Morning Mates, it's Monday already, boy that weekend went too fast!
Had a good day yesterday, there was a special ceremony held at the Hector Quay, attended by various dignitaries from local, provincial and federal government, to announce big money being given to promote the Tall Ships coming to small Nova Scotia ports this summer, and to help The Ship Hector site upgrade and improve certain areas. Good news for all of us who volunteer there, some much needed repairs will now be done!
Today it's back to work, only 2 weeks left before school ends for the summer....now if summer would just make an appearance.
Good morning Rd and those who follow. We are getting a much needed rain shower today. Things were really getting dry so this will help all the farmers around here.
I can't put into words about how great our weekend was. We left here on Friday morning heading for Renfro Valley, Ky. We met up with 2 couples from Columbus, Oh. all of us arriving around 3:30 pm. Had a wonderful dinner together just laughing and enjoying the friendship. Then the highlight of the weekend, for me at least. My very favorite country entertainer, Neal McCoy, was preforming. I had gotten our tickets the day they went on sale, 2nd row! As usual he did an amazing job. He has a new song called
A-OK so I had a special shirt made just for this show. Neal came down into the audience and when he saw the shirt he stopped, shook my hand and told me he liked my shirt! I melted. I managed to take around 150 pictures, some good, some not so good. At the end of the show Neal did some talking back and forth with the crowd and pointed out that his hair was thinning. I told him it was because he was a Grandpa. He asked me if the guy next to me was a Grandpa and I said yes. He had my husband take off is cap to look at his hair, of course my husband has a full head of beautiful grey hair. Neal said the grandkids must not be his or he wouldn't have all that hair. It was a great evening.
On Sat. morning we had a very nice breakfast then headed out to check out some of the local wineries. Yes, I did find several new wines that are now in my wine cabinet. Also found a farmers market where I purchased some of the best tasting peaches I've had in a long time. If I don't eat them all before tomorrow I hope to make a cobbler, we'll see.
The evening was topped off by a fun square dance in Somerset, Ky. Those are some of the most friendly folks in the world. Hated to see the night end. Sunday we were all up early, saying our goodbyes and heading home. A beautiful drive and a beautiful day.
Today I play catch up. Laundry, cleaning and the such. Need to get it all done becuase our first square dance campout is this coming weekend and I need to get the motorhome reloaded. Took everything out at the end of the season last year so gots to get it done.
Hope everyone had as good a weekend as I did and that this week will be a good one too.
Sue: I don't know what my problem is. I've been bald from the time I was 22. It must have been those hard high school years.
It was a weird weekend. I worked on the boat on Saturday while Betty took the kids to the beach. However, yesterday I felt like I had been slipped a Mickey. I was extremely tired but today I feel good.
Today is a prep day: Betty is in the last week of work and I have a few things to take care.
So I better get to it.

We saw a play yesterday with some of the best acting we've seen in a long time. It was August Wilson's "Jitney." The small cast got a standing ovation, well deserved.
We walked to dinner after the play to Scott's Seafood and Grill. I had a salad with scallops and some dark green veggie. No, it wasn't spinach. Anyway, we shared a sinful dessert: broken chocolate cake and vanilla gelato.
I have lots of things on my to-do list today. Tomorrow is Keith's micrographic surgery. The doctor will cut out a piece of the cancer and make sure there's a "margin." The lab is on site, so they don't have to wait a month to see what it is. Keith's dermatologist was worried about how deep the cancer has gone.
So that's the accounting of my day and part of tomorrow.
Sue, am so glad you had such a fantastic weekend. Judy, being the sick person I am, everyone who tells me they enjoy a play I can't help but think, "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, what did you think of the play?"
Speaking of fun weekends, it's high time you enjoyed one Moiraine!!!!!!!
I am awaiting a call to pick up the four monsters at the Vet. It was a bad morning as I was exhausted just getting them into the carriers and then getting the carriers into the car. Actually, they never saw it coming so the actual getting them into the carrier bit was easy. Thankfully, I now have a crossover so arranging them was not a problem.
Then went to Johnson City to Jeff's office for more bloodwork. I asked how in the world 60mg's of Lasix in an IV can have me heading to the bathroom every minute whereas the 200mg of the same exact drug I took yesterday in pill form had no effect whatsoever?! Karen said she couldn't really answer as she had no idea.
I'm hoping that once I get the C-Pap study complete and get started it will give me my life back. Those who do undergo the treatment say it certainly has theirs. Speaking of, the same outfit that said their computer didn't have me listed and they went back ten years, the same outfit who never notified my family physician of the report but from whom I got all the results when I called and "asked" (yeah, I was polite but the tone of my voice was rather clear) and she discovered everything literally within one minute (I had the initial test 10 Jul, 2010); called Friday and said I was scheduled for the additional pressure test on Saturday evening. I came right out and said that I was incredulous they'd even contact me following their insulting remarks to my Doctor's nurse about my never having the original study. She replied, "I guess you're cancelling the apointment huh?" I told her she was indeed a very perceptive individual.
Well, best get ready to pick up the kids who are all going to be shaven and look like...........well, what do you think a virtually hairless cat looks like, especially the one that weighs about 20 pounds?!!!"
Prayers and Blessings continue for all on the list!
