Fact: The circulatory system is more than 60,000 miles long! According to the Franklin Institute, if a child’s entire circulatory system—we’re talking veins, arteries, and capillaries—were laid out flat, it would stretch for more than 60,000 miles. By the time we reach adulthood, our bodies have become home to approximately 100,000 miles of blood vessels.
BTW, I have lost six pounds since the first of January; 208.1 this morning. Sawdust is beginning to taste good! BURP!
We went to PT at 8:30 AM and returned home via the bank and Rockwell’s. We shared a veggie omelet, and I went off the diet and did a side of bacon!
On the way home, Mary checked Facebook, and my daughter Colleen has been busy! Her sense of humor is much like ours!
We worked around the house, finishing off the Valentine’s Day tree before going on two errands and then to the dentist!
Into the car again, and we stopped at Jan’s to drop off some goodies to eat and then to Dr. Annie’s,s where I got fitted for a crown. Apparently, after 77 years, my old tooth ion back was starting to split, and the crown will protect it.
We then headed to The Fish Company in Los Alamitos, where we had dinner at about 4:30 PM. Mary did her rainbow trout while I polished off a great swordfish! We went there because we had to see Vicky and pick up some Starlighter’s items since we will be the official greeters at the door this weekend. Of course, we picked up a dozen oysters for Vicky, and she was happy as a little school girl!
We also picked up two pints of clam chowder, which we delivered on the way home. First, we went to Costa Mesa to see Bill and bring him a surprise birthday cake, a mess of MAry’s secret beans, and tonight’s dinner (clam chowder). We did not visit long as we had to get home.
The second drop-off was at Dianne and David’s; David loves the Fish Companies chowder. We did a fly-by, and then we set out for home. We were gone a long time but our housekeeper, Domilita, made sure Scout was taken out and did his business.
