A “Git R Done” Day

It was up early and out of the house to make my doctor’s appointment at the VA Outpatient Clinic in Pensacola.  I had my blood work done a couple of weeks ago so the Doc reviewed all my numbers with me.  I’m happy to report that I’m fit as a fiddle – all of my numbers are within acceptable limits except my BMI.  Both the nurse, who did my intake, and the doctor scolded me; they agree with Judy that I need to be 99% fat free.

Okay, so I arrived at home just in time to take Miss Judy on a special outing to the library, Wally World, and Walgreens (Judy’s Big Day Out!!!).  After we stashed our groceries, I changed out the anode in the hot water tank.  I almost messed up!!  I forgot to turn the electric heating element off before draining the tank.  Fortunately I remembered before it imploded itself – whew!!  That’s one more task off the good Ol’ Ta Do List.

Did I tell you that I really enjoy my Nook (easy Terry).  The missus and I whipped up some iced tea and put out our new lawn chairs to spend a couple of hours sitting in the sun/shade while reading.  Judy is reading a Debbie Macomber book and I’m reading a John Grisham book.  Grisham is my favorite author; his writing style holds your attention and he keeps his stories “clean”. No bad language or lurid sex scenes – I always say that sex is not a spectator sport.

We attended the four o’clock social and then returned home to have breakfast for dinner.  Tuesday night is NCIS night (one of my three favorite shows – NCIS, Bones, and History Detectives).  So, thar ya have it; another fast paced day in the life.

May God Bless And Keep You Until Next Time - - - - -    


  1. That "Ta Do" list is shrinking fast. Before you know it we'll be seeing you two again in Maine!

  2. Good for you for remembering to turn off the electric on the water heater before draining it. The heater will last less than a minute without water in the tank. Don't ask how I know this.

  3. Sounds like a pleasant day, at least the part that included lawn chairs, iced tea, and two of my favorite authors! Thank goodness for On Demand - I missed NCIS and Bones, I was watching Wizard of Oz with the grands! Blessings on ya.
