Yep, again. We really, really try hard to organize all our appointments for the same day but sometimes it just won’t work. I had appointments for a haircut (made five weeks ago) and an eye exam today and of course I couldn’t get the appointment with the orthopedic surgeon for today, only for yesterday, so off we went again this morning. My hip feels better, the ride to Billings didn’t make me want to scream so the trip to the surgeon was worth it yesterday.
Michael had some routine blood work drawn then we headed for Costco where I had my eyes examined and ordered new glasses and contacts. Up in the Heights we retrieved another hat Michael had Law Dog Hats clean for him—a black one—I’m not used to seeing my sweet cowboy in a black hat!
Lunch at our favorite place, Jake’s then off to look at new cars—nope, we aren’t in the market for a new car but Nat seems to be!! Nat has a truck, a nice Chevrolet, six years old with only 30,000 miles on it. A couple years ago he started saying he wanted a new truck and we talked him out of it. Now he has become more insistent—he wants a smaller vehicle, easier for him to get into and he wants Michael and I to buy it!!!!
I suggested he and Michael go look at vehicles when they go to the dermatologist in Billings next week. Nat’s reply, “no, I want nothing to do with looking at cars, I want you and Mike to do it.” I said, “now wait a minute, what if you don’t like the one we pick???” Nat replies, “well then I would have someone to blame now wouldn’t I???” Good grief—he is 91 years old, a truck with 30,000 miles on it is going to last his lifetime for sure but oh, well—I guess we are car shopping!!!!
Finally we are home and relaxing. I am filling the hummingbird feeders at least once a day, watering plants once a day, there is always something to do!
A friend had this posted on Facebook today—I love it!
