Kathy, the vist at Bills' DD was good, but I'm sure very tiring for her. It takes about 1 1/2 hrs to get there, its north of us. When we got there we rang the door bell and no one came. Bill went around to the back and the sliding door wasn't locked so he went in. We heard a what sounded like a big dog barking so I told him don't go all the way in. Then we saw her through another set of sliding door on her scooter. She opened the door and told us to come in, the dog was a big friendly yellow lab. He was so sweet, only a year old and huge! Anyway she is very bad off, arms and legs are only bones with skin on them. She cannot move her legs at all and is just able to run her scooter. She has a terrible time trying to talk loud enough so we could hear her. She sat right next to me and I tried to figure out what she was saying and tell Bill. Bill is hard of hearing and could not hear her at all. I couldn't make out some of the words either, very sad. She is home alone all day, every day, no nurse or anyone comes to check on her. She has a telephone hanging on her scooter handlebars, but if she fell off she would not be able to reach it. We told her she should have one of those first alert things you hang around your neck. Her son did come in around 3:30 and she asked him to move her legs off of the scooter to strech them out. We both felt so sorry for her, I really don't know how much longer she can last.
Yesterday had zumba again, then met friend Lee and we went up to the Fresh Market again. Got some nice ground sirloin and a port tenderloin in their beautiful meat department. Also got 2 bottles of Moscato d'Asti. I had gotten a bottle last time and it was so good, this time I got 2! It's a sparkling Moscato and very tasty. Also stopped at a couple of different plant nurserys and got a few more perennials. I did get some of them planted yesterday, only have some petunial left, but that will require some digging to get the spot ready. So glad we finally got some rain last night, boy did we ever need it!
Too bad about the Bocce being rained out, seems like when ever there is something scheduled for evening, is it apt to rain! You are right, with all this heat you would think a few pounds would be sweated off, but for me, no, it hasn't happened. But a zumba today a gal came that hadn't been there since Feb and told me, you look great. I'm not sure what she was referring to, my hair, my weight or my grass cutting tan, lol.
Janetz, we used to have another member but she got too busy in her work and had to drop out, so there is plenty of room for you or anyone else who wants to come in and share some of their daily challenges, weight loss or otherwise.
Update on the house, gal who was buying it has now added her finance to the contract and they are going for a conventional mortgage instead of VA or FHA as it will be easier to get. Thanks for the prayers...they are always welcome. Hope the boss is easier on you today
