Friday, The First Day Of Summer Will Arrive!

I have never been so glad for summer to arrive and it comes Friday! The short pants, T-Shirts, halter tops and hot pants for the ladies are already showing up in the malls, Wal-Mart and other stores I visited this past week. The show of tattoos are in full view, men and women, this year. It's just a matter of how much sunshine we get before we get to see all the Sun Tans and many more tattoos I imagine. The basketball players all seem to be cover with tattoos all over.

 

Not much rain so far but when it starts to fall the mosquitoes will be ready to bite everybody for sure. I just hope they are not as bad as last year when we had many deaths because of bites. So goes the saying, "If it isn't one thing it's another". I will be going to the Senior Center to use the machines as you wish and it's always free for seniors. Maybe I can get my left side to feel better and not so sore.

 

I am about tired of taking my medications for pains that will get dull at times but never stops hurting with every twist and turn I make. I'm sure I am not the only one hurting. It really gets to me when one side is fine and my left side continues to be painful when I'm trying to do certain tasks. Bending, stooping, standing, and trying to reach things get hard to do with pains going crazy.

 

I'm not complaining just explaining how my body feels on most days but I'm sure other survivors are having the same problems as I have with age. I'm certainly not a spring chicken by any means at my age.

 

On that note I had to give up trying to bowl again in my condition. It proved to be more than I'm ready to handle at this time. The fun of being among others I bowled with for many years is there but me being able to physically roll the ball down the lanes and hit the pins was not happening like I had hoped it would!

 

Old age brings about a change in body functions especially when one side is still paralyzed from the stroke. So for now I suppose going to the bowling centers to observe others bowling good scores and games will have to work for me! I started to remember all the 300 perfect games I have rolled to get my confidence up now but it didn't work for me.

 

I have never sat on the park bench and watch the birds or feed them so with my much better vision in both eyes I will just watch the tattoos and be glad it's summer time and I'm still alive! I will enjoy summer time some how. I still got my little dog to care for and train plus being outside with her while my grand daughter is on vacation for a couple weeks with her mom!

 

Have fun everybody get outdoors and breathe the warm air in the shade or sitting by the pool! Get up do something you like!

FRED,

GREAT POST, I'M NOT THAT FOND OF HOT WEATHER, I HAD MY SHARE IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THAT AND HUMIDITY. I PREFER SPRING AND FALL. I' KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT BOWLING THOUGH I HAVE FRIENDS THAT ARE PILOTS AND LOVE AIRCRAFT LIKE I DO, BUT I'LL NEVER PILOT A PLANE AGAIN. I AM THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE THOUGH, AND TRY TO ENJOY EACH DAY. SO FAR, I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY EXPIRATION DATES STAMPED ON MY BODY. LOL ENJOY THE SUMMER FRED, AND I HOPE TEXAS DOES NOT HAVE A DROUGHT THIS YEAR, LORD WILLING.

Thanks Will, I hope not another drought season. I got up this morning to water my front yard and maybe the back yard tomorrow morning early. It's dry now but suppose to rain by Monday, a 30% chance, so says the weather man! I can take the heat better than the cold being born and raised in Texas but spent many years in Germany with the snow and ice.

No triple digit degrees yet but from past experiences we know darn well they are on the way and I hope some rain too. We are in the middle and upper 90's for the last two weeks just no 100 yet!
