We awoke this morning to the sound of pouring rain. Lots of pouring ram. The weather report was for more of the same with high, gusting winds. Well, we got one out of two. The rain that is. It never let up until around noon. As for the winds, thankfully we never got more than a wisp. All fine by me. Oh, and the leak at the front window is definitely fixed. Not a drop in that area during the entire rain storm. Yipee!
Unfortunately, we never made church this morning. One thing led to another and before we knew it the hour for worship had come and gone. If all goes as planned hopefully I’ll be up to going next Sunday. Time will tell.
As expected during the storm our Dish service went out. Nothing unusual during times of really bad weather. However, no matter how bad the weather has been in the past the system would make adjustments and eventually the picture would come back. Not this time. No matter what we did we could never get the channels we subscribed to back on the screen. Time to make a call. Less than a minute, maybe two, later we had our answer. They cancelled our service for lack of payment! The problem with that was that we had signed up for automatic payment, they just forgot to note it on our account. Fifteen seconds later and all was well again.
It’s time. Time for knee replacement. We’ll have to be up no later than 5 am and at the hospital by 6:30 am at the latest. Part of me is definitely looking forward to this surgery knowing what the end result will be. The other part of me says Isn’t there a way to get to the desired end without the pain. Ah well as they say no pain no gain. Will I be home tomorrow night? Uncertain at this point in time. One says yes, the other says it depends. It will be what it will be.
This will be the last blog for the next several days. I don’t want to bring the computer to the hospital. I also don’t know when I’ll be up to writing again. As soon as I can sit behind the keyboard I’ll start posting the blog again. Time will tell. Please check back periodically for the next blog post. Hopefully, that won’t be too long.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. An easy day just getting prepared for tomorrow and the days after. We relaxed, watched a couple of football games, some Hallmark movies, and played Mexican Train. Just another wonderful day which we traveled through together enjoying one another’s company.
Thanks again for joining us. We enjoyed your company. Have a great day tomorrow and enjoy the week before you. Remember to live each day with an attitude of gratitude. Live each day to the fullest and enjoy every minute that God gives you to live. I will leave you now for the evening but before I go a thought for each of us to ponder:
As always, if you are coming to the end of your day with concerns and worries, let me suggest that you turn them over to God. After all, He is going to be up all night so why not let him handle them for you.
Time now for our evening prayers and eventually some shut-eye. Till tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before
See you on down the road
