62° and clear before sunrise. 77° by noon.
Coffee with the gang at the Cutty’s Fireside Cafe. Topics of the day: 4th of July, illness & injuries, Card Jackpot, Bingo, and dogs. No major world issues were settled. However, on the plus side, no new world issues were started by the group.
When a group like this (old people) you have the story tellers, the correcters, the listeners, and the distracted.
Ted, Stoney, and I are story tellers with Keith occasionally joining in. Sue, Nancy, Jean, and Ella are the correcters. They are the Frances ones who correct session session join the details of the stories and keep us honest (more or less). Sandy and Francis listen but seldom him in. If he does, Francis will likely start with, “I’ll grant you this …” We always manage to start the day with a laugh or two.
Ella had called some prescription refill to the Walmart pharmacy yesterday. This morning we went to pick them up. Only problem was that the refill order was sent to our Walmart pharmacy in Texas and we’re in Iowa. It took 1/2 to 3/4 hours to get straightened out. And one still needs a doctor’s approval. That will have to wait until Monday. And of course, it was the one that she is completely out of.
I burnt some steaks for supper.
I am nearly finished with the cover for the pickup.

Good lives in us all
