Seems like I have been running hard for the last week.
Mimi and I both had a doctors visit. She is doing great except she could use a little more iron in her diet. He suggested she eat spinach and red meat. DID HE SAY RED MEAT? Well, that statement is right up Princes alley. So last night we had spinach but no red meat. My A1C is down 2 tenths of a point which makes in the good range. I am to continue the new diabetic meds for another month and he will check my A1C again but this time I am to fast before I go so he can get a better handle on another" blood count". While we were there he had the flu shots available so we both got one. We went home for substance and then it was off to the Church for visitation for one of the Garden Club members. We usually take this dear lady to the Garden Club and had done so that week and she died the next day. It was one of those surreal experiences. MAKES YOU VERY AWARE HOW PRECIOUS EACH DAY HAPPENS TO BE. Then my best friend came up from Georgia and we enjoyed a day together at her mother's home. Next day I got up at 3AM to go with Prince to meet a nice fellow and his grandson in Pulaski. The young man really impressed me as his manners were delightful. It is so nice to meet young people with good manners. After the meeting we stopped in Columbia at Stan's restaurant for a log roller breakfast. That afternoon, we went to wedding reception at the Coach House for our dear friends youngest son and his new wife. The wedding was in Florida so several of us did not make the wedding but it was such a treat to have a delayed reception at home so those of us could be part of their special time. I have been trying to play catch up every since the first of the week, so this is the first time I have been to blog land . Yesterday my computer time was catch up on my emails. Whew they do stack up if you do not check them in a week.
The kitty justice is if I were a truck I would need a new set of wheels.

You are sure putting on some miles with all that activity. Hope things slow down a bit for you.

Glad you like my humor. Peace

It seems I have been moving as fast as the leaves have been falling. Peace

Dear Dianne ~~ I am sorry you have been so busy and hope things settle down now for a while. Glad the doctor's reports were good. I loved the stories and photos of Davy Crockett too. Thanks for sharing.
Glad you liked the Footy Boots story
etc. Hope you get some rain soon.
Take care my friend, I wish you enough too. Peace and Love, Merle.

Whether I take a shot or not, I always get the flu in winter, so I've stopped taking the shot.
I'm usually not in favor of conventional meds. I think there are natural alternatives for almost all health issues.

By the way, that's a nice truck in the picture.

You've been one busy lady. To bad about the lady you usually pick up to take to the Garden Club meeting. Yes, life is very precious. Glad you had a good check up at the doctors. Now try to have a relaxing week-end. Oh by the way, do like I do when I am going to be too busy to read my e-mails, post a message saying you will be away from your computer for a while and send the message on such and such a date. Sure does help.

Busy is not so bad but when you need to get new tires, it is time to take a rest break. We got a few showers and it settled the dust but we need a week of nice steady rain. Peace

Glad you liked the truck photo. I use to feel the flu shot was not effective until one year I lost a week of my life to the virus . I never ever want to feel that way again, so I take the shot. Peace

Yes it was surreal about our friend but to go quickly to me is always a Blessing. When I get busy I really just forget about computer manners. But that is a great idea. Thanks. Peace
