I Heard it Through the Grapevine

This morning I did the deed. No not what you think, but that would have been nice….okay, forget I wrote that…

I stripped the king sized bed down to the mattress. It’s not so bad getting it off, it’s getting it back on that’s the problem. Those fitted mattress covers and sheets are a real pita to put on. Spreadeagled from one corner to the other trying to put the second corner on before it inevitably slips off is an Olympic event even when your legs do work.

I texted my daughter asking for help for the reassembly. They are down in Fort Collins, CO, so it was only a couple of seconds before my grandson (chauffeur, drummer, high school senior, soccer player, Christmas tree put upper and take downer, and all around great guy) texted me, saying I’ll be over right after school. He’ll also take a couple of local payments into businesses for me.

I texted him back asking how did he know, did your mom text you? He said yep. So the grapevine is successful here in old WY.

“I Heard It Through the Grapevine” is a song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for Motown Records in 1966. The first recording of the song to be released was produced by Whitfield for Gladys Knight & the Pips and released as a single in September 1967; it went to number two in the Billboard chart.
