Oh my Heavens!! There is nothing in this letter but about me!!! I am writing this letter because “I NEED to write it!“ Writing in this BLOG has become one of the softest ways of approaching my world. I put the words down on paper … and I like the result!!!
I mentioned before that Craig and I did the daVinci Exhibit … I could, of course, remember the ‘Mona Lisa” from daVinci … but I did not realize his many sketches of possible “engineering improvements.” I think daVinci was quite interested in moving objects … by “power or water.” Of course, as I saw the models … made by people other than daVinvi … I wondered if a group of high school students could make the models … you never leave teaching!!! Had a great coffee break at the Museum … and did lunch after … Mexican!!! So nice!!!
I am drinking too much coffee. I walk into the apartment … and fix myself a cup of coffee … it gives me an immediate thing to do!
Did a lovely dinner out Wednesday of this week. Kay … whose son, Jim, will drive me to places … such as an “Uber” driver does … but he is a friend of the residents here … so it is really safe and convenient … anyway, Kay would sit with Pete when I left during those last weeks. I did not want Pete alone even with the assistants here. After Pete’s passing, Kay and I made arrangements for dinner out … just to talk. She had a recommendation for an “authentic” Mexican restaurant! And, of course, it was difficult to find! We did drive around it several times … not recognizing it as a restaurant!!! The food was very good … and it was very much a family place!!! Jim joined us later … and the conversation was good.
I am becoming a ” Colorado Rockies'” fan … Colorado Professional Baseball Team. Score is 4 – 1 … Rockies’… top of the ninth … home game … two on base!!! We shall see !!! We have some fine young players. I also follow the Colorado Broncos … our professional foot ball team. Of course … I still follow my SAINTS …I miss popcorn in the middle of the Sunday football games!!
I knew I was coming close to some medical necessities … but I was using Pete as excuse.
With Pete’s needing care, I did not want Craig to have both Pete and me needing medical care at the same time. Have seen two independent … of each other .. ophthalmologists…and both found cataracts and glaucoma. Will have surgery during the month of July ..with one appointment middle of August. I also knew my knees were unhappy!” Have seen one orthopedist who surprised me by “diagnosing” my left hip as needing more immediate replacement. I have another “orthopedic” appointment this Wednesday. If both agree, I will do the left hip around this coming September or . (I have messed my alignment .. and cannot get things in place.) That is September o
Happy Easter … Pardon the total fixation on my activities.
