AJ, AZ – Actually the weather has really been cooperating. It’s been in the 90s for most of this month with the nights in the 60s which makes for good sleeping. However – starting later this week, we’re headed to the triple digits again. Definitely time to leave.
Jim had his second eye done and this eye healed even faster than the first one did. He is really glad he had the cataracts removed. His far vision is great and even though he may need a prescription for reading glasses, he is doing just fine with the ones from the dollar store. That means that I have set the date for our departure from the valley as June 3. His final eye appointment is May 31.
We said our goodbyes to Aunt Happy. She will be 105 in August and her doctor is amazed at how healthy she is. Her hearing is terrible but we’re still able to talk to her. She is now the oldest resident in her Senior Living complex.
UPDATE: I got a call from the hospital that Aunt Happy had become very dehydrated and they admitted her. They also found she had a blood clot in her lung. After talking with the nurse this morning (Happy is the oldest patient she has ever taken care of in over 20 years of nursing), she is on a heparin drip and responding well.
One of the best things about being here in AJ so late in the season is the fact that everyone is gone. You can find a place to park at Walmart and there are no lines at the restaurants. We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast on our 32nd anniversary. We’ve also been out to dinner with friends a couple of times. No crowds. Love it.
Seems so strange to see him without glasses.
Can you see the cougar in the picture below? This is a picture of the Superstition Mountains taken when we were coming home from Church on Brown Road. Seeing the shadow only happens a few times a year. There have been other pictures of this on FB that are much better than mine. Just Google Superstition Mountains Shadow
Jim and Rocky took the boat out for one last fishing trip. The boat is now tucked away for the summer. Jim’s list is all ticked off except for the things that have to be done at the last minute.
