He took me to Lynda’s for breakfast. Home and another cup of coffee. Out to the Morton building and aired up the tires in the Chrysler. Ran the generator. Then to Taylorsville to drop off some propane tanks to be filled. Back to the house. Kathy was busy in the garden so Mike and I went to Dairy Queen for lunch and picked up Kathy a sandwich. Mike got a text that his car was done so I dropped him off at the service center. Home and more chores. A short nap then dinner. Usual evening routine.

Now the specifics:
Kathy wasn’t feeling well last Sunday so she skipped church. I think the allergies in the Ohio Valley got to her. Headache and upset stomach.
She was in good shape to watch the grand kids Monday and Tuesday.
Tuesday I took advantage of Kathy not being home and the nice weather and rode the motorcycle over to Hooter’s for lunch. Then rode over to the HAM club meeting Tuesday evening. Put around 78 mile on the bike.
Wednesday was yard work day. It’s been dry so not a lot of work. But it did manage to screw up my right leg again. It’s slowly getting better but it’s a pain in the ass. Yes, I know, not literally but figuratively.
Thursday was hair cut day. Over to pick up Gary then drop him off afterward. He’s still not doing well. Between all his problems and of course his wife Loretta has her limitations. I’m not sure how much longer than can exist living with just the two of them.
Thursday night we had dinner with the Craycrofts. Mike is a HAM friend and Kathy gets along well with his wife Gloria. So we had a very nice time.
Friday the son-in-law dropped his car off at the repair shop over here. So I went down and picked him up at 8AM and we went to Lynda’s for breakfast. Back to the house and did chores in the Morton building. Kathy was busy in the garden so Mike and I went to Dairy Queen for lunch and picked up a sandwich and brought back to Kathy.
Saturday was the North American RTTY contest. Our friend Leeta is into RTTY so she wanted to come over and work the contest from our house. It started around 2PM and she had fun till around 6 and went home. I had dinner and worked a couple stations but I’m not into that much.
Well that’s it for this week. As always, hope this finds everyone safe and well. Blog at you again next week.
