Well, we've learned that Richard's presence will next be needed for a funeral-planning meeting at the church tomorrow afternoon.  So, we're going to proceed with our plans to go to Cincinnati, load up my car and Rob's, and come back here for dinner together.

Bye for now.

TOD:

My mom has kept virtually all remembrances, ephemera, etc., from my school days.  All my report cards, of course, and photos I had gathered of classmates are included in a box full of other photos and remembrances/mementos, etc.

Among them are my first grade reading books....Alice and Jerry.  I know many had Dick and Jane, but some of us had the illustrated stories of Alice and Jerry and their dog Jip.

Dear DRs, we received word about an hour ago that Richard's brother John passed away at 9:15 this morning.

My condolences, Ginny.  Thoughts of comfort to you and your family.

DR Ginny, DH Richard & DS Rob, we are sorry you have lost such a beloved member of your family.  Sometimes life is very, very unfair.

As for the Topic of the Day...

My mom saved all of my grade school (K-8) class pictures and report cards.  She assembled some wonderful photo albums for/of me and my brothers. I, in turn, saved almost all of the pictures and report cards from my high school years.  However, I never purchased my own copy of my Junior Year yearbook, and it's actually the one yearbook I wish I had since it was a good year for school activities for me. But at least I have my brothers' copies to reference.  There is also one box of high school Drama programs that I keep hoping will turn up some day.  Alas, I believe it may have gotten thrown out in one my moves.

I also have a binder filled with my judging sheets from the various piano festivals and competitions I participated in.

I was in a great deal of pain this morning, but I took my Vicodin at 6 and got ready for my day. My driver's license is expiring in a couple of weeks, and I was determined to renew it today.

I get in the car and drive to the bureau (we have to take an eye test and pass the roadsign test to renew). The driving position in the car is bad for my affliction, and my arm started killing me on the way there. It's a 15-20 minute drive to the bureau, and I almost turned around a couple of times, but at stop signs, I contort my arm around my back and ease the strain on the parts that were causing distress.

Anyway, I get to the bureau, but the parking lot is suspiciously empty. I walk up to the door, and there's a sign saying they were CLOSED today from 8-1!!! THE ONE DAY I PICK TO GO DO THIS, AND IT'S CLOSED!

I guess I have not been living right. I wanted to burst out crying right then and there.

That's terrible, Matt!  Hope everything goes well with the MRI tomorrow and they can find what's wrong!

My MRI is today at noon.  Oy.

JMK, hope your MRI goes well, too!

At my work, we have an employee bulletin that's sent out (and posted on our Intranet) every week.  Sometimes they need to fill space and this week, they had this joke:

Quote
Two American tourists are driving through Wales.  They decide to stop for a bite to eat in the village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysili ogogogoch.

Baffled by the name, one of them turns to a local and asks, “Would you please say where we are—very slowly?”

The Welshman leans over and says, very slowly, “Burrr-gerrr Kinngg.”

;D

Back from the dentist.  He did want to give me a shot of Novocain, but I said I'd rather not, and everything was fine.  He was only removing the temporary crown and putting on the new porcelain crown - it was quick and painless.

Do you think it would have been possible for everyone to get a group rate on their MRIs?

And for S. Woody White, hope you have the day off for your birthday!!

Well, that was the plan. His schedule as first posted was for a five day 37 hour work week (he's part-time and is only supposed to get 35 hours maximum) with today off. Yesterday the boss added a 4hour (1-5) shift for today. Well, at least he was to get off by 5 (we need to be seated in the restaurant by 6 for the three-course specials). At 7:30 AM the store supervisior called and asked him if could please come in earlier - so it's now 9-4 - at least he's off an hour earlier. That puts his part-time work-week up to 44 hours.

The birthday dinner will be at LUPO DI MARE CUCINA ITALIANA. The chef is big on maximizing local ingredients.

Relaxing a little, although we're having some drama on the Gaily/Minsky's front - first time, but hopefully all will be well.
