Gay's Days These Days


Hi Friends,

I thought you might like an update.

When I began this blog post, I'd been awake since 12:47 AM. Yuck. It's misery not to be able to sleep. I have nights like that.  Too many to talk about.

We spent last week in the Canadian Rockies. We've been there before, but hubby wanted a trip down Memory Lane.  I did a travel video there years ago, and I'd love to sell the footage. It's great stuff, but it needs to be digitized and updated. I have no desire to do that. I contacted one of the hotels about buying it. I wish you could see it. If you have a workable VHS, I'll sell you a copy!

 My knee was fine while we were away. Thank the Lord! We walked 2/3 miles each day. Some of it was on uneven ground and a bit difficult. We came home and I did laundry. On day two back at home, I couldn't walk. My right knee decided it had experienced enough. So, it quit.  I made an appointment for an MRI at the end of this month. It's the first thing that is required for a knee replacement.

 I've been icing and elevating since then, but I'm up and about now. However, my knees are one of the reasons I didn't sleep.

 My house is a mess. I'm not kidding. I hope to get to it soon. 

I finally saw Shelley yesterday. It had been about two weeks since I saw her. She remembered me! Yay! The knees, plus, seven people at her memory care facility have Covid, and visitors aren't allowed.  I know she needed supplies, and I needed to see her.

 Paul is getting shots in his eye for a leaky blood vessel. Doesn't that sound awful?  I have a friend that is getting shots in her eardrum. That sounds horrific too.  The things we go through, but it's worth it if it helps.

We enjoyed the scenery in Canada. However, two of the luxury hotels aren't air conditioned, and Canada was having a heat wave. So much for escaping Texas heat. Right? The picture with cabins above are similar to the ones where we were. The mornings were cool, and we needed jackets, but the nights felt like  August in Texas with no A/C or ceiling fans.

Traveling is wonderful and it is a luxury. I regret that many can't see these stunning views. I plan to share more of them and tell you more details as we go along. I just thought you might like to hear from me.
