Well...Shrek didn't like my idea of dropping me off at the walking bridge and waiting for me a mile downstream. So he dropped me off at the guitar store and I walked home from there. 45 min walk, not bad. I beat him home by 20 mins.

Did he get lost?

First he looked at guitars and schmoozed with the store owner (who says we have bought more from him than any of his other customers) and then somehow he ended up at Wallyworld to buy all new replacement underwear.

Weatherman lied! "Chance of rain" Doubted it. So I opened up every window in the house. Just had a 30min marathon run. Running around closing them all again. I'm getting too old for that stuff. It's pouring outside. Mopping floors wasn't on the agenda today.

I am so sorry Addie. I must have missed your post somewhere along the way. I will continue to pray for your daughter & you, my heart goes out to you both!! Try to look to the positive as difficult as it may seem at times. I pray the tumor continues to shrink so she can go into remission, nothing is impossible. Take care.

Thank you SB. I am beginning to get my fight back. I am going to go see her tomorrow. She lives about 30 seconds away from me, but I never know what days she is feeling up to company. So we mostly talk on the phone. But I have the need to hug her.

Thanks CG. The drive was interesting. There were lots of lane closures on the highway because of construction. The rain went from normal wipers to intermittent to fast to slow down because of reduced visibility and back. I was surprised that it only added 15 minutes longer than the usual 1 hour.

We got most of the apples out of the tree. Since I don't spray, many ain't pretty. (insert Joni Mitchell song here.) Of course, some really good looking ones are still way at the top, out of reach, even with a tall ladder and an extra long apple picker. And a lot of really good apples fell, and got bruised, but are still useable. I do have a bunch of nearly perfect eating apples, those will go in the fridge. The rest will be cooked into sauce and apple butter. Overall, got 3 grocery bags full between yesterday and today, making about 6 bags total this year with a bunch more pitched into the woods as they were too damaged to salvage. The critters seem to enjoy them.

Roasting more cherry toms, picked some nice basil. And I have GOT to do something with all my cukes, probably more freezer bread and butter pickles.
