Cleaner Truck Hood, Update On Hand, Lunch With Gypsy


Saturday, after dumping all the tanks, I decided to finally try to get some of the tree drippings off my truck.  It was really gross.  It warmed up enough so that if I got wet, I wouldn’t freeze.

It’s not perfect and I only did the front, but I don’t have to look at the mess, although the tree is still dropping berries or whatever it is. The rest can wait.  After I leave, then I will do the whole thing.

Sunday, I just stopped at Safeway on the way home from church.  I was getting a little bit low on groceries and I still had a gift card from when I retired.  Thank you Team Kimi!  With the card and using my Safeway card I spent $0.15 for over $85.00 worth of food. It would be nice if that were every day.  Hee Hee.Winking smile  Other than getting a load of wash done, the rest of the day was spent catching up on reading blogs.

Now on Monday, there was good news,  I saw Dr. Allen at U C Davis Orthopedic Clinic where after new x rays, he had them put a restraining  cover, or a soft cast (or what ever it is called).  Now all my fingers are free and I can take it off to wash my hands or hair or what ever.  I just have to be very careful not to overdo and definitely  not lift anything. 


He wants me back the 5th or 6th of March, but I couldn’t get an appointment until the 12th.  I hope to get an earlier appointment if they have a cancelation.  I had planned on leaving for Phoenix on the 9th, when Ted can help me drive.  One thing that I didn’t expect was that my hand would be bruised as much as it is, mostly from having the cast on not from the break.  It is also sore from non-use.  I am glad that they didn’t cast it again, because I will be able to use it a little bit to strengthen it. 

Today, Tuesday, Gypsy came for lunch.  We had spaghetti and blueberry shortcake for dessert.  We had a great visit.  I’m sure that her Lady will have some new smells when Marty (Gypsy) gets home. 


The only other thing that I had to do was meet with my accountant to go over 2011 taxes.  Yuck, but it has to be done.

Nothing more to do, so I will read more blogs and maybe watch a movie.

Hope that everyone had a great Valentine’s Day with their loved ones.

Thanks for visiting
