What a Day

We spent four hours at the hospital ER this morning - 1 a.m. till 5 a.m.  Home just in time to watch morning tv. I slept till 10:30.

Nothing serious, just painful for my husband.  Old age calls for many compromises!

Free Bar

This was last Friday's Freebie from our local store. A delicious, however small, Ghirardelli milk chocolate caramel tasty treat.

I do love free stuff.

A New Day!

I woke up feeling as good as I ever do! The sleeping must have helped.

It's still hot. We are eight inches below the normal precipitation for the year. Not much snow over the winter and very little rain.

I am enjoying putting up photos of our town on facebook's site, "Kansas Phtography 2.0."  My mother-in-law used to make fun of me taking pictures of buildings. I really took more of people and the family but I now have a lot of things recorded that are no longer here -  like buildings and people.

This is the Kirk Building, built in 1920 and was the former home of the motor car company. My dad bought all his Hudsons there. It was exciting to ride to the upper floors on an elevator large enough to hold a car.

A Lost Saturday

Woke up feeling "not good."

Spent most of the day sleeping.

Feeling better tonight.  Hope for a better day tomorrow.

Free Stuff

We tried the drink that the store offered free a few weeks ago on Friday. Lee said it tasted like medicine.

I thought it was because we had just tried a Swedish Fish which was free last week.

Nope. It even smells like medicine when left in a glass. Wonder if it does impart energy?

The fish are gummies and not as tough as some.

This week it's a Ghiradelli Chocolate bar.  I'll get that one for sure!

This morning was the time for several errands. So we were out b 8:15 hoping to finish before it got too hot.

The clinic, Walmart and the grocery store. Something has happened to my lower back. I have no trouble sitting but moving around and getting in and out of the car is not so great. So I drove and Lee did all the getting in and out of the van.

At the grocers, we needed two things. He went in and fifty-five minutes later he came out with a mucho number of bags.  I was seriously thinking about calling the police or an ambulance to see if he was ok. No, not really. But at least calling the store and asking if anyone in there had passed out in an aisle.

It was starting to get warm (!) and if there had not been a little breeze,  I would have had to go inside.

That heat will get ya!

Finally - The Roof is Done

The workers left about 3:30. I felt so bad for them having to work on that hot roof for four days. I guess they might be used to it. Each day there was a big cooler delivered by the company full of water bottles.

Now we wait for the billing!

Later in the day somebody wanted a hamburger. I think the wait from 8:25 till 8:45 was a new record. There are two drives into the window and it was a long wait. The car in front of us, a BMW SUV, left in a huff before he reached the paying spot. So when they verified our order, it was, "A diet coke and three cookies?"  Nope. A cheeseburger and small fries. I don't know how they keep it straight anyway unless there are cameras at the ordering spot.

Another lovely ninety-three degree days in the books.
