Op Minus One

“Statistically…. 9 out of 10 injections are in vein.”

This picture is for Colleen and Robin (because they have cats)

Good Morning all, hope your day is starting well. In these neck of the woods, it could not be better. Our son called me at 6:45 AM, and he was waiting at a job site and decided it was time to yak for a while, and we did for 45 minutes! We are proud of Joe and his beautiful bride, Amy!

So, as we yakked, I walked around the back yard, and when I looked up into the fig tree, thinking I must get to trimming it, the Moon appeared framed by white clouds. (You may have to click on the picture to see the Moon easier).

What is it saying to me?

We are blessed to have Robin, Michele, Joe and Colleen, and their spouses! Add the Grandkids and our dear friends, life is lovely!

We decided not to do “Old Guys” today and instead, stick around the house and rest. The “battening of the hatches” has been completed, so come on rain, do your worst!

Got a picture of our littlest great-grandson, Master Remington, who was already grasping as the basics of baseball, at his sister’s softball game!

“I know there is another ball down here somewhere!”

Lunch was a protein delight as I did eggs, ham, bacon, and sausage punctuated with mushrooms!  Sue did the last of the CPK pizza and their smashed pea and barley soup!

Late afternoon was nappy time! Two hours of blissful sleep while I visited the Land of Nod!  Amazing how sleep reinvigorates the body!

Yes, that’s me after my nap!

One last mental pass through the yard revealed I forgot to bring in our new card table.  Dashing toward the ten-foot sliding glass door in the living room, I rescued the table and brought him inside!

Many puzzles with be solved on this little beauty!

We watched a Christmas movie entitled “Second chance Christmas.”  In this Christmas time romantic comedy, Caroline is unhappy in her marriage and makes her way to file for divorce. On the way, an accident occurs. Everything in her love life is about to change, as amnesia is now setting in.

Cute! Heart warmer!

It;s 10:00 PM and we are heading for bed as 5:00 AM comes very early!


About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend.
