Gloomy Day

It is a very gloomy day today. It isn't much of a day to go out and run errands. Have to use the windshield wipers quite often. What we really need is a good all day and all night soaking rain. You can't enjoy running errands on a day like today. It is more like a good day to stay in and take a nap.

After the Wedding

After my nephew got married in Colorado, they went on their Honeymoon. He chose Jamaica to go to. It was just beautiful there. Nice and warm and a great place to stay. The ocean was right there for swimming or just sunning yourself on the beach. The food was excellent too and they had a great time.

One More Time

I had a knee replaced 2 years ago and suffered with great pain for the whole 2 years. The doctors that did the surgery checked and couldn't fine anything wrong with the new knee. I finally went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mn. for a second oppinion and they said, after careful examination, that the replacement knee was bad and needed to be replaced. In another2 weeks I'll have the surgery to take care of the problem. This time it will be at the Mayo Hospital. The doctor up there said I will have no more pain which is good when you're 75 years old. You can't live in pain every day of the rest of your life. Things are going to get lots better in a month or two. I'm really looking forward to a better painfree life from on.

Halloween Pumpkins

My sisters grandkids all went out to a big pumpkin patch the other day. It was part of a field trip for the pre-school kids. I bet their eyes were big as saucers when they saw all those pumpkins. How do you choose one when there are so many good ones? I guess they each chose one and took them home to carve them. I remember when we did that. Something else I remember was how much fun it was to rake leaves into a big pile in our driveway and drive into them. Then at night my Mom would burn them and she always had marshmallows for us to roast over the fire. Good memories.

Taco Tuesday

Today was Taco Tuesday at Taco Johns. My sister came over and we went there to eat. You can get all the Tacos you want for 69 cents each. My sister likes to change almost every week. Today she got a quesadilla and one to go for supper tonight. I got a super burrito for a change. But their tacos are so very good, I will probably get them next time. The Super Potato Oles are really good too or so my sister tells me. I may have to try them some time.
