Greg and Tom spent their day in construction..getting drains cleared and, wonder of wonders....found !! We had a drain, we knew where it started but we had no idea where (or even if it did) drain and they found it and it works !. Bring on the rain now,...we are ready. Tom leaves us on Monday, we have enjoyed his stay with us and hopefully he has new experiences and good memories of the time he was part of our team.
I had another visit to the doctor yesterday...a 20 minute trip down the road that I have done a hundred times (well, it seems like it !). I believe my Guardian Angel gave me a gentle prod to take my GPS with me and scornfully I told myself that even I couldn't get lost on this trip. Wrong !!! I know that my sense of direction is seriously challenged..actually, I dont think I have one but getting lost going to the doctor was not even a consideration. Confidently I set off, happily in the sunshine I tootled down the road, country music on the radio and dinner menu on my mind.. .then..disaster. I saw the blue and red lights, between the Faith Hill and egg and bacon ommlette I recognised that someone was having a bad day, a very bad day and I felt sorry for him / her at that moment but it wasn't long before I went into feeling sorry for myself. We got diverted off my road, the only road I know.....into the forest on a little and ( to me) totally unknown road and my Guardian Angel said "told you so !!" and I wished so bad that I had listened and that my GPS wasn't still sitting in her box in my closet. Something told me follow the line of traffic ... after all, they were going my way. All went well ( I think) until we came to a junction in the road, one car went one way, the other went the other...which way do I go ? My destination was Purdy.....I came back via Port orchard( about 10 miles from where I wanted to be.) From now on, my GPS is going to be as much a part of me as my purse !
The good news is...I got to my appointment with moments to spare, the bad news is, i'm falling to pieces but thats another story. Time to shake these old bones, check on the chicks and get ready for another day. Take care. M .
