While waiting for the rain to dry up I decided to change oil, fuel filters and clean the radiator out on my pickup truck. It was running warm and the air conditioning didn't work very well anymore. In hindsight I should have separated the bolts instead of throwing them all in one pile. I had a bunch left over and had to take it back apart to figure out where they went.Click image for larger version

+1. Funny isn't it, how life's circumstances change our plans and intentions. I was going to teach until I was in my early 70's. I'm SO enjoying retirement and often think I'm busier now than when I was working.

My plan was to work until I was 72, (larger SS check) and then do volunteer work for the Boston Ballet Company and at Symphony Hall mainly for The Boston Pops. So much for those plans. Open heart surgery, and other times spent in the hospital put everything in the Wishing Bag. It seems like I am always recovering from something nowadays.

The cabin at LOW is open for the summer. I am cooking cabin food to bring up tomorrow or Tuesday. My cousin is installing the ramp so I can bring Mom with me (and Dad, kicking and screaming...he isn't as in love with the cabin as Mom and I are). It has been a really hard (and long) winter. I have been counting the days until I could get to the cabin since mid-April. Pasta salad, rhubarb pie, blueberry-lemon muffins...cabin food.

I planned on working until I couldn't anymore since I was always self-employed. That changed when my brother died. I sure didn't plan on shutting everything done to care for my parents before retirement age. I doubt I will ever work again. Fortunately, I will have enough money to survive.

I am having a mourning day...finalizing the plans for Shrek's memorial/wake. This is just too hard for me today.

Hugs and love to you {{{Princess}}} We are preparing to travel to MI tomorrow for the memorial service for my MIL next Sunday. DH and his dad are doing pretty well. I'm baking cookies.

So sorry, PF. Terribly difficult and heartbreaking for you to go through. {{{{{PF}}}}

Lots of (((hugs))) and love to you, PF. Today or another, it would be difficult any day you would deal with it.
