Cars of beauty:
Most folk that know me know this would be my lifetime favorite, the 1955 Chevy, their first V8 to compete with Ford for take off and speed.
Entry for Monday:
McDonalds is open. We made our regular (used to be) trip for a half biscuit with jelly and coffee before church. We had a good church service about ½ regular attendants.
Afterward we checked on our roofers, they needed an hour to finish so we took a quick trip to see one of my heroes who is also Sherry’s brother Vernon. It hurts to see a vibrant man in his late 80’s who could run 35 miles a few years ago; and did hundreds of jumps as a paratrooper, lying listless. He acknowledged us being there with a lot of effort. He has given up, refuses any meds and doctors. I get it, but it is hard. His family will be there for support until the end. It is still tough on Sherry, all of her life he has been her hero. I never knew anyone with a bad word about Vernon. Sherry is handling it ‘fairly well’ knowing him and his determination to do things his way and cause the least waves possible.
We then went back to pay the roofers for a good job in such a short time.
Then we drove a few miles across Charlotte to visit Josh & Megan and their kids Rose Mary and the newest dude, Oliver Jack. He is 3 weeks old and of course a cutie.
Josh & Meg bought a home lately and he wanted me to look at some things on the ‘Inspection Report’. There is nothing on the report that would reflect a structural danger, easing his mind.
I did hook up the water to the ice maker and got it making ice, they B happy ‘bout that.
Great visit ending a very full day. Hope Y’All are well and safe. Us ole folks was beat!
