Slow Day… Sad Day…

First things first… Off to Cerritos Performing Arts Center to buy this years tickets for their performances.  $9,000 and we were done.  Now we wait until late July to get the tickets and distribute to our friends.

While returning home, we called the GG Elks to assure our associate membership was renewed and it was not!  We headed to GG to visit the office and take care of that issue.  While we were there we had lunch at the Elks.  Sue did their Cream of Potato soup while Paul did “The Californian” beef dip sandwich!  Excellent food and good friends.

Our favorite waitress at the GG Elks…

After returning home Paul worked in the garden getting the old corn back into shape and picking some tomatoes.

Around 4:45 PM we headed to Old Ranch to await the grand kids arrival but alas, they got busy with life! We stayed until about 5:45 PM and then went to Kobe for some sushi surprises.  Many, the sushi chef, knows Paul well and fixes him SMALL portions of the sashimi/sushi.  That way Paul can try many things and not get stuffed.

Many surprises Paul with delicious small portions

At 6:00 PM we returned to Old Ranch to make sure our friends were OK.

We are going to loose Ernie in the next few days as her Pulmonary Fibrosis had taken over the lung and she cannot breath anymore.  She was tired of living that way.  The plug will be pulled tomorrow morning with the family in attendance and Bunny, Dave O, Terri,  among others, were pretty sad. RIP Ernie (1936-2017), you had a good run!

Did You Know: Pulmonary fibrosis occurs when lung tissue becomes scarred or damaged. The stiff, thickened tissue obstructs the free passage of oxygen through the walls of the lungs’ tiny air sacs (alveoli) into the bloodstream. As the disease progresses, patients with pulmonary fibrosis feel more short of breath over time. After an early diagnosis, it is generally fatal in 3-5 years.

Ernestine Schulte RIP (1936-2017)

We returned home, watched a little TV and Sue turned in about 9:30 PM, it was an emotional day.  Paul worked on the computer for another couple of hours and then 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.
