On Thursday, June 18th things pretty much followed every other day when I don’t work and Bill does. He gets up first with the alarm and I follow slower. After he leaves for work at 7:15, I went for my walk. The thought process on summer days like this is ‘get out there before it gets too hot’. I think we missed that mark. I say ‘we’ as on my return trip, I met another couple that I see occasionally. I’m glad I was finishing as I think they’d just got going. I think he might be the minister of the corner church.

Back home, it was tea time and I decided to have a piece of toasted rye bread with the rhubarb jam that my buddy, Rob, made for me. ♂ Well, maybe he helped Pat make it, but he saved me a jar and presented it to me. It was delicious and although I felt a bit (a teensy bit) guilty for the delectable sugary, carbish pleasure, I still enjoyed it very much.
Since our downstairs a/c isn’t working properly, I closed windows and the door and turned the upstairs a/c on. With the hall door open, it will cool the Suite down nicely. I then went out and got the paints out and positioned the two deck chairs in the shade again.
Just a few minutes after 9 Rob drove in with his son following on a motorcycle. They were here to get the fiver hitch back in the truck and take the Cedar Creek home. I needed a witness signature and he willingly obliged so I could mail the release letter today for Mom. They were on their way by 9:30 after one more thankyou from me for the use of their trailer. Already, the heat was beating down and around us. There was a nice little breeze coming from the north, so on my back as I worked away.

We could barely see his head and little ears
