I had my alarm set for 7:00 am.....and I pushed 'Snooze' 3 times before I finally got up!
Today was the day for my annual checkup! You know the one - where they weigh you and ask you all sorts of funny questions! As - 'Do you feel safe in your home?' The questions changed after I turned 65. We received a bill Monday from Louis Dean's primary care doctor for failure to keep an appointment. PLUS the co pay! I gave it to him to deal with as I was busy! I heard him talk to the billing department and he explained that his doctor said Medicare would pay for an appointment about aging. He told her then that he would not go! He further explained that he is old and he KNOWS he is old - but went on to say that he lives an active life and told about shoveling 3,00 pounds of sand and wheel barreling it to the back yard to the HUGE sand box! The billing department told him to disregard the bill!
I love my doctor! Doctor Suma Abraham and I have been seeing her for the 19 years she has been in practice! She told me she still remembers my first visit and has kept up with my life over the years as I have hers.
I absolutely LOVE that last sentence!!!
I gave her a tin of my Angel Graham Bars and then took a tin to my urologist, Dr. Bloom.
He called me later this afternoon to thank me for the goodies!
I have said it before and I say it again, it is so good to have doctors who treat you as real people.
That may mean that WE need to treat THEM the same way!
From my doctor appointment I drove straight over to Quadville because I left my iPad there yesterday! Amber had a great salad lunch all made and ready and we ate as we settled down to watch a TV program. THEN the school called to say that Harrison was on the playground during recess and a pebble had accidentally been kicked and landed in his right nostril! Amber immediately blew out the candle, turned off the TV and we arrived at the school before recess was over. No worries! Harrison said that he BLEW the pebble out!! We drove back to Quadville, aborted our program and she went back to work and I drove home!
Look what I saw in my back yard!!!
Baker Tree Service had arrived to take care of the diseased branches that Louis Dean was so afraid would fall and hurt someone!
This guy was a graceful dancer in the limbs of that tree!
WHAT a great company this is!
Local. Reliable. trustworthy. Reasonably priced. Friendly.
As they left, James asked me, "Do y'all ever stop working??"
Not often! I told him the only time I stop is when we are down at my stepson's ranch.
But Louis Dean often works down there, too!!
By the time they left, Louis Dean was loading windows into his truck to take to the ranch for the closing in of the 31 foot deck!
He knows how to do things!!
My friend, Dee, sent me some cool packing things that will help our windows arrive in good condition! Thank you, Dee, if you are reading this!!
After the crew left and we finished our chores, we celebrated with a glass of wine in the gazebo!
LD was waxing eloquent!!
Hello, Baby!! This is the Big Bopper speaking!
That's how he would answer the phone when I would call him back in our dating days!
While they were all working in the back yard, I worked on the front porch!
I took down some 'dead' strands of lights and replaced them and then added 10 garlands of 'debris.'
Little lights and pretty things make me happy.
I hope to live among fairy lights and sparkles for the rest of my days!!
