Good evening all. Had to go to the foot doctor the other day. My middle toe on my right foot was bothering me and I was concerned about it. He say I had a blister on it and took care of it. Also looked at the one that had a ingrown toe on the left foot and it's much better now. Got measured for my new pair of shoes and will get them next week. They're really pretty and have flowers on them. I can't wait to try them shoes, on. They're tennis shoes of course or as the foot doctor says Athletic Shoes. LOL!!! Weather here is much cooler the past few days only in the 70's and 50's at night. I'm enjoying it.

Napped 15 minutes, and Chipper pawed at my recliner. I basically ignored him, so he barked that sharp bark that says I need to go out NOW! So, I got up, and took him out. He did have to go. Came back in, napped for 20 minutes, and we went through the routine again. I got up, and took him down the sidewalk. Came back, and sat out on the patio for about an hour with him. Chipper was then content, and we came inside.

Lightfoot, I hope you get your elastic socks.

I did almost nothing today.
Tomorrow my daughter, grandson, granddaughter and I leave for South Carolina.
Wish us safe travel.
As an aside, I think I'm weary of the NFL fiasco. I have no love for football, so what they do is of little interest to me. Of course that is today. Next week, I may change my mind.

I'll watch college football, but no more nfl. (Lower case intentionally)

Chipper's brother's name was Frankie. Chipper is 10.

Took Chipper to the Sports Complex this morning. Walked 2400 paces (Yes, I counted them.), and at 30 inches a step, that works out to 6000 feet, or a little over a mile. Got back to the car, and poured him some cool water. He laid down and drank some! This afternoon, I took him for a walk down the sidewalk here, along the road- another mile or so. I talked to him about Mary, and how we used to walk the two of them.

Well, today is October first. You know what that means- tomorrow is October second, I guess.
I'm sitting here, getting caught up on my emails. Received a reply from my Seester. I'd sent her an email, asking when she, her husband, and my Mom would be returning from their trip to South Dakota. She told me that They'll be home October 6, and that 'Mom went to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, a Black Hills Gold factory (where she bought a ring and a watch). We stopped at the Corn Palace on the way out. We are going to take a ride through Custer State Park and visit Wall drug.' These are places we visited as a family back in the early 60's.
I guess I won't be going to my Mom's today. I didn't go there last Sunday either, as it was packing day for the trip. My Mom wasn't sure back then, if she wanted to go, but I'm glad my Sister talked her into going, and my Mom probably is glad too.

The temperature here is only 42, so I'll finish breakfast and take a shower. Hopefully, the sun will have warmed things up enough that I can take Chipper for a walk. Other than that, I have no plans for the rest of the day...yet.
Have a good day all!

Took Chipper for two walks today- a morning walk on the boardwalk, and an afternoon walk along the sidewalk out here. I also was able to go get myself a maple nut soft serve ice cream. Watched a Barney Miller episode ( I love that show!), and watched a movie called Crimson Tide, which was about a nuclear submarine about to fire nuclear missiles at Russia. It was made in 1995, and a young First Officer stages a mutiny, to prevent his trigger happy Captain from launching his missiles. Can relate it to our present situation with North Korea.

2:30 this morning, I heard the crash of Dawn falling. She was up, but her medicine caused her to fall, twice! Then, being bull headed like she is, she insisted on going to the kitchen for a glass of water, which she never got, because she fell a third time- her foot had fallen asleep. After making sure she was okay, I helped her back into bed, and she went right back to sleep, but I didn't, and neither did Chipper. I went in and checked on her a couple times, and Chipper's by her right now.

Wow! Tell Dawn I am praying for her!

My day yesterday was visitation at the nursing home, then a churh friend in the hospital, then Marie and I went to eat Chinese at a new resturant! It was very good! Afterward to Aldis.

Our Aldis is remodeling their store (for about 6 weeks now). This Sunday they will close down temporailay for another 6 weeks. I will miss it but know it will be a better shopping experience when it reopens.

The third lady that goes each Tuesday is visiting her daughter in CA until the 13th. Her daughter is in stage 4 cancer so if you would please pray for her. Thank you.

We are in need of rain here. A NO Burn order is in affect.

