There has been a lot of out of the sorts things happening. Oh not to worry, nobody died or anything like that. Oh, wait. How to put this delicately? I'll discuss later in the post.
These deer appreciated the new flatter surface and the free dinner.
On this morning, I had the pancakes, eggs over easy and some wimpy bacon, and it was pretty good. Yes, I'm one of those people who puts the eggs on top of the pancakes and eats it all together. I'll try the tacos next time.
We went to the Walmart on Military Drive at Loop 410 a few days ago. I can't even imagine why. Anyway, I usually feel good if I can just dodge the discarded diapers in the parking lot, but as a bonus, I was rewarded with a good parking spot near the front.
I've made mention in the past that my father has seen better days. He is a wonderful man with the friendliest personality that those who know him have probably ever met. In spite of the fact that he may not know those friends or in many cases, family members, that personality stays with him. Many people who find themselves in the very last weeks or months of their lives become cranky. They might be afraid of what is happening to them or they may just be plain pissed off that people continue to poke and prod them. My father is at home with my mother and assisted by hospice care as well as my sisters and brothers who can be there.
I went to work and informed my boss and his boss that I might have to leave for my father, and that death was most likely imminent. As one would expect, the outpouring of concern and offers of assistance were immediately forthcoming and appreciated. When I went into work following the weekend, it would turn out that my boss lost his father unexpectedly, and his boss lost his mother the following day, even more unexpectedly.
I know this sounds funny, but what they hell do you say? Uh, sorry my dad is still alive and kicking? I am so sorry for their loss, but perhaps it is my years of being in the military and the gallows humor that often comes with it, but it makes you want to chuckle over such a thing. One of life's mysteries, I guess.
Scobey. It has been 12 years and we wish so much that he could have seen the life we have made out here in Natalia. So many trees - he probably would have climbed some just to show the kids how it is done.
