How can I ever thank all of you for the wonderful thoughts and prayers for Jim and I. We’ve certainly needed them this year.
Jim’s leg surgery is scheduled for November 6. Was really hoping it would be sooner but we’ll just be thankful to have it over with. He has an appointment on the 1st for the pre-op stuff.
He feels great because he doesn’t have to walk anymore. That $35 wheelchair is getting a good workout.
Last Thursday we went with Dianna to an RV show over in Glendale. She is now the proud owner of a 2013 North Trail Travel Trailer. We’ll be with her to pick it up this week and Jim will drive it over to her storage area for her. There’s a huge empty parking lot not too far from where she lives so Jim will be giving her some driving lessons.
This morning we went to visit Aunt Happy. She just makes my day. She had bought a new eyebrow pencil but she couldn’t get the plastic off of it so she was really grateful that we were there so Jim could fix it for her. She felt naked without her eyebrows. She was also concerned about whether her powder was on properly and not too thick. I think it’s amazing that at the age of 99 she still wants to look her very best.
She also needed a “man” to explain her answering machine to her. She wasn’t sure how to delete her old messages and she was happy that Jim was there to show her how. She still talks to Jim rather than to me most of the time. I bet she was quite a flirt back in her day.
We had a great discussion with her about politics. She has already voted and was upset with other people in her apartment complex because so many of them just didn’t care enough to vote.
And that wraps up our last few days. Other than going to Church Sunday, we’ve stayed pretty close to home. (Jim hates having to ride in the wheelchair.)
