After what has to be one of the most fitful, shortest night’s sleep I’ve ever had…. I finally gave up the fight in trying to get some sleep/rest shortly after my Bride got up this morning and rolled on out to join her in the start of our new day. I should probably clue you in just a little bit and let you know, one of my little Sisters. [Susan] called me to tell me that after a visit to her doctor – she has been diagnosed with apparently pretty severe cancer around her spine. There is still a ton of details to be discovered (and there are more tests scheduled) but the ‘doc’ told her she should let her immediate family know…… and in my life time experience, tells me – that is usually not a good sign. I wait with abated breath to hear back from her on her next visit with Doc -I always try to see the best in these situations, but I just do not have a good feeling about this one…….. I have never been a particularly religious person, but I ask any of your reading this, that is – to pray or keep good thoughts for her as this scenario plays out.
Seriously needing to defog my brain – I told my Queen I was taking off for a walk – going for distance on this versus speed or cardio. I had a route in mind that would give me ample time to try and sort this whole thing out in my brain [at least I hoped it would]. I came back in a much better place in my mind…… I stopped for lots of pictures and chatting for a bit with the guy that bought our truck – so my ‘time’ was down – but I have a new personal best on distance, some nice pictures for you – and have a better grip on the situation at hand now…… I hope.
Had to take a shower when I got back, because I was ‘that’ wet with sweat….. even though I was facing anther hot, humid day that will probably warrant another shower before I go to bed tonight. A shower out of the way, dried and mostly cooled off – I sat down and got pictures from today loaded, caught up on the internet world of news and FB before settling in on the couch for some TV time with my Queen. We watched one movie… ADRIFT. Based on a true story….. interesting…. albeit, predictable….. will give it a 5 out of 10. Still not as bad a PIG MAN. Angie whooped a up a concoction of tasty left overs while we finished the movie….. we started another movie – but we both agree we have seen it before and also agree it is not worth watching again. So gonna leave it here with you…… no calls from the dive shop, so my anticipated SCUBA dives will not happen ( I suspect weather is the biggest issue as we have had a couple of dandy thunderstorms roll through since I’ve been home) – but each new day brings renewed hope of getting back in the water soon~!
Good Night Ya’ll+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Thankx for stopping in~!
