The doctor told his patient to stop using a Q-tip, but it went in one ear and out the other.
The sky was already bright as I lifted myself from bed at 7:49 AM. First things first I headed to the garden and to my surprise (Not!) I saw tiny footprints along the brick…Mr Raccoon has been visiting. He is getting smary, he does not rustle the levaes in the trees…he merely eats what had hit the ground. That is OK my me, we do not have to rake it up!
We just piddled around the house in the morning with me finishing off some bills and trying to find out when the property taxes are due. Thanks to the internet they data was at our fingertips.
The 2019-20 Property Tax bills are scheduled to be mailed the last week of September 2019. The first installment will be due November 1, 2019 and will be delinquent if paid after December 10, 2019. The second installment will be due February 1, 2020 and will be delinquent if paid after April 10, 2020.
Off to see Dr. Rucker and he prescribed another breather which I will try for a couple of weeks. We go back to see hime in two weeks. He didn’t seem overly worried. He did however order another ultrasound of the carotid arteries which I will get next week.
Talked to Lisa and we are going to meet her and Pete half-way and celebrate Pete’s birthday on the 1st. We meet at the Sundried Tomato Factory down the street from San Juan Capistrano Mission and have done this for years now.
We departed for Dr. Rucker’s office at 11:00 AM and then went to lunch at Panda Inn, our favorite Chinese eatery. Our supply of left overs is down to a minimum. Perhaps Italian tomorrow?
After that to Coldstone Creamery… I am beginning to feel the effects! Yes…need for beauty sleep! I decided at 4:00 PM to take a short nap so I set Alexa for an hour. She did her duty playing music at 5:00 PM but my ol’ body just wanted to lay there so I stayed in bed for another hour. At 6:00 PM we had to get up as it was time to go to Malarkeys!
The sun had set while we were gabbing so we missed the actual setting set but on out way home, the sun did provide an amazing backdrop against the buildings and palm trees. I stopped the car the hoisted the trusty iPhone to the windownand snapped a picture.
We headed home and watched the start of a new series, recommended by Dr. Rucket. It’s on Amazon Prime and called “Expanse”. Hundreds of years in the future, things are different than what we are used to after humans have colonized the solar system and Mars has become an independent military power. Rising tensions between Earth and Mars have put them on the brink of war. Against this backdrop, a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain come together to investigate the case of a missing young woman. The investigation leads them on a race across the solar system that could expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.
We returned to the medical shows and finally crashed at midnight after our tookies!
