My Way




 Oh I sure did do it my way. 

Yes, I'm still playing with this lip synch Wombo app that Pat sent to me a few weeks ago.

On this latest version I'm lip synching Frank Sinatra's "I Did It My Way."  God, I wish I had this kind of talent. Not just the singing voice but the physical expressions. Looking at this short video I see how stilted I am but that there was always the possibility that I could do more. It's too late in my life now to change. I am one of those old men who is absolutely set in his ways. 

My new "way" is staying home all day caring for Bill. He's improving but will never get back to where he was before his strokes in January. With medication he could live another six months to a year and even eighteen months. Of course one never knows but I am heartened that he is able to get around on his own now. He can go to the bathroom by himself but he still needs me to help him shower, which tomorrow is shower day (he hates "shower day"). 

First thing in the morning when I get up I check on him via the baby/elder camera I installed in his room. He's usually there waiting for me. I wash his edema swollen legs and feet which seems to be helping his condition. Then we go upstairs for breakfast. I always make him the same thing, oatmeal with a heaping tablespoon of sugar. Half and half is his preferred addition to his porridge/oatmeal. Before his oatmeal I give him is daily morning medications. In the evening he receives more medications. 

Once a week his hospice nurse visits. The past two weeks she's had a helper with her. They're both very good. They'e helped us a lot, unlike the health care workers who were more disruptive and didn't really help us. 

After breakfast I tell Bill I'm going "into my office", which is where I go to check my e-mails, blogs, pay bills, etc. Always something to do there. 

Later on in the morning we take our Daily Ride. Bill do so love his rides. I also look forward to the rides, they are not a chore for me. Now that I'm to going to work at the hotel twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays), I need to go out. Where we usually go for our daily rides is Food Lion or the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store. Tomorrow is special because we're making the long trip to BJ's Wholesale Club in Millsboro. Always a nice long ride. At BJ's I can buy a rotisserie chicken for $4.99 which is bargain. Bill doesn't eat meat any more nor do I eat brown meat. I used the breast meat on the chicken to make my favorite chicken salad with apples and cranberries. I put the brown meat and the rest of the chicken carcass out back on our lawn for the local vultures to dispose of. Bill likes sitting in his chair in the sun room and watching the vulture pecking order to see who gets to take off with that chicken carcass.

Doesn't this sound exciting folks? Works for us. Just the way this Wombo app works for me. I've played it numerous times, and it always makes me smile. I hope it brings a smile to your face too.

Ron, my hero! Your telling us about and how you are doing it your way is so gosh darn cathartic for me. It is helping me to stand up for myself and say to the doctors, lawyers and my know it all friends "Hey, it's my life and I listened to you all and now I am doing it my way. I am becoming more and more content as each week passes. Following you, and some of your friends, has helped me validate what I am doing to help myself and it's working. Have a nice day Ron and keep on smiling and doing it your way. Enjoy your week! The same to the peeps, too.

Ron,

I am pleased with how you are approaching things. Your spirits seem to be rising. Bill being able to do somethings for himself is a help to you both.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647
you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

I have been married to my husband Williams Brandon for 9 years, recently i noticed a change in his character as he suddenly developed the habit of coming home late, i then discovered he was seeing another lady who he initially told me was his new co-worker, i confronted him about this and it led to fights and arguements and he eventually abandoned me and my kids to live with his new found lover i was totally depressed, this continued till a friend of mine told me about a love spell caster from South Africa who cast love spells to re-unite broken relationships and marriages, i contacted this love spell caster via his email and he casted a re-union love spell through the effect of our pictures and my husband came back to me within 72 hours apologising for all the pain he caused me, we are back together again, contact this love spell caster for your marriage or relationship problems via his email drakhigbespellhome7@gmail.com   or +2349021374574.
