My Cousins Ring

My cousin John and wife are down visiting and they brought a memoir of his younger brother, Ken, who passed away several months ago. His Desert Storm ring. I was already out of the Navy by that time.

The above photo was taken June 1988, in Maryland. It’s good to have a reminder of my cousin.

Ken was poisoned by bad water at Camp Legeune marine base. He was a Navy Corpsman there .

Today Daisy is going to the veterinarian about her hips. She seems to be having a hard time getting up from a laying down position.

Happy Friday!

Aunt Aimee

My Aunt Aimee is sick. She has covid. She’s 103 years old and was in perfect shape until covid got her. I hope she can pull through

Mixed up the order of my morning routine this morning. Walked dogs first, before feeding animals and plants.

Not a big deal, seemed like I was saving time, but now, time to go to work comes same time as it always does.

Have a good day.

Friends Faux Family Farewell

My visitors leave today, I am quite sad about it. It was a very short trip.

Yesterday was so rainy, we could barely make it outside. But we had a two meal day consisting of a late big breakfast and and a late big lunch.

The highlight of the trip, I suppose, was Jessika taking the intro to scuba class at Don Fosters.

I am so sad to see them go. My life is forever enriched, seeing Jessika again. She was born (with her twin sister, Veronika) on the day I got out of the Navy. I wish they were my daughters.

Tomorrow it’s back to work for me. This morning my weigh in was 163.8, pounds an alarming new record low weight.

Have a great week!

International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day! International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, global holiday, celebrated annually on March 8 to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women.

My mother and sister fly out today. It’s been a good visit. I’m taking them to the airport this morning and then going to work.

I hope you have a wonderful International Women’s Day and a fantastic Tuesday!

210 Duolingo Days

I meant to post at 200, but now it’s 210 days in a row I have been studying with Duolingo. I almost lost my streak once but found a way to earn Stars. (Once you run out of stars, they try to make you pay.) But by “practicing” lessons, you can earn Stars. Then you can complete a task in order to continue the streak.

My mother and sister fly out tomorrow. At first it seemed like 2 weeks was too long, but now it seems like 2 weeks is too short.

it’s another Monday, ugh. I slept ok, feel pretty good. I got a negative covid self-test this morning.(twice a week for work) and the weather is looking good for the next couple of days.

All is well. Have a good week too!

Yet Another Happy Friday!

Its the start of my mother and sisters last weekend here.

We have no firm plans, we’ve pretty much covered the bases, as far as tourist things are concerned. We’ll go out to dinner, the beach and anything else they want to do.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
