Now the particulars:

The blog was late last week because I spent the day at my son-in-law’s place helping him with his closet project.  He is building shelves into their walk-in closet.  He is using LED lighting and that’s the principle reason he has me helping.  So far things are coming along good.  I will post some pictures when it gets close to being finished.

The big story of the week is Shelby going in for surgery.  Some of you may know she had some respiratory issues when she was born and that is an ongoing issue.  However, Tuesday she went for out patient surgery and things were much better than anticipated.  She only had some minor work done on her nasal cavities to clean them out.  The other things they thought they might have to do were not necessary.  So, we spent some time this week watching the grand kids while Mike and Julie were busy with that.  Since Shelby couldn’t go back to school for 2 days we brought her over here Wednesday evening to stay overnight.  Thursday morning Carter got sick at school so Kathy had to go pick him up while I stayed home and watch Shelby.  Then we had both of them the rest of the day.  Kathy was trying to get packed for her trip at the same time.

Kathy left Friday morning to drive up to central Pennsylvania for her nursing school class reunion.  She left around 7AM and got up to the school around 5:30PM.  She met some classmates and they went out for dinner.  Then Saturday was the alumni association luncheon and her class had a get together Saturday evening.  Said she had a lot of fun.

Went out to do the lawn on Wednesday and the lawn mower broke down.  I pulled it into the shop and tore it down to find a blade had apparently loosened up and stripped the spline on the spindle.  So I had to make a quick trip to the John Deere dealer in Shelbyville for parts.  Came home and put things back together and finally got back to mowing 2 hour late.  But every thing worked OK.

Saturday this week I went over to Bullet County to help with testing some people for their HAM license.  The club over there gave a crash course Friday night and Saturday morning and we tested them Saturday afternoon.  Got 5 new HAMs out of the group.

Well that’s aboput it for this week. Hope this finds everyone well.   Have a great week to come and I’ll blog at you again next week.
