So today I had lunch with old Chuckie Duck better known by me as the Duck.  We had barbecue and it was lovely!  

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and we are having a dinner dance that is over at 9:00 and to me that is perfect.  It starts at 4:00 with a champagne reception and then a plated dinner followed by music and dancing for those that want to do so. (Not me).  Then on New Year's Day we have another plated dinner and then my group has bridge.  

My Tuesday bridge partner is a retired male OB/GYN doc and my Saturday partner is a retired female Psychologist.  I have both ends covered! Lol

Have a great day y'all.  I will too for sure...

Well the ongoing saga of the four new tires continues....  The duck switched cars with me to have them installed (because my life is SO much busier than his!) and the tire placed called saying it would be a bit longer than promised as one of the tires delivered by the LINCOLN DEALERSHIP was defective.  Yes, you read that right!  These are the SAME tires that would have been $1100!  And I never would have known if they hadn't sent one defective one.  Buggers...

So I now have them on the car and I'm ready to rock and roll.  Yay!

 Have a lovely weekend y'all!

So here I am two days in a row!  It's almost lunchtime and I haven't been up long.  I slept really hard last night if you know what I mean.  I am walking around the apartment without any cane or walker and doing a fair job of it but will continue to use the cane for a bit longer outside.

So if you remember I drive a 2010 Lincoln MKX that Sarge bought and it now has 23,000 miles on it.  I don't go far as you can see.  Well I need tires it seems and there is nothing wrong with the car otherwise so I went about pricing them.  I started with the Lincoln dealership where they happily quoted me $1100.00.  For four tires.  Yikes.  Well finally I asked the Duck if he knew any tire people and it turns out he does so I am now waiting for my four new tires to arrive to go get them installed for just a bit over $450.00.  I don't need high performance tires, I don't drive on ice or very fast or very far and I don't know how much longer I will keep the car so that's what I'm getting.  I don't remember what kind they are but Good something, like Goodyear of Goodrich, not sure.  It really IS who you know.

Tonight I shall dine with my Thursday friends,  I have a group T-W-Th-F-S, mostly different people.  The Friday table is mine and I have seven people.  Sunday and Mondays I stay home and cook usually.  I get 20 meals a month and could buy more but I still like to cook so I don't usually.

Someone asked me this morning if I'd ever pair up with another guy.  My answer was "never say never" but I'm sure NOT looking.  I don't want to be a purse or a nurse.  It would be nice to have a guy to hang out with sometimes but if it is to happen it will, I'm not looking.

Have a great day y'all.  I will too for sure.  I'll try to post more often too!

Gosh what a horrible blogger I have been.  I started in 2006 and hardly ever missed a day and visited so many friends blogs.  No more,  I'm just not good at it any more.  I'm sorry but doubt I'll change.  When I think about all the wonderful people I have met both online and some in person as well it makes me so happy, they have enriched my life for sure.

So what is happening in my world these days?  Well I'm still in physical therapy and doing really good.  I don't know why I had so little of it the last time, perhaps I just had the wrong people.  This time I'm doing it here where I live in an outpatient location on the grounds.  It's new and very nice and the therapists are wonderful.  I'm walking both with a cane and sometimes without it and I'm doing strength training to build muscle again.  They have all the top of the line equipment and I am taking full advantage of it.

The year has brought many changes into my life and for the most part they are good changes.  I love where I live and the many new friends I have made here.  It's actually like living on a cruise ship without the ocean.  You dress for dinner at night and you have activities both day and night, as much or as little is you want.  I laugh loud and often and I just love life.

Thanks for visiting!
