When we visited my sister, my nephew’s wife recommended three books written by David Balducci, known as the memory man series Cliff already read the first two and just started the third and last book in the series today. If I ever run out of other books to read, I’ll see if I like these as well as Cliff does. Meanwhile I have three actual paper-and-hard-cover books (biographies of country music artists) that I’ve bought and paid for, and have no idea when I’ll get to them. My cup runneth over! My next library book is waiting patiently on the iPad: “Before We Were Yours”.
It’s been cold. I checked the propane tank yesterday and found it at 60%. They only fill it to 80%, so in the last month or so, we’ve taken it down quite a bit. Now we’re looking forward to a warmup through the next week or more. I dread the mud that comes with a thaw; I’ll have a muddy dog every time I take him for a walk. Or maybe I’ll skip the walk.
On days Heather works, I walk to their house and let Apollo, their Great Dane, out for a potty break. He’s a big old lazy pup, and today he didn’t seem to interested in staying outside once he’d gotten in a few big stretches. I like taking Gabe over there with me, but as I said, it’s muddy. Yuck. He has an appointment with the groomer Monday.
I’ve spent the past couple of days figuring out our new Medicare provider. We switched because this company offered what sounds like the best deal, but I’ve had to sign up on websites and call customer service and all sorts of not-so-fun things. This plan offers some benefits for dentists and optometrists, and even pay some on hearing aids and glasses. I had to pay $250 recently as my part of a CT scan; this company would only make me pay $75.
Having nothing of interest to write, I believe I’ll get back to reading.
