We just got back from a wake for our grandson's great grandmother. He was outside when we arrived and wanted to take us inside. He announced, Come inside Grampy, there's a dead person in there.

Lol, I'm busy tormenting Rol and the cat, because I can. And because I'm bored. If I were still a kid I'd totally have either been sent to my room to clean it or shoved out the front door to play outside by now.

Art Linkletter nailed it when he said " kids say the darndest things!"

I think it is good for them to be a part of the happy and the sad events in life. I am always amazed at what makes an impression on them.

Waiting for the swarms to vacate the subdivision pool. We have a neighbor who invites his extended family to go swimming, and they never leave.

Thankfully, Kindle has a waterproof cover!

Sitting here with my window wide open with the outside temps in the low 50's. There is a light breeze blowing into my apartment making it a bit chilly. So I have gotten my blanket out of the storage stool and put it back on my bed. I don't want to close the window. This apartment is getting a good airing out. My son showed up today and cleaned the front of the cabinets and the stove hood along with the outside of the fridge. What a difference. In turn he had a perfectly cooked really thick pork chop stuffed with mushrooms, onions, and garlic galore. It was accompanied with a baked sweet potato. I had to laugh. He left a couple of pieces of pork and half of the potato for me. I left it there and sure enough about a half hour later, he got up to do something and finished it off like I knew he would. He fell asleep in the reading chair and was snoring louder than the TV. I also took a short nap.
So now I will finish reading the rest of my DC mail and then climb back into my bed. I will turn off the computer for the night. Time to get a good rest.

Finished polishing, washing, greasing, and putting into storage my fine #5 meat grinder plate. The coarse plate and cutter have been polished. I plan to wash, grease and reinstall the coarse plate and cutting blade tomorrow. I have to treat these parts with TLC because replacements are not available for the 50+ year old Oster Model 516.
