Didn't post yesterday - was vegging out after our day long (600 km - 350 mile) round trip for a 30 minute consultation with cardiac surgeon. He seems quite good in terms of explaining things and answering our questions. We left home 8:30 a.m. and arrived back 8:15 p.m.
I drove most of way there and Linda drove most of the way back -- neither of us likes driving after dark and Linda was pretty stressed for a while until I realized that the headlight lens were covered with grit -- when I cleaned them it was like Genesis 1:3 -- and it was almost tangible the wave of relaxation that Linda felt. Rest of trip was very smooth.
I'll talk more about the health issues next post -- this is an interlude
Our daughter flew in yesterday for the weekend and we've been enjoying a visit with her. Had a great game of cribbage with a close finish -- but she beat her Dad -- Sigh!!
This morning we SKYPed with our oldest son and his family. Got caught up on all the things our garandson and granddaughter are doing.
Then we had a long phone conversation with our other son in BC and covered all the goings on in our lives and got caught up on his efforts to wrap up his dissertation and get licenced as a neuropsychologist .
Later we enjoyed watching a pair of pileated woodpeckers, a red headed woodpecker and a downy woodpecker and lots of chick-a-dee's eating at our suet balls.
This afternoon we went for a walk through the Bon Soo Winter Carnival -- and that's why there was "Snow" time to post anything more than this.
