It’s not very often I make it through a whole day without taking about a dozen photos of something or another.  Today was almost one of those rare days until a pair of Rose Breasted Grosbeaks flew into the front yard after supper.  I had just sat down at the computer to start on tonight’s post.  Thanks for the photo op guys:))
While re-arranging the sun room a bit today I came across a scrap piece of paper with a bunch of dates written on it.  I quickly realized the dates were from May last year.  There were 7 of them & they were all medical appointments regarding a large kidney stone I had.  That stone was finally eliminated in a laser procedure on May 28th.  Glad it’s not last year at this time.
We are still patiently waiting for results from a few medical tests Kelly had last week.  She has not been feeling well & her Doctor confirmed a low grade fever today & said she is sending Kelly to an Internist in Stratford.
GROANER’S CORNER:((  A duck walks into a feed store and asks, "Got any duck feed?" The clerk tells him, "No, we don't have a market for it so we don't carry it." The duck says, "Okay," and leaves. The next day, the duck walks in to the feed store and asks, "Got any duck feed?" Again the clerk says no and the duck leaves. Next day, the duck walks in, and asks, "Got any duck feed?" The clerk says, "I've told you twice, we don't have duck feed, we've never had duck feed and we never will have duck feed. If you ask me again, I'll nail your feet to the floor." The duck leaves. The next day, the duck walks in and asks, "Got any nails?" "No!" answers the clerk. "Got any duck feed?"

  5. hope that Kelly feels better soon!!!

  6. So glad and relived that Kelly is getting some advanced care. It is time to get to the bottom of her not being up to par. Prayers for you two.

  7. My prayers are with you & Kelly. I hope the doctors don't find anything serious.


  8. Hope Kelly feels better soon and gets some answers about what is making her feel so crummy.

  9. Very happy Kelly is getting some further care...When our "mate" is not feeling well, it sure puts life in perspective...We all take life way too much for granted..Sending good Karma to the Bayfield family

  10. Thinking of Kelly and hoping all goes well. Don't forget to be tested for Valley Fever. Drs outside of southern states aren't always familiar with VF.

  11. Wishing Kelly well, and hoping she finds out what is wrong and that it is simple and fixable!

  12. Our thoughts and prayers going out to Kelly! Hope she is soon on the mend!
