Fathers Day 2017

Seems like it was only yesterday when I last posted on WordPress, Wait a sec, it was only a day ago.

I awoke to check my email and saw that I received an eGift card from him (and my grandsons and daughter-in-law) for Fathers Day. The card was fro Dunkin Donuts, which means it will be used…and used, and used. I sent him a JibJab ecard. His birthday is Tuesday so the gift to him will be sent then.

In fact, I went to Dunkin Donuts this morning to pick up breakfast. Another slow line in the drive-thru. It seemed like the line would move along fine for a couple of cars, then there would be a hold-up, then move along okay for another couple of cars, then another hold-up…and so on.

Where Have I Been?

And so, another half-year has passed since my last blog post. And again, I’m not sure why it has been so long…except maybe that I don’t feel like I’ve anything to write about )or should that be “about which to write?”

Life here in Cleveland, TN jas been the same. I continue to volunteer for the Red Cross locally almost every morning. I also volunteer virtually for the Red Cross’ Connecticut and Rhode Island Region and am starting to help their Crossroads Divison (Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia…so I’m keeping busy.

This coming Tuesday (June 20th) will me mu son, Tom’s, 51st birthday. There’s nothing like having grown kids (or in my case, the singular “kid”) to make you feel old. Of course, there are my two grandsons, Andrew and Will to help my that feeling.

Took the car (2015 Nissan Murano) in for routine service this week. Had the 25,000-mile service performed even though the car only has 23,553 miles on it. The service department also found the source of the rattle over the right side front door. They ordered a new rail and replaced it on Thursday. When they did, the discovered another rattle related to a drip strip, which they also replaced. That seems to have fixed it, but we’ll be keeping “an ear out for it” to make sure it’s gone before next month’s trip up north.
