Joseph and Doctors

Hey, Y'all,
Well, back in summer of 1994, Dubby and I went on a three week trip across part of this great country of ours. We drove up through Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, and a few other states. While we were in Minnesota, we went to a high school production of "Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat" and enjoyed it thoroughly. 

Last evening, Carol, Daryl and I had supper at a Mexican restaurant and then went with some others from Countryside Bible Church to a production of the same name at the Artisan Theater. It was a wonderful production and we had a great time, applauding and cheering the actors. If you have never seen it, please go to it when you have the opportunity. It is, of course, an Andrew Lloyd Weber creation. 

This morning, I am baking a sausage/egg casserole for our Wednesday morning snack at the Bible Study I am taking part in at Countryside. My rider, Vicki, who goes with me on Wednesday mornings, is having physical therapy on her shoulder. She had rotor cuff repair surgery a couple of weeks ago, so I will be traveling alone.

I got my blood work report back on Monday, and although it wasn't bad, it wasn't as great as I hoped it would be. Nothing serious, girls. Just happens to all of us. Eating is one of the problems, too. Ha. 

I have a really great family doctor who keeps up on all my stuff and keeps me taking the right things. 

Speaking of doctors, I have to go see my cardiologist on this Friday morning and hear the reports on the stress tests. I will also get my pace maker checked on Friday. My cardiologist is a really good one, too. 

I spent Monday and Tuesday working on Teresa's quilt and have adhered 120 squares to the twelve strips that will compose the top of the quilt. My next step is to applique stitch around each square. Following that will be to begin putting the quilt together. 

This evening will be choir practice at my church, following supper there with other members. I always enjoy sitting and eating with them. We laugh and talk about stuff that is happening or that has happened in the past. I did not go on Monday evening to eat out with some of them because I was not really in the mood for it. Sunday for lunch I ate alone at Schlotsky's and had a small chipotle chicken pizza. I don't do that very often and just felt like it. Then I went to Famous Footwear and bought a new pair of tennies. The ones I had, were a year old and have been worn almost daily for the year. Time for a change, hmmmm?

Well, folks, that is about it for today. The cool air has finally come to north east Texas and it feels good. High today is in the 60's. I get to wear my new jacket that Teresa sent me from Coldwater Creek. They are predicting maybe some frost in the morning. We did get some rain on Monday night and are hoping for some more rain soon. Of course, the weather will warm up towards the last of the week. 

One more thing that is newsworthy... I saw on network news this morning about a private animal reserve in Zanesville, Ohio where the owner who had around 50 some odd exotic animals caged was found murdered and all the cages opened. The authorities have killed about 35 of the animals, and are hunting the others. My bet would be that some wacko who was opposed to having the animals caged (and they are wild animals) killed the owner and turned the animals loose. That would be a good premise for a murder mystery, wouldn't it? 

Well, gotta get off of here and finish getting ready for leaving the house in a few minutes. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.

That age business sure can get in the way of living. Seems like I'm always feeling some new thing I haven't felt before.
The news just now reported that the animal guy killed himself and was not murdered. Let's help those animal rights people don't start killing people. That would make their message very difficult to find any sympathy for.
