We went back to the house and watched Shelby open gifts. Then home and come chores. Then a nap. Dinner, downstairs for computer work. Upstairs, chores, bed, TV and sleep.

Now the specifics:

The beginning of the week was very productive.  Cancelled my VSP vision plan for next year and have it lined up with Eyemed to start coverage.  Premiums will be less and the coverage will be more.  So it’s a win-win for me.

Got the TV cable boxes returned.  Found out while getting a phone service issue ironed out that I could just drop them off at a UPS office location.  Kathy had an item to return so I just dropped her item off and gave them the cable boxes.  That was much easier than I had anticipated.  So now we are totally over to streaming TV and so far the only things we missed was the Monday night football game.  Haven’t figured that out yet.

I still don’t have my friend Gary’s issues resolved and he is becoming a little impatient.  I should have know better than to start this but now that I’m into it I might as well finish.  Just seems like everything I try at his house comes with major challenges.  I will pickup that effort later this week.


Wednesday this week my friend Ron and his wife stopped at our house.  They are traveling from Denver, CO area to Ocala, FL area.  I worked with Ron for almost 20 years prior to retiring from AT&T.  He worked out of Denver and we usually talked several times a week.  We only met face to face a couple times during our employment when we went to the same conference.  I had never met his lovely wife and he had never met my wife.  But I would say we had a great time.  Kathy is looking forward to them visiting again when they come up.  She is already planning on getting tickets to the Derby Dinner theater.

Ron and his wife Linda stayed over Thursday so we were looking for things to do.  They had never heard of the Mega Caverns in Louisville so we took them there for a tram ride through the Caverns to see the Christmas lights.  I was through the caverns several years ago in the evening but I got stuck driving the car.  This year they started a tram ride during the day so we got tickets for that.  It was much nicer as you could see much more.  The tram was completely open so you didn’t have the posts in the car obstructing your view.  A very enjoyable time.

Otherwise we just sat around and enjoy good conversation and good eats.

They departed our house on Friday morning around 9AM and got to Florida late Saturday.



Thursday was our grand daughter Shelby’s birthday.  They had her party Saturday.  It was at a bouncy party place for kids.  They spent an hour and a half in the bouncy toy area then to a room where they had treats for a half hour.  The pictures  above are just a few we took.  I would run out of space here if I posted them all.  After the the event we all went back to Mike and Julie’s to watch Shelby open her gifts and to give her ours.  It was a pleasant day.

Well that’s about it for this week.  Need to finish up Christmas shopping this coming week then get back to my friend Gary’s project.

Hope this finds you well and have a great week to come.  I’ll blog at you again next week.
