Happy July 4th! (photo taken by Tony Ursino at the Big Timber rodeo in late June)
Yesterday afternoon my cellphone rang and the caller ID said it was “Chuck!” I literally cried tears of joy when I heard his voice—it’s been a long, long seven weeks when at times we didn’t know if he would recover from his massive heart attack. Friday Chuck was moved to a rehab unit in the same town in which they live—much better for Mom and less driving for the whole family!
Nat and Barb came up for lunch—we enjoyed steaks, garlic mashed potatoes and green peas. Dessert was ice cream—not homemade but still good! It’s so good to have Nat visit for Sunday lunch again and we are so glad to have Barb doing the driving for him!
Lots more packing going on—we sanitized the water tank in the truck camper by filling it and adding a small amount of bleach. The first time I ever sanitized a RV water tank I assumed “more bleach is better.” Even after emptying the tank and refilling I swear my hair was several shades lighter from washing with the chlorine-y water!! Didn’t make that mistake this time, just added a little, emptied the tank and refilled.
We don’t have any big July 4 plans this year, in years past we’ve had a gathering of friends and neighbors but this year I just wanted to “be.” So, tomorrow it will just “be” the cowboy, Emmi and me. We will be departing on our adventure soon—a few more sleeps as John and Brenda say!