Speaking of Aldis, our just reopened for business on Monday here. They were closed for 6 weeks also. Grand opening is tomorrow, Oct 6th. Tomorrow if my mom lived she would have been 97 years old , on Oct 6th. I sure do miss her dearly.
My youngest son Jason called me last night. He was driving to work and a deer came out of nowhere and did damage to his car. He is okay but shook up from it. Called the sheriff office and they came out and looked for the deer but couldn't find it. Took pictures of the car and he posted it on Facebook. The front end of the drivers side is really damaged but he got the car home and called the insurance company. He is still paying on the car but he say if it is totaled he will take it as a loss and since he has another car he will be fine. So he told me he was going back to work. All I wanted to know , was he okay and he say Yes. Scared me that's for sure. I wasn't ready for this either. Also went to get my medicine at the pharmacy yesterday, doctor ordered me a pill for my cough I had. I had went there on Tuesday because I hadn't felt good and had a cough and was sneezing. She say I had allergies and start of bronchitis. Wonderful. I got a nice surprise from the pharmacy, our Health Insurance didn't cover the medicine for my cough which was 30 dollars, the pharmacies got it down to 8 dollars but a lower strength of medicine and have to take 3 pills , 3 times a day. I called the health insurance company, AARP, United Health Insurance today and let them know I was upset. All they did was say I'm so sorry. They say you could have called us and we would have told you if we pay for that medicine or not. So I say, so you want me to call you and ask you, while I'm in the doctor office if you guys will pay for the medicine or not? That's nuts. She kept apologizing to me and I say maybe I should look for another Health Insurance Company? I also say we pay for Health Insurance every month is it really worth it? She say I'm so sorry, I say I had

Consequently, I overslept a bit this morning, got a late start, ran Dawn to the bank and store this morning, before she left at 11:15 for her weekend getaway. Then, I took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk,put gas in my car, got myself a treat, and came home. That's my day so far.

Sorry about the email LLF. Sometimes life can send us a rough time. I know that feeling myself. The other day my oldest son Chris called and say he couldn't get his blood sugar down and was going to see the doctor yesterday. It seems he filled out the wrong paper work for DHS and they say he was suppose to pay 10 dollars a month for his blood sugar medicine and didn't. He went 3 weeks without it. But it was worried he might have to take insult but he is okay and got his AIC down. But now he has lost his cell phone. As for me I'm resting up for the Election Polls again on Tues for city council and mayor race. Have to be there at 6 am till after 8 pm. Got a ride there already to. Still trying to get over a bit of whatever I got , doctor says allergies and start of bronchitis. Wonderful.

After that, I plan on driving over to the pharmacy, where I'll pick up prescriptions for Dawn and me, go to Family Dollar for a card, and some peach flavored drink mix to put in my tea, since I have cut out the Mountain Dew, except for an occasional treat, and then stop by the bank to check on a transaction I made at Payless shoes on 10/6.

It seems not everyone had a perfect week in my absence.
I had a wonderful trip to S.C. , with family a few days, the first leg of the journey back was fun as we twisted and turned on a Rattlesnake road, uphill, downhill between highway 40 and Hot Springs on highway 70 . Later in Richmond, Kentucky stopping at a Days Inn, in rain, we learn that a popular football game and a Car race had filled EVERY motel in Kentucky. 4 adults were forced to sleep in an SUV. My daughter simply couldn't continue driving on dark 75 in pouring rain. The following day proved more promising as we managed to find a lovely motel manageress who let us into a room at 3:00 P.M. Monday was a lovely day to finish the trip.

Then came today. Our washing machine began leaking. Remove machine, clean up, off to ABC to purchase a new washing machine, which will be installed tomorrow morning.

I had a busy day today. Nursing home ministry this morning. Then a bit of shopping at the thrift stores. Then to Rulers (owned by Kroger) for a few groceries. Aldis is really remodeling big time and won't open back up until the middle of Nov right before Thanksgiving. Rulers is ok but not as good as Aldis. After that my friend and I went to Burger King then she had appointment at the dermatologist. She will stop the chemo cream on her nose and her forehead and now begin each side of her face for three weeks. The biospy from her right ear and left wrist came back with cancer so now she will have to have surgery on the ear next Monday and the arm 10 days later. I have been worried about her ear for a couple of months now. She had a good size not on that ear. If her sons can't go with her on Monday I told her I would go along to give her support. The surgery on her ear will take up to three hours and the place on her arm just about 20 mins. Marie is in her late 70's and would do anything for you so I want to be there for her if she needs me. Requesting prayer for her please.

Tomorrow I will stay home and do several loads of laundry and clean the house. Then midweek Bible study tomorrow night.

Also, I couldn't see the entry on Google Earth street-view, so I wanted to find it today, rather than have to spend time looking for it on the day of her appointment.

Today, we took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk, up into town, around the old bank, back down to the riverfront, and then to the library. Then, we drove to Rite Aid, and to Save a Lot.
Tonight, when I did a power cycle on my modem, router, and computer, I lost power to my computer. The power switch did nothing. I checked my power strips, and all my components. Even replaced my power cord. Then I found I had no power to my monitor. Then, a flicker of light appeared in my brain. Touched the on switch on my monitor- worked fine, so I checked the master power switch on the back of my computer, and I had inadvertently bumped that, and turned it off, when removing the power cord. Turned that on, hit the other power switch on the front of my computer, and I had power!
Then, while hooking up the mouse and keyboard, the computer booted into my user account, so I restarted it, and booted into my admin account, which I use all the time, and I was good to go!
