Blackie, my cat, no ’the feral cat’ is still around. I had a talk with her today. She paid about as much attention as the trees. I apologized for leaving her without food. She continued to wash herself about 8 feet away. In the middle of our talk she walked off. I called her a few names, none affected her. LOL
Later she told me she had been eating well. (I noticed she wasn’t eating too much of my bought-en food) Michelle next door has spoiled her with table scraps. She walked over and let me pet her and we made up.
Now about the motor home. Mike in Atlanta called today saying the parts came in, they would install them this afternoon, and start up the engine on Monday to see if there are other ‘issues’. I am not sure I like that word issues. I prefer ‘check to see if there is any trouble with the engine.’ I think ISSUES cost more than engine trouble. LOL
Fairly often we think of something we want and grin. Then laugh and say, that is in the motor home. Even Son-Mark e-mailed today wanting a copy of his resume’, I told him it resides in the computer down in Atlanta.
I took Shirl’s computer to the computer geek to see if he could turn the computer over to ME. I tried to follow the instructions on the net and made it inaccessible to me. I am frustrated on this older lap top and Smart Phones. I have learned Smart phones have made idiots out of sane people.
Tomorrow it will be 63 years since I tricked a beautiful, smart girl into marrying me. She has been the best. I love that she decided to live with her mistakes.
I have tried many things in my life to support us. She worked towards her own career once the boys were of school age. We both had frugal parents who raised families through the Great Depression. We were told to avoid ‘debt’ if at all possible. We haven’t always been successful, but for the past 30 years we have been debt free. If we use a credit card, it is paid off that month.
We drove used cars while many friends bought new cars every year and made payments. We put off buying things until we could pay for them. Life has been good to us. We are both at the 80 mark, and she is as beautiful as ever. I tell the grands, “She is still the best kisser in the world.”
We kiss when we get the urge. We started laughing when the boys said 'stop that'. Sitting on a bench at the River Walk a few years ago Sherry kissed me. Our sons said She embarrassed them. LOL Okay that WE embarrassed them.
