Around home, there are a few notable dates in our future. Tomorrow night is the Perseid Meteor shower, which will reportedly be the brightest meteor shower in recorded human history! In an unusual state of affairs, I won't be going to bed at my usual 8 PM tomorrow evening because I am attending a Green Day concert with granddaughter Monica!!!! I generally try not to use exclamation marks often, but I just can't help it today.
Yes, the group is outside my realm of musical interests for the most part. But several years ago I introduced Monica to their music for the first time and took her to her first Green Day concert. I love their mellow songs and pretty tunes, of which there aren't many. Here's a favorite:
However, I do love the energy and excitement that is present at any concert, especially any sort of rock concert.
Then after I arrive home from my night of depravity, I get to watch the heavens declare the glory of God.
Speaking of which: We are in the path of the big eclipse coming on Monday the 21st!!!! Yep, more exclamation marks... hey, I know people who use those in almost every sentence. An Internet friend I originally met in Blogland sent us the proper viewing glasses, three pairs, after I procrastinated getting ours. In a perfect world, Cora will be down for her nap by the time the eclipse starts and ideally it will be a sunny day. In a four-year-old's world (she turns four tomorrow), who knows? She is pretty regular with her nap-times, though, unless she happens to sense my excitement. And in Missouri, which is never the perfect world weather-wise, it could be cloudy and raining. Right now the weather-guessers say partly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain. Last time we had that same forecast, we received seven inches of rain. Oh yes, and tonight Cliff, our daughter, granddaughter Natalie (I hope) and I are going to opening night of the state fair to see Sawyer Brown perform. I've seen them twice before and enjoyed their high-energy performances. However, two of them are in their mid-sixties and three are in their mid-fifties. They may be in wheel chairs, for all I know.
Now, for the question everyone has: Cliff sees the urologist a week from today, on the 17th. I have had a CD of the CT scan since the day it was done, which I will give him. I assume the doctor will have received the information on the bone scan. That is all we know at present. Since it definitely is cancer, I am assuming Cliff will then be referred to an oncologist. That's just a guess, and it's all we know. I will let my blog readers know the results of that visit after it happens.
