Now the specifics:

I guess the most notable this week was our 53rd anniversary. It was a quiet celebration. We exchanged cards in the morning and used a gift card I got for Christmas and went to Red Lobster for dinner. While we were out for dinner, Julie and the kids stopped by the house and left a bunch of flowers, a card and a chocolate and vanilla cake. It was very nice. Never thought I’d survive 53 years. Amazing.

Started with Wednesday service at church. This was Ash Wednesday and then 4 weeks of lent terminating on Easter Sunday. So that’s a second church service a week we will be going to.

Did the HAM club net on Wednesday. My normal time is the 4th Wednesday of the month. I did it last week as well for our president Mike who was in Florida.

Radio bands have been good I spent a lot of time chasing POTA stations. Also a lot of European contacts. Made my first digital contact to Kenya and a Missionary Hospital down there.

Went for another short motorcycle ride this week on Thursday. Only out an hour and 1/2 and did about 60 mile. Starting off slow. Need to get my legs in shape before I go too far.

Well the consensus is in….. No podcast. Good news here. I don’t have to figure out the details of how to do that.

Monday this coming week I go to the pain management place. I’m hoping they line me up for some physical therapy. I’ll keep you posted on that.

Wednesday this coming week Todd will be arriving in Louisville. He is coming down for his birthday which will be Saturday. Of course the wife and Julie have everything lined up. Not sure how that is going to play out. Let you know more next week.

Well, that doesn’t seem like much this week but that’s all I’ve got. As always, hope this finds everyone safe and healthy. Please stay that way. Blog at you again next week.
