I slept over eight hours last night. Well technically, I only 2 minutes last night. Sleep started at 11:58 on. Anyway … before I sidetracked myself … the point was … I slept a L—O—N—G time. Normally, I average five to six hours of sleep.
41° and clear this morning. It reached 79° by 1 pm and stayed right there until sundown. By all accounts it was a great first full day of spring.
We arrived at Over the Hill Gang about 10:45 and started playing Fast Track. The first game was just Ella and I. By the second game, Naomi and Lu joined us. We had just finished the game when lunchtime arrived. Brats, sauerkraut, and beans. It was good even if the brats were a little overcooked for my tastes. After lunch the 4 of us were joined by Ann and Charlotte for a few games of canasta. We had to stop the last hand at 2:50 because of Ella’s therapy appointment at 3. One of the joys of small town living is that nothing is too far away (except malls).
Ella didn’t come out from therapy until about 4:10. I ask if she had been kept after class for bad behaviour. No, she’d just been talking to someone.
Today we went to Grandies, as usual on Wednesdays. However, our church parking lot is being repaired and restriped this week. Therefore, we were unable to meet in the fellowship hall. Thankfully, we were allowed to meet at the Over the Hill Gang’s building this week.
This image is not really the true sunset. It is maybe ten degrees north of the sunset, which under deep dark clouds.

50° mostly cloudy and crawled slowly to 57°.
Nice sunrise this morning just before it disappeared into the clouds.
Immediately after breakfast we hightailed it to the VA clinic for a diabetic eye test.
With the test over and done, I took the opportunity of good cell service to call Verizon customer service. Last summer we purchased a HUM X device and then it quit working. Back in early February I received an email saying that they were shipping a replacement. However, they shipped it to an address that we haven’t used in years. So today I called to get everything straighten out. They will be shipping a new device to our current address.
No, that’s not the moon. It’s the sun at 6:16 this evening. In spite of the gloomy sky here, it was really a nice day.
60° mostly clear with a beautiful sunrise. It reached 71° under a blustery sky. This coming weeks forecast is for cooler weather. Below normal temps. However, with the weather other parts of the country are having, I’m not complaining. I’d never heard of a bomb cyclonebefore but it is wreaking havoc from the Midwest to the east coast. The news tonight was talking about part ofthe country having 95 mph straightline winds. There were images of semi tractor trailers being blow over and pushed down the highway but the wind.
Ella is officially freed from her arm sling. She had a follow-up appointment with her orthopedic surgeon this morning.
Her bionic arm is doing fine. She is still doing physical therapy.
And we were out of the doctors in time to make it to the Over the Hill Gang for lunch and games. Here is a panoramic shot of the two main rooms today.
Ella had therapy at three today. She was feeling less beat up today which must mean she’s doing better.
