Good morning. My but it is really cool this morning, and I guess the whole day is going to be on the cool side. It's 61F degrees, and headed for only around 67 degrees. Tomorrow is supposed to get back up into the 70's. Gosh, I hope so. It's so early to be this cool all day.
I need to clear something up. The reason I mentioned I might need to use my walker when walking distances is not because I hurt my either of my legs. I have asthma/copd, and this makes walking very difficult most of the time. I hope I didn't confuse anyone. Physically, I'm okay.
As for getting a scooter, I have looked into it. I would be wanting one that is collapsible so that I could put it into the trunk of my car. Getting it in and out of the trunk may take some doing, but I'll worry about that if and when I get a scooter.
I am a very stubborn and independent person. I've been like this my whole life. So this scooter thing is as much scary as it is helpful. I'm just not ready to admit that this breathing thing is wreaking havoc on my independence. I've always had to be the strong one, and I'm not willing to give that up just yet. (But a scooter does sound nice.)
Last night I was going through some old photos, and I picked out a couple that are my favorites to share. Some years ago, my mother in law was tossing out a huge box of photos (she wasn't very sentimental, I guess) and I salvaged a few of them. This photo is my Michael, taken while he was on leave during the Korean War. (according to the notes on the back of the photo) Oh my, be still my heart! He looks so handsome!
This next photo is me and four of my children, taken October, 1988. One of them had been among the missing for nearly thirteen years, and now she was home. It was a very emotional and happy time for all of us. (I'm the one in the blue tee shirt)
Hmmmmm, memories! You know, I start going through some of these photos, and before I know it, hours have flown by. Each photo is a memory, and I enjoy re-living the moments when each one was taken. Gosh, I get so soppy sometimes!!
A little while ago, I called my life insurance company to find out why I don't have my bill yet. I pay this annually, and I have not received a bill yet. The nice lady on the phone said she would send one out right away. The mail carrier just showed up, and guess what was in with my mail? Yup, there was my insurance bill. Now that's what I call fabulous service!!!
Last night, I ordered an item from Amazon, using my tablet. While I was looking around at what new items they were offering, I came across a new type of thumbdrive. One end of it connects to your smart phone or tablet, and the other end connects to your USB port on your pc or laptop. Prices ranged from about $4,50 to $6.25. Of course I had to order one for me to try. I'll post how it works after I try it out.
Well, I'm running out of morning, and I have a few things to do here before we have our lunch. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
