I am overwhelmed by the response to my last post. I know many of you have faced or are facing those same feelings. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you.
For really doing nothing we sure have been busy. Let’s see if I can get caught up with myself.
We checked on my sister’s park model and were overjoyed to find there were no signs of termites this year. We played cribbage with friends here in the park. We went to visit Aunt Happy again and took her to get a flu shot at Walgreens.
Taking a 100 year old person to Walgreens is quite an experience. First of all, we have a 4x4 truck that she has to get into. We had been using a little red stool to help her in but Jan and Bill had bought us a bigger, little bit higher white stool that I love. We took that one and when Happy came out to the truck she noticed right off the bat that we had a different stool and found this one much easier to use.
We took her to Walgreens and I always enjoy the reactions of people when they find out she is 100. I filled out the paperwork for her which she really appreciated and we got her shot taken care of. It had been a long while since she had gotten out and wanted to wander around the store. She moves very slowly now with her walker so we just let her lead the way. She did have some yogurt covered pretzels that just jumped into her basket. She was wore out when we got done at the store so we took her home to take a nap.
Jim hasn’t been able to go fishing because the lake he fishes is located in a National Forest, which of course was shut down for a long, long time. So what does a fisherperson do when they can’t fish, they take apart the boat motor.
Something is wrong with this part. I think it has something to do with the starter.
He also fixed one of our favorite meals – chicken wings on the grill with steamed veggies.
We also celebrated Marv’s birthday here in the park and probably 40 people showed up. I forgot the camera but we had a fantastic feed.
We saw Jim’s dermatologist on Thursday and had good news from her – no more big serious skin cancer issues. We still have his internist and his heart doctor to see and then hopefully we’re done for awhile.
Have a great week and for all of you on the road, I hope your weather cooperates and you have a safe journey.
