for you to swing through town again!
