Wow, this summer has gone by fast. Just a couple more weeks an it's Labor Day, the official end of summer. I think the reason the summer seemed to go by so fast was because of the long heat wave. We stay inside most of the time, neither one of us can take the heat and humidity. Two weeks after Labor Day, summer if officially at an end here in Summer Resort Land.
I worked at the hotel last night. Busy again. I'm working again tonight and tomorrow night then on Friday I go to the VA Outpatient clinic my new lab testing. Then I'm off the weekend and don't go to work until next Thursday. I'm looking forward to having that time off while I await the results of my PSA test.
All kinds of crazy things are going through my mind but one thing I'm not all that concerned about is if I die. Hey, we're all going to die someday. It's just that some may know when they die. In a way that is an advantage because you can plan. I wish I had called my friend Ron B. and talked to him before he died. Ron had terminal cancer which he knew of. He and his wife took a trip to Europe after he got his diagnosis.
My friend and former worker Anne Marie sent me an e-mail when she was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. She said she was "overwhelmed" and that was the last I heard from her. I did hear that she took another trip to Acapulco, Mexico with her family. I worked with her back in the late 70's when she took her first trip to Acapulco and remember how much she loved Acapulco.

If I got that kind of news the only trip I would make is another trip down south like Bill and I did this past May. By the way, I know I still have to post about that trip. I have tons of great pictures. This was the second year that Bill and I made the Swing Through the South. We loved it. We're already planning our trip for next spring. I like visiting my paternal ancestors' cemeteries and also the beauty of the South.

So everything is still in a holding pattern here until I get a resolution of my high PSA score. I want to write about something more positive and happy but I'm having a hard time getting into that mood.
