2019 August 28 Wednesday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

58° and clear.

We didn’t go to the cafe for coffee with the gang today. Instead we went to the senior center to have a public health nurse trim our toenails. I am no longer able to trim my own nails and when Ella had tried, it caused way too much pain for too little effect.

After lunch, they played bingo at the senior center. Ella played. I sat on the couch and worked on this week’s sermon. I hate to admit this but, I became so drowsy that I couldn’t continue. I hope that no one in the congregation goes to sleep. I may have to scrap it and begin again.

The last of my VA meds finally arrived at the post office today. For several weeks I’ve been receiving emails from the VA wanting me to take a survey about my recent experience with the VA pharmacy. However there was no place to say “I’ve only received a few of my prescriptions.” They’ve trickled in 1 or 2 at a time.

We got the whole gang together at Village Inn this afternoon. This may be the last time this season that all 12 of us will be together. And at the age of the group members, who’s to say if we will ever sit together again in this existence?

This evening the gals got together for Mexican Train dominoes. Francis and I were present but not participating.

The lake in the last rays of sun. I just missed a great shot as some of the geese flew just over my head.

The last color of day through the tree. Does anyone else think it looks like angry eyes?

God bless and g’nite
