"If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old."
~ Edgar Watson Howe
We saw the oncologist today. Jim's blood count is down. The doctor cautioned him to be careful around everyone this weekend. He is still not feeling good, but the doctor said he should start feeling better next week as his count rises.
We have received 1 3/4 inches of much needed rain yesterday and today. Hooray. A spin around town showed us that the Japanese beetle ate the leaves of many trees in town. Also on the highway to the doctor's office we noted a lot of tree damage. In the city was widespread damage. I guess the trees will recover but will this happen again every year? I wish that darn beetle was back in Japan where it came from in 1916.
Jim's sister from Florida will be arriving this evening. We are looking forward to seeing her.
