Some Pretty Funny Stuff
Isn't it great to see a blog from me about "funny." And it is great for me, now that I think about it. Because I haven't had much "funny" in a long time. And it is not a quick, two second funny then back to business.
One of Bruce's new "projects" is feeding Kira in the morning. I am working on problem solving. If I set her stuff up at night, he has no problem feeding her. And yes, he can bend over in the WC without me worrying about him falling on his face. But the task is to find the dish, spoon and food. (All in the kitchen and Bruce knows where) Plus, Kira needs an incredible amount of her special food and she is not a good eater, so this helps. But with most cats (animals), if you feed them, they become your new best friend! LOL. She cries for him to let her up on his lap. Sunday, during shower, she was mad the door was closed. Stupid me, lets her in. She wants to get on Bruce's lap, he sprays her with the shower head and she bites me! This morning he is letting her lick the milk off a piece of cereal! He was smart enough to leave the cereal piece on the table, but with Bruce, one never knows.
Kira had her Vet check up this morning. I thought the Vet would split her pants laughing at the stories. Vet said "let them enjoy."
Tonight, Carl and Debi in for dinner. Our schedules for the next few weeks are impossible, so I have been trying to get stocked up and chores done ahead of time, so that I will have few last-minute errands to run. So I planned to do a BJs run. But Carl always has a list. He is so patient and a great educator for me in house stuff.
Bruce's PT noticed that the left brake on the WC was soft. Last time Carl had to adjust the WC for me, it needed an Allen (sp ?) wrench. We found one and Carl said keep this out. Well of course that wrench was not right for this adjustment. I went to Bruce's tool box and found Metric wrenches. The whole set, intact (not Bruce's way. He must have purchased these pre-stroke and just never used them). Well the 4 was too small and the 5 too big. Then I find out there are other sets - SAE and US. Brother! So Carl gets his tool box out of his car and Bruce says "well." In Bruce-speak this is "Ethyl, there are others. I can't tell you where they are, but they are there." Sure enough, complete set of US or SAE. I still haven't gotten an explanation. And while there is not a 4 1/2 Metric, there is a 5/32 which works just fine.
Colleen: sorry honey. I just can't get this. Fortunately, I listened and then listened to Bruce. Debi got so confused, she went outside and had a cigarette. Debi doesn't smoke! Brake fixed. I poured Debi a glass of wine and off I went-laughing all the way. Exhausted, yes. Happy, yes! Debbie
