and I am so thankful that I am. It is blissfully cool here again this morning at 48 degrees to reach the mid 70s. I had someone say to me once that my blogs were boring, that no one was interested in my weather. This happens to be my online diary that I have faithfully maintained since 2005, before Jim’s illness, following through his treatment, and until his death in 2006. I have made many friends. Some of them are very special to me and we keep in touch by email and telephone. In all of my lifetime I have met only one person, a blogging friend, that shares the same birthday as I. Not the same year, just the same day.
Anyway, to get back to this, my online diary, I was scheduled for a painful test in the spring. I searched and searched for something to prove I had the same thing done less than two years before. And, guess what, I found the information I needed in my online diary. After further checking with the doctor who was to perform the test, he was able to verify the results and so I didn’t have to have this test repeated. And speaking of doctors, I have an appointment with one this afternoon which I am not looking forward too.
Yesterday was a day of running; to the store, Menards and Wal*Mart.I am pretty well stocked up on groceries. I feel very sorry for the ones who are having a tough time getting by in this economy. While I was at the pharmacy on Sunday I saw such a scruffy looking person. His clothes and shoes were tattered and his person was dirty and unkempt. He stood at the counter waiting for attention for about 15 minutes while I was sitting down waiting for my scripts. He had one arm missing. I wondered if he was living on the streets. So many of our veterans are coming home from war traumatized and finding no help. For various reasons many of them are homeless with no family or friends to care about them. We have swept these men who have defended our country to the far corners of our mind, so that we can happily go on with our lives. http://www.squidoo.com/homelessveterans
Forgive me if I get carried away on this subject! I had 3 brothers, only one of them still living. They all served multiple tours in Viet Nam. My husband served in Korea and I have many relatives who served. This is a subject very near to my heart.
Sorry to get so serious as I try to keep my blogs uplifting if I can.
Have a wonderful day. Stay safe and be happy!!
