I Didn't Go to Jared's. .

. . but I did go to Sam's Club today.  What a trip!  Harry was nice enough to go with me and help with the shopping.  We had two - that's correct - TWO carts full.  Most was paper products and cleaning stuff.  Also other staples.   Except for milk, OJ, and eggs we can avoid the grocery for at least a month  - maybe more.

The grand sons look forward to Papa's BBQ chicken.  That's on the menu for Sunday gathering.  All the local kids will be here.  We always think of the two who live far, far away and wish they could be here, too.  Last Sunday everyone came for a short visit but we didn't have a meal.  I was preparing for my PET scan so we just played it cool. 

Speaking of the PET scan, I was given a light injection of ativan (spelling??) because I'm claustrophobic.   I was given the same dosage as before but this time it wasn't enough.  The minute my head went in "the tube" my heart started racing.  Result:  Stop the show and administer more ativan.  Wow!!  That drug laid me low.  No racing heart - just peaceful sleep that lasted the rest of the day.  Medical appointments can get real interesting.

Our oldest son, Joe, is finally at home in his new place.  At least for the most part.  There are things here that need to be packed and moved.  We do miss him but we're happy for him.  He's still teaching CISCO related classes.  Joe is a good teacher but he surely has a complicated but boring subject to teach.  He is perfectly comfortable with it, though.

The last day of school is May 25.  The boys are excited!  They have big plans that will keep the grownups busy.  In a few weeks the growups will be praying for school to begin once more.   I plan to just roll with the flow.  James is in a pogo stick frame of mind.  Jesse hasn't made his focus known yet.  I'm sure he will very soon.  The boys are so grown up.  Jesse (8 years old) is only about 1 inch shorter than me! 

That's the news from Hooperville for now.  Hope everyone is well and looking forward to the warm weeks ahead.

Hi Mary, glad things going good for you. Hard to believe another school year is coming to an end. I think here in MD they don't get out until near the end of June this year - lots of snow days to make up. I like the end of the school year because there's a lot less traffic in the mornings. : )
A happy day to you my friend.

I didn't know you were getting a PET scan. Is that routine? I hope your results are excellent.

Good to hear from you, as always.
