Friday Is Here Again!

A picture is worth a thousand words, but it uses up three thousand times the memory!

Today was an OK day…we got appointments to see the heart doctor, urologist, and the back doctor so needless to say, next week is full!

With all my heart!

So, I worked in the shop in the morning attempting to fix the garage door magnetic sensor but alas, the damned thing was so small I dropped it, it bounced, and bye bye sensor.  This being 74 sometimes sucks!  So, I went on-line and bought three new sensors…one of them will work and they are big enough that I will not lose it!

Sue teases me about “my shop”…it’s nothing compared to some folks but I have now everything I need and tools to spare! All nicely organized, spare grinding wheels, all bits sharpened and organized, etc.  It is a pleasure to go fix someting now…only if I could see to do it! 

Random Memories:  I remember when I was ten years old, Dad took us to a hardware store and got a set of tools for me.  A hammer, electric drill, brace and bits, screw drivers, pliers, and other things a good “Arkansas Took Kit” would need.  They all fit into a tool box.  To this day, I still have the brace and bits, the tool box, and the electric drill.  Everything else was either lost or wore out after 65 years of use.  I think of my Dad every time I look at the tool box or open the drawer and see the old electric drill.  Oh, what I owuld given to have him come into my shop and show him today’s technology with battery powered saws and grinders, and jig saws and drills.  He owuld certainly be amazed! 

The older I get, the more I miss him and appreciate his wisdom!  Dad passed before Joe was born but I sure would like them to meet for an hour…I think Dad would be proud!

We did in most of Tuesdays Chinese and we have one more meal remaining. Sue has a way of taking the leftovers and freshening them up to taste better than brand new…it’s a gift!

In the afternoon, we watched a movie and I went shopping for goodies at the market…they have the GIANT Blueberries back again.  Guess what? They are from Peru!  Peru is the 4th largest grower of Blueberries i the world.   We, in the US, grow 269,257 tons of Blueberries!

Absolutely delicious…We use them on cereal and ice cream every day!

We are going to miss dancing at the Elks tonight as Sue’s back is not up to the travel and we have a play at Segerstrom Performing Arts Center tomorrow so rest is requited.  We are planning to see “Beautiful” The Carole King Musical”

Tonight we are going to rest but guess what, it is NOT the leaves rustling outside…it’s “raining”…well, kinda sprinkling heavy!  The ground is not yet totally wet (at 7:13PM) but more may be on  the way and we need all we can get! Now (7:32 PM) we are getting thunder and some lightening.

It’s still coming down and occasional flashes of lightening at 11:00 PM.

We got more than expected but we need it all!

We watched some TV and crashed at 11;00 PM after Gilmore Girls and tookies.
