Another busy week folks!
Sunday I traveled to Lionville, Pennsylvania for my 53rd high school class reunion which was held at the Chicago Bar and Grill. I'm one of those class members who likes to go to the class reunions. Actually, I only like to go to my high school class reunion because I know everybody. I don't go to my college class reunion because I wouldn't know a soul there. I went to night school at Peirce College in Philadelphia on the G.I. Bill for three nights a week for four years. My fellow class members were just a blur to me. But my former high school class members, we're all friends and keep in touch over the years.

Jean Timmerman and Ron Tipton - I always sat behind Jean in class back in those alphabetical class seating days.
Notice that we're color coordinated. No, we didn't call each other the night before the reunion to check.

Monday morning I had an early dental appointment (7:30 am). I got my teeth (and partial dentures) cleaned and came out clean without any new cavities. There's no room left for cavities in my mouth!
Wednesday I had the big stress test. THAT took about three hours. I don't want to go through another one of those anytime soon. They don't call it a STRESS TEST for nothing. My electrocardiogram indicates an extra "blip", that is why I've been undergoing a series of heart test the past few weeks. While I was on the treadmill the doctor said the "blip" disappeared. However I am still getting those little whiffs of highs (lightheadedness) all day long. I think that has something to do with the "blips." We'll see, my appointment with my cardiologist is next week and he will go over the findings with me. Funs time folks!. Maybe this old body is slowing down. Do you think?
I'm working Mondays and Tuesdays at the hotel. My new days work out fine. I feel like I have a longer week by having the rest of the week off. Previously I worked Wednesdays and Thursdays. I felt like I had a shortened week. These days work better for me too because all my appointments and other activities seem to occur later in the week. The only downside to my new days is that I don't make as many reservations because the beginning of the week is usually considered the slow time in the hotel business.
Bill and I had a little issue with the car. He can't help himself, he's an inveterate backseat driver. We now have a New Rule. Whenever we go someplace together, he will drive. We were hoping to buy our friend's car but that doesn't look like that's going to happen in our lifetime. This is the friend who has dementia and his partner can't make a decision. The hubcaps on his car already has spider webs. I guess then mold appears on the car they'll be ready to sell. It's just as well. We don't have room to store another car anyway.
