Boy this month sure flew by for me..it has been exactly 5 months since I arrived here in SMA and they have been magical months with the only downer being the situation with Daniela which is still unresolved but I am patiently waiting……I have seen so much of Paola culminating with the trip to the beach…..I have my own new and lovely casita to move into……playing tennis at least 4 times a week…..enjoying new friends…..blessed with wonderful health…and then there is that lady that lives in Cinco de Mayo!!!!!
This morning after breakfast I went and took Linda and Guy’s van to the repair shop to have it tested to see if there are any emission problems… today was the last day for the test and I was at the shop 8.30am when the garage opened and a good job because a few minutes later there was a line up!!
The employees all passed this statue and blessed themselves before starting work!!
and we did some errands in town had breakfast and then I dropped her back home in time for her to go to school…it was good to see here again and she seemed pretty happy.
I then went to my casita and did some more sorting it is looking really nice…came back here and went outside and read and sunbathed and then at 5pm went for a nice sunset hike down to the lake!!
I enjoy my hikes it gives me chance to do some thinking and a lot of my plans are made this way.
Tonight after supper just relaxing watching TV.
Old Timer's Hospital Stay
I am a sick old man.
I was sick and in the hospital.
There was one nurse,Joyce, that just drove me crazy.
Every time she came in, she would talk to me like I was a little child.
She would say in a patronizing tone of voice,
'And how are we doing this morning',
Or 'Are we ready for a bath', or 'Are we hungry ?'
I had had enough of this particular nurse.
One day, at breakfast, I took the apple juice off the tray and put it in my bed side stand.
Later, I was given a urine bottle to fill for testing.
So you know where the juice went !
The Joyce came in a little later, picked up the urine bottle and looked at it.
'My, it seems we are a little cloudy today. '
At this, I snatched the bottle out of her hand, popped off the top, and drank it down, saying, 'Well, I'll run it through again. Maybe I can filter it better this time.'
The nurse fainted.......... I just smiled.
DON'T MESS WITH 'OLD' PEOPLE
