Today I received a notice about changes to Blogger. I really wish I understood what the heck they are talking about. I guess if this blog disappears, it will be no great loss. I have had fun doing to and sharing what boring things we do and the odd things that happen once in a while.

So if at the end of June, there is no more rambling, it was fun while it lasted.

It is 98 again here today.

A Lovely Morning -

Followed by ninety-six degrees this afternoon. We ran an errand early (squirrel food.)

Even though Lee's sister can't have visitors in the hospital in New Jersey, she has her iPad and we talk several times a day. She may get "out" tomorrow. I hope so. Thank goodness for technology so we can see each other and talk even when the No Visitor sign is out!

A Late Post for Monday

A day filled with unwelcome news. My Skype buddy is in the hospital in N J with pancreatitus. That must be spelled wrong. Too lazy to look it up. So we didn't communicate except by phone. I think she'll be getting her iPad soon but I was so worn out after a doctor's appointment, I slept from noon till 11:00 p.m. (Not good.)

Missed fixing Lee anything to eat. Luckily he is a good person in the kitchen. When I worked (outside the home) he would cook meals for us! I know he didn't go hungry. And he even asked me, when I finally woke up, if he could fix something for me!  What a guy!

By the way, the doctor told me to keep doing what I'm doing. That's encouraging!

Another Beautiful Day

Eighty-six is pretty warm.  I guess summer is here. We trimmed some branches off the trees that were hanging over the side walk. I pulled them down and Lee lopped them off. We had noticed them some time ago and today a woman walked by and had to duck down.  Time to trim!

We decided on a treat - Ken's pizza - for lunch. I also ordered groceries online so we will pick them up between 5:00 and 6:00. What a great service, temporarily free. After this pandemic is over, it will be $4.95. That is still a bargain.

Later: There are eleven spots for grocery pick-up. All seven on one side of the lot were taken! We have ever seen that before. Luckily one van left so we had a spot on the closer side. Sunday evening must be a popular time to get an order.

Saturday? Already?

The days just fly by with so many naps. We successfully got Jack through his wellness appointment except that I had trimmed his nails the night before but doctor thought they looked way too long (!)

So he trimmed them some more. He said two of them bled but he put powder on them and he'll be ok. Dang! He did this before to Jill. Doesn't he have a trimmer with a guard? I do and I've never cut our dogs' nails and cause them to bleed.  I was really irritated that he did it again.

And yes, he charged us for the trim. It should have been free with an apology to Jack. This sweet, shy dog is so laid back, I'm sure he didn't even protest. Since we had curb service, I was in the car. If I had been in there I think I would have said something - or maybe not. I didn't say anything when he told me outside,

Oh. And he needs his teeth cleaned.

So do I.

Tomorrow we have an errand to do which will involve paying money. We have plenty of cash on hand to just hand them the amount which they are going to charge us. In the checking account we might go below the amount required to keep in the account if we wrote a check.

(Is this clear so far?)

My decision was to use the cash. Someone else had a different opinion. His solution: Drive to the bank, use the drive-through, write a deposit slip, deposit the money, tomorrow write another check.
On my count this is five separate transactions or steps. For my idea, one deal - hand them the money.

Guess which one we did.

Nice Weather

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Middle 70's is great. Too bad I wasted it with a couple of naps.
