We headed out, he dropped me at Walmart and he went to Lowe's. We were back home in time for lunch. 100+ mile round trip. Ken went outside after lunch and finished hooking up the drip system for the garden. Looking good.
While he was doing that I got Jacob's package together and ran it to the post office. It should be on base on Thursday. Hopefully he'll have it Friday. Seth said he was ok and once he got a post office box he'll let me know. I ordered Allissa a sign like we have here as she loved it. 💜 The gentleman I'm dealing with is really easy to work with. Between the orders I've done with him he raised his prices, because of the cost of metal but said he would give me hers at the cost of the others. 💙

and then other goodies I could find 💙
We did some things and then around 1700 headed over to Karen's to get caught up on things. It's been so windy there was no way to sit outside and enjoy happy hour but yesterday was perfect. We didn't stay too long as we had an early morning coming up.
|This fire is from Sunday night, but we had another just like it last night.|
No more needed we hope!
This morning we left the house just about 0700 to head for Winnemucca and my twice yearly doctor's appointment. They are staggering patients so no mask required for either doctor, staff or patients. YAY! Finally some common sense!
It was a great visit and all my numbers on my labs and scales are good! Blood pressure was high but I'll keep a watch on that as I always have "white coat syndrome" and some other things lately. Just keep doing what I'm doing and I'll see her again in November as I will be going on Medicare in December. Sorry to have to change doctors but after seeing what medicare pays, can't blame her for not taking it. She said the only way she could make it would be to close her practice and go to work for the hospital. Not what she wants to do.

years ago after we retired.
We left there about 1140 and headed for Fallon, NV. Decided to have a celebratory linner at Stockman's. They close at 1400 now so we just missed it. Tried The Depot Diner inside a casino. Good food, service and we're full! We would definitely go back. I did pack lunch in case we couldn't find a place, but now we have lunch for tomorrow. :)
Got home around 1600 and the day is done. Ken set the timer for the garden just to make sure everything works.
Today we are mourning the passing of one of our friends. Sue was one of my first friends when we moved to North Highlands in 1980. Her little boy, George would come and visit with Russell while Sue went to work as a teacher's aide at the elementary school where Eric and Bryan went. She's the reason I got my job there too. We got to be excellent friends and the friendship spanned over 40 years.
We used to all go camping to Dillons in our younger years with kids. When they all had ATV's we would all meet at Sand Mountain or Winnemucca Dunes. Several Easters she and I would bring the Easter Eggs for all the kids to find.
Over the last several years we would see each other on Facebook and stayed in touch that way, but we always knew we were friends and there for each other. She has a wonderful family and a husband of over 50 years. She will be terribly missed. 😢 We love you Sue!
