Latest Happenings

I hope this page will give family and friends a place to go if they want to know what is going on in our lives lately.

(This page will be removed once a week to save in my archives, then the current week will be started.  Most likely on a Saturday morning)

Ah yes!  The first full day of Spring!

Moody morning.


As the rain continues to fall.

Wow.  That didn't last long.  It's now just dark gray and POURING down the rain!

Jude, Chance and I went to REI in Bellingham for a little 'retail therapy'.  We then stopped at 'Bob's' for fish and chips.  Time for a nap now.  <grin>

A brief glimpse at the sun as it sinks swiftly in the west.

This morning at 10:37 am is the one year anniversary of the landslide that killed 43 people near Oso, Washington.

Such a horrible moment in time for so many people.  May we have learned enough to keep this type of incident from happening again.

Some loud rain last night.

I just got back from my 6 week post-op visit with the doctor who did my knee surgery.  He says I am doing better than most at this stage!  Hot damn!  <grin>  It feels so good to be able to walk without limping and/or hurting!  The knee cap 'clicks' sometimes when I straighten the leg, and the knee is stiff when it has been immobile for a bit.  All in all I am very happy with the outcome so far!

This x-ray was taken during my 2 week post-op appointment.

A look at Sauk Mountain as I near home after the doctor appointment.  Looks like the snow level came down a bit.

Another cloudy morning with drizzle.

Judy is going to town to pick up her mom and take her shopping.  Jude want's me to leave before her and take Chance so neither Chance nor Judy will feel bad when Jude leaves.  Geez.  Animal abuse of the first degree.  LOL!

At least it dried out enough to take him out for a walk.  AND in time to leave the house before Jude did so Chance is non the wiser...until we get home and he can't find her.

After some time home and inactive Chance seems to be limping again.  I sure would like to get a handle on this so he can go hiking with me when I am able.

Some sunbreaks this afternoon.

WOW!  It turned out to be a really nice afternoon!
