I liked hearing about your critters. I visited Oklahoma about 20 odd years ago. It was the first time I ever saw a red squirrel...it was so cute. I never knew before then, that they came in red! All we have are gray.I arose this morning at six-thirty, my usual getting up time. I step on the scales and they are heavy. Thought I’d weigh light this morning. Had a plate of fruit with a slice of nutty toast and hot tea last night. It is that heavy, chewy bread, no doubt. Or maybe this is a normal good weight for me.
I bought a bicycle a while back. I wanted some wheels in case my drivers license is not renewed next month. I thought I could ride it. After all we don’t forget how to ride a bike, do we?
We replaced our microwave that sits on a shelf in front of our kitchen window with an over the stove microwave. The shelf one works well but we had an over the stove model before the kids got the shelf model for us.
I have a walker with a cracked wheel brace that could easily be repaired it seems. But I don’t do that anymore. Maybe I should throw it away, but where would I haul it off to? We have some other this and thats in the garage we no longer us but disposing of things is a problem.
My wife took her walker and went on her normal walk yesterday evening. She stopped and talked to a neighbor down the street. She told him about the walker with the damaged brace, the bicycle I was foolish enough to buy, and the microwave oven she replaced for her convenience. She gave them to him to use, to sell, to give away or whatever. He said he would pick them up shortly which of course will solve our problem.
Out my window the birds are feeding on the seed I left out for them. Mr and Mrs Redbird, the Cardinals always show up early. The doves are usually next, both the mourning doves and the ringneck doves. Then follow the sparrows and finches. The bluebirds are unpredictable. Sometime they are early to breakfast, sometime they show up later in the day. This morning two crows dined in my back yard. I also have squirrels who come here to feed, and Saturday a cottontail rabbit joined in. When we first moved here a few years ago raccoons roamed the neighborhood and kept eating the goldfish in my neighbor’s pool. I suppose the raccoons moved to a more lucrative area.
It’s still early. My plains are flexible today. I may read some. I have several library books checked out, a couple of kindle books I’m reading on. One book my wife checked out and read and wanted me to look at, a large book, hard to hold but does look interesting. Its title, You Staying Young, the owners manual for Extending Your Warranty. It is written by a couple of doctors. I’ll look it over and if nothing else it will give us something. I’ve had a good morning so far. I hope you have too.
Oh no! My prayers and good thoughts are sent to him. Please update us when you can, Drifter?Wife's youngest brother, a life long hunter and fisherman, who keeps our freezer stocked with frozen
Filets, has been in Southern California hunting the past eight days. He has a prior history of not breathing well in high elevations. Today the thin air apparently got to him. He had sharp pains in his backand was taken to the closest hospital with an apparent heart attack. He was flown to Denver in critical condition. A nephew is with until his wife from Eastland, Texas to Denver. All we can do is hope for the best.
Drifter, I never knew the difference between a diary and a journal. I thought they were the same thing . So, I take it a diary discloses more personal information.Dear Diary, I'm not sure how to communicate with you. You see I've never kept a diary, too personal. Wouldn't know how. I have kept journals.
Don't give up. Just don't cook them so long. Did you broil, pan fry or grill?We had ethe steaks. Inedible. They were well, well done. Cooked all the posture out of them
Last time I'm buying stealks to cook at home. The salad was good.
