Good morning folks! How is everyone doing on yet another hot, muggy summer day? Here at Casa Tipton-Kelly we're managing to get through this hot, hot summer.
We don't go out of the house much after ten in the morning in order to avoid the heat and humidity. I would love to do some yard work but hate it when I'm soaked in sweat after only five minutes outside. Then it's inside to peel off my stinky, wet T-shirt and take a shower.
Both of us, being the advanced ages that we have arrived at, have to be careful we don't become overcome by the heat. There have been a few times I got woozy while outside working pulling weeds. Same with Bill while he was checking for bag worms.
For the medical update that I teased in my blog banner title, my leg is doing great! After a year and a half of tearing my quadricep leg muscle, my leg is 98% normal. I walk every morning the length of our development, which is about a mile. I try to walk in the evening too but sometimes I bike. It's so good to have my leg back. Walking was always one of my treasures. I have always enjoyed walking. And in my opinion walking is the best form of exercise next to swimming.
The VA didn't call me back to let me know if Bill is eligible for cataract surgery. They were supposed to call me back "24 to 36 hours" but of course they didn't. They have a program called "Choice" which enables veterans who are more than 40 miles from the nearest VA facility to use a local doctor. I just made a series of calls to get authorization for his cataract surgery. Several phone calls with live people then one that I had to leave a message. They're going to call me back, I hope. If not I go through the same routine tomorrow.
Oh it is so hot out today. The humidity is the killer. Of course I'm semi-soaked. Stinking up this shirt I'm wearing. Nothing like that sweaty smell to put one in the Summertime Mood.
Off to work today folks. I expect I'll get a lot of calls for availability this weekend at the hotel. We're full! And NO, we DON'T have a pool. Try the Delaware Bay.
