School is Out and Summer is Here

Harry and I are having a quiet Memorial Day.  We two old farts are just cruising along with the flow.  Sometimes a slow quiet day is a real smile maker.   Whatever your plans are for today I hope you are safe, secure and happy. 

I did a big happy dance when my Oncologist told me that he doesn't think another PET scan is indicated.  That's one chore I won't have to fit into my schedule every six months.  I'll still have blood work every six months for some time to come. 

We had Taco Day at our gathering yesterday.  Adults ate and complimented the cook (me).  Kids chowed down!!!  The meal was followed with root beer floats.  I wanted to do something a bit different.  I don't remember when we had tacos on the menu.  James said it was a school's out celebration.  Leftovers went home with the boys. 

Jesse is still collecting Pokemon Cards.  James is busy with his pogo stick.  That little fellow can jump for what seems like hours.  He reminds me of Tigger (from Poo) - just bounce, bounce, bounce.  Both boys are starting to get involved with racing remote control cars.  Their past two or three Saturdays have been spent at a local RC race track.  They aren't actually racing yet but they are learning to control the cars.  Did you know that those cars can do burn-outs?  Did you know that the advanced racers have cars that can travel at up to 45 miles per hour?   Nana and Papa are having a learning experience.

Well, that's about it from our sunny world.  My best to everyone.  Thanks for stopping by.

I love root beer floats!!
Glad to hear good news from the doctor.
Kids here have another few weeks of school yet. They have quite a few make up days because of the winter weather.
The remote cars sounds like lots of fun!!

Just stopping by to say hi! Great news about the PET scans. What's on the menu for tomorrow?

Mary said...

Hi, Summer;

Long time no hear. Hope you are enjoying your summer. Have you done the Myrtle Beach vacay this year? Myrtle Beach/Pawleys were my favorites when I was a teenager.

Tomorrow's menu: Pulled pork, fresh green beans and potato salad. Oh yes, and the ever present green salad. Fresh fruit - strawberries, blueberries, peaches, and pears and replacing cake/pie, etc.
