The Rains Seemed To Have Gone Away!

Sue, you were a special gift from the heavens. Your smile warmed my heart, and your presence made me whole. I love you, today and forever!

You never liked bringing attention to yourself, but let a birthday present itself to someone else; you were Johnny on the spot to celebrate.  Here we are celebrating Nick and Zachary’s birthday at Old Ranch with a gang of people in 2013.  You would stand back and cheer everybody. Then you would visit everybody to ensure they were having a good time. You were selfless. Every day of y life, I was so proud to be your loving husband!

We are celebrating Zachary and Nick’s birthday!

Robin, my daughter, stayed with me last night and we were both up at 6:00 AM even though she is on medical and I had nothing planned.  Coffee first!

Talking to Colleen on the Bat Phone

We talked for a while, called Colleen via the Bat Phone and then took a walk around the neighborhood.  We managed about 1.7 miles in an hour so that was not too bad.

We did not want to get too far from home as the clouds were threatening.

I spotted some Floxgloves on our walk.  Digitalis is a drug obtained from the dried leaves of the common foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) and used in medicine to strengthen contractions of the heart muscle.

Amazing what nature provides us form the simplest plants.

We decided to go to the local burger joint and support them but ordering take-out. Where to eat was the questions.  Our cleaning folks were at home and the burger join was pickup only so we headed for the park.

A wonderful place to get outside with no one around!

I ran to the bank on the way home to change some paperwork around.  Then we headed home so we could watch some TV and I worked in the yard for an hour or so.

Time to spread the straw Joe brought me a few weeks ago.  This mulch will keep the weeds out and keep the soil nice and moist event during the long summer months!

I needed to spread the straw mulch in the front vegetable beds.

We took a vote and the Chicken was put off for tonight, the burgers did us in! However, on the second vote, we decided that margaritas would be an excellent substitute.  We each had two and then off to the TV where we binged on “The Ranch” and watched a second movie.

Then we crashed!

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. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
