Default Sunday Rain!

Morning Mates, if I sound excited about the rain it's because I am! I don't think we've had any significant rain since Canada Day July 1st. It has been an uncharacteristically hot, dry summer. Yesterday I was walking the dogs on the lawn and it was CRISP!

Anyway, it is pouring today, and that is a good thing. I will spend the day doing indoor housework.

I laughed yesterday at Manuel's comment that being retired, every day is like the weekend, except on the weekend you don't have medical appointments! So true, I am enjoying this 3 day weekend because next week is going to be a bugger for medical appointments!

Now that I think about it my father was the first person to say that. He was never sick until he was 61. At that time he had colon cancer which required a major surgery. He survived that ordeal but he retired on a medical disability.
He lived a good life as a retiree but each year he had more Doctors to see. He loved all that days that he did not have medical appointments.


Today, I find myself and Mrs. TM living a good life except for medical issues.


But let's focus on the good things. Today is another sunny day and are enjoying it and we are happy with what we have.


Have a nice day, folks.


TM

Good morning. Bruce is out getting a new chain for the chainsaw and when he gets home and puts it on he will be cutting up the branches in the back yard. I will be doing all I can to help. I may see about getting the old wagon out to take the smaller pieces to the road for pick up.

All have a great day.

Default Sunday Rain!

Good morning. Donna, I envy you that rain. Here, it will be another very hot day. Keith and I will probably go to Pasadena for lunch.

Yes he is. He works 40 hours a week for the state Mon to Thur and then on Fri and Sat he does side jobs and then Sunday he works at our house. He has stopped for awhile today as it is 98+ degrees. I took a bit of branches to the road but with that temp I had to stop too. Hopefully alter this afternoon we can do more.

I agree! We're so blessed to have medical treatment's that keep us alive and relatively comfortable today. We also enjoy that almost all of our doctor's are in the same clinic (or at least in the same area). That's a good thing !
