Another visit with a long-time friend

This morning was wet and gray, with snow in the forecast. We had intended to visit another lady yesterday after we left Dona, but when we called her, we found out she leaves for the Senior Center at 10 A.M., where she socializes, plays cards, and eats dinner. So we headed out early this morning, since it was too nasty to go for our usual walk, and went to see Helen.

Cliff worked for many years with Helen, at the butcher shop. He went by her house and picked her up most days, since she was on his way to work. She's one of the dearest ladies you'd ever meet, and she was so happy to see us; she said we made her day! She lives in a small apartment by herself, at age 90. She uses a walker to get around, but seems to get by quite well.

See the white in my hair? That's ice. I got the bright idea to get in the hot tub while it's snowing. It really was a nice experience, but getting out and wading through snow wasn't a lot of fun. Would I do it again? Probably!

Glad y'all found time to make your friend's day. :o)

No snow here but I wish it would. Instead we got wind and about 2 inches of rain, give or take, and it was 60 degrees earlier, but falling now. It's supposed to fall to 36F overnight and we may get some flurries, but what fun is that?

Have a good week, Donna.

It's great that you keep in touch with your old friends like that. I know they probably loved seeing you! Your iced head is too funny. Maybe keeping a cap on would be a good idea! 'On Ya'-ma

That lady looks very good for 90! WOW! I'm sure she loved having you stop by.
LOL on your iced hair. I have always wanted to get in a hot tub with ice and snow around. What a treat!
Have a good week!
