Sorry I was MIA for a bit. We headed down to our family cabin over the weekend and then I took Miss Shae to her first day of Kindergarten. Both were phenominal events that I will post about later when I:
a. Stop crying over my baby going to school
b. Get over a woman telling me this morning that her nieces and nephews go to a private school because their mom didn't want them to go to school with Mormons. Really??? What is this the 1960's?? You know we live in Utah? I am still boggled over that one!
Today, I would like to introduce you to my friend Gertrude Bogtrotter. She is a friend I met on Facebook and I have found her so intriguing, that I wanted to introduce you to her. Here is a little information on my new found friend.
I met Gertrude on Facebook last July. She friended me and I had no clue who she was. Here is our conversations via Facebook:
SUZANNE: Gertrude,Thank you for friending me. I see we have a lot of friends in common. However, I need some more specifics as to who you are. Can you help me out please! Thanks! Suzanne
GERTRUDE: suzanne i absolutely adore you and i am extremely saddened that you don't remember me.... for that i don't know if you deserve my friendship
SUZANNE: Wait!!! Hold on! It's comin to me now!! Weren't you Miss Cow Pie of Idaho 1984?? It's coming back to me now. Yes, yes, I happily accept you as my dear friend!
GERTRUDE: i am most definately not! but i would love to be your friend
With that said, this was all the information that I had on Gertrude from her facebook account. Her pic and her information.
September 16, 1949
I would watch my friend Gertrude post random thoughts on Facebook every now and again. Here are some of my favorites of hers:

After those posts, I had to interview the woman. So, I sent her a couple of emails interviewing her and laughed my head off. Want to know what she said?
