It is very tempting to talk about all the ways in which I’m falling apart, but I’ll save that for a specific Whining Post, so you can know to scroll right on past it. I will say that it’s heartening the way that people are so solicitous when they see me coming with the walker (as well they should - I'm a menace with that thing!). I’m embarrassed by it, but it’s still nice to know that people are paying attention to the gimps of the world. Also, I’ll post this again next week, but Dr. M & I took a nice Blue Ridge Parkway ramble today & he posted some of our pictures. Go here to see them.

I did the nursing home/church routine and then later Dr. M & I drove around. I posted this picture on Facebook & you should have seen some of the commentary. People have very dirty minds (she said self-righteously).

Memorial Day at the Bug Household.
I am enamored of all the prickly pear cacti that we see around! I might have to have some for our yard.
Dr. M’s good buddy, Roy, came over for an ear scratch. We like having a neighbor-dog – and no we don’t want a dog of our own :)

As Dr. M said, we have the furriest birds ever!

My sweetheart made a sweet heart of impatiens for me!
Thursday, June 1st
No picture! Well, we took one, but it was the same as the one we took on the 2nd & that one is much better, so…

Heather the Sheep found a new home! She’d been living on the deck, but as you can see, she is the perfect guardian for the new impatiens bed.

This was a big day for us. We went to Charlotte so I could have an MRI (to determine whether I have damage from metal toxicity – I think). I was pretty nervous about it. My last MRI experience wasn’t fabulous. But they gave me valium & ear plugs, and it was an open MRI, so I made it through ok.
We weren’t able to bring any of our day lilies with us from Ohio, so we’re very happy with the volunteers that are coming up by our driveway.
That evening we went to a graduation party for my cousin’s daughter. We had a great time – got to visit with family that we haven’t seen in years. And I tried on these very fashionable glasses. I especially like how they make the end of my nose look so round. Ha!
This coming week I'm going to try to find that fine balance between being
stubborn independent & not giving Dr. M a heart attack. Wish us luck!
