They try to see their children several times a year but it's difficult with them way out in California and busy with their professions. The good ole computer is a constant companion. They, too, try to come home occasionally. She's quick to say that her children are the €Best Thing she's ever done' and that they have George's intelligence and her sense of humor! Thank God it wasn't the other way around or they'd be in Deep Trouble!
Their two dogs, Petunia, an almost 10 year old Yorkshire, has recently been diagnosed with diabetes and has cataracts which made her blind in one eye - it seemed all of a sudden. She's beautiful, loving, golden haired, very smart, and knows about five tricks. Buster, a two year old mini miniature schnauzer is the most devoted dog to George they have ever known. He takes him everywhere in the car, to meetings. Looks like they will be the only €grandkids' - at least that they know of!
Lucille receives tons of jokes, news, updates, letters, notices, recipes, knitting patterns, etc, on her computer daily from past guests, old classmates, friends, co-workers, neighbors and responds accordingly. She also loves to play several games on the computer too (but don't tell George!) But most of all, she loves being all in the family.
