August Happenings

September 13th - Sunday - 53 Degrees low this am and cloudy

The month of August has moved along very quickly.  After we got Michelle moved  into her apartment, Lou fractured four ribs, so he was laid up and not able to do much, so I took over the majority of his jobs and that was a bit much for my shoulder.  I have had an injection into it and am awaiting some relief from the discomfort from that.

We had some days of intense heat and humidity so I took advantage of the A/C and cleaned out cupboards and drawers and found afghans that mother had made and I wanted to make sure that all of our grandkids and greatgrandkids had one that she had made, and all have been claimed with the exception of the blue one.  Michelle thought she wanted the brown one, as she wanted to have a brown sofa, and indeed, she did find a brown sofa that someone had discarded and the price was right, so it was a good choice for her.

We had our drive way sealed and the cracks filled the last of the month.  The young man that did it for us did a fine job and we were very pleased with the job.
Ben McClure's truck and equipment.

They spread it all by hand, therefore, there were no splatters.
We certainly appreciated the fine workmanship displayed by Ben on a very warm day.

Lou celebrated his 89th birthday on the 12th of August.  Krista fixed him a wonderful birthday dinner a day early with his favorite cake for dessert.  Home made German Chocolate.  Actually, we celebrated his birthday on three different days with different family members, at two different restaurants.  A great time of celebrating.

The end of the month found us at our Square Dance Camp Out in Morris, PA.  We had a really good turn out this year, and everyone was eager to help and all of the jobs were done quickly and it seemed like we had time to visit and enjoy out time together.  The weather was cool and we were glad that we had heat in our motor home.
