Monday June 3 2018 Blog


My alarm clock didn’t go off yesterday and I woke up at 7:10, I usually set it for 6:30. I checked it when I got up and it was set for 8:30, oh well. I guess we can expect that to happen sometimes.

I had a bowl of cereal, juice and coffee for breakfast; April had juice, coffee and a bagel with cream cheese.

We got dressed and went to pick Marge up for church. We got to church before the service started, but just barely.

After worship we went to the Education Building and Pat taught a good lesson from 1 Timothy, chapter 1. We had 10 present in the class.

We went to lunch with friends after church.

Pat and I shared a new steak fajita on their menu. She ordered a “brownie bite” for dessert.

I didn’t have any dessert, sweets leave an unpleasant taste in my mouth these days. Strange!

We came home and went down for a nap from 3:00 ’til 4:00. When we got up we watched some TV.

For supper we shared a can of Vienna Sausages with crackers.

We watched some more Remington Steele episodes before going to bed.

I received these emails yesterday

I love, love that you are going to get to retire!  Such great news for you and Aunt Pat.

Update here, I’m having shoulder replacement surgery Tuesday, it’s called a reverse shoulder replacement, my shoulder, apparently is worse than my hip was!  Prayer for a speedy recovery will be greatly appreciated. Surgery will be at Good Sam, Corvallis. 

We had hoped to get to go to Omaha with the Beavers for more baseball, but it was not to be this year… ?

Counting down to retirement is super fun exciting!  Are we having a party to celebrate?!?!  I can tell you’re excited, your date on the blog today was the 10th ?

Love, Nancy Jean ?

Bet you can’t wait! I am amazed that you have worked at that demanding job for so long. I know your church will miss your “Handyman Skills” a lot. You have saved them a lot of money with your expertise and your creative ways of fixing problems. God Bless you!



I will be going to work in a while to get the church facilities ready for the week. That will probably be all I get done today. There are some things I would like to do around the house but not sure I will be up to it after working.


Our temperature will be in the mid 70s with no rain today.

That’s all for June 3, Keep in touch.
