Our dear friend, Lester is in the hospital. He developed an infection in his foot that abscessed and consequently, he celebrated Christmas with his family in his hospital room. Hopefully, there will be no more complications and all the treatment he is receiving (antibiotics, etc.) will help him heal quickly so he will be good as new real soon. His wife. our precious Gloria has been spending as much time as she can at the hospital as well as holding down the fort at the store (Rocks ’n Rhinestones) by herself with moral support from her friends and family. I spent Thursday and Friday keeping her company and assisting her when I could. It has been a long time since I “worked” a full day and I was surprised when I got through it without too much trauma to this old body of mine. We all will continue to back her up and do what we can as long as Les is out on “sick leave.”
The rain is still coming down in buckets in waves interspersed with a ray of sunshine here and there along with a rainbow or two on occasion. My favorite gift from daughter, Bobbie is a set of silk long underwear. They will get some serious use this winter to keep me from catching pneumonia! I cannot get warm in this damp and cold climate. Come on spring!!!
I apologize for the tardiness of this blog and thank you all for stopping by!
Until next time ...
