Road Warriors


Been an interesting week for all the retirees on Treetop and Greenbrier. With all of our roads and driveways being
torn up and redone there's been alot of armchair supervisory duties to be attended to. Betcha this little puppy of a
machine cost (us) a pretty penny. When all is said and done it ought to be a smoother walk in morning for me and a
pretty sweet ride for everyone.

Arteriovenous fistula

As you know I am, and now Mark, are visiting our daughter Lindsay's family.  I've been here 10 days and Mark joined me this past Saturday.  We planned this trip around a possible training our son-in-law might have had to take that lasted a month in order to help our daughter out with Dylan.  As it turned out he didn't go for the training.  Just after I got here however, Dave's Dad John took ill while on vacation out west and found himself unable to walk.  In the trauma center in Salt Lake City after many days of testing it was determined he had artriovenous fistula in his spinal cord.  So Dave flew out 4 days after I arrived and has been there since.  He was operated on this morning and we await the next few days for results on the surgery which they hope went well.  Time will tell and it will definately be a long recovery in any case.  Worse case scenerio would have been quadrapelgic status so we are hopeful right now that will not be his fate. 
All in all I can only say that the Lord works in mysterious ways ..... bringing us here when we were needed
even if it wasn't the original intent.  And once again this year telling us that life can change in an instant.

D Tyme

It's been so much fun spending time with Dylan who is definately becoming
quite a little character. He loves his balls......."fooball, bassball" and any kind
of ball! He loves them all. He loves to help me cook and he loves to ride "moh" (more) in his wagon with all his balls. He seems to have developed a passion for mini muffins and gets alternately hysterical (when he doesn't get them) to something like estatic when he gets his little package and savors and devours them with reverence. So funny! Anyway, the time is already going fast!

the delightful sweetness that is my grandson! Expect new pics to come!

Art at the Market

Today 5 of my neighbors and I tried out our "stuff" at the art day at the Grand Rapids Farmer's Market. While none of us got rich, we did enjoy a fun day of people watching and enjoyed seeing everyone's art. For me it was nice just have people say they liked my stuff and see them smile when they truly "looked" at it. For me it was worth the price of admission.
P.S.  Minna in my blogheader (2nd from left has a new home).
